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.

Tap. Smooth and creamy. The vanilla does come through. Overall mild and very drinkable.

A nice mellow porter with a sweet roundness. Subtle notes... Blah blah blah. Words ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours black with a nice off white head. Has hints of coffee and chocolate. A very smooth and creamy taste with notes of vanilla that make this one of my favorite porters.

Bottle, draft. Not sure how I missed this one. Black pour with tan head. Vanilla dominated the aroma. Flavor is vanilla forward, some light roasted tones and chocolate hints follow.

I’m not sure how to rate this. I tried this on tap at a local pub and it was served cold, as if it were a lager. Frustrating. I really didn’t have time to let it warm to room temperature. It was an easy going and smooth porter. I noticed very faint amounts of vanilla in the nose and finish.

The aroma is weak but some notes of roasted malt are perceptible. The texture is sweet and buttery. The taste of the beer is well balanced and the vanilla adds a delicious spice to the flavor. Well done.

Dark Brown, almost like a stout, nice nut and vanilla flavors; a little bitter on the finish. - March Madness 2014

Aroma: Very sweet smelling. Strong hints of vanilla. Appearance: thin line of creamy head off of pour, solid coffee color but still able to see through the glass. Taste: Great taste. Not too overpowering in the coffee or the vanilla. Excellent balance of flavors. Palate: Creamy mouth feel, flavors on the tip and back of the tongue. Overall: Excellent beer. I would definitely seek this one out again for a stout/porter night.

rumproasts (2734) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - MAR 22, 2014
bottle. Deep brown with small head. Rich porter with moderate vanilla. Also, a hint of chocolate? It’s hard to mess up a vanilla porter, and there are no issues here.

Motobashi (68) - Windsor, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 21, 2014
Poured a deep amber with no real head. Some carbonation. Sweet caramel aroma. Distinct vanilla flavour. Not as much chocolate as I would have liked. Slightly slick texture. No real bitterness. Alcohol is not noticeable at all. Overall, fairly nice but nothing overly special.
