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.

Think is a beer i would suggest to drink ice cold. it really hits the spot then. it i really smooth and finishes nicely. i had it just out of the fridge and it seemed really bitter out of there

SynergyXJ (510) - Blacksburg, Virginia, USA - AUG 7, 2007
Bottle Dark maroon pour with a little white head with low retention. Aroma of vanilla and some malt. Flavor has a bit of roasted malt porter flavor, but dominated by the vanilla. Strong vanilla and roasted aftertaste. Better than I was expecting.

hopslovin (194) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - AUG 7, 2007
Almost black with deep ruby edges. Off-white head quickly vanishes. Roast and vanilla on the nose. Big vanilla flavor that fills the palate. Full flavor and nice mouthfeel, but this beer is a bit thin in complexity. Not a powerhouse in this category, but this beer could be enjoyed year round.

swk (5) - Athens, Ohio, USA - AUG 7, 2007 does not count
Disappointing---good color, aroma is mostly coffee and roasted malt. Flavor is a combination of roasted malt/coffee and licorice, with no perceptable vanilla. Tastes almost burnt.

Bottle. A deep ruby red makes this beer look almost black. A thin tan head tops it off. Aroma is delicious - a milky, vanilla, toffee, frappucinno combo that would be just right if it just had more presence. Flavor is decent - Im not getting the vanilla here more of just a roasted coffee malt bitterness that coats the tongue. Thats about it and doesnt leave much of an impression.

12 oz. bottle. Pours dark brown with a medium sized beige head that hangs on for a bit. The aroma is coffee, roasted malt, light chocolate, and vanilla. The flavor comes off a bit sweeter than the aroma let on. The vanilla and roasted malt take center stage with the coffee and chocolate moving more toward the finish. Medium/medium-full mouthfeel and easy to drink. I am surprised this isn’t rated higher.

Bottle from Whole Foods. Pours a dark brown with slight light brown head head. Smells of vanilla and slight sweet malt. Tastes like a nice vanilla coffee with a slight hint of chocolate. Very, very slight hop flavor. Has a good toasted malt/coffe flavor with good vanilla aroma. Nice job.

SturmWulf (65) - USA - JUL 27, 2007
Light aroma of roasted malt, chocolate and molasses. Poured a dark brown with small, light tan head that quickly receded into a thin foamy cap. Nice light lacing. A very nice sweet flavor of roasted malt, sweet chocolate, molasses, light vanilla. A very nice bitter sweet medium finish. Very pleasant. Light body, thin, slighly oily texture, with a soft to medium carbonation. A very pleasant Porter, although a touch more vanilla would’ve been nice. I really enjoyed and will definitely buy again. Served in a Stein.

dark brown color with a thin body. aroma is sweet malts and metal. flavor is surprisingly mellow. i thought it was going to be a syrupy mess but, it turns out, it is quite mild. light coffee flavor with a hint of vanilla...almost an iced coffee. nice easy drinker...
