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.

pours beautiful burgundy with a deep bright red. thin pale head. smeels of vannila and nothing more. really sweet start alot of vinnila with a faint bitterness to finish. another extremely smooth beer with very little carbonation. i think its a good gateway brew.

JB175 (1665) - Bucks County, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 10, 2007
Dark brown pour with a tan head. Very sweet aroma with lots of vanilla and some roast. Flavor was excessively sweet with way too much vanilla. Drinkable, but kind of disappointing.

Suprisingly not terrible. Pours a deep red, minimal head. Aroma is heavy vanilla, almost like chocolate ice cream and coffee. Flavor starts out nicely, big chocolate and coffee notes coated in a very smooth but strong vanilla flavor. About 2/3 of the way through, something starts to miss (I think it’s the vanilla meeting the hops) and things become fairly chemical-like, ending grassy with a dry tart on the tongue.

on tap at oasis in rockford. no, it was a bottle. poured dark with a brown head. I don’t know how much vanilla they add but you could sure taste it. A bit of chocolate to boot. Refreshing and smooth. I would have this again, no question about it.

biggcb (464) - Harleysville, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 8, 2007
Bottle. Pours a deep brown color with a med-sized beige head. Aroma is nice mix of malt, chocolate, nuts and vanilla. Flavor is on the sweetish side, with a solid malt backbone, vanilla, coffee. Interesting, but a touch on the thin side. Somewhat dry. Worth a go, but nothing earth shattering.

thefederalist (294) - Jonesboro, Arkansas, USA - MAY 6, 2007
Draught @ Flying Saucer Little Rock 5-2-07. Dark brown, minimal tan head. Vanilla aroma. Flavor is sweet but not excessive. I consider this to be a nice dessert beer.

VegDisc41 (42) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 4, 2007
Bottle. Pour brownish black with a very thin off-white head. Only a faint scent of vanilla and hop. Taste was malt, chocolate and overall vanilla especially the aftertaste. It’s maybe too light for a porter. Not complex, but definitely a new flavor for me.

adwoan99 (244) - Ft. Worth, Texas, USA - MAY 2, 2007
This beer pours a nice dark, toasty brown with very little head. Aroma and flavor are predominantly vanilla, but has a nice roasted tone to it. Not very complex, but drinkable.

Deep brown with a small head.Can see light through the glass. Rich vanilla and chocolate aroma. Rich vanilla and chocolate taste. Vanilla and a bit of grassy hops and roasted nuts. I really like vanilla. I’ve even liked it in some dark beers. But this seems like a bit much.

Dark Brown with Cream Ring. Light Roasted Malts and Real Rich Vanilla Notes on the Nose. Heavy Mouthfeel..Very Creamy. Nice Thick Malty Body with Mild Roasts and Sweet Almost Syrupy Vanilla Overtones. Ends Bittersweet and Lightly Roasted. Very Nice. Obtained This Bottle Directly From Colorado...HAVE noted that Breckenridge’s Beers Don’t Ship to Minnesota Well At all.
