Burnt Rock is a classic British-style porter brewed with additions of organic vanilla beans and extract. Despite what the weighty aroma suggests, Burnt Rock has a good, clean finish, and sessionable drinkability.

Tasting Notes
With rich, luxuriant vanilla aromas reminiscent of fine tobacco, selected dark malts offer up balancing chocolate and coffee nuances for this medium-bodied beer. Hops add a pleasantly dry finish.

Tap at C’est What. Deep black pour. Tight tan head. The aroma is softly sweet with faint vanilla and a little bit of lean roasted barley. A touch of sweetness but it’s actually in the dry side. The vanilla is there but it’s pretty subtle. Moderate earthy bitterness as well. A pretty simple porter (more stout than porter really) but pleasant enough.

2013-02-10. Black body nice tan head fades. 3++ Good amount of vanilla in the nose, sweet dark malt. 7+ Flavour is similar, sweet dark malt. The vanilla seems a bit too strong at first, but malt catches up to balance it a bit as the glass goes on. Still pretty vanilla prominent. 7+ Smooth medium body. 3+ Nice, but being in the mood for vanilla will help a lot! Bottle at Rhino Winter Festival, Toronto

HogTownHarry (6104) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - JAN 15, 2013
On draught at Bar Hop. Lovely deep but not murky ruby-brown with a large creamy fairly long-lasting creamy tan head. Smells of vanilla and roast - a little sweet, definitely some herbal bitterness - taste follows, less sweet. Creamy, airy mouthfeel, quick finishing, a little dry in the linger.

blankboy (6052) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 14, 2013
Bottle at Rhino Winter Beer Festival, Feb. 10. Pours a very dark brown with amber hues and an average size frothy beige head. Nice aroma of chocolate and vanilla along with some malt -- simple but lovely. Flavour is also chocolate and vanilla backed by roasted malt. Dry finish. Medium bodied. This could get a bit cloying after a while but at a decent sample size, and if you like this sort of thing, it’s excellent.

[5116-20130210] Bottle. Chocolate Tootsie Roll aroma. Slightly hazy, brown black body with a quick foamy off-white head. Toasted chocolate dust and malty Tootsie Roll flavour. Medium-full body. Tasty! (7/3/7/4/15) 3.6

Boutip (4726) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 24, 2013
Bottle: Poured a dark color porter with a medium size light brown foamy head with medium retention and light lacing. Aroma of vanilla is quite important with some dry roasted malt notes. Taste is a good mix between some light dry roasted malt notes with some vanilla notes that are quite intense. Body is a bit light for style with good carbonation. Interesting but nothing extremely special at the end of the day.

solidfunk (4008) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - JAN 16, 2013
Much better than the Mill St. Vanilla porter I just had. Has a decent integrated armoa of vanilla at least. Carbonation is high. Pours dark brown with light lacing. Aroma has nut, vanilla, cacao. High carbonation gets in the way of aftertaste, but it still leaves off bitter. On tap at Bar Hop.

SlovakSniper (3169) - Candiac/Frelighsburg, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 14, 2014
Un porter embouteillé le 19 novembre 2013 qui ne montre aucune tête mousseuse. Un très mince anneau s’installe grâce aux mouvements des gorgées. Un nez qui me rappelle un cola aromatisé à la vanille. Du soda mousse? Heureusement que des malts rôtis existent pour me faire penser que je suis ici devant une bière brune. Un goût qui est à la hauteur de mes attentes. De la vanille et des traces chocolatées sur un fond de céréales rôties. En bouche, je note que le liquide a un corps de faible densité. Son pétillement est vitaminé. Sa texture est franchement aqueuse. Je pense que cette charpente est une nuisance pour l’étalement des saveurs. En arrière-goût, les grains secs laissent traîner des particules de vanille rôtie. Dommage que cette bière s’intègre davantage dans la grande famille des sodas artisanaux.
