Our luscious and silky smooth OP Porter infused with whole vanilla beans. A complex blend of dark malts and real milk sugar creates the bold flavors of dark roast coffee mingling with farm fresh cream. For the stout and porter lover in each of us, OP is a knockout.

radagast83 (7844) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - JAN 28, 2015
Draft at the brewery. Poured a dark brown color with a small off-white head, much like the base beer. Aroma was some roasted malts, with some chocolate. Flavor was roasted malts, chocolate, lots of vanilla. Nice vanilla bean, roasted malts, chocolate.

Draft. Nose is mostly chocolate. Taste is similar. Mostly chocolate. Not a ton of vanilla. Ok. Just a tad thin.

hopscotch (10983) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - NOV 11, 2014
Draft... This beer rocks!… Pours black with a small, creamy, mushroom-colored head. Decent retention. The nose presents a huge vanilla component with accompanying traces of cinnamon and chocolate crème. Vanilla bomb! Full-bodied and creamy with busy carbonation. The flavor is sweet - but not crazy sweet - with loads of vanilla and roastiness - mostly vanilla. Just enough charcoal bitterness kicks in to just about balance everything out in the finish. Vanilla Bliss! Vanilla! Vanilla! Vanilla! Ole!

50belair (3576) - Florida, USA - JUN 27, 2014
On tap at Dixie. Dark brown pour with a kaki head. Big vanilla bouquet. Robust dark roasted malts dominate with tasty vanilla back beats. Bitter chocolate low lights. Good body and mouthfeel. Not overly complex but solid.

SlovakSniper (5467) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - APR 22, 2014
Ce porter (l’original apparaît comme un sweet stout dans la base de données) est bien noir et génère un col mousseux qui laisse quelques traces derrière son passage. Son nez est bien intéressant. Jamais sucrée ni artificielle, la vanille s’intègre bien aux malts noirs et aux arômes torréfiés. Les saveurs de vanille sont très bien dosées. Il y a une belle touche de lactose qui apporte une profondeur intéressante. C’est bon et mes papilles cherchent à répéter l’expérience. Le corps est de bonne densité. Jamais lourd, il intègre bien son pétillement. La texture m’apparaît soyeuse. La finale est complexe sur des notes torréfiées et sur des notes de vanille grillée. Facile à boire. Une bière faite pour rendre les palais heureux.

kathouse (1808) - LAS VEGAS, Nevada, USA - APR 16, 2014
Starts off like the original OP with a dark brown color topped with a tan head. Coffee and roasted aromas are complimented by a delicious vanilla that smooths out roasted malts. Milk sugars add body. Full and satisfying. This is a top porter. Buddha needs a belly rub.
