Very Good
Vanilla OP PorterVanilla OP Porter
Notes: Our luscious and silky smooth OP Porter infused with whole vanilla beans. A complex blend of dark malts and real milk sugar creates the bold flavors of dark roast coffee mingling with farm fresh cream. For the stout and porter lover in each of us, OP is a knockout.

I've only had this once on tap, but wow was it surprisingly good. In oneway it breaks the rules for Porters -- vanilla. I was afraid the vanilla would be the dominating flavor, but while it was out front, it played very well with the porter format. The flavor overall was rich and complex and super smooth. Maybe someday I'll visit Funky Buddha in Oakland Park, Florida.

On tap at the brewery. Served in a snifter.

Appearance - Black with a nice khaki head. Good retention. Thick collar and nice lacing.

Smell - Vanilla. Coffee roasted malts. Milk chocolate.

Taste - Less vanilla. More milk chocolate. Dark coffee malts. Lactose sweetness and then a twang.

Mouthfeel - Medium bodied. Medium carbonation. Slick mouthfeel.

Overall - Exactly as the name suggests. The twang from the lactose comes out as it warms and kinda spoils it.
