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.

On tap at the Ginger Man Fort Worth. Pleasantly surprising. It’s sweet, but not too sweet. It could stand to be a little bit creamier.

Diablokev (163) - Lakewood, Colorado, USA - NOV 5, 2014
The aroma is light malt caramel, the color is a walnut brown with a thin cream head. The taste is light with a stronger aftertaste of coffee. The beer is easy to drink, and overall not great.

yackery (162) - 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.

JuliusCaesar (162) - New Hampshire, USA - JAN 24, 2013
Good but not outstanding. Has decent aroma and flavor but is not very complex. Could be more robust.

Bottle. Dark Brown/Black in color with a nice light tan head. Strong aromatic vanilla. Full body vanilla bean flavor with a sweet mouth feel

Very dark, clear Christmas red color. Fruity aroma. Citrus, raspberry flavors. Bitter, drying palate.

jmcguire1969 (161) - Lafayette, Colorado, USA - FEB 3, 2006
12 oz. bottle. Nice toasty Vanilla notes in the aroma. Initial flavor is sweet vanilla but it’s quickly followed by a dry roasted malt flavor. I like the initial sweet flavor and the dry finish...the vanilla is not overpowering. Just right.

phildorsey (161) - Fort Carson, Colorado, USA - MAR 31, 2013
12oz Bottle. Pours black with a light frothy head that dissolves quickly. Aroma faintly reveals roasty/coffee features. Taste and palate is lively with high bitterness. Chocolate flavors dominate the taste but the roasted nuts and hints of Vanilla are missing...however, this beer is good. Try with Vanilla Ice cream...really brings out the flavors.

Pith (160) - New York, USA - APR 1, 2013
Pours very dark amber with minimal cream head. Aroma of vanilla and chocolate smells like Nesquick. MIT as smooth as aroma would indicate. Bitterish start which goes back to light chocolate. Finish vanilla bean pure and spicy. Interesting and sweet.

texasbartender (160) - Sugarland, Texas, USA - MAY 4, 2008
The beer pours a dark brown to a black with a thin brown white head. The nose is a mix of Carmel coffee and vanilla. The taste is as deep as the beer is dark it is a great mix of roasted malts and an underpinning of vanilla with a clean sweet vanilla finish.
