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.

History & Style
Beau’s Pro-Am Series is a salute to homebrewers, true innovators of our craft. Beers designed by amateur brewers, brewed at Beau’s. Cheers to Members of Barleyment’s Patrick Boisvenue for brewing this wonderful winter warmer with us!

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.

Food Pairings
Mascarpone filled gnocchi with truffle oil, caramel and nutty treats, trifle

tom10101 (3373) - Quebec, CANADA - MAR 4, 2015
Bottle (600 ml). Split 3-ways with the lady and the brother in law.

Appearance: Dark brown with a medium diminishing beige head and little lacing.

Aroma: A burst of vanilla followed by butterscotch, light coffee notes, hints of tobacco and light chocolate. Maybe a bit artificial?

Taste: Similar to the aroma. Vanilla is dominant, but not overpowering. The butterscotch is quite present too along tobacco, coffee/roasted malt and light fruitiness.

Palate: Medium body. Moderate to medium carbonation. A bit oily mouthfeel. Sticky vanilla finish along a butterscotch aftertaste.

Overall: Good Porter! Very tasty. A bit too flavorful (and borderline artificial) to be easily drinkable, but it’s enjoyable nonetheless. Balance is decent.

BiereLuc (999) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 30, 2015
Voilà un porter franc et pétillant. Cendré, chocolaté, légèrement acide et vanillé à la perfection. C’est exactement ce que j’ai envie de boire lorsqu’on me parle d’un porter à la vanille. Léger et goûteux.
