Pours a nice dark brown with a half inch light brown head. Not much vanilla smell at first. After the beer warms up a little I could smell the vanilla. Not much vanilla taste at all. A very dry tasting beer with a dry finish. There is a slight sweet smell and taste. Was a bit disappointed in this one.

Appearance: this one looks a bit too light....It looks more like a brown ale than a porter, or like a amber ale even! I don't get too hung up on appearance or styles, but it bothers me a bit. just a bit. 3.5

Smell: The smell is very faint, but pleasant. A almost sweet cream like smell is present, tho to pick it up I had to inhale a LOT. I suppose its a bit too weak for my tastes. 3.25

Taste: This is where the beer really arrives. This brew has the flavor of sweet vanilla cream, with a dry grainy malty sweetness. Almost like a mix of vanilla soda and very lightly roasted coffee. I think its fantastic. 4.25

Mouthfeel: This beer has a bit of sweetness to it, but also had enough carbonation to balance it out. It also has a grainy like feel that oddly enough I think works. 4

Overall: I've tried a lot of vanilla beers before. Some are good, but most are bad. This beer falls closer to the second category. It has al its eggs in the vanilla basket and that should not be a problem. If you picked up this beer, you do want vanilla, and it delivers it in spades. I would had preferred a deeper roast, a darker color, and a more porter-stout flavor, but for what I got I found it to be very nice. 3.75
