Brewaucracy Bean Counter


Brewaucracy
Brewed at Shunters Yard Brewery
Matangi, New Zealand
Style: Porter | Ratings: 1 | Alcohol: 4.5%
Bean counter is a perfectly balanced and traditional English Porter, "completely ruined" by the addition of Tahitian vanilla!
While our traditionalist friends cringe, we celebrate the way the vanilla gently binds the chocolate and espresso notes present in the base beer and adds a warm creamy note. Think a coffee laced creme brulee, and you wonít be far off. The vanilla is subtle though, we didnít want to offend those traditionalist mates of ours too much after all! Itís there to bring out the underlying flavours of the beer, and complement them with subtlety.
Itís not supposed to be a vanilla bomb. Weíre sure youíll get it once you try it!
