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.

From the bottle, pours black with a thin off white head. Chocolatey birchy aroma. Taste is thin, smooth chocolate, fades to a roasty bitterness, mellowing as it warms. Vanilla notes too, this is a pretty good beer.

I like the body on this porter. The aroma is toasty and vanilla, and the taste is also toasty with a great smooth body and leaves a good mouth feel but still light like a porter.

Bottled at Devil’s Den - a great porter. Nice color and flavor - exactly what a good porter tastes like - very nice!

A nice mellow porter with a sweet roundness. Subtle notes... Blah blah blah. Words ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BennyBinion (18) - Canyon, Texas, USA - MAR 31, 2014
Pours black with a nice off white head. Has hints of coffee and chocolate. A very smooth and creamy taste with notes of vanilla that make this one of my favorite porters.

Bottle, draft. Not sure how I missed this one. Black pour with tan head. Vanilla dominated the aroma. Flavor is vanilla forward, some light roasted tones and chocolate hints follow.

canary dog (649) - Rutland, Vermont, USA - MAR 30, 2014
I’m not sure how to rate this. I tried this on tap at a local pub and it was served cold, as if it were a lager. Frustrating. I really didn’t have time to let it warm to room temperature. It was an easy going and smooth porter. I noticed very faint amounts of vanilla in the nose and finish.

ludhaber (62) - Massachusetts, USA - MAR 28, 2014
The aroma is weak but some notes of roasted malt are perceptible. The texture is sweet and buttery. The taste of the beer is well balanced and the vanilla adds a delicious spice to the flavor. Well done.

Dark Brown, almost like a stout, nice nut and vanilla flavors; a little bitter on the finish. - March Madness 2014
