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. Pours Dark brown-black with a resilient off-tan head. Aroma is simple; chocolate and cereal, some roastiness. Taste is similar, chocolate, cereal, vanilla. Medium body. No lacing. Low-medium carbonation. This beer reminds me so much of chocolate cereal. Cocoa Pebbles or something along those lines. I enjoy it. I think this is a reliable go to for a sweeter porter and would probably make a nice gateway beer as well.

I found this to be an unexpected surprise! Got it at my local Publix in a bottle. The taste is a warm vanilla, mixed with a chocolate and well bodied mouth feel. Very nice tan head when poured. More of a yeast flavor than a hoppy flavor, which suits me very well as I am not a hop freak. Has a bit of alcohol flavor, which for me, is a bit of a down side, but not so much of one that it turns me off of it. If you allow it to "breath" a bit, the flavor comes out more. I would love to buy this again, however, this was the last 6 pack that Publix had! (sigh) I’m sure I’ll find it again.

Nitro draft! Aroma is a creamy dark malt. Appearance is a dark brown with a tan head. Taste is a sweet vanilla that rolls into dark malt and finishes pretty even. Overall, a good beer that is a classic in my book. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

"a nice lively brew due mainly to the good use of vanilla, otherwise not too much to this fairly light but smooth porter. might be boring w/o the beans, but with them, tasty and smells like dessert."

Rated from notes taken 7 Aug 2011 -- Quintessential Porter. Easy drinking and delicious. Love the vanilla flavor, very mild and complimentary.

Nice dark roasted, chocolate, porter, with an amazing smack of vanila. I will say the nitrogen carbonated version is amazing. A much thicker, creamer head which is very vital for something like this. If you get the opportunity to get a nitro version, get it.

Nitro at Knotty Barrel, San Diego. Dark brown with lasting creamy head, obvs. Aroma of chocolate, vanilla, coffee, roast. Tastes moderate sweet, light bitter light acidity, dry finish. Thinnish but nitro hides it. Alright.

Dark brown pour with minimal lightly lacing tan head. Aroma is toasted malt, a bit of chocolate and espresso, and hues of vanilla. Taste is medium sweet with an oily lightly carbonated vanilla finish. A pretty good offering from Breckenridge.

A nice chocolate malty creamy vanilla. Sweet with a bit off light sourness. Thin but thick due to nitro. Great for breakfast. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
