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.

Had on draft. Pours a dark brown. Finger head heavy lacing. Vanilla and nutty aroma. Taste starts with vanilla and a dark chocolate.. finishes with a nutty flavor that lingers on the palate. Overall not a bad porter.

This was the nitro version on tap. Pleasant aroma of vanilla and some nuttiness. Milk chocolate color with a thin foamy head. It looked creamy. Nitro adds this and smoothness, which provided an impressive palate. Carbonation was lower as expected. Strong vanilla and roasted notes. Pretty malty with a low hops presence. A little sweet for my taste and this definitely came across as a dessert beer.

12oz bottle. Dark amber color. A vanilla aroma. A sweet and wooden taste. Not a bad beer, but the aged version is much better.

rand (1290) - SWITZERLAND - FEB 6, 2014
Bottle 12 fl.oz from Drinks of the World - Bern (CH). Dark reddish brown, off-white and fleeting head, some laces on the glass. Aromas of malt, chocolate, vanilla. That we find to the taste, soft flavor, cup Denmark, choc-vanilla, brown sugar-caramel, fruity of hop and smell of coffee. A beautiful set.

I would say that i normally rate things on the generous side. Whether it is food or beer, I am more inclined to say, "eh it wasn’t that bad i guess" even if it should be more critically rated. I preface with that, because that is really saying something when I rate this beer so poorly. I poured rather aggressively and I was absolutely shocked that it produced NO head. Not very little, not less than I’d prefer...NO HEAD. After a few seconds all that was left was a rootbeer-ish foam rim around the glass and that haze that sits in the middle of the glass. To put it in perspective, I literally had to look at the bottle and box to make sure I had not accidentally bought a fancy soda. The mouthfeel is very thin and carbonated like a soda. That is probably the best way to describe the experience: soda-ish.

Bottle from bhensonb. Pours dark brown with a thick beige head and a chocolate aroma. There is a medium-bodied chocolate and vanilla flavor with a nutty finish.

Kinda plain really. Not bad by any means but nothing standing out about it. Not too heavy on the vanilla. Not gonna be a beer I seek after but won’t mind if someone offers.

TizzleJizzle (621) - Garland, Texas, USA - JAN 25, 2014
12 oz bottle. Poured a clear mahogany with a thin tan top, little to no lacing. Taste of vanilla, slight roasted malt, slight chocolate milk. Medium carbonation, medium body. Overall nothing special.

airrick2003 (479) - Louisiana, USA - JAN 25, 2014
Appearance: a very dark maroon color that looks black unless light is shining thru it, beer is clear, pours with a small light tan head that fades quickly Aroma: vanilla, dark roast coffee, pretty faint Taste: coffee of course, a pretty assertive vanilla flavor is nicely added on top Palate: moderate mouthfeel, soft carbonation, slight coffee aftertaste Overall: i like the vanilla in there, pretty simple flavor, not a bad porter

Pours dark brown. Aromas of hazelnut, and slight burnt sugar. The taste is creamy vanilla up front with a bitter syrupy middle, and sharp clean aftertaste. The palate has a thin body and pretty high carbonation. Decent but, lacking overall composition.
