On tap at the brewery. This batch was made with Verve's Street Level espresso and vanilla beans.

Opaque dark brown body with a surprisingly long-lasting head for a coffee beer. Huge coffee presence on the nose, and extremely high quality coffee at that. It has an earthy, chocolatey character without any harshness. Vanilla pops out more as the beer warms, balancing out the intensity of the coffee a bit. Coffee is dominant on the palate as well. It tastes fresh and vibrant, and works well with the semi-dry, medium-bodied base porter. Vanilla lends a hint of sweetness. Unsweetened cocoa and roasted malt from the base beer come through nicely in the finish. This is a coffee beer done right, very good stuff.
