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.

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!

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.

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

pours black with no head. Smell was sweet with a faint vanilla hint. Taste was of course vanilla and a bit of chocolate. It was a bit too sweet for my taste, but it was different.

Tastes like vanilla extract. Pours the color of a stout and has somewhat of the same taste. The vanilla hints add a nice addition to the flavor but is somewhat lacking. good but not great.

12 oz bottle via Mystyery Swap 2.0 (thanks shp555!). This one pours a dark brown almost black with a tiny beige head. Nose is mostly vanilla and roasted barley. Taste is vanilla, chocolate, raisins, and perhaps even a little milk lactose. Medium body, moderate to high carbonation. Pretty good and easy to drink, although i would prefer less carbonation.

Odeed (1776) - Bakersfield, California, USA - APR 8, 2007
(bonus brew from ughsmash)dark brown with an off-white head that fades fast.aroma is loaded with syrupy vanilla,and is then followed with brownies,and chocolate cake.a little over the top on the sweetness if ya ask me.flavor is much of the same with the vanilla really dominating.as with the aroma,the sweetness in the flavor is just to much.

On tap at the Vintage Estate Wine & Beer in Boardman OH. A great place! Big 16 oz glass for only $4. The look of this beer is very dark brown almost black with an orange tinge. Head is tan and about an eighth inch thick. Head fades to froth after a few minutes. Roasty sort of smell with hints of burned wood. Beery smelling with vanilla in there too. First taste is not like any porter I am familiar with, more vanilla than porter. Almost like vanilla extract charcoal flavored uncooked cookie dough or french toast mix. Has a bitter flavor and viscosity that borders on imp stout. The flavor hangs for a moment or two after each gulp. Does have good tingly carbonation that is very desirable in such a chewy brew. This may be a little on the offensive side for a porter. Not as well behaved as I would have liked for a porter. A little more coarse than your typical smooth porter than I care for. Tho the finish is medium bitter, it only lingers for a short time after you are finished drinking.

(Tap) Pours a dark brown color with tan head. Strong vanilla aroma with a similar aroma. Great malty flavors impart chocolate and hazelnut flavor into the brew. Nice body, with a really great mouthfeel. Pretty well balanced, but after drinking the bottle, it starts getting a little too sweet. This would be an amazing beer if the vanilla was toned down a bit.
