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.

Dark brown almost black pour. To be expected. Nose is lots of oats and vanilla. Taste is typical for this style. Oats, barely and hints of vanilla. Overall a decent offering. -optemoz

Azand222 (171) - Westminster, Colorado, USA - NOV 18, 2013
Bottle poured a dark orange brown with a tan head, pretty thick. The aroma is mild, notes of vanilla and chocolate. The beer is smooth, full body with a kind of dry finish. I get vanilla, chocolate, and overall a good mix of sweet malty flavors. Pretty good.

Very sweet initially, then sour as the malt kicks in, and bitter in the finish and aftertaste, maybe even a little too much. Very good.

I thought this was going to be a bad joke, vanilla in my porter? Quite the contrary, it was a fine brew. Poured a rich black with an aroma of white chocolate that lead to well balanced porter where the addition of vanilla is niether under or overwhelming. Nor is the beer to sweet which is always a concern when unusual ingredients are added. Manages to finish smooth and even a little bitter. Perfect after dinner beer.

Bottle - Pours deep dark brown with very thin tan head that disappears rather quickly. Aroma full of vanilla and a sweet malty character. Palate is medium in body with a light oily feel. Upfront taste is like roasted coffee. Follow through is full of vanilla sweetness and seems more like flat vanilla cola than beer. Vanilla kind of goes sour in the aftertaste and ends up a tad acidic. Overall, this is an interesting twist on a standard porter and worth a try for something different.

NDbeerdrinker (166) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - OCT 4, 2008
Pours a dark brown with a thin tan head. Aroma is actually a bit unpleasant. The taste is better. Chocolate, coffee, and some cherry with an underlying vanilla flavor. A pretty enjoyable beer.

ndburns (166) - Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JUN 3, 2016
355ml bottle from The Perfect Pour. Pours a very dark brown with reddish tinges, and a tan head. Scent strongly indicates vanilla, some roast maltiness coming through. Flavor is strongly vanilla as well, with more usual stout aspects supporting. Only a little sweet, and with a dry finish. Nothing complex going on, but very drinkable.

yackery (165) - California, USA - MAY 7, 2011
Bottle pours a quick sandy head that dissolves to nothing with a fast lacing under a top-layer line. The body is a hazy, deep ruby. Aroma is roasty vanilla. Taste is mildly salty. Palate is lively but creamy. Enjoyable porter.
