Real vanilla beans can enhance the flavor of stouts and porters, but this is not an example of how to do it. Ugh! This tastes more like a bad soft drink than a beer.

I poured it into a frozen porter glass. Not much head, good lacing though. Front is nice and carbonated. The finish is sweet and smooth. Can taste vanilla and nutty notes. Good to have with chocolate ice cream.

"Best enjoyed by 9/27/18"; drank 7/20/18 @ the Yarchives.

Brown/orange appearance.

A violent pour yielded a big tan head; strong, frothy lace.

Creamed corn, mild vanilla, mild brown sugar & faint vanilla notes in the nose.

Creamy medium mouthfeel.

Creamed corn, wheat & faint vanilla flavors.

Hardly a porter at all, this tastes like a cream ale. Permanent pass.

Medium body as well as carbonation which dissipated quickly. Aroma is malr,coffee,and vanilla. Taste is coffee and malt followed by vanilla as it warmed up. Overall it was a decent beer but seemed a little weak in all areas
