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 won’t be far off. The vanilla is subtle though, we didn’t want to offend those traditionalist mates of ours too much after all! It’s there to bring out the underlying flavours of the beer, and complement them with subtlety.
It’s not supposed to be a vanilla bomb. We’re sure you’ll get it once you try it!
