ATWATER VANILLA JAVA PORTER

Better updated version (2013) loads creamy French vanilla bean roast and lovely milked coffee sedation into caramel-burnt hop char. Fudgy black chocolate midst contrasts raw molasses bittering and wavered black pepper snip. Latent cappuccino hints abound. 2019 version let mildly creamed cocoa-dried vanilla bean bittering hover alongside cedar-seared Blackstrap molasses hop char, but minor phenol aridity beckons.

STONE SMOKED PORTER WITH VANILLA BEAN

Masterful hybridized smoked porter adds Madagascar vanilla beans to steadfast dark-roasted black chocolate template, creamy caramel-toffee cluster and hickory-smoked black coffee bittering.  Charcoal-coarsened hop char thickens peat-smoked mocha malting, raw molasses pungency and sneaky cola-walnut conflux. Mildewed compost waft seems out of place, but not detrimental. A strong dessert choice in lieu of espresso.
