Pour a little lighter than I'd like to see my porters; a little too caramel & not enough black. The medium sized head was also a tinge too orange as I'd like to see it a bit more mocha. Head faded rather quickly for a porter. Aroma definitely of vanilla. Taste isn't bad but in fact just a bit too forward with the vanilla, which dominates the sweet bready malts just a bit too much. Mouthfeel is decent & smooth, but carbonation level is a little too low leaving the beer a bit limp. Although the vanilla was just too much at first, it smoothed out a bit & I enjoyed this one in the end. That said, a one-off for me as if I'm looking for a vanilla porter, there's a couple others I prefer over this one.

Really thick creamy head, hint of vanilla and chocolaty flavor which I don't mind. Light bitterness and after taste. I enjoyed it.Mill st brewery keeps impressing me every time

A very nice vanilla porter. Unfortunately, it uses a flavor which is like cheating in my opinion.

L- Dark down
S- Strong vanilla with hints of hops
T- Sweet and smooth
MF- Balanced and not too heavy. Drinkable for a vanilla porter

S: Coco hazelnut with a bit of coffee no real vanilla nose.
T: Very thin tasting porter the vanilla is very weak and a mixed bag of flavors .
F: Light body medium carbonation.
O: A very weak porter that is missing lots it needs work for sure.

On-tap at the new St. John's brewpub. I've enjoyed the coffee Porter many times, but this really didn't tast good. Too sweet and the flavours just didn't meld.

$8 a pint, and I couldn't finish half of it.

If vanilla porter is your thing, this is a sure fire winner. I found it too rich for my palate. After a pint I needed milk (like after eating too much chocolate). But it is a well crafted porter, my personal taste notwithstanding. And I do recommend it to anyone who likes this style of brew. Cheers.
