We use over two pounds of real vanilla beans in each seven barrel batch to infuse this brown porter with amazing complexity and a smooth rich flavor. There is nothing subtle about this beer.

22oz. bomber from Tipsy’s in Littleton, CO. Pours dark brown with a moderate head, even at high altitude. Aroma is intoxicating, a mix of familiar smells including hot chocolate (marshmallows and allow) and vanilla cola. Once it hits the lips, the real vanilla beans take center stage before fading into milk chocolate and finishing with a light charred malt bitterness. This was my first Dry Dock brew and I’ll surely be back for more!

12oz can - it pours an intense brown, almost black with a thin light brown head. Wonderful aroma is vanilla dominated with notes of coco puffs, coffee and cream soda. Almost seems like a thin body and a sweet aftertaste. Artificial flavors overwhelm the porter base. However I do taste vanilla beans, chocolate, mild roastiness and a hint of coffee.

Bottle in cellar for awhile. Poured into Pig snifter. Deep brown, nearly black pour with ample tan head. Good carb. Aroma is light malty roast, mild chocolate and cocoa, vanilla beans, and cookie dough. Taste is mild dark chocolates, vanilla beans, roasted malts, and cake batter. Medium light body, roasted finish. Good.
