Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

An imperial porter brewed like horchata, made with milk sugar, cinnamon and Madagascar vanilla bean. Bottle 02077.

Watery yet dark, a burnt black-brown. Opaque with a half-finger head of light tan.

Roasty-sweet, with a good balance between the two. Crumbled dark chocolate, vanilla, a touch of floral hops. Cinnamon, lactose. Smooth and subtle.

Even smoother and subtler. Milk chocolate, cinnamon sticks, milk. Bitter roast is well-balanced with the lesser flavors.

Creamy medium body, mild massaging alcohol. Just a shade under what I'd like from the style. A touch of alcohol heat, but lower than what I'd expect.

Incredibly easy to drink. Dangerously, even.

Poured into a Teku glass from a 750mL bottle.

It's got a pitch-black body and a dark-khaki with cream-colored head that is frothy and two fingers thick. 4.25

This aroma reminds me of a Yoo-hoo. It's chocolatey, milk-like and has a big dose of vanilla. There's some oak and barrel aroma and maybe even some sweet caramel. 4.5

Continued heavy oak and vanilla, the chocolate is subtler but now there's a cinnamon dose that adds another element to this brew. 4.5

It's creamy, smooth and a little lighter in body than I'd expect, but I like it. A wealth of flavors, some spice and a touch of hop bitterness. 4.25

This beer is effing tasty. Tons of flavor, aroma, and sensations. Outstanding beer. I'll have to buy more. 4.42

Color- black ruby. Head- full light chocolate head.

Aroma- hints of chocolate but alcohol esters apparent.

Taste- starts roasty and sweet like a Starbucks fancy coffee, hints of cinnamon and vanilla confirm the label, finishing with a mild hoppy bitterness which complements coffee and dark chocolate tones. 25 IBUs. A great winter time beer. Why did we open this in the heat of July????

Poured from a corked 750 ml bottle into a Liefmans Goudenband glass (my preferred all purpose beer tasting glass). Tasted July 2014.
