Quiet Deeds Pale Ale, IPA, Kolsch & Vanilla Porter

Red Island Brewing Company has released their first limited edition, the Quiet Deeds Vanilla Porter, a small batch American Porter at 5.90% ABV.

Quiet Deeds craft beer hails from Port Melbourne in Victoria and the company was established in February 2013 by Patrick Alè and David Milstein. The name reflects the ethos of focusing on the brand and products instead of the individuals while delivering quality brews.

The Vanilla Porter is an addition to the Quiet Deeds family being the Pale Ale, IPA and Kolsch. Quiet Deeds Pale Ale 4.6% ABV has floral notes and hops on the nose with fruit and citrus notes on the palate. Quiet Deeds IPA 5.5% ABV has a dark amber colour with floral hops on the nose and a hint of citrus and mild bitterness on the palate which comes through on the finish. Pale amber in colour, Quiet Deeds Kolsch 4.4% ABV is clean and crisp with a mild flavour and bitterness. These are sessionable beers and make for easy drinking.

Quiet Deeds Vanilla Porter comes in a 500 ml bottle and pours a dark brown colour with a light caramel coloured foam. The aroma is of chocolate, coffee and vanilla with roasted malt. The palate is medium-bodied with chocolate, coffee, vanilla and some caramel notes. Overall, a delicious and balanced dessert-style porter to enjoy with sweets or at the end of the meal.

Keep an eye out for a new limited edition beer next month, a White IPA just in time for summer.
