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.

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.

TheEnemy (562) - Chicago, USA - JAN 10, 2007
12oz bottle.
Pours a clear dark ruby brown. White head is razor-thin but stays around for quite a while and leaves a moderate amount of lacing. Aroma is faint and basically vanilla and toffee without much else. Flavor is a buffet of vanilla, toffee, dry grain, lots of chocolate with a persistent raisin-like essence lingering on the back of the tongue. Surprisingly well-layered after the aroma suggested this beer would be tedious and one-dimensional. Medium-thick and creamy palate. A pretty impressive offering from a brewery that usually doesn’t excite me.
