COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Burnt Rock is a classic British-style porter brewed with additions of organic vanilla beans and extract. Despite what the weighty aroma suggests, Burnt Rock has a good, clean finish, and sessionable drinkability.

History & Style
Beau’s Pro-Am Series is a salute to homebrewers, true innovators of our craft. Beers designed by amateur brewers, brewed at Beau’s. Cheers to Members of Barleyment’s Patrick Boisvenue for brewing this wonderful winter warmer with us!

Tasting Notes
With rich, luxuriant vanilla aromas reminiscent of fine tobacco, selected dark malts offer up balancing chocolate and coffee nuances for this medium-bodied beer. Hops add a pleasantly dry finish.

Food Pairings
Mascarpone filled gnocchi with truffle oil, caramel and nutty treats, trifle

Poured into a pint glass, a stark, opaque black colour with a thin head. Immediately, notes of cacao and coffee are apparent, as well as vanilla. The balance is very good and the burnt malt flavours are very subtle, bringing out the aforementioned flavours, making this a very distinct and easy drinking porter.

HopsandBolts (258) - Ontario, CANADA - JAN 2, 2015
600 ml bottle in the 2014 Best of Beau’s gift pack from the LCBO.

Appearance: Pours an opaque dark mahogany brown with a couple fingers of tan head. Retention is short and lacing is slight.

Aroma: Chocolate, coffee, bit of charcoal and sweet pipe tobacco.

Flavours: Vanilla, chocolate, espresso, toffee.

Mouthfeel: Smooth and velvety with moderate viscosity and light carbonation.

Overall: This is a beautiful Porter with lots of vanilla flavour and it has a bit thicker mouthfeel than many other Porters I’ve had. This is one of the better beers that Beau’s brews in my opinion and I give it top marks for upfront aromas and lots of flavour.

Aroma of vanilla, a bit if red fruit and dark malts. Taste is much the same. A bit of pleasant acridness from the dark malt. Balanced and easy drinking. Well done.
