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.

Bottle. Poured a small tan head that mostly diminished with decent lacing, carbonated, transparent, and a dark red with some brown for the hue. The aroma was malty sweet, caramel, some chocolate notes, and vanilla. Flavor was very nice-sweet, malty, caramel, chocolate and some roastiness. Smooth, thin mouthfeel. Light body. A very smooth, quaffable brew.

No porter, only vanilla. Tast of vanilla overrides any porter qualities...if there were any.

OhioDad (2493) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - APR 23, 2006
12oz bottle pours dark brown with a film of an offwhite head and no lacing. Aroma is of vanilla and not much else. Flavor is a bit of roasted malts but mostly overpowering vanilla with a touch of chocolate worked in. Palate is medium bodied without much carbonation and a rather thin mouthfeel. Drinkable but I expected much more.

waolsen (1358) - Littleton, Colorado, USA - APR 19, 2006
bottle. dark maple pour with thick frothy tan head. vanilla aroma not much else. bland aroma overall. vanilla flavoring gets stronger in the aftertaste. sweet chocolate on the palate as well. another average breck.

Ughsmash (7124) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - APR 15, 2006
Bottled. Poured an iced tea/burgundy with little wisps of beige head. Nose was heavily vanilla-centric with lightly-roasted chocolate, too. Vanilla drove the flavor, too... with woodsy notes and mildly charred chocolate behind it. Palate was lighter-bodied, and felt a tad empty across the middle. This was alright.. but missing some complexity. Enjoyed it more as it warmed.

The vanilla presence was artificial and slightly cloying in this rendition of a porter. Roast and char notes, although present were not enough to make up for the one dimesional flavor.

YourDarkLord (1800) - Urbana, Illinois, USA - APR 13, 2006
Being a big fan of Soney Creek Original Vanila Porter, especially on tap, I was anxious to try this. Deep brown with a frothy tan head, it gave off aromas of vanilla wafers, chocolate malt, some caramel. Too much carbonation for a porter and a bit on the thin side. The vanilla flavor was not cloying. This was a nice drink.

vyvvy (3951) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - APR 10, 2006
The pour brings a dark brown almost balck liquid with a very faint reddish hue with held to a light. Nice tan head on the beer. Aromas is creamy roasted vanilla beans with a bit of oak. The porter taste starts iwth a light smooth roasted flavor and then gives way to lots of vanilla bean taste. At this point it almost gives the impression that it has been oak aged. The finish has a nice light hop bitterness, but the taste that stays with you is the creamy vanilla flavor. Very nice beer.

Terminus (3231) - Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA - APR 10, 2006
bottle-mahogony red with a very small beige head. looks thin and light to be a porter really. big vanilla bean, char and chocolate notes emit from my glass. flavors are abundantly vanilla and taste somewhat artificial. body is very weak, lacking any real substance. very one dimensional and weak. Try again Breckenridge.
