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.

This beer has a very nice/ coffee vanilla smell as well as taste that is apparent immediately. Dark appearance with no head to speak. Not as thick as I expected, roasted nut aftertaste Overall, a good beer. I would get this again

Dark pour, small head. Smells mildy of vanilla. Vanilla is strong in the taste, and then the typical roasted malt of a porter. Enjoyable, not great.

oreogobbler (228) - Austin, Texas, USA - JAN 26, 2008
Has the aroma of slightly sour vanilla root beer. Smells very sweet. Dark redish brown and creamy head. Lightly carbonated. Strong vanilla upfront fallowed by light citrus and a milk chocolate finish. Good flavor, but too sweet. Velvet smooth palate. Intensely creamy. I could only drink about half of this before I had to toss it. Way too sweet. Not easily drinkable.

restless7 (104) - Lenexa, Kansas, USA - JAN 24, 2008
BOTTLE: 45 degrees.. dark pour with small beige head. Definite vanilla aroma with chocolate and a hint of smoke. Interesting flavor with medium body, vanilla bean resting on the back of the tongue. Medium finish.

wilkie (1208) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - JAN 21, 2008
Bottle at Sadlack’s in Raleigh, NC. Pours dark, black, red around edges with a medium tan head. Aroma is VANILLA with some chocolate, and other roasted smells. Too much vanilla in flavor. Ruins everything in my opinion. Can taste roastiness, chocolate as well.

wickedpete (634) - Lexington Park, Maryland, USA - JAN 20, 2008
Black with a creamy tan head. Aroma of cola slightly, chocolate, and vanilla. Flavor is quite the same, plenty of chocolate flavor along with a well balanced vanilla character that isn’t overpowering. Slight roast flavor in the end. This is a great change of pace and oh so satisfying.

Hazmatt (363) - Virginia, USA - JAN 17, 2008
Bottle. Dark porter color, small head. Aroma is malty, vanilla, touch of anise. Flavor is nice, roasted malt, sweet with vanilla and no hop flavor at all, hint of coffee and toffee, slight bite in middle. Sweet finish. Good specialty or dessert beer.

carboloader (674) - Houston, Texas, USA - JAN 16, 2008
Pours opaque with caramel colored head. Some vanilla flavor, roast, and sweetness comes through -- smooth and easy to drink but also somewhat plain and astringent. Reminds me of Youngs double chocolate stout for whatever reason. A decent shelf buy, but not a top shelf brew.

Get a little roasted and chocolate malt. Get a lot of vanilla. Looks like it should have a much bigger body but comes through a little thin and quick. Getting a bit of an offputting burned flavor. I guess I would call it astringent. Not a very enjoyable experience here.
