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.

12oz bottle. Poured a dark brown color with an averaged sized tan head. Aromas of roasted and toasted nuts, chocolate, and lighter vanilla. Tastes of vanilla (more than the aromas), chocolate, lighter roast, and nuts. Body a tad on the thin side.

Hollywoodt (239) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - MAY 25, 2007
Poured a dark brown with minimal white head. Aroma was dark, sweet malt with just a slight hint of the vanilla. In the flavor, the malt was more dark and roasted. The vanilla is used well in this brew. It’s not overwhelming (but close), but it is a nice touch. No ttoo bad at all.

mlist55 (210) - media, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 23, 2007
Nice black pour with a puffy tan head. Aroma is nice and creamy with a subtle vanilla aroma. Some coffee as well. Flavor is loaded with vanilla. Very sweet and creamy flavor with some roasted chocolate malts and a slightly nutty finish. Really sweet finish and aftertaste.

madcow75 (426) - Sun Prairie, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 22, 2007
Bottle. Pours dark brown, with red when held up to the light. Medium light brown head. Mild aroma of vanilla and some toasted malts and chocolate. Upfront taste is vanilla and then the chocolate and slight bitterness follow. Smooth, sticky, astringent.

Wiseblood (700) - Clarksville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 22, 2007
Dark shade of brown with red highlights, but no head. Lots of carbonation-looked almost cola-like. Sweet vanilla and molasses aroma that seemed a little synthetic. Good blend of roasted malts and sharp, acidic, vanilla flavor. Comes across as a bit watery overall though and ends with a sticky, astringent finish.

MadIndian (2342) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 22, 2007
Bottle from Capones. Sampled with Dennis Bell. Mahogany pour with medium thick off white head. Vanilla aroma was definetly present with a mild nose of roast. Smooth taste with hints of vanilla. I don’t know if I can really call this a porter but it was a good brew none the less.

TomDecapolis (4427) - Lawrence, Kansas, USA - MAY 15, 2007
Pours a deep brown with ruby red highlights and a smaller light tan bubby/creamy head tha tleft some lacing. Aroma of vanilla cream soda, some ligth chocolate/roasted malts (very light). Flavor of artificial vanilla. Kind of like vanilla Coke without the Coke. Not really getting much more besides a fake vanilla soda. Sure they probalby used real vanilla bean but it’s just too much and covers up the porter.

An amazing subtle vanilla aroma. The flavor is in-your-face vanilla though and way too much. Couldn’t imagine trying to drink a whole one of these by myself.
