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. 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.

12 oz. bottle. Pours dark brown with a medium sized beige head that hangs on for a bit. The aroma is coffee, roasted malt, light chocolate, and vanilla. The flavor comes off a bit sweeter than the aroma let on. The vanilla and roasted malt take center stage with the coffee and chocolate moving more toward the finish. Medium/medium-full mouthfeel and easy to drink. I am surprised this isn’t rated higher.

Bottle from Whole Foods. Pours a dark brown with slight light brown head head. Smells of vanilla and slight sweet malt. Tastes like a nice vanilla coffee with a slight hint of chocolate. Very, very slight hop flavor. Has a good toasted malt/coffe flavor with good vanilla aroma. Nice job.

Light aroma of roasted malt, chocolate and molasses. Poured a dark brown with small, light tan head that quickly receded into a thin foamy cap. Nice light lacing. A very nice sweet flavor of roasted malt, sweet chocolate, molasses, light vanilla. A very nice bitter sweet medium finish. Very pleasant. Light body, thin, slighly oily texture, with a soft to medium carbonation. A very pleasant Porter, although a touch more vanilla would’ve been nice. I really enjoyed and will definitely buy again. Served in a Stein.

dark brown color with a thin body. aroma is sweet malts and metal. flavor is surprisingly mellow. i thought it was going to be a syrupy mess but, it turns out, it is quite mild. light coffee flavor with a hint of vanilla...almost an iced coffee. nice easy drinker...

Breckenridge Vanilla Porter surprised me and quite a few others. It poured a dark black colored body with a small head. The aroma was pleasant with a note of vanilla, malts, etc. The taste was a goldmine. It was a blend of coffee/chocolate from the roasted malts mixed prefectly with the vanilla beans. WOW! I’m ordering more of this porter

Talk about a dessert beer. Looks like your standard porter - black with a thin tan head; once the aroma hits you, though, you know you’re in for something different. I wasn’t sure what to expect with this one but the strong vanilla aroma quickly piqued my interest. The best way to describe the flavor would probably be to say it’s like drinking Hersey’s syrup. The strong vanilla flavor mixes quite well with the traditional bitter chocolate porter notes. This is probably one of those "love it or hate it" type things, but I loved it.

Dark in colour and poured with good head. Very large range of flavours. Chocolate and vanilla taste that has a lasting aftertaste. Different and enjoyable

UPDATED: JUL 31, 2007 Who would have concieved deep in your mind that 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 an extroadinary Porter, with an enigmatic electrical surprise tossed in for good measure, real genuine vanilla bean. It has a vanilla kiss in a fantastically rich, dark sea. I dedicate this beer to zack and cat, may they have many good years of marriage untill they grow sick and tired of each other and die old and grouchy together.
