Late in the party, I was feeling like Halloween all over again so I needed to pace myself a little. I figured a nice, big porter would slow me down a little. That, and it was next in line in the fridge (which was actually the garage…)
It did the trick. It poured out black and smelled like vanilla extract. It tasted so smooth, not a hint of burnt malts or smoke or the weight of a traditional porter. It, also, tasted like a cold French Vanilla Cappuccino from Timmies. It was great.
That’s two in a row from these guys that are winners. Two more to go.
So I want to be honest and say that this beer had an uphill battle from the start. Fair or not, I will always have Mill St. Vanilla Porter on my mind when I try a new vanilla Porter…and so far nothing has me close, unfortunately this beer included. It was smooth and creamy and had great vanilla flavour, but it’s still not Mill Street. Made me a little sad.
