This is a picture of the Noche Dulce vanilla porter I had at the opening of Borderlands Brewery
last Saturday. Something like five million people showed up for the event and there was a line out the door for most of the night. I ended up crouching in a corner as the tasting room filled more and more, but thankfully I had a kimchi quesadilla and fried-rice burrito from MaFooCo
, who provided food for the event, so everything was cool.
The good news is that the vanilla porter is both unique and delicious. Slightly fizzy, almost chocolatey, with just a hint of cream soda or something like that. They're going to start selling growlers of it this Wednesday when the place kicks of its regular tasting house. That is all.
