BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Perrin Brewery
Michigan, United States | website

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.

Enjoyed on draught at the Perrin tap room on 22 Mar 2014.

A: Body nearly black, passes no light. Head was a creamy off-white layer on the beer, good retention, some lacing.

S: Roasty malts, vanilla.

T: Follows the nose. Vanilla and roasted malt intertwine and carry this beer to a slightly sweet finish.

M: Velvety smooth. Medium to heavy body, softly carbonated. The high ABV has a warming effect as the beer is enjoyed.

O: This is a really good vanilla porter. Very enjoyable, and a great example of a fine Michigan craft brewery making the effort to brew a fine example of a higher ABV beer that is easily drinkable.
