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.

Bottle. Dark cola color with a thick off white head. Aroma is caramel, roasted malt and piney hops. Taste follows suit and adds a touch of citrus from the hops and a hint of vanilla in the finish. Great balance. Rich with relatively strong carb. Excellent and much better than the non-imperial version.

22 ounce bottle, bottled on date of 02/05/14. Served in a snifter, the beer pours dark brown/black with an inch tan head. Head retention and lacing are both good. Aroma is very nice, the brew smells like vanilla, roasted malt, chocolate, and some coffee. Not surprisingly, the taste is similar to the aroma. It tastes like roasted and burnt/charred malt, bittersweet chocolate, vanilla, coffee, and some molasses. Nice mix of both bitter and sweet flavors. Mouthfeel/body is medium/full, it’s creamy and has a moderate amount of carbonation. 10% ABV is well hidden. I think this is a good brew, I wouldn’t mind picking up another bottle. $6.99 a bomber.

An incredible beer. One of our favorites. Pours a beautiful deep black with a thick tan head. Smells awesome, mostly vanilla, but some caramel, cinnamon and nutmeg in the smell. Taste is creamy, starts off with vanilla and cinnamon, then some macadamia nuts and toasted coconut in the finish. Great for a cold night. Some of the most natural tasting vanilla we’ve had in a beer. Had in the bottle. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

krumbum (752) - truckee, California, USA - JUL 10, 2013
deep dark rich mahogany color. Slightly penetrated by light. Brown head. Chocolate scents with light cherry in the back. Tastes like a chocolate cherry pie that pleasantly fades. This was the imperial cherry tanilla.

22oz bomber pours with a deep clear amber body supporting a tan head of foam. The aroma offers up toasty toffee and caramel as well as some dark roasted malts and more toffee into the end of the draw. The taste is similar with dark roasted maltiness, toasty almost burnt toffee and then a thick layer of yum. I get an additional note of caramel like sweetness joining in into the finish. Pretty nice.

daknole (10350) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - APR 28, 2013
Super dark brown pour, light brown head. Vanilla up front and vanilla in the finish. In between I get lots of roast, chocolate and some coffee. Way better than the regular version.
