Nanaimo Bar Imperial Porter

British Columbia, Canada
82% ABV • IBU 32 • SRM 32

This dessert-style Imperial Porter combines the many layers of the classic Nanaimo bar. Starting with chocolate on top, vanilla in the middle, and finally a base note of coconut with a decadent sweetness throughout. A venerable bake sale treat in a can. The beer pours black and opaque with a dense tan head with moderate retention. It has a strong chocolate and malt sugar flavour upfront, that is quickly followed by moderate vanilla and coconut. Nanaimo Bar Imperial Porter has a moderately-low bitterness that aligns with moderate roast malt and provides a roast malt balance. Flavours of med-low vanilla and bittersweet chocolate linger. Other ingredients include maltodextrin, graham crumbs, cacao nibs, coconut, and vanilla.
