Knee Deepís 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.

Benzai (11071) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - AUG 20, 2015
Bottle [from trade with mista if Iím not mistaken] @ weekly tasting shared with Dutchdrebus and Ansjelaah. Opaque dark brown to black color with a dark red glare coming through when held into the light, medium sized light brown head that lasts for a decent while. Aroma is malts, dark malts and vanilla. Taste malts, dark malts, liquorice, firm vanilla, soft sweetness, light bitterness, coffee amd espresso lightly, some chocolate, slightly some hops come through as well. Medium to full body, suitable soft yet sort of medium carbonation. Very nice.

Cam_Dynamite (106) - AUSTRALIA - JUL 8, 2015
Pours nice enough, love the rich vanilla espresso on the nose. Taste is very vanilla dominated with coffee beans and a slightly leathery chocolate taste. I like vanilla beers and this is a well balanced quality beer, nothing out of the ordinary just solid.

Bottle. A dark brown color with a tan head. An intense aroma of toasted malts with a touch of vanilla. The vanilla comes through more clearly with each sip. This is a very robust, flavorful and rich beer.

dpgjrnhcraftbrew (72) - New Hampshire, USA - APR 22, 2015
A chocolate fudge sweetness dominates the aroma with slight tan head and spots of lacing. Chocolate covered coffee flavored marshmallows is my best way of explaining the taste. Carbonated with a creamy, smooth finish. Outstanding Imperial Porter that I will have try again!

Bacterial (2368) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - APR 3, 2015
Pour from a bomber. Dark brown. Thin tan head. Nose is burnt chocolate, roasted malt and vanilla. Mouthfeel is on the thin side, but refreshing and drinkable. Mild booze on the finish.

Koskela (409) - Marysville, California, USA - MAR 12, 2015
There's a sweet choc and vanilla aroma from this dark brown beer with an offwhite head. The sweetness from the choc mixes well with the vanilla leaving more of a vanilla bean flavor towards the end of the taste. The beer finishes out with a slight alcohol burn with coffee beans. This brew is a full bodied brew with low carb. Not a bad beer at all. Worth a try.
