BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Perrin Brewery
Michigan, United States
perrinbrewing.com

Style: American Porter

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.00%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
The Vanilla beans used in this beer come from... you guessed it: The Kingdom of Tonga. Tonga has over 170 islands and is located in the South Pacific. Fig, Raisin, chocolate and coffee notes (with a subtle caramel touch) set this beer off while the vanilla beans lead into a delightfully dry finish.

Had on tap at Perrin.

A: Bold and black. Slight creamy head.


S: Slight vanilla and malty.

T: Looks darker than it tastes. Medium vanilla taste with strong fig flavors. Finishes sweet with vanilla aftertaste.

O: A very good vanilla porter. The strong fig flavors surprised me at first but ended up enjoying the combined vanilla and fig tastes.
