HQT night. Draft at Brewery. This is a very good vanilla porter. I think the color was appealing, Not overpowering vanilla aroma or after taste, but it was certainly there. Just a hint of chocolate....much less bold tastes than the house Porter...Fencepost. I would drink the fencepost first, but this beer has nothing to be embarrassed about.

everything here is color by numbers, as if from a kit, and this is no exception. The vanilla alone makes this the most enjoyable beer they have, but still nothing special.

one of my favorites from all the vanillas I have tasted. Only down side is they don’t fill Growlers. It is our always go to spot when we visit Bend.

On Tap at the Bend Brew Pub Deep dark brown, no head or lacing. I had this right next to the fence post and I bet the vanilla added killed the head retention. I think the vanilla is a bit over powering. It shoud be an accent and not featured. Very mild chocolate (probably enhanced by the vanilla) and a touch of coffee. Very soft carbonation. Just OK.
