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.

The vanilla accents are too sweet and very unsettling, as if someone poured vanilla root beer into a regular stout. Tasted on tap at Brooklyn Waterfront Beer Festival, 6/16/2012.

Bottle at home. For a beer that puts its name in all caps, there is nothing here that exciting. The vanilla aroma is very subdued and actually overpowered by the dark malt nose. The appearance is black with none of the ruby tint that should be present. Mellow on the palate with a smooth bitterness and very little back.

UPDATED: DEC 5, 2013 Light vanilla taste which subtly fades into a roasted malt, then leaves your palate with a balanced bitterness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

Dark liquid with a small but persistent beige head. Mainly vanilla smell, backed up by smoked malt. Great vanilla taste, well balanced, round, not very roasted / smoked. Goes down very well.Too straight forward on vanilla.

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

Tastes like a very neutral dark ale with a bit of vanilla extract. It doesn’t taste bad, but it leaves a lot to be desired.

12 oz bottle. Poured a dark brown with a small dirty linen colored head, mostly diminishing. Biggest aroma is of vanilla, but with a noticeable alcohol smell it smells more like vanilla extract than vanilla bean. Aroma of buttered sticky popcorn balls - the kind they used to pass out at Halloween. Also some faint bubblegum. It’s there. Tastes like vanilla wafers with extra vanilla flavoring. I think the vanilla may be too much here. It’s hard for me to see past it to anything else in the beer. Add the lively dose of carbonation and I could have mistaken this for a vanilla coke. Medium bodied and creamy mouthfeel. Good, but not great.

on tap at oasis in rockford. no, it was a bottle. poured dark with a brown head. I don’t know how much vanilla they add but you could sure taste it. A bit of chocolate to boot. Refreshing and smooth. I would have this again, no question about it.

Had high hopes for this beer, but very disappointed. Way too light for a porter, where is the flavor? And the vanilla seemed out of place. Not for me.

Gorgeous brew...dark warm malty flavor. Tastes like drinking dark hot chocolate. Smooth as silk and beautiful deep caramel head. Had on a whim at the Cyclone Liquors’ tasting and boy am I glad I did.
