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.

Tayeth (514) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JUN 6, 2015
Geruch und Geschmack sind zunächst deutlich von Vanille und Tabaknoten geprägt. Wenn das Bier wärmer wird, schlägt Tabak zu Schokolade um. Geschmack insgesamt leider ziemlich wässrig.

Braunrote Farbe. Geschmack nach Vanille und Tabak. Die Tabaknoten machen es recht bitter. Vom Aroma her super geil, aber der Geschmack überzeugt nicht so.

From 12ounce bottle into a hefeweizen glass. Strong vanilla aromatics off the glass. First on the palate is the vanilla but fades fast into the roasted malt flavors of coffee with slight hints of chocolate to finish.

BlackHaddock (5648) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 26, 2015
Happy Hour, 25th May 2015: on-tap US pint in the Yard House, Irvine. Very dark beer in a very dark bar, think the head was a tanned affair. Nose is malty, as is the taste: once the beer begins to warm and settle in the glass it gives off subtle esters and flavours hidden by the coldness on serving. Chocolate notes with a vanilla ice cream smoothness ooze out of the beer, very pleasant Porter with enough going on to not need a heavy ABV level.

trapped (1954) - New York, TURKEY - MAY 22, 2015
Bottle. Pours reddish brown with medium sized spongy beige head, vanilla mocha aroma, medium carbonation, roasted nut taste with vanilla flavor, abrupt finish with burnt aftertaste. Quite a smooth and enjoyable porter.

tfontana (474) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 14, 2015
Bottle from Hannaford Exeter, NH. Aroma is mild vanilla with a hint of chocolate. A little bit of yeasty bread dough. Appearance is clear, dark magenta--almost black with decent sparkle and only a ring of a head. Taste is strong vanilla, moderately sweet. Palate is surprisingly thin and light bodied for a porter while carbonation is fairly lively--an initial light sting to the lips and then a bit later on the tongue. Finish is pretty average with mix of sweet and mild bitter. Overall, a good choice if you are looking for a really light porter (almost a non-porter) with the appearance and taste characteristics but not the palate.

Beersmithbacon (111) - San Luis Rey, California, USA - MAY 12, 2015
Excellent example of a porter. With the added vanilla. Vanilla was present but not overpowering. Light mild roast and a lager like finish.

This porter is very smooth, a little bit chocolatey. Drinkable and will have again. Love the mouth feel.

beer_rookie (305) - USA - APR 30, 2015
Pours a dark brown, black maybe. Creamy beige head, but not too thick. All kinds of lacing as I drink it.

Aroma is of dark roasted malt, and coffee, and chocolate. Not really getting much vanilla. Ooh, coming in late, is some hops.

Taste is very clean. I can taste the vanilla, but it’s not really bold. It’s more in the finish. I taste quite a bit of chocolate. It’s the typical porter, plus vanilla.

Mouthfeel is medium body. It’s sweet, but not so vanilla. It’s a porter. Very nice. Very inviting. Could use a little more body.

Overall, it’s delicious. This is one I would certainly seek out and drink. It’s very tasty. Very drinkable, and yet, not so high in alcohol that it wouldn’t be sessionable. Yay!
