COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Truly a one-of-a-kind. We balance coffee-like, dark roasted malts with the sweet, seductive flavor of vanilla beans. The result? A deliciously unique flavor.

Bottle. Pours a near clear dark brown with a brown head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has notes of vanilla and dark grains with a bit of sweet chocolate and a hint of roasted malts. Flavor is similar with dark grains and vanilla up front. The vanilla lasts throughout and is joined by some light roasted malts.

Tasty creamy vanilla porter that is smooth in your mouth as it goes down. Definitely recommend it!

US state #25

Nebraska is a state on the Great Plains of the Midwestern United States. Its state capital is Lincoln. Its largest city is Omaha, which is on the Missouri River. The state is crossed by many historic trails, but it was the California Gold Rush that first brought large numbers of non-indigenous settlers to the area. Nebraska became a state in 1867. Population is 1.9 mill (2012). A bit less than half of Norway.

Nice. Mild. This is a very good and under rated beer. Had in Chicago at a pizza place. Nice beer.

Great local porter, not quite as good as Breckenridge VP but still a very good local brew.

triplehopped (50) - - AUG 16, 2013
Pours an intense dark chocolate brown with a medium/full tan head, heavy lacing. Aroma is a roasty, coffee malt. Body is medium/full, soft and foamy with a smooth finish. Taste is light sweet and medium bitter. Overall, a decent porter that although tasty did not deliver on the vanilla as hoped.

dfinney23 (2170) - Houston, Texas, USA - JUL 23, 2013
Tastes more like vanilla pudding than vanilla beans. Still, I’ve got nothing against vanilla pudding. A little too sweet and not enough else going on but a nice finish to an evening.

ajnepple (3117) - Conifer, Colorado, USA - JUN 21, 2013
On tap at the brewery. Black with an off-white head and nice lacing. The aroma is vanilla, roasted malts, light coffee and chocolate. Similar flavor with a light to medium body. Not bad.

Good at cellar temperature; hints of soy sauce on the palette. Smooth and good mouth feel.

onceblind (5220) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 1, 2013
@ South Denver Beer Fest 2013. Clear dark brown with a thin light beige head. Aroma of roasty cocoa and a hint of burnt vanilla. Flavor is sweet and chocolaty with a touch of vanilla and toffee nougat. Overall, tastes a bit like cake. Sweet but not overbearing.
