Klamath Basin "Vanilla Porter"
Klamath Basin Brewing Company - Klamath Falls, Oregon USA
Porter (ABV 6.7%) (IBU 40)

[Suggested Glassware: Nonic Pint]

Rating: 3.5/5.0

Aroma: 7/10
Appearance: 4/5
Taste: 8/10
Palate: 3/5
Overall: 13/20

The pour was a muddy jet black with an average (1-2 finger) light brown frothy head that reduced to a scattered film and medium collar with good spotty lacing.

The aroma was of burnt malts, light resin hops and a leathery yeast with notes of vanilla, dark chocolate, roasted coffee and a touch of smoke.

The taste was lightly malty sweet with a bit of vanilla at first, and then a bold bitter roastiness settled in along with hints of chocolate, coffee and a touch of smoke towards the end. The flavor lasted an average time after the swallow with a bitter coffee taste left lying on the taste buds.

Mouthfeel was a few steps past medium in body with a dry, oily texture and a soft carbonation.

Overall this was a robustly tasty Porter, with a strong vanilla presence that you could actually taste for a change. It also offered a good balance of flavors with a smooth and easy drinkability...
