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.

Bottle at the Flying Saucer in Fort Worth, TX. First ever Vanilla Porter and I loved it. Vanilla after taste wasn’t too strong, just right. Delightful beer.

Dark brown with beige head. Medium smoky roasted malt aroma. The vanilla is subtle. Roasted malt, semi-sweet chocolate flavor with a bit more bitterness than I anticipated (this is actually for the best). The vanilla hits in the middle-end of the taste and lingers. Can see how it could be a bit cloying, but I liked it. Medium body. Overall, an average porter, but the vanilla adds an interesting dimension. Not an everyday beer but for the right occasion, pretty decent.

12 oz poured into pint glass. Appears dark brown with finger of off white head. Smells of chocolate and caramel, no vanilla, roast coffee. Tastes of caramel coffee with a hint of sweet and a bit of vanilla. The palate is thin and smooth. Not bad! I just wish for a more vanilla flavor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Deep rich color - almost velvety in apperance with a fine tight head. Aroma is of malt with vanilla and pine. Flavor is smooth and well balanced. A very enjoyable porter (will definitely get again in the future).

Strong vanilla taste on the front end, totally lacking the kind of complexity you would associate with a good porter. It is drinkable, however. I wouldn’t turn it down, but I definitely won’t seek it out.

12 ounce bottle poured in glass a reddish/brown. It has a sweet flavor which was plesantly drinkable but it wasn’t quite what I had expected. An after dinner beer at most.

Very smooth and easy drinking. Chocolate up front, vanilla on the back end. Thinner than expected. Barely a Porter, more like a Brown. Decent beer. I’d drink it again.

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.

ChrisFields (70) - Ashtabula, Ohio, USA - AUG 25, 2013
USA bottle Appearance- Pours deep coffee brown with almost no head. Tiny ring of white bubble around the edges. Aroma- Vanilla, toffee and malt. Pleasant and mild. Taste- Very sweet with heavy vanilla bean and malted chocolate. Palate- Thin bodied and lightly carbonated. Overall- Smooth and sweet. A bit cloying as it is far too sweet for my taste. Definitely a unique flavor but the vanilla is overbearing.
