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.

FatPhil (12722) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - AUG 12, 2015
355ml bottle (Beertopia, Nebraska) - thanks Frank!
Deep red, brief beige head settles to patchy scum. Sweetish slightly chocolatey roasty aroma, some dark berry aspect. Fairly simple palate, a little watery, smooth from sweetness. Pleasant dryish roasty taste, cheap chocolate, some vanilla. Finish a little burnt. A bit dull, and very lifeless. Kinda adequate, but very simple.

BeerandBlues2 (11661) - Escondido, California, USA - APR 1, 2006
Bottle. Pours dark brown with a small mostly dissipating tan foamy head. Aroma is dark roasted chocolate and caramel malt (toast) and leathery yeast with a vanilla nose. Vanilla and dark malt medium sweet flavor that transcends into a medium bitter and acidic drying spicy toasted caramel malt finish. Dark bodied and fizzy-spicy palate.

Drake (11469) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - APR 21, 2008
UPDATED: JUL 13, 2008 Someone told me I should try this, so I am. Bottle from Westpark Wine and Beer in Richmond. Pours dark brown to black iwht a medium head, good lacing and low retention. Aroma of leather, tobacco and caramel. Vanilla is barely noticeable at first in the taste, but grows on you. Also, a taste of caramel and tobacco. Medium body. Astringent. 6/4/6/3/12/3.1

Rerate 7/13/08. Bottle from Whole Foods Market Charlottesville. Dark brown pour with excellent head retention and lacing. Roasted malt aroma with hints of vanilla. Taste is roasted malt, vanilla and a tart fruitiness. Full bodied. Must have gotten a less than stellar bottle before, because this really hits the spot. 6/4/8/4/14/3.6
