Unfortunately, this was one of the many January entries whose notes have strangely disappeared. In any case, I thought I should just create a stub for it.

Having liked the Stone Smoked Porter, I probably loved the Stone Smoked Porter with Vanilla Bean.

I loved the subtle chocolate smell. There was also a light maltiness on the nose.

The taste was nice and carbonated, and had a texture which was slightly thicker than a watery beer.

For a moment I felt like I could taste the vanilla bean, but I was not entirely sure.

Regardless, I liked the overall flavor of the beer.

After completing my share of the bottle, I reiterated that I liked the bear and further observed that the final sips tasted slightly sour. 6:19PM PT

*Finally after many attempts to try this beer, and one success at drinking it but subsequently losing the notes on it, I have tried this beer and it is accompanied by some notes.

Warm up your palate with this delicious vanilla-laced creation. Whole Madagascar vanilla beans impart a vanilla quality that melds perfectly with the malty, chocolaty, coffee-like characteristics of our venerable Stone Smoked Porter. Enjoy this exquisite brew on its own or paired with a variety of food.

Limited 22-ounce bottles and draft.
