Imperial Tanilla is an American Porter brewed by Knee Deep Brewing Co., and for the purposes of this craft beer review, the ale was served in a nonic pint glass from a can.
The Porter pours an opaque black with no light showing through. It’s topped by an inch-thick cap of dense tan-colored foam that shows fine retention. Patches of residue coat the sides of the glass following the reduction.
The aroma wafts the nose with a smoky roast malt. It’s backed by a hint of booze.
A taste of coffee and bready malt leads the palate. The finish is bittered with a mild dose of floral hops, earthy woods, and smoky char. Sweet notes of vanilla and dark chocolate appear on the swallow.
Its feel has a light grain with a medium body and moderate carbonation. Finishes dryly with a slight warming sensation.
Its appearance is solid and the aroma is simple but pleasant. The aroma is simple but pleasant. The palate is robust and flavorful. This brew packs a lot of booze but it’s masked fairly well. Imperial Tanilla is an all-around fine Porter.
