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.

Good but not outstanding. Has decent aroma and flavor but is not very complex. Could be more robust.

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.

basaywhat (49) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - SEP 15, 2014
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.

Itzjerm (1287) - Taft, Tennessee, USA - SEP 15, 2014
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

Smooth and flavorful. Always an easy choice. Good vanilla light porter, easy drinking when you want a dark beer you can drink all night.

Pours dark brown with highlights and a smallish head. Vanilla and roasted malt aromas. Taste is roasty with artificial vanilla. Not so nice.

Pours a rich dark coffee bean color, but thinly tasting for a porter. Hint of vanilla on first taste but something drier and sharper. Pepper perhaps? ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
