4.09/5  rDev +5.7%
look: 4.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Look: beautiful opaque black with a single-finger cream colored head that persisted through out. Pretty amber hues when held up to the light.

Smell: biscuity, malty chocolate and vanilla.

Taste: nice gentle malty biscuity flavor.

Feel: not sure how I feel about its mouthfeel. Maybe I need more time for the nitro style to grow on me. It is undeniably smooth but I can't help thinking the flavor would be boosted by more carbonation.

Overall: I'm a fan and while I wouldn't go out of my way to pick it up again, if I saw it I'd likely buy it.

4/5  rDev +3.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Small, very dense cream-colored head surmounts a dark mahogany body, which is utterly opaque, even before a strong light. The head, though slight, retains superbly, with a thick sheet of unbroken lacing coating the glass walls.

Aroma: Vanilla, bourbon and wood dominate the aroma, the latter being rather pronounced.

Taste: Opens with wood, vanilla, and toasted malt notes. A mild undercurrent of wood carries throughout the taste, and with it, hints of bourbon. There is a subtle note of coffee, some roasted nuts, and some bitter cocoa. Late in the taste a little burnt caramel presents. Finishes with a lingering woody, slightly smoky note.

Mouth feel: Smooth, soft, quite pleasant.

Drinkability/notes: Quite pleasant and drinkable, a beer best suited to chocolate desserts and cool, dark days. Nitro Vanilla Porter manages to be complex and yet not overwhelm, a difficult task admirably performed.

Presentation: Packaged in a standard sixteen-ounce aluminum can, served in a New Belgium Brewing chalice.

Medium dark brown, creamy head and ok lacing.

Flavors are vanilla and slight malt and it’s watered down and kinda flavorless aside from the vanilla. It is smooth though.

It’s boring.

Wow was so hopeful based on some reviews but surprisingly tremendous disappointment! Wouldn't call this a porter, more like a watery Black and Tan made from some bad Black and Tan beers. No hint of vanilla.... I typically like a Victory at Sea or Robust Porter this Nitro is just not worthy!
