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 pour with white head. Vanilla on the nose, with sweet and roasted malts. Taste is strong roasted malts, something I enjoy. The vanilla is also tasted. Very good porter.

There are many vanilla porters out there with varying degrees of deliciousness. This BB vanilla porter is one of the best. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

KansaiBeerLvrs (4186) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAY 16, 2016
Tasting flight at the taproom in Denver. Cola black with a light beige head. The aroma is soft pats, vanilla and chocolate. Nice. Smooth luscious body which is probably all down to the Nitro. The taste is sugary sweet vanilla that seems like extract plus chewey oat like malt character. Alright but I can’t believe the best beer I had here was a boring amber ale. These guys brew macro-style craft...

This is a fun beer. Not pretentious, just easily approachable porter with vanilla aroma. Perfect with vanilla ice cream. Good dark malt, low hop bitterness and real vanilla aroma. Nice

Gespuccian (82) - Wisconsin, USA - MAR 23, 2016
Pour is a kind of reddish brown, transparent, with a finger of head that dissipates pretty quickly. Nose is sweet vanilla and a little bit of roast. Taste is heavy on the sweet vanilla, with a little bit of roasty malt in for some backbone. This just doesn’t say porter to me.

Great vanilla bean smell at pour. Sweet, almost a desert beer smell. Finishes as an average vanilla porter.
