COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cherry Vanilla Porter

This is our little Pie Star out of the group (it’s a thing we made up, just go with it). Our brewer outdid himself. This dark delicious craft beer gets all the attention and rightfully so. A traditional Brown Porter brewed with fresh cherries and Ugandan vanilla beans, the Piehole is oozing with dark chocolate flavors and a sweet tempting aroma. It tastes like yo momma’s pie, only better. So shut up and just put it in your piehole!

Growler fill from 4 Sons on Indian School. Deep dark pour with a thin off white head. Very much as promised with a full vanilla and cherry aroma. Sweet cherry flavor and light roasted malt flavor make this taste creamy like a desert unto itself. It doesn't have much of a thick or lingering mouthfeel though so unlike many fruit beers, especially dark ones, this one is easy to finish more than a glass of. Definitely worth a try. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

32oz growler pours with a clear deep amber mahogany colored body that supports a thin light tan head. The aroma offers up dark roasted malts, some chocolate, nuttiness and then a vanilla bean note at the end of the draw. The taste delivers mild dark roasted malts, bigger chocolate notes, a light nutty sensation and then a smooth vanilla sweetness. To midway and into the finish it picks up a mild hazelnut sort of coconut character wrapped around a thin sweet dark fruitiness. Pretty nice.

Sample at OHSO. Dark amber pour, although it’s hard to tell colour with the lights turned down in here. Tan lace lingers. Smells like milk chocolate and cherries, very appetizing. Flavour is like a black forest cake. I have to stop writing this to finish the beer... omg

Draft. Deep maroon color, medium tan head. Aroma of roasty chocolate covered cherries. Taste is sweet but not too sweet, cocoa, fruit. Nice.

Delicious blend of smooth porter, sweet and tart cherry, and smooth vanilla. They hit each just right. At turns decadent, refreshing and complex.

Nitro pour. Dark chocolate in color and opacity, with a pancake batter head. Aroma is cocoa powder, toasted marshmallow, tart cherry. Flavor is more muted, with the smooth marshmallow offsetting slightly more acidic cherry. Very chuggable beer.

A big hit at our party, but I thought it was too much -- too much cherry, and too much vanilla. If they dialed it back just a little bit . . . .

beerbaaron (1938) - Arizona, USA - MAR 2, 2015
Draft. Clear mahogany. Small tan head. Vanilla leads. Then some chocolate followed by roast. Cherries are truly just a hint. Watery. Flavors and aroma seemed almost washed out. Not bad, but I did not find it as good as many of the previous raters.

Draft at ohso, nothing wrong with it, it should be well rated I just can’t stand strong vanilla beers and this is all vanilla.

A decent beer. Good clean flavors, but the cherry flavoring is apparent, and that really disturbs me. It really is a nice porter at it’s core, but the cherry flavoring knocks it down,
