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.

Pretty good and sweet beer, a bit watery and flat but with a pleasant vanilla aroma and easy to drink. Very nutty.

Bottle at Stone Row Jim Thorpe. Clear brown thin head. Malty nose. Vanilla and sweet malt. A bit of a candy profile.

rdixon77 (971) - Georgia, USA - FEB 10, 2015
Eh. Dark brown pour. Roasted malts, nuttiness, sweetness in the aroma. Taste is pretty sweet upfront.Vanilla is in there, but subtle and almost sour/tangy tasting. Bitter finish. Creamy mouthfeel over all.

Poured from bottle into downhill beer transport device (glass mug with handle) while watching womens downhill ski racing on tv out of Colorado with tons of snow piling up outside the window. Aroma: caramel Appearance: dark with hints of red in the corners, nice tan head Taste: smooth, coffee ice cream flavor. Not roasted/smoked like some porters. Not a lot of vanilla for me, but yummy nontheless, slight bitter/caramel finish, Palate: smooth and slightly creamy. Beer #3 out of 6 from my mixed-porter 6 pack taste test. My favorite so far.

Brandon1989 (385) - Euless, Texas, USA - JAN 29, 2015
Pours a dark brown almost black with a medium tan head that left lots of lacing. The aroma is vanilla, roasted malts, nuttiness, chocolate, and coffee. The taste is more of the same.

Very soft creamy feel. I had this in both nitro at world of beer and bottle from the store. Both are very good but nitro is the best. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Had this at WOB on nitro. This is a low abv, sweet beer with a thin mouth feel. No cloying flavors, very well balanced.
