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.

The label of the Breckenridge Vanilla Porter (bottle) reads, "remarkable" and "partakable." I’d say that’s fair. It might have been a little thin, not quite as much roast as other porters, but that vanilla was so tasty. Of course, the vanilla is a little divisive, but this beer was an unexpected smash hit for me.

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a pint glass. This porter poured a very dark brown color with light mahogany highlights showing through the edges of the glass. A thin, tan head quickly faded away, leaving some light lace. The aroma of the beer included roasted malts and some light vanilla notes. The flavor was full of vanilla, followed by light roasted notes and also some chocolate. The vanilla is very strong, but it doesn’t overpower the other flavors. The mouthfeel was medium-bodied with light carbonation. I really enjoyed this beer. About the only complaint I could find was that the body was a little bit thin. Very sessionable!!

clear brown with a small tan head. aroma is weak with light notes of sweet milk chocolate. body is extremely thin for a porter. vanilla is up front with light sweet chocolate. tastes more like a cream soda. highly carbonated. palate is just all wrong.

Bottle. Pourss dark brown with some rich ruby highlights. Fairly muted nose of roasted malt, some artificial vanilla and Hershey’s mike chocolate. Roasted malt with a hint of toffee nuttyness on the palate. There’s a hint of metallic alcohol astringincy that was a tad offputting. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Very average if unforgettable porter.

Bottle. Dark brown. I like this a lot! Good porter. Definitely notice vanilla flavor, but it’s not overwhelming.

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.
