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.

Bottle - Light roast and vanilla. Jet brown and a light brown head. Tons of vanilla and roast with some chocolate notes. A little overboard on the vanilla.

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

JoeMcPhee (9325) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 26, 2013
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.

solidfunk (7696) - 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.

blankboy (7268) - 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.

HogTownHarry (6376) - 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.
