By Ammer Naber on September 26, 2012

Knee Deep Imperial Tanilla Porter BottleWe are excited to offer Imperial Tanilla Porter by Knee Deep Brewing Company in a 22 ounce bomber. This is a BIG beer with a very well masked 10% ABV. Is is a great value at $9 for 22 ounces of chocolate, expresso and vanilla malt porter-ness.

I just has one the other night and it was really delicious. Here are some tasting notes:

Style: American Porter
ABV: 10%
IBU: 48
Rate Beer Rating: 96

Appearance
Pours a deep coffee brown, near black, with a finger of dense mocha colored foam. Head showed great retention with nice lacing.

Smell
Huge notes of vanilla extract, chocolate, and coffee with light hints of molasses.

Taste
Starts off with a mix of roasted chocolate malts with some caramel malts, vanilla, and a hint of dark fruit. Through the middle, some roasted coffee come through with some earthy hops, a touch of bitterness, and some more vanilla. The finish is a mix of roasted chocolate and coffee with vanilla, a touch of dark fruit, and a hint of booze.

Mouth Feel
Medium-full bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth and a touch thick with a sweet, roasty, and warming finish.

Overall
Good vanilla, coffee, and chocolate flavors and they mix well together. Not super complicated, but a very solid porter.
