Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: denver10 on 01-23-2013

This beer pours a deep dark brown with a snow-white head. Aroma notes of Vanilla, Cinnamon and sweet milk hit the nose bringing up images of the delicious Mexican drink this beer is styled after. The beer hits the palate with Vanilla, sweet chocolate malts, and a hint of cinnamon; all with a medium body and a balancing hop bitterness. Enjoy this beer next to a roaring fire with your amigos in a cozy cabin after a long day of skiing the deep powder of the Rocky Mountains.

This beer fits better into the Herb/Spiced Beer Category, as it is spiced with a ton of Cinnamon and Vanilla and also uses milk sugar. It recently took home a medal in this category and we believe it is a more accurate description then an Imperial porter.

Thanks and Cheers.

The Elevation Team.

This was an excellent beer. Not your typical vanilla porter - the cinnamon really adds a great flavor to it. Obviously it pairs well with Mexican food, but it's really good just on its own as well. Seek this one out if you want a little something different. I'll look for this one again for sure.

Pours black with a thin brown head. Smells of dark malts, chocolate and vanilla. Tastes of dark chocolate, dark malt, some spice, vanilla, a little astringence. Medium body light carbonation with chocolate malt aftertaste.

Slight vanilla in the aroma and taste. Didn't get much cinnamon at all. Very solid but wished it was a little more spiced for the style

Poured into a Fremont small snifter. Pours a very dark mahogany brown, passing light only at the edges of the glass and a thin, light brown head that dissipates to patches with slight, slippery lacing. Aroma of mild toasted malt, vanilla, Mexican chocolate and cinnamon. Flavor is milk and Mexican chocolate, toasted malt with light char, light vanilla and cinnamon, well integrated, like a milk shake. Medium bodied with light creaminess and maybe a hair less carbonation than expected. A very nice dessert porter, like drinking a chocolate shake made with Mexican chocolate for light sweetness, cinnamon and vanilla. Balanced and very tasty. I enjoyed this a great deal.
