Burnt Rock is a classic Bristish-style porter, brewed with an addition of organic vanilla beans. Despite what the weighty aroma suggests, Burnt Rock has a good, clean finish, and sessionable drinkability.
Burnt Rock was brewed first in 2012, as part of our Pro-Am Series of beers designed by amateur brewers and brewed at Beau’s – cheers to its creator, Patrick Boisvenue! The 2013 edition of Burnt Rock Vanilla Porter won Gold at Montreal’s Mondial de la Bière.
With rich, luxuriant vanilla aromas reminiscent of fine pipe tobacco, selected dark malts offer up balancing chocolate and coffee nuances for this medium-bodied beer. Hops add a pleasantly dry finish. 600 ml, 5.6% alc./vol.
