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.

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.

Bottle- Deep dark color. Lovely malt smell with that hint of vanilla. First taste is of dark chocolate which rolls quickly to the back of the mouth. There it leaves some of the sweetness and gives a nice vanilla snap. All in all a lighter porter with the vanilla.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
