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.

Dark ruby, almost opaque color, small beige head. Sticky aroma of cocoa and some vanilla. Medium-bodied. Flavor has cocoa and vanilla too. A bit like essance flavors. Nutty.

Oakes (12167) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 11, 2007
Medium brown colour. Fairly heavy vanilla nose...but not exactly evoking the ring-tailed lemurs of Madagascar. There’s some light chocolate notes in there as well. Heavy vanilla on the palate, with the slight toastiness of a thinnish porter. Not all that cohesive, either, unfortunately.

Very dark brown with a small off-white head. Caramel and molasses in the aroma. Cloying sweet with way too much vanilla flavour.

bhensonb (10699) - Woodland, California, USA - DEC 31, 2009
Bottle from Archer Liquors. Pours dark brown with a decent light tan head. Aroma of dark toast, but not sure about vanilla. Medium body with sharp, creamy carbonation. Now I’m sure about the vanilla. Pretty present. An interesting variant. Not a style of porter I would chase after.

On tap @ Breckenridge @ The Ballpark. Sweet vanilla and cream on the nose. Mild roast, milk chocolate, and chocolate malt. Hints of coffee. Flavor is quite sweet. Lots of vanilla, chocolate malt, and milk chocolate. Creamy. Roasted malt, some coffee, and a hint of fruit on the finish.

Leighton (10466) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 8, 2011
Bottle at home in NH, shared with Charlie. Pours brown with a foamy, light tan head. Slight roast and mild chocolate in the aroma, mild vanilla fo sho. Light to medium sweet flavor, heavy and almost sharp vanilla, rich bread. Medium bodied with average, smooth carbonation. Lightly sweet finish, sharp malts and vanilla, mild roast. The vanilla is too sharp overall, and the beer could stand to be a little sweeter (which might alleviate some of the abrasive vanilla). Otherwise, pretty decent stuff.
