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.

12 fl oz bottle. Pours hazy brown/amber with light brown head. Slight roasted malt with a whiff of vanilla. Chocolate and vanilla. More a cookie than a beer. Not bad as such, just different.

Papsoe (25089) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - SEP 19, 2007
(Bottle 35,5 cl) Courtesy of yespr. Clear, dark brown with an orange hue and arough, off-white head. Aroma of roasted malt and vanilla. Medium body, sweetish roasted malts and then these very distinct vanilla accents. The bitterness is very discreet. Vanilla goes well in bourbon flavoured beers, but otherwise I really don’t dig it. 180907

fiulijn (14340) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 18, 2007
Dark brown color. Light aroma of chestnuts, caramel and milk chocolate. Bad flavor of cheap chocolate, not as bad as the Floris, but in that direction. Very difficult to drink.

yngwie (13191) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 19, 2013
Bottle, 12oz. It pours a reddish light brown body, clear, with a small, dense, light beige head. The aroma is mostly on the roasted side, with caramel, some chocolate and vanilla. Something strange that I can’t idenfity too. The flavor doesn’t have that unwanted strange thing though, just chocolate, coffee, caramel and vanilla, and some bitterness. Medium to full body, semi-dry, and plesantly carbonated. Not too sweet neither initially nor in the end. Still, not my favorite vanilla porter in any way, it lacks a bit on complexity, but then it’s only 4.7% ABV. 130819
