12oz bottle, $2.75 at Barrel and Barley, poured into a Brick Mason snifter. #properglassware and all that jazz.

Continually impressed by the new brewing team at Red Brick. This year's Vanilla Gorilla has the perfect amount of vanilla, and an awesome white chocolate back bone with hints of roasted coffee coming through. Mouthfeel is light and fluffy -- as it should be with a porter. Spot on fellas. Job well done!

Cellared 12 oz bottle with a bottled on date of Oct. 2013,

Pours dark brown but looks black and opaque in the glass. A medim size tan head is quite creamy and has very good retention.

Aroma: very well balanced and pleasant blend of vanilla beans, dark bread, and light alcohol esters with hints of coffee and dark fruits.

Flavor: a generous amount of vanilla with a very natural flavor. Not so much vanilla as to mask the dark roasted grains nor some alcohol esters. Both the alcohol and the vanilla fade in the aftertaste leaving a gentle impression of dark, vanilla iced bread and coffee.

O: very enjoyable and definitely preferred over the smoked version.
