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.

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 it’s own. This may be my favorite porter of ever.

Bottle [from trade with mista if I’m 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 (114) - 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.

jazz88 (2638) - San Francisco, California, USA - MAY 27, 2015
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.
