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.

AndresTM (434) - Texas, USA - DEC 23, 2013
On tap. The nose has faint vanilla and malted barley -- not much coming from the roasted department, except perhaps a little chocolate. The taste is mostly malts and a bit of sweet vanilla, with some hops providing a bit of two-dimensionality. Not much of a mouthfeel for a purportedly dark beer. Weaksauce for a porter, but still a drinkable beer.

Can - nitro (another in the "How the Hell did I miss this" series). Vanilla, chocolate malt and straw aroma. Very dark brown with light tan head. Moderately sweet vanilla chocolate malt, and mildly bitter hay flavor. No carbonation, nice body. Very nice.

MarcoDL (4149) - NETHERLANDS - SEP 2, 2016
UPDATED: SEP 2, 2016 Nitro draft at slaters. Aroma of creamy roasted malt, vanilla and chocolate. Taste had creamy roast, vanilla, nuts and chocolate. Nice.

jflopsu (1198) - New Jersey, USA - JUL 22, 2016
Pours a dark brown with white head. A strong chocolate and creamy aroma. A very rich creamy chocolate taste with some malts and coffee. A nice balanced chocolate aftertaste.

Boomersmancave1 (132) - Wheatland, Indiana, USA - JUL 2, 2016
Out of all the vanilla porters on the market, this one kicks butt. Bottle. Vanilla and malt aroma. Malty vanilla flavors, but it's more intense than other vanilla porters out there. Nice beer!

jsporrer (711) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 20, 2016
Pours a clear medium brown with a medium head of tan foam. Not much aroma. Fairly thin and watery with not much flavor. Not really bad but just not that good.

Pumpkin87 (231) - - JUN 14, 2016
Pours from bottle a deep dark brown with garnet depths, one-finger, slightly pinkish buff head that leaves some nice lacing. Nose is roast malt, caramel, slight milk chocolate. First swallow had me asking where the vanilla was, but that came through stronger after a moment. Sprightly mix with the malt and lactose, balanced again chocolate and whiff of dark fruit without becoming heavy. The selling points here are creamy mouthfeel, controlled alcohol and pleasant flavor not trying to pulverize your palate. A good session beer.

arn8897 (320) - Trenton, Ohio, USA - JUN 9, 2016
Pours dark brown with a tan head. Aromas of vanilla and caramel notes. Light lacing in the glass. Decent beer. Light mouth feel.

ndburns (166) - Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JUN 3, 2016
355ml bottle from The Perfect Pour. Pours a very dark brown with reddish tinges, and a tan head. Scent strongly indicates vanilla, some roast maltiness coming through. Flavor is strongly vanilla as well, with more usual stout aspects supporting. Only a little sweet, and with a dry finish. Nothing complex going on, but very drinkable.

Sample at Waldo Hopfest 2016. Comes dark brown with a small tan head. Aroma of vanilla and chocolate. Taste is vanilla, chocolate, and roasted malt. Pretty good.

Pours a very dark brown with beige head. Chocolate aroma, as well as vanilla. Sweet taste with notes of caramel, vanilla, chocolate, and roasted malts.
