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.

I thoroughly enjoyed this for what it is, and what it is is something that would make for a great session beer. Love the sweet aroma on this one. Does get a bit watery toward the end like an English Porter.

I see that this rating isn’t much out of line with what I gave Stoney Creek’s Vanilla P. either (3.7). So I just like this style more than the average user, that’s all.

UPDATED: MAY 20, 2009 Bottle. Aroma and taste are creamy vanilla. Vanilla is not overpowering, nicely blended in with the beer character. Overall, a very interesting drink, though I am not sure when I would have it again. If you like vanilla, try this one.

Interesting idea, just didn’t like the end product much. Aroma and flavor were both very heavy on the vanilla (seemed artificial), some caramel malt. Not overly disgusting, but not very good. Seemed to like it less and less actually.

Very dark brown/garnet but not terribly thick-looking; tan, mostly fizzy, slightly frothy head diminishes into a tiny ring. Aroma and flavor are almost identical: Very heavy vanilla, light caramel and toffee; sweet; almost no noticeable hops. By the time you get halfway through the beer your "vanilla sensors" have worn out, and the true plainness of the beer comes out. Medium body; lightly sticky. I absolutely love this level of vanilla, but without the vanilla this would be an extremely lame beer; not anywhere near as sugary or sticky as some people are making it out to be at all.

Bottle. Dark brown in color with a small brownish head. Sweet vanilla aroma- smells almost fake, but not quite. Too sweet of a flavor for what I was expecting. I have had vanilla beers before that were much less sticky-sweet which I enjoyed more.

Dark porter brown, almost stout looking, on tap. Caramel colored head. Not much of an odor, just a hint of the vanilla. Taste is like vanilla water. I don’t like this one much.

Black. Vanilla tasting as it should be. Had a good body. It tasted like a light cream soda.

A 12 oz bottle with a freshness date on the label. The beer poured a dark brown alomst pop like with tan head. The smell is a sweet vanilla and a slight malt. The taste is a nice mild vanilla, it is all most like drinking rootbeer. The carbonation and mouth feel are just like pop. Nice!

bottle - Pours very dark brown with a thin head. Roasted malts and vanilla are present in the light aroma and more-so in the flavor. Smooth and medium bodied, it has ample vanilla flavor. While quite good, it could have used a little stronger roast malt backbone.

Black with a medium amount of light-brown head. The nose has a smooth vanilla smell, a little sweet. It has a creamy texture and tastes just like cream soda. Tastes like cream and coffee in the aftertaste. “Refreshingly different. It needs to be a change of pace beer,” – Brad. Kind of sweet in the aftertaste, I wish it was a little more bitter right at the end.
