2.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
The aroma was intoxicating, but the vanilla flavor was lacking. Not my favorite of the Breckenridge beers.

Bottle. Pours a hazy brown with white head. Aroma of vanilla and caramel. Tastes of vanilla, caramel and bitter hops. Very sweet finish. A sweet and delicious beer.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Not bad at all. Strong vanilla flavor. Sweeter than I’d prefer. But, quite flavorful for the ABV.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
It pours brown with a tan head. The head doesn’t leave lacing. The aroma is a bit of nuts, a syrupy smell, and that’s about it. The taste does involve vanilla with a bit of poppy carbonation and roasted malts.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Nothing remarkable here. Actually pretty forgettable. Has the classic porter flavor with a presence of vanilla. On the light side for me with a lack luster aroma and pour.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured from a 12 oz bottle. Transparent brown, beige head faded quickly, but left some decent lacing. Aroma of vanilla and some lightly roasted malts. This is a little sweeter than it should be IMHO. Nice vanilla finish. This is a pretty light, thin beer, average carbonation.
This was from a "craft your own 6 pack" from the local beer store. Not sure what the price usually is, but if it’s comparable to Leinie’s Vanilla Porter it’s Okay.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a brown color with a white foam head. Aroma is light vanilla and caramel malts. Flavor is sweet vanilla with a touch of bitterness in the finish. This beer is pretty much all vanilla, and I like it.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from 12oz brown bottle into nonic pint glass, a clear dark reddish brown colour with weak beige foam and some lace. Aromas of sweet grains, strong vanilla, nice earthy English-style hop impression. Flavours: toasty, slight tartness, black pepper, charred wood, strong vanilla again giving it a root beer soda taste. Lighter body than expected, slight residual sweetness, medium carbonation. Good, easy-drinking, too much vanilla personally, but I can see why it’s so popular.
