Ontario Craft Beer, As Advertised – Beer 2

Vanilla Porter


On the other end of the porter spectrum from Les Trois Mousquetaries Porter Baltique we have Vanilla Porter Draught from Mill Street Brewery (5%). This porter pours a deep black brown with just a little skim of mocha coloured head. Lots of vanilla bean on the nose and a bit of cold coffee. A light bodied and airy beer very consistent with other draught cans (think Guinness) but veering close to the watery side of things. As I alluded, the vanilla presence is quite unmistakable in this one though personally I did not find it be an artificial extract-y taste. Flavour wise (aside from the vanilla) you get cold coffee and roasted malts, and this porter finishes dry and slightly sweet.

Overall not a bad porter if you are looking for something light and easy though it may be a tad sweet for some of you beer geeks out there …#beercandy.
