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.

Bottle. Pours a dark brown with a light brown head that diminishes somewhat rapidly. Aroma has a very present vanilla scent as well as chocolate and roasted malt. Very unique aroma. Flavour is sweet, with a heavy vanilla flavour as well as sweet chocolate, roasted malt, and some hops. Carbonation is just right and mouthfeel is pleasant, but a little thin. Finish is somewhat astringent with subtle chocolate and nut flavours that disappear quickly. It’s an interesting brew, just that I’m a little underwhelmed by it as I have been by many of the Breckenridge brews I’ve tried so far. Still, it’s a decent brew and I’ll be perfectly happy drinking the rest of the 6-pack.

Nice rich aromatic smell. Tastes and smells very similar. Rich subtle vanilla taste. Fairly easy to drink for quite a dark beer. Decent, I thought, but I haven’t had but a couple other porters.

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!

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.

hopdog (10105) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 30, 2007
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.
