COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Who would have thought deep in the jungles of Papua New Guinea and Madagascar grew the perfect ingredient to build an extraordinary Porter in Colorado? An ale that has all the chocolate and roasted nut flavor of a classic Porter, with an enigmatic surprise thrown in for good measure, real vanilla bean. Breckenridge Brewery’s Vanilla Porter. A vanilla kiss in a rich, dark sea.

(Bottle 35,5 cl) Courtesy of yespr. Clear, dark brown with an orange hue and arough, off-white head. Aroma of roasted malt and vanilla. Medium body, sweetish roasted malts and then these very distinct vanilla accents. The bitterness is very discreet. Vanilla goes well in bourbon flavoured beers, but otherwise I really don’t dig it. 180907

Pours a very dark but clean copper. Has a small light tan head with moderate carbonation. The initial aroma was almost sour but quickly turned to mild malt, cocoa, and faint vanilla. The flavor however is pretty big vanilla. Also malt, chocolates and nutty. Not bad.

fiulijn (15060) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 18, 2007
Dark brown color. Light aroma of chestnuts, caramel and milk chocolate. Bad flavor of cheap chocolate, not as bad as the Floris, but in that direction. Very difficult to drink.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5022) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 17, 2007
UPDATED: NOV 30, 2009 Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a very dark brown color with ruby highlights and a small dark tan head. The aroma was tangy, roasty, malty and had a moderate vanilla element. The flavor was lightly bitter, roasty and had a moderately strong vanilla (somewhat artificial) flavor and a light floral hop presence. Nice. My wife like this one much better than I did though.

Pours inky black with small tan head. Nose is woodsy vanilla and malt. Flavor of vanilla, oak, very nutty and creamy, quite mild. Creamy, very good mouthfeel. I like it a lot.

33 cl bottle, Fargo. Cola like appearance, with a head that lasts a bit longer. Medium malt aroma, Quite sweet, massive vanilla hit, then a sweet/bitter finished mingled with the vanilla. Not really my style but certainly worth a taste.

Strykzone (5038) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - SEP 12, 2007
Its been a while since I have had a porter and can hardly wait for this one. Nice dark body with red highlights and a medium dark tan head. Aroma is sweet and malty with a bit of molasses. Flavor is delicious. Sweet malts with lots of roasted notes. The vanilla is subtle but has a pleasant impact. Chocolate flavor is a dry dark variety. Some dark fruit shows up late. This is such a drinkable beer!

ChainGangGuy (4395) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - SEP 9, 2007
Appearance: Pours a clear, dark, dark reddish body with a wispy, off-white head. Smell: How upsetting. Incredibly weak aroma of sour grains with a tinge of herbaceousness to it. Taste: Light, sour malt taste with a mild milk chocolate flavor. Only the faintest hint of vanilla crops up midway and lasts into the chocolate water finish. Mouthfeel: Medium-thin body. Medium carbonation. Drinkability: Woefully weak and unappealing.

JonR888710 (999) - Cochabamba, BOLIVIA - SEP 8, 2007
Pours black with a not so large khaki head. Vanilla is real? Really? Reaks of synthetic vanilla syrup, or at least my bottle did. Once in my mouth tastes of a watery porter with overly bitter, metallic hops. I did not enjoy this beer at all.

Bottle. Overpoweringly delicious vanilla nose that hit me like French Vanilla coffee with more sweetness. Average darkness for a porter, nice tanish brown head. I’ll admit, after the first few sips, I hated this beer. The vanilla is so unusual it overpowered everything else, but as I worked through the pint it mellowed out and other flavors appeared. Thick molasses, coffee, caramel, and even some reconizable hops. Quite good. It did leave my mouth overly sticky sweet feeling, but that’s no surprise. Very interesting brew and enjoyable if you give it time and a chance.
