Sierra Nevada teamed up with New Zealand's Garage Project brewery to create Beer Camp 2017 Garage Project CampOut Porter. This is a beer brewed with a special honey and vanilla and a specialty malt smoked with manuka wood. This was the first beer I checked out from this year's Beer Camp mixed 12 pack, seemed the most interesting! 7.7% alcohol.
Aroma full of roast, a hint of smoke, and just a touch of honey. Nice roasty flavor comes first, caramel, toffee and for sure an interesting marshmallow flavor. Lightly smokey, not harsh, not ashy, not even near any burnt flavors.
Vanilla is nice. Leans bitter with the roast but definitely has a nice sweet streak. I suggest letting this beer warm a bit as marshmallow, caramel, brown sugar, toffee and honey add a terrific set of flavors. Great Tasty Treat!
