Tank Ten Untethered – Harry Porter & the Bourbon Soaked Vanilla Bean
We’re back again with the news of another Tank Ten series beer heading to the LCBO! And again we’d like to provide you with a chance to sample some before we ship cases out across Ontario.
On Thursday February 6th, at 7pm, be the first in the province to try our fan favourite, Harry Porter & the Bourbon Soaked Vanilla Bean at the Loose Moose (146 Front St W, Toronto, ON), alongside a number of other GLB porters.
We’ll have two versions of the beer available to try (keg vs. cask) and they’ll be joined by the following porters:
Harry Porter & the Fairgrounds Coffee Bean (keg)
Harry Porter & …. [we're keeping this one a secret for now] (keg)
Harry Porter (cans)
Bourbon Barrel Porter with Vanilla Beans – (keg)
Harry Porter & the Bourbon Soaked Vanilla Bean will retail for $5.95 and approximately 10,000 bottles will be available for distribution within the LCBO. Cases will start shipping out mid February to stores across the province.
For more information, please contact Troy Burtch at email@example.com or 647.400.7051
THE TANK TEN STORY:
Stemming from our Project X line, Tank Ten is a tickle trunk of tasty treats. This series is payback to our hard working brewers. We’ve reserved fermenting tank number ten for them and have given them the green light to brew whatever the heck they want.
“One of the truest tests of integrity is its blunt refusal to be compromised.”
Pouring this beer is half the fun. Dark black in colour, which provides a lovely creamy mocha head, it’s very attractive porter that is full of wonderful aromatics of fresh vanilla bean, dark cocoa, coffee and a touch of hazelnut. The medium body porter raises eyebrows with every sip as flavours of vanilla, traces of bourbon, roasted coffee bean, and dark chocolate all mingle together nicely in the glass. Velvety smooth with a dry finish, the Harry Porter & the Bourbon Soaked Vanilla Bean is a definite crowd pleaser and pairs wonderfully with rich desserts.
It’s been said that a great sorcerer with a single magical vanilla bean can infuse the intense depth of flavour and aroma that is found in this ale.
Unfortunately, we are hideously short of such wizards at Great Lakes so instead we simply used 1001 vanilla beans.
