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.

Rated 8/26/07. 12 oz. bottle courtesy of ’Naka. Pours dark black/brown with no head. Nose of coffe, vanilla, malt, and a hint of alcohol. Good porter taste. Not strong in the coffee department. Nice hops, and then a vanilla finish. Not bad.

maltdog (621) - Colorado, USA - NOV 20, 2007
Bottle. Dark brown; no more than a halo of foam despite aggressive pour. Interesting aroma of smoked almonds. Shockingly non-roasty/porterlike flavor… toasted pecans, hickory smoke, sweet cherry… vanilla character emerges at the end, like freshly sawn green oak. Coppery finish with restrained bitterness. Chewy, buttery texture…”fatty” describes it best. Hazelnut/coffeeish aftertaste and an unusual, back-of-throat wasabi burn. Pretty lame as a porter, but fascinating as an uncategorized specialty beer. Total score would have been at least a full point higher had this been classified as a Scottish ale.

norsedoc (248) - Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 19, 2007
Dark brown beer with average tan head. Subtle vanilla aroma and flavor. Fairly dry. Has more of a bitter coffee flavor than the vanilla I was expecting.

sirpsycho (393) - Murrysville, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 17, 2007
Bottle. Pours a cola like brown with a touch of red. Small tan head that disappeared rather quickly. Aroma is slight vanilla, maybe some malts. Taste was vanilla and malt, balanced, but I wouldn’t want another one. Not bad.

Hammster (187) - Eagan, Minnesota, USA - NOV 16, 2007
Bottle. Poured deep brown in color with only a hint of red. Smaller off white head. Roasted nut aroma. Taste is INTENSE and authentic vanilla. This is like drinking straight vanilla extract watered down in some beer. The finish is more roasted malts and nuts but the vanilla stays strong, long. This beer is as close to cream soda as beer can come.

AOF (306) - Naperville, Illinois, USA - NOV 15, 2007
Part of a six pack porter sampler from Binny’s Naperville. Glad I didn’t buy the six pack. Dark brown color. Completely non existant head. Dont know if i got a bad bottle, but there was almost no carbonation. Small roasted malt and nutty aromas. Minor hints of chocolate and vanilla extract. Light bodied for a porter and just a pretty weak beer all around. I am probably being generous with the 2.3 rating.

jobyone (234) - Charlotte, USA - NOV 14, 2007
Pours reddish brown with small off white head. Aroma has light pine smell along with some distinct sweetness. The flavor is quiet sweet with definate vanilla but little else. The taste quickly disapears and the body is quite light.

RicksSportsBar (9) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 13, 2007 does not count
Bottle, first noticed is the coffey black color with a nice tan hand. I liked it overall. Very sweet, kinda glad I only bought 1. Wouldn’t of been able to drink another consecutively. But the one I had, I enjoyed.

Dark pout. Aroma of roasted malt with some coffee. Coffee, dark fruit and only a faint vanilla taste.

michael-pollack (4960) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 12, 2007
Draught: Aroma of vanilla and dark roasted malts. Poured black with hints of ruby and a very rocky, medium-sized, tan head that diminished by lasted. Good lacing. Lightly sparkling. Medium sweet flavor. Tastes of vanilla, cream, roasting, and a hint of piney hops. Medium body. Average texture. Average carbonation. Vanilla/cream finish. Almost like a cream soda beer.
