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.

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.

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

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.

Bottle. Pours dark with slight head. Pretty creamy and smooth though a bit thin and watery. Roasted and toasty with only slight hint of vanilla. OK but not the best vanilla porter out there.

BOTTLE: 45 degrees.. dark pour with small beige head. Definite vanilla aroma with chocolate and a hint of smoke. Interesting flavor with medium body, vanilla bean resting on the back of the tongue. Medium finish.

bottle: poured brown with a thin head. Smell was of light with vanilla. Flavor was chocolate with a slight hint vanilla. Felt kind of thin in the mouth. I was really hoping for more vanilla. Not bad..just okay....un"remarkable"

Bottle poured into 4oz sample glass. deep dark brown, with no head. Aroma was roasted malt, nuts and coffee. Flavor was Strong nut and malt with a full vanilla taste followed with a milky/creamy finish. A good thick beer. I would buy this beer.

Though this beer is called a vanilla porter the vanilla flavour is quite delicate. Not for the in experienced pallet, nor the light beer drinker. The lightness of the vanilla does dull the bitterness of most porters. All together i would say if you see this at your local beer barn and enjoy a good dark beer this would be worth your time.

garretjax (103) - Colorado, USA - MAR 2, 2008
Dark chestnut brown color, light brown fading head. Some vanilla, but more of the roasted malt is in the aroma. Full body and low carbonation. The vanilla is so overwhelming and sweet that the chocolate and nutty flavors are muted. Spicy vanilla finish that lingers too long.
