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.

33 cl bottle, Fargo. Cola like appearance, with a head that lasts a bit longer. Medium malt aroma, Quite sweet, massive vanilla hit, then a sweet/bitter finished mingled with the vanilla. Not really my style but certainly worth a taste.

Where is the vanilla? Oh, there it is upon sampling this fine brew. Flavor is spectacular but leaves a sour aftertaste that I easily overcome.

Pours reddish brown with small off white head. Aroma has light pine smell along with some distinct sweetness. The flavor is quiet sweet with definate vanilla but little else. The taste quickly disapears and the body is quite light.

zombywoof (462) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - JAN 2, 2008
Minimal light tan head and lacing-dark brown color. Aroma seems a little mild-a little coffee and molasses with a sort of cellar dankness. Flavor is pretty good-not too sweet. Body seems a little thin....also some vanilla.

This beer looks pretty good. Has a solid off-white head, with a good looking black color. The head doesn’t fade away fast, which is good. The flavor is not what I expected. Everything is very subtle. I smell the vanilla a lot, but I wish I could say that for the taste. The vanilla is not as crisp as I thought it would be. I was expecting more of an obvious vanilla flavor, but that is not the case. The vanilla and the malt/coffee flavor are very mild. The beer has a decent palate. This is a decent palate but the malts and the vanilla and the coffee, all seem very muted. In reading the description this beer leans more towards nutty for me than it does coffee. Decent brew.

Dont judge a beer by its first sip! I saw this Vanilla Porter brewed by Breckenridge on the shelf and thought "damn that sounds good". Then I took the first sip and thought "this sucks". Good thing for my dedication to beer drinking, because after the third or fourth sip of this beer, the flavor completly opens up. Strangely the beer and no obvious aroma. The palate is so velvety smooth as it feels like a chocolate vanilla shake running down your throat. The taste the perfect blend not too overwhelming on the vanilla.

Nice aroma and a decent look to it, not alot of foam. It was refreshing but even though they say that they use real vanilla bean it kind of has a finish of vanilla extract to it.

durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - NOV 17, 2008
Bottle from Dain’s in Durham. Deep brown pour, off white head. All the normal porter notes-- roasted malts, lactose, chocolate-- but with a shit ton of sweet vanilla. If you want a sweet beer, go for it. Not my thing. Glad my wife ordered it so I could taste it, but would not want more than a sip. Seems to accomplish what it’s going for, though.

RIXbeer (102) - USA - NOV 28, 2008
Pours almost complete black with a tiny bit of light coming through. Almost no head. Overpowering vanilla with hints of chocolate and some roasted odors. This is a smooth porter with a large overtone of vanilla. A good pick up for someone not really into darker beers. Enough porter flavors without being to heavy or filling. Hint of burnt malt or roasted malt. Lingering vanilla in the aftertaste. Medium bodied with a lot of punch behind the flavors. I don’t know if you can have more than one. Its either the flavor or the heaviness or a combination of both. But just 1 thanks.

Pours dark brown with a wispy, quickly disappearing foam. Aroma of vanilla and Rollo’s. It has a full mouthfeel that lends itself nicely to the chocolatey vanilla flavor.
