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 at America on Tap. Deep brown with a small off white head. Lots of vanilla flavor with some light caramel and chocolate maltiness behind it. I would have preferred a richer sweeter malt base to counter the vanilla.

Bottle. Roasted malt aroma with chocolate and vanilla notes. Pours very dark brown with a thin light brown head with good retention and some lacing. Starts with roasted malt flavors with chocolate and a hint of vanilla as well as a medium body. Finishes quite smooth with the roasted and chocolate malt fading to the background and the vanilla coming to front assertively to coat the palate with a lovely vanilla flavor. Excellent vanilla porter!

Draft pour at the field brewpub. Rating from notes. This beer was the standout favorite from the Breckenridge beers, and it was hardly close. Pours a dark brownish red color with a big bubble head. Vanilla comes through huge here. Definitely the dominant flavor, as expected. Sweet caramel, with minimum chocolate. Pretty good porter. Good beer here.

Hoprider (423) - DENMARK - SEP 19, 2015
Pours clear reddish brown with a beige head. Smells like a brown ale. So far from a baltic porter, which I guess is my reference style of porter. Nutty caramel flavors. Thin mouthfeel, weak aftertaste. Very easy drinker. The label promises too much imho. Btw. Where’s the vanilla?

MotherBrother (898) - Aalborg, DENMARK - SEP 12, 2015
Pour is a deep mahogany brown, with a small slightly creamy (not really tho) white head. Aroma has some old nutty notes, vanilla extract, dirt and shoes. Taste is somewhat bitter, with a slight sweet start. Slightly full bodied (compared to a brown ale) this really isn’t my thing.... Sorry.

Bottle in Chevy Chase, MD. Nice rub body with slight head. Nose is chocolate, roasty, caramel and nuts. Quite sweet with a hoppy and citrus finish.
