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 (13867) - 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.

Bottle. Poured black color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly diminished with good lacing. Moderate roasted sweet malt aroma. Medium body with a creamy texture. Medium sweet flavor with a light sweet finish of short duration. My expectations were not met.

Christian (12884) - Odense, DENMARK - OCT 10, 2008
Very dark brown with a small off-white head. Caramel and molasses in the aroma. Cloying sweet with way too much vanilla flavour.

Tap at Mellow Mushroom, Charleston. It pours darkest brown with a small beige head. The nose is roasted malt, earth, caramel, light vanilla and a hint of malt vinegar. The taste is rich roasted, toast, ashy, earth, wood, salted caramel, burnt notes and liquorice with a dry, roasty finish. Run of the mill porter. So-so.

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.
