American Porter |  10.00% ABV

Availability: Rotating

Notes/Commercial Description:
A 10 % ABV version of Tanilla. Of course we added more hop bitterness to balance the chocolate, expresso and vanilla malt sweetness. Drink at your own risk. This is a big beer, but drinks way too easy.

Bottle retrieved in Astoria NY.

Frothy head with nice lacing.

Let it warm to just above room temperature. Vanilla / Coffee noise with burnt candy finish.

No alcohol burn even at 10% ABV

Great beer for the colder months ahead.

The beer has a rich smooth mouthfeel. Not viscous, but quite competent for the ABV. There's a lot of chocolate, almost like a chocolate cake. A good amount of espresso bitterness as the beer smooth out with a gentle amount of vanilla. Vanilla mostly shines on the back end. A very drinkable beer as the hops balance the beer on the finish.

A very good imperial porter that is deserving of a good rating.

Looks like a hot mocha.
Tastes of bittersweet chocolate and lots of espresso. The vanilla adds a perfect amount of buttery smoothness and the hop bitterness balances this out to really give the feel that you're drinking an $8 hipster coffee drink at dumb Starbucks at not an $8 bomber from Bevmo.
