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.

I did not like this one much at all. It is fairly sweet, lacks bitterness, and is dark in color but has only a weak roast in the aroma. The vanilla combined with the sweetness makes it taste a lot more like cream soda than a typical beer. Pretty disappointing. I love vanilla when it’s paired with a drier beer, or a richer, more bitter and complex beer, but this one was just too simple and sweet, and too much like a soft drink.

Decent porter with strong coffee and chocolate flavors but lacking some vanilla. Overall a great beer, but since it is advertised as being vanilla, I would expect more vanilla.

I poured it from a bottle to a pint glass and it was purchased in Denver, CO. Typical Vanilla Porter I Guess. I like Dry Docks better to be honest wit you. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Decent porter. Not as much vanilla as i would like but still good. Lots of coffee and some chocolate caramel. A little but of metallic tinge to it but still decent porter.

Poured from bottle into shaker. Cola brown, with little off-white head that diminishes quickly. Little smell, with faint notes of vanilla. Taste has some vanilla/ crean soda, with a slightly bitter porter bite at the end. Quite a bit of carbonation, so not remarkably smooth. Overall, not great, but ok for what it is. Kind of like drinking a soda.

A nice vanilla porter. Pours a brown-black with very little head. Smells of vanilla and cinnamon. Taste has a lot of vanilla, starts smooth, with a sweet middle. Not the most interesting, but nice overall. Had in the bottle in Vermont.

While the nitro makes for an overall smooth experience, the aroma and taste. are lacking. Very sweet vanilla nose, and creamy mouth feel, however.porter notes are completely lost.

An interesting beer to try! I thought it would be too sweet but it turns out to have quite a good balance! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
