Beer Description:
There’s nothing simple or run of the mill about this “little pod” harvested from the finicky vines of vanilla orchids found on Indian Ocean islands. The thousands of richly aromatic seeds buried inside each of these plump vanilla fruit pods became our beer-making muse for this porter recipe distinguished by chocolate malt and Madagascar vanilla bean. This latter luxe ingredient imparts a delicate creaminess and palate-seducing softness. Additionally, its presence heightens the roundness of the chocolate undertones and hints of coffee typically associated with beers of this style. Dripping in the world’s second-most expensive spice, this porter is extremely drinkable, with just the right amount of vanilla bean richness and deepness.
