Had a chance to try this at the Food & Wine Festival as well, and what a treat. This is now, hands down, my favorite beer I've had to this point (Though the quest will always continue! I hope to find something someday). That fact is why I gave this beer a perfect rating, because to my sensibilities, it is the most perfect beer I've had.

I've spent the last 7 months since trying it doing my best to get something similar, and failed. I've yet to find a good vanilla espresso porter (Or stout for that matter!) that can match this. Where it succeeds and all the others have failed is the Vanilla. Of the 5 or so others I've found in the meantime (give or take) - all of them manage to capture the vanilla's aroma, but never quite manage to get the flavor strong enough to not be overpowered by the espresso. This isn't to say they're bad beers, quite the contrary, at least they tickle the same itch, and I've always loved a good coffee porter anyways, but it is definitely the vanilla that makes this stand out amongst the rest.

It's a shame I live so far away being up in North Dakota, because if I could this would be in my fridge without fail. I would refill my growler the moment I ran out. If I could get cans or bottles, even better.

Enjoyed on-tap at the Food and Wine Festival at Epcot. Vanilla Espresso Porter is exactly what the name suggests with a delicious balance between the strong espresso and vanilla notes. Funky Buddha hit the nail on the head with this beer.

Part of a 4 beer flight at Epcot Food & Wine. Fantastic espresso aroma. Smooth mouthfeel the vanilla coating. Wonderful combination of flavors and a truly great porter.
