Vanilla Porter – Mill Street Brewery

From Toronto Ontario’s Mill Street Brewery comes their “Vanilla Porter” a Nitro Porter in a can.  The beer pours a deep brown with a creamy tan head.  The aroma consists of vanilla, chocolate and sweet.  The flavour is of vanilla, chocolate, fruit, toffee and a sweet finish.  The alcohol content comes in at 5% with an IBU of 29.  Being a person that finds vanilla to sweet I was a bit worried about this beer.  Luckily for me with it being a nitro beer the vanilla was a bit subdued and the flavour was quite enjoyable.

Commercial Description:  Mill Street Vanilla Porter has been a cult favourite in our brewpubs every winter for the past four years. brewed with Washington state nugget hops, our house ale yeast culture & pure natural vanilla extract, vanilla porter is nitrogen-charged to pour a Thick, tight head with a creamy texture & body. Our vanilla extract is cold pressed from vanilla orchid bean pods giving it over 250 individual flavour notes (conventional hot extraction yields 50) resulting in a captivating depth of flavour and breadth of character.
