COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A traditional English Porter with a twist. Vanilla Beans were added to the beer after fermentation was completed. They give a subtle, but not overpowering vanilla aroma and flavor to the beer. Caramel and Chocolate malts lend flavors that go great with the Vanilla addition. This beer is lightly hopped with English hops. This beer is a great desert beer.

Cask at the Black Friday Cask Festival, Triangle Brewing, Durham. Listed as Tiny Tim’s Xmas Porter. This one was a winner with some but not quite so much with me. Nice pour and silky mouthfeel to be sure, and there was an appealing choc and coffee personality to the beer at its core. But vanilla additions (reportedly French Vanilla coffee for this event) were a bit much, both too artificial and too heavy-handed for me to enjoy this one.

A delicious porter. Pours almost black with a thin creamy head. The aroma is vanilla and roast malt. The flavor has the vanilla and malt and a bit of chocolate. It is a sweet beer and very smooth and silky.
