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.

Pours a brown color with a white foam head. Aroma is light vanilla and caramel malts. Flavor is sweet vanilla with a touch of bitterness in the finish. This beer is pretty much all vanilla, and I like it.

seymour (1642) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - MAR 4, 2015
Poured from 12oz brown bottle into nonic pint glass, a clear dark reddish brown colour with weak beige foam and some lace. Aromas of sweet grains, strong vanilla, nice earthy English-style hop impression. Flavours: toasty, slight tartness, black pepper, charred wood, strong vanilla again giving it a root beer soda taste. Lighter body than expected, slight residual sweetness, medium carbonation. Good, easy-drinking, too much vanilla personally, but I can see why it’s so popular.

Eh. Dark brown pour. Roasted malts, nuttiness, sweetness in the aroma. Taste is pretty sweet upfront.Vanilla is in there, but subtle and almost sour/tangy tasting. Bitter finish. Creamy mouthfeel over all.

Poured from bottle into downhill beer transport device (glass mug with handle) while watching womens downhill ski racing on tv out of Colorado with tons of snow piling up outside the window. Aroma: caramel Appearance: dark with hints of red in the corners, nice tan head Taste: smooth, coffee ice cream flavor. Not roasted/smoked like some porters. Not a lot of vanilla for me, but yummy nontheless, slight bitter/caramel finish, Palate: smooth and slightly creamy. Beer #3 out of 6 from my mixed-porter 6 pack taste test. My favorite so far.
