Thrilla Vanilla

Thanks go out to Scott for bringing this one back from TN. Cheers Bud.
The beer looks great. Large, off-white head with some serious red highlights and good density of color. Nose gives the vanilla as expected but quite reserved.
Plenty of vanilla in the taste too and perhaps some smoke too. The degree of chocolate malt character is quite pronounced as well. That was surprising.
Mellow, drinkable and a tasty brew. My first from this brewhouse and I am impressed; definitely want to explore this place some more.
Drinks easily a very nice rendition of the style.
Commericial description;
The addition of vanilla beans in the fermentation of our Porter makes this dark but smooth treat that much more dynamic in your mouth. We believe that this aromatic vanilla porter will produce a feeling in you that only the juxtaposition of smooth and mild but commanding and flavorful can create. This rope-a-dope style of taste bud jabbing is what defines this tantalizing cool weather cocktail. This beer may make you actually lighter on your feet and proclaim yourself the greatest of all time.
