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.

Given the ingredients, I would expect more aroma out of this beer, which is disappointing. Good appearance and the flavor is what makes the beer. Other than wine and mead, I have never tasted such a great presence of vanilla. Not overpowering either, just right. The aftertaste is almost like drinking the milk after eating a sugar cereal. Kind of weird. Overall, the uniqueness of this bear is what makes it worth having. Keep drinking it to avoid the soggy cereal aftertaste. Then have another!

stegosaurus (1882) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 1, 2007
Bottle from Capones. Pours brown with ruby edges and an average size tan head. Aroma of roast, chocolate malts, and vanilla extract. The flavor is vanilla, sweet, and roasted chocolate malts. good brew.

Medicinal lilac aroma. Very heavy but soft mouthfeel. On the sweet side with cola and vanilla flavors but not quite sweet enough to highlight the vanilla. Finshes with lingering chocolate. Overall, a bit like a malted and not much more complex than that.

Pours, quite dark with a ncie dark head, malty aromas, very strong vanilla taste, I felt like I was sucking on vanilla bean most of the time. I would have prefered a little less vanilla taste, and more dark chocolate malts but hey thats my opinion. maybe a bit more structure on the palate too.

12oz bottle. Poured a dark brown color with an averaged sized tan head. Aromas of roasted and toasted nuts, chocolate, and lighter vanilla. Tastes of vanilla (more than the aromas), chocolate, lighter roast, and nuts. Body a tad on the thin side.

Hollywoodt (239) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - MAY 25, 2007
Poured a dark brown with minimal white head. Aroma was dark, sweet malt with just a slight hint of the vanilla. In the flavor, the malt was more dark and roasted. The vanilla is used well in this brew. It’s not overwhelming (but close), but it is a nice touch. No ttoo bad at all.

Nice black pour with a puffy tan head. Aroma is nice and creamy with a subtle vanilla aroma. Some coffee as well. Flavor is loaded with vanilla. Very sweet and creamy flavor with some roasted chocolate malts and a slightly nutty finish. Really sweet finish and aftertaste.

madcow75 (426) - Sun Prairie, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 22, 2007
Bottle. Pours dark brown, with red when held up to the light. Medium light brown head. Mild aroma of vanilla and some toasted malts and chocolate. Upfront taste is vanilla and then the chocolate and slight bitterness follow. Smooth, sticky, astringent.

Wiseblood (700) - Clarksville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 22, 2007
Dark shade of brown with red highlights, but no head. Lots of carbonation-looked almost cola-like. Sweet vanilla and molasses aroma that seemed a little synthetic. Good blend of roasted malts and sharp, acidic, vanilla flavor. Comes across as a bit watery overall though and ends with a sticky, astringent finish.
