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 brown-color with a frothy head. Vanilla rich chocolate notes in the aroma. Creamy rich flavor. Has a light oily roasted character. I think the vanilla overtakes the other characteristics of a porter, more roasted, malts and chocolate coffee notes. A nice drinkable beer.

beerchugger (708) - North Canton, Ohio, USA - JUN 25, 2009
Pours a very dark brown color with a decent tan head that never left. THere were sheets of lace left behind from the head making this a very attractive beer. Smells of raosted malt are most noticeable. There are also hints of sweet vanilla and a tad chocolate. The flavor is mostly the same, but not very outstandish. Almost cloyingly sweet from the overload of vanilla. It has a rather thin mouthfeel.

pours a very deep brown color...not quite black...with a fairly thin light tan head...poor retention. aroma is slightly nutty and roasty with a hint of molasses with faint vanilla and alcohol aromas. flavor has caramel and vanilla with some nuttiness...tastes a bit like vanilla extract smells. slightly creamy mouthfeel with a nutty vanilla finish.

Tastes like a very neutral dark ale with a bit of vanilla extract. It doesn’t taste bad, but it leaves a lot to be desired.

I drank a Breckenridge Vanilla Porter for brunch the morning after NYE 2010 in Chicago with my brother. The appearance in a clear medium dark red color with an average and frothy head. The aroma is malty, roasted, and has hints of vanilla. The taste is the same with the watery consistency known of average to below average porters. I did not dislike this beer, but would not order again.

Poured like water, dark and very carbonated. Huge head. Smell was light with a little hint of vanilla. First sip blanketed my mouth with vanilla and alcohol. Too much for me. Burnt, coffee bitterness after taste. The after taste also lingers in your mouth a little bit.

Very little if any aroma,really have to search for it,finally snagged a grain and vanilla molecule or two,WOW,you don’t have to search for the vanilla in the taste,hits you like a hammerpretty much overwhelming everything at firsta little malt sweetness and roastiness sneaks in eventually. This is your porter if your into vanilla

biz82 (1328) - austin, Texas, USA - MAY 1, 2006
Deep dark brown, almost black. Thin tan head. Appetizing chocolate cake aroma, with an emphasis on vanilla. Big vanilla flavor and quite sweet. Nice body but rather cloying. Quite saccharine in finish. If it was drier and the vanilla was toned down I would like it better. Nice looking 19th century elixir label.

Bottle - beautiful vanilla aroma - one of my favorite flavors and aromas. A touch of chocolate is also in the nose. Fairly typical porter appearance - black/brown body with a beige head. As I said, I love vanilla, but I’m not sure about this beer yet. It has a huge vanilla taste all the way through the swallow. Could use more chocolate to balance. It is really just too sweet.

bottle. Aroma: Roasted malt, toffee, nuts, and vanilla. Was hoping for a bigger vanilla punch. Appearance: Medium brown in color with soft red highlights. Very light tan head was nice and creamy looking with good retention. Fair lacing. Flavor: Mild roast malt, toffee and nuts, a touch of anise, and vanilla. Again, I was hoping for more vanilla. It’s there, but doesn’t shine through the way I would have liked. Also, the vanilla tastes like an extract not a real vanilla bean flavor. Palate: Medium-light bodied and watery. Moderate carbonation. Overall: Disappointing. Was expecting the vanilla to shine here. It didn’t, and unfortunatly nothing else in the beer did either.
