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.

12 oz bottle. Pours a deep ruby brown with a thin head. Aroma is vanilla creme, with egg nog, light chocolate. Very sweet flavor- some butterscotch- may be some diacetyl? Tons of vanilla flavor with cream, toffee and loads of sweetness. Slick and creamy mouthfeel. Too sweet and wierd for me.

I’m a Porter fan but I’ve never had a Vanilla Porter before so I had to give this a try. It was good wasn’t great but was drinkable or as the bottle states partakable. Nice aroma little bit coffee/cocoie smell. Nice dark brown with a mild head. Flavor was different I have to say that slight cocoie taste was there along with the smell, then there was the vanilla flavor. But I kept waiting for something else that never showed up? Hard to explain. Didn’t have the body of most of the Porters I’ve had. Not much of a finish either. Like the bottle says its partakable. Visit my blog at http://tulsafirstdraft.blogspot.com/

12oz. Pours boarding on black with a tan head. I can’t get over how much this smells and tastes like cross between a black cherry and cream soda. There was some black cherry in the nose as well as a few notions of roasted coffee. This was borderline offensive chilled, much more palatable as it warmed to room temperature. I still felt like the vanilla was more of an afterthought and was not well integrated with any sort of roasted malt that I think would have balanced out the vanilla.

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

Vanilla and chocolate in the nose of this brown pour. The dark brown is topped with some mocha colored foam. Light roasted flavor with just a touch of vanilla.

Decent porter with almost no noticeable vanilla. Toasty malt flavor which is well balanced and not too sweet. A little watery for a porter, also not creamy at all. Pretty weak and subpar overall. Not much aroma to speak of. No hops or spices at all.

12 ounce bottle poured in glass a reddish/brown. It has a sweet flavor which was plesantly drinkable but it wasn’t quite what I had expected. An after dinner beer at most.

Block (1210) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - MAY 7, 2009
Black pour with a tan head. I couldn’t detect much vanilla in the aroma or flavor. Nice chocolate and caramel flavor but nothing over the top. A decent porter.

A dark brown beer with a small head. The aroma has some vanilla as does the taste. Very basic.
