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.

Pours dark brown with slight tan head - not much lacing. Very faint roasty/vanilla aroma. The vanilla in the flavor is quite subtle as well, which is welcome. Just wish it had a thicker palate and a bit more complexity. Overall a nice beer though.

chalicemaster (111) - Ohio, USA - MAY 1, 2013
Pours very dark - seemingly black but with a tinge of red. Quite attractive in colour and aroma, with a very roasty feeling on the nose. However, the taste is overly sweet and bitter all at the same time. I feel like my palate is overwhelmed by the sweetness and then a bitterness lingers all around for a while after it goes down. Truthfully, I don’t hate it because I think it is kind of interesting take on the vanilla porter, and it certainly isn’t bland. With the right food pairing, I think it could be good.

Strong aromatic vanilla on the nose. My mouth is salivating already. Dark molasses in color with a nice light tan head, although not too long lasting. Full body vanilla bean flavor with a sweet syrupy mouth feel. Warm after taste. Some might think this beer is too sweet, but I’ll definitely get this beer again & again.

I'm not much of a porter person, but this is pretty good. Not as heavy as I thought it would be. Nice notes of vanilla, and definite malt sweetness. Overall good example of a vanilla porter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DoubleBubble (107) - Mescal Lakes (wherever that is), Arizona, USA - APR 28, 2007
Nice dark brown color. Light tan head. Very nice vanilla smell, that continues on in the flavor. Sweet vanilla after taste, with no lingering bitterness. Very good after dinner drink, or just something to sip on to get a very good buzz.

ksigty (107) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JUN 1, 2007
Given the ingredients, I would expect more aroma out of this beer, which is disappointing. Good appearance and the flavor is what makes the beer. Other than wine and mead, I have never tasted such a great presence of vanilla. Not overpowering either, just right. The aftertaste is almost like drinking the milk after eating a sugar cereal. Kind of weird. Overall, the uniqueness of this bear is what makes it worth having. Keep drinking it to avoid the soggy cereal aftertaste. Then have another!

grundsow (107) - Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 27, 2014
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.

Motobashi (106) - Windsor, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 21, 2014
Poured a deep amber with no real head. Some carbonation. Sweet caramel aroma. Distinct vanilla flavour. Not as much chocolate as I would have liked. Slightly slick texture. No real bitterness. Alcohol is not noticeable at all. Overall, fairly nice but nothing overly special.

Wonderful coffee and chocolate undertones. Pours deep dark brown, workable head. Vanilla finish is interesting. Worrh a try.

streve (105) - Maryland, USA - OCT 13, 2012
12oz bottle. Pour is dark brown with no head. Not really much in the aroma. I get some vanilla and a bit of roastiness. Mouth is vanilla, a bit of syrup and a hint of bitterness. Medium-to-full bodied. Not bad.
