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.

UPDATED: MAR 1, 2008 Pours black with big rich off white creamy head. Aroma is bad. It smells cheap and macro. Very strong vanilla in nose and taste. Pretty smooth taste. Pretty good texture with slight bitterness. Bittersweet mouth feel that starts sweet, but the burnt bitterness lingers (like the cloying sweetness). The balance and cohesion isn’t perfect, but not bad overall. My favorite part of it is the vanilla experiment.

Dark brown color, slightly tan and quickly dissipating head - Aroma: roasted malt, discreet aroma of coffee, chocolate and toffee. Vanilla aroma becomes prominent towards the otherwise a bit watery finish - Taste is medium sweet and slightly bitter - Medium to full body, creamy and soft mouthfeel, rather soft carbonation.

This beer has a very nice/ coffee vanilla smell as well as taste that is apparent immediately. Dark appearance with no head to speak. Not as thick as I expected, roasted nut aftertaste Overall, a good beer. I would get this again

maugus4ever (123) - Winston-Salem, North Carolina, USA - APR 5, 2009
Pours dark brown with a small tan head and decent lacing. Light in taste and mouthfeel, but still tasty. Very subtle vanilla flavor (to the point that I was disappointed since it is a vanilla porter). Not a bad beer, but nothing to write home about.

lweiberg (122) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - MAR 10, 2008
Very malty and fleeting, somewhat thin and definitely low ABV. It doesn’t go wrong at any point, and I really didn’t taste too much vanilla, but it’s a decent beer, although I wouldn’t pay more than $6 for a sixer.

Vanilla is rather evident here, perhaps some chocolate, though not much else. Very smooth, a little sweet.

nogov (121) - Texas, USA - AUG 7, 2011
Pours black with creamy head that fades quickly. Aroma is rich coffee, chocolate, and malt. Taste is also coffee and chocolate with vanilla midsection. Very fine carbonation. All in all a good stout. Glad to see only 4.7ABV, as any burn would distract from the creamy nature of this style.

steeleliver (121) - Minnesota, USA - APR 2, 2012
Rich dark brown color with golden hues around the edges as viewed through the light. Aroma was very faint and not distinctive, as one would expect with the vanilla. The vanilla is evident in the taste, yielding a bit sweeter porter.

O.K., I don’t like vanilla in my beer, so what was I expecting? Poured like black rubies with a decent head and good lacing. Medium bodied with nutty notes, but the vanilla just runs all over everything. Behind that aggresive bean is a decent porter, I’m sure.
