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.

A long running brew, this one sets a solid standard for Vanilla Porters. Rich and dark, but not too heavy.... it’s easy to drink. This is a good style for the cold months.

Pours a clear dark reddish brown, but not opaque. Has a decent off white head. Aroma is nutty and caramely. Taste is sweet roasted malt, chocolate, caramel, vanilla and a bit of coffee bitterness. Pretty good brew.

Pours dark brown with a thin creamy head, typical of porters. Immediate chocolate/coffee notes with a very light vanilla after taste. I like the lightness of the vanilla taste. It tastes natural and not overdone or fake. Overall good porter.

Nuts and strong scent of chocolate are present upon first whiff. Right away, you can tell that it’s a porter with flavor. Pours much like any other porter, minimal creamy head. A chocolate porter upon first sip, but a nice hint of vanilla follows in the aftertaste.

Bottle. Pours dark brown with a one-inch ivory head that dissipates to a thin film. Aromas of dark fruit, coffee and chocolate. Flavors are gypsum, coffee, and plum. Vanilla and licorice in the finish. Thin, watery mouthfeel. Not great, but not bad.

Bottle. I didn’t really care for this the first time I tried it. But I’d already bought six of em, so hey....ya gotta drink em, right? Gotta say I’m glad I went back for seconds! Thoroughly enjoyed the second one..and the third...etc. Vanilla, chocolate, nuts, with a nice balance of hops. Well made! Has a permanent spot in my fridge. Solid pour!

Beautiful cascade effect when this beer is poured. It has a cream color which for a pretty color gradient with the black color of the beer itself. Smooth with strong vanilla aroma and has a creamy mouth feel.

This was poured into a nonic pint glass. The appearance was a soft mostly dark brown color with no head nor lacing. The smell starts off with a light roasted coffee bean, vanilla slightly comes into balance with a light cocoa coming about. Light nuttiness does also enter in as it warms. The taste has a mellow roast to semi-sweet vanilla/cocoa that leads to a gentle dry and roasty coffee aftertaste and finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. Overall, as an American Porter it works. The added bonus, the vanilla and that helps to make this a subtle dessert on a late Spring evening.
