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.

12oz bottle. Pour is dark brown with no head. Not really much in the aroma. I get some vanilla and a bit of roastiness. Mouth is vanilla, a bit of syrup and a hint of bitterness. Medium-to-full bodied. Not bad.

jsporrer (524) - 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.

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.

Pours dark brown with a tan head. Aromas of vanilla and caramel notes. Light lacing in the glass. Decent beer. Light mouth feel.

ndburns (92) - 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.

There are many vanilla porters out there with varying degrees of deliciousness. This BB vanilla porter is one of the best. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

KansaiBeerLvrs (4237) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAY 16, 2016
Tasting flight at the taproom in Denver. Cola black with a light beige head. The aroma is soft pats, vanilla and chocolate. Nice. Smooth luscious body which is probably all down to the Nitro. The taste is sugary sweet vanilla that seems like extract plus chewey oat like malt character. Alright but I can’t believe the best beer I had here was a boring amber ale. These guys brew macro-style craft...

This is a fun beer. Not pretentious, just easily approachable porter with vanilla aroma. Perfect with vanilla ice cream. Good dark malt, low hop bitterness and real vanilla aroma. Nice

Gespuccian (104) - Wisconsin, USA - MAR 23, 2016
Pour is a kind of reddish brown, transparent, with a finger of head that dissipates pretty quickly. Nose is sweet vanilla and a little bit of roast. Taste is heavy on the sweet vanilla, with a little bit of roasty malt in for some backbone. This just doesn’t say porter to me.
