Truly a one-of-a-kind. We balance coffee-like, dark roasted malts with the sweet, seductive flavor of vanilla beans. The result? A deliciously unique flavor.

US state #25

Nebraska is a state on the Great Plains of the Midwestern United States. Its state capital is Lincoln. Its largest city is Omaha, which is on the Missouri River. The state is crossed by many historic trails, but it was the California Gold Rush that first brought large numbers of non-indigenous settlers to the area. Nebraska became a state in 1867. Population is 1.9 mill (2012). A bit less than half of Norway.

Nice. Mild. This is a very good and under rated beer. Had in Chicago at a pizza place. Nice beer.

Great local porter, not quite as good as Breckenridge VP but still a very good local brew.

triplehopped (65) - - AUG 16, 2013
Pours an intense dark chocolate brown with a medium/full tan head, heavy lacing. Aroma is a roasty, coffee malt. Body is medium/full, soft and foamy with a smooth finish. Taste is light sweet and medium bitter. Overall, a decent porter that although tasty did not deliver on the vanilla as hoped.

dfinney23 (2994) - Houston, Texas, USA - JUL 23, 2013
Tastes more like vanilla pudding than vanilla beans. Still, Ive got nothing against vanilla pudding. A little too sweet and not enough else going on but a nice finish to an evening.

On tap at the brewery. Black with an off-white head and nice lacing. The aroma is vanilla, roasted malts, light coffee and chocolate. Similar flavor with a light to medium body. Not bad.

Good at cellar temperature; hints of soy sauce on the palette. Smooth and good mouth feel.

onceblind (8177) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 1, 2013
@ South Denver Beer Fest 2013. Clear dark brown with a thin light beige head. Aroma of roasty cocoa and a hint of burnt vanilla. Flavor is sweet and chocolaty with a touch of vanilla and toffee nougat. Overall, tastes a bit like cake. Sweet but not overbearing.

DavoleBomb (1867) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 19, 2013
Poured into a perfect pint. 3.0 A: Clear deep amber brown color. One and a half fingers of frothy beige head. Retention is below average, but a small ring of lacing is left. 4.0 S: Vanilla is easily noticeable and blends extremely well with coffee and chocolate notes to give an almost creme brulee vibe. Graininess and a moderate roastiness underneath. Very pleasant. 3.0 T: This is tasty, but it doesnt have the depth of flavor that the nose hinted at. Vanilla is strongest again and there is a decent amount of coffee, but the chocolate is all but gone. This is really dry, which hurts what I think they should have been going for. Lacks sweetness, caramel, and chocolate - all of which complement vanilla quite well. In that sense, this drinks hollow. Light grain and roastiness. 3.0 M: Light to lighter medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Lacking body and creaminess, which is what I love most in creme brulee type dark brews. 3.0 D: Its not bad, but it disappoints once you get past the nose. Easy to drink though. Serving type: bottle 10-16-2012 01:46:44

12oz Bottle A - Pours dark brown almost black. Small tan head. Good lacing. S - Cocoa and faint vanilla. T - Bitter chocolate, faint vanilla, bittering hops. M - Light/medium bodied. Mild carbonation. Slick texture. Bitter finish. O - Ok Porter, but a bit bitter. Would have liked more vanilla flavor.
