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.

Bottle: Pours a medium depth brown with a large beige head and lots of thick lacing. Nose is like a mocha, but with vanilla tones. Like the name implies, taste is plentiful with vanilla, some roasted malt and mocha flavors. So much on the sweeter side that its a bit one dimensional. Good intentions, just a bit overboard on the vanilla.

Bottle at the Flying Saucer in Fort Worth, TX. First ever Vanilla Porter and I loved it. Vanilla after taste wasn’t too strong, just right. Delightful beer.

Big vanilla nose, brown body with tan headm quickly left. Nose is vanilla, almost a fakeness to it. Taste well... There is vanilla, and choclate, almost like a milk shake. Odd, not nearly as good as I thought it would be. Mystery 2.0 thanks to SHP555!

Pours a deep, dark brown color with a thin tan head. Vanilla is definitely present in the aroma. Also some brown sugar and possibly molasses. Heavy vanilla presence in the flavor, as well as some roasted malt. A good balance, and done very well. One of the better porter’s I have had.

Warm chocolate chip cookie, in a glass. Another day I might pine for more complexity. But right now, yum.

Kinz (3286) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - APR 19, 2007
Deep brown, aroma faintly of coffee and chocolate. Flavor is mostly light coffee and milk chocolate at first, with a hint of vanilla. As it warms, vanilla picks up pace considerably, and in the end is the dominant flavor. Not bad, but almost seemingly artificial, even though I know it isn’t supposed to be.

BeerVirgin72 (880) - Pickerington, Ohio, USA - APR 19, 2007
Poured a dark brown, with no head. Very slight vanilla aroma...Taste was very unique and quite enjoyable. Sweet chocolate, with some malts, and roasted nuts, followed up with a HUGE sweet vanilla finish...I really liked the vanilla flavor...But I LOVE vanilla flavored anything really. And this vanilla is VERY good...This was such a bizarre tasting beer, but really really good. I think this would be great to cook with, personally, would make a great sweet sauce for a dessert!

Bockyhorsey (2610) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - APR 19, 2007
12oz. bottle. Chocolate and vanilla aromas. Dark body but held to light a deep red color with tan head. Flavor was like a chocolate vanilla cream soda. High level of carbination as to why I say soda not beer. Nonetheless a decent refreshment while watching some baseball games.

Fairly standard porter flavour infused with a vanilla zinger. Only a mild hop characteristics, overall a sweet beer. Worth a try.

mrjames (21) - Clinton Twp, Michigan, USA - APR 17, 2007
12 oz bottle. Strong chocolate malt and vanilla flavors. Light on the roasted malt and a very light hop profile. Sweet flavored beer. More like an extra dark brown than a true porter
