COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Knee Deep’s 2 year Anniversary brew. The Imperial Tanilla was brewed with twice as many vanilla beans as its brother (Tanilla), which compliments this wonderfully balanced, yet full bodied brew with chocolate, vanilla and espresso flavors.

Poured from a bomber into a snifter glass dark brown with a thin tan head. Aroma is cocoa coffee. Flavor is ever so slight vanilla-wish it were more. Cocoa. Espresso (sorta) Balance is good. Thin but then it is a porter. Drinkable.

"Pretty much takes all the goodness that is Tanilla and amplifies it without losing any of the nuances (which is a neat trick). A bigger, bolder Tanilla that stands out as a dessert beer, stand-alone or w/beef."

22 oz bottle. Dark brown with a thick and foamy tan cap. Nose is cocoa, vanilla, coffee bean and hay. Silky medium to full body with a soft buzz; sexy. Taste is coffee with cream, vanilla bean, milk chocolate, coconut and faint licorice. Yummy.

skoisirius (1717) - Earth, Washington, USA - AUG 14, 2014
Bottle a few months back. Big black pour, little head. Big vanilla nose mixed with sweet roast, and espresso. Palate is big on the creamy espresso, medium roast, and lots and lots of vanilla, sweet, but the very finish almost balances it out with some bitterness. Yum!

NeoHippie2 (1044) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - AUG 2, 2014
Dark brown/almost black pour with a light brown head. Aromas of espresso, vanilla, and notes of cocoa. Flavor is creamy and roasty malts with nice vanilla undertones. Easy to drink. Respectable brew.

Chuckaduck (653) - Highland Heights, Kentucky, USA - APR 29, 2014
Bottle. 4/29/14. Pours deep brown with a fluffy, bubbly light-brown head. Aroma is creamy, sweet, vanilla, dark malts, earth, hint of grass, chalky, clean. Taste is bittersweet, vanilla (comes through nicely), cereal, leather, earth, dark malt, light hints of dark fruit; finished is long vanilla and a pronounced leathery bitterness. Dense lacing. Very full-bodied and creamy. Medium-low carbonation. Really nice and tasty.
