Appearance: very dark brown, not quite opaque. Some cola highlights. Modest tan head.
Smell: subtle vanilla, but up front. Not a lot else happening but a nice nose.
Taste: much like the nose. Vanilla is prominent but not overdone.
Overall: very smooth. Easy drinker. Doesn't knock your socks off but well done.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

A: Nearly jet black with a thin light brownish head that fades to a thin, splotchy lacing.

S: Definite vanilla bean up front, touches of nuttiness as well, some chocolate too. Lots of roast and a touch of coffee and very subtle alcohol come through for a well rounded aroma.

T: Vanilla, light coffee and a bit of chocolate dominate, a bit of nuttiness and roast flavor come through as well.

M: Smooth and creamy but a bit light bodied for calling it an imperial porter. Still enjoyable.

O: A nice and tasty porter that may benefit with a bit more body, but overall is very good. Grab some if you can get it!

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!
