COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

I wish all beer was made by people who love beer this much. The secret of this beer is that they only add just enough vanilla to compliment what would be a fine porter on itís own. This may be my favorite porter of ever.

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.

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 (2087) - 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 (377) - 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.

This one really has the coffee and espresso making it. Almost smokey but Iíve learned its the espresso making it smokey.

22 oz bottle shared by Tmoney99 from notes. Pours dark brown to black in color with a small beige head. The aroma and flavor have roasted malt, chocolate, quite a bit of vanilla, light coffee. Smells and tastes pretty good, but a touch thin. I like this, but it doesnít compare to their hoppy beers.

22 ounce bottle. Pours almost black with a nice tan head. Aroma of malt, vanilla, and chocolate. Taste is roasted malt, vanilla, chocolate, and some coffee. Very good. Liked the balance.

Sweetness in the aroma, roasty coffee notes. Dark brown with a thick tan head that dissipates pretty fast. Little sweet vanilla like taste with roasty alcohol forward finish. A bit more vanilla please. Very smooth otherwise.
