Knee Deep Brewing Co. Imperial Tanilla Porter
Hello beer lovers and welcome to another edition of the NorCal Beer Blog's brew review.
Tonight’s featured beer is Knee Deep Brewing Company Imperial Tanilla Porter.
From the Knee Deep Brewing Company website: “Knee Deep’s 2 year Anniversary brew. The Imperial Tanilla was brewed with twice as many vanilla beans as its brother (Tanilla), which compliments this wonderfully balanced, yet full bodied brew with chocolate, vanilla and espresso flavors.”
Let’s get started!
Appearance: Pours a dark brown, nearly black with a mocha colored head and thick lacing.
Aroma: Roasted chocolate malt, loads of vanilla, caramel malt and roasted coffee.
Taste: Big roasted chocolate malt and vanilla with caramel malt, roasted coffee and toasted nuts at the finish. Very delicious!
Overall: Super tasty and well-constructed, Knee Deep Brewing Company’s Imperial Tanilla Porter is balanced well with the nearly perfect mix of vanilla, chocolate and coffee and has just the right boozy finish to make this one a favorite of mine (already). At 10% ABV this is right in my wheelhouse of beer to drink after dinner with dessert or for dessert.
