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.

A creamy and smooth porter. Almost a dessert beer. The vanilla adds a sweetness to it but it’s hard to drink more than one.

Disappointing. I’m a big fan of the porter variety, but this was too weak to be a porter and had far too many hops for my taste. There was a decent bit of vanilla and a good bit of malt, but the palate was very thin, and it was missing the gut-warming feeling that should be associated with a porter.

HIGHB4LL (823) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - DEC 28, 2013
12 oz. bottle. Appearance: butterscotch, slight and light brown head, clear, dark red-brown color, average lacing. Aroma: chocolate, vanilla, caramel, roast, coffee, hazelnut, Palate: medium-full body, soft carbonation, short sweet finish, creamy texture. Taste: sweet the entire time with the slightest bitterness at the end. Overall, this beer has a nice taste to it, but really is not balanced and is overly sweet after only a few sips; just not enough hops for me.

Eh. Dark brown pour. Roasted malts, nuttiness, sweetness in the aroma. Taste is pretty sweet upfront.Vanilla is in there, but subtle and almost sour/tangy tasting. Bitter finish. Creamy mouthfeel over all.

Terminus (3328) - Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA - APR 10, 2006
bottle-mahogony red with a very small beige head. looks thin and light to be a porter really. big vanilla bean, char and chocolate notes emit from my glass. flavors are abundantly vanilla and taste somewhat artificial. body is very weak, lacking any real substance. very one dimensional and weak. Try again Breckenridge.

Bottle, thanks to the guy at the liquor stop because he felt bad that they were out of Arrogent Bastard. Aroma of vanilla, minerals, touch of chocolate and more minerals...not very promising. Dark brown in color with an off-white head. Chocolaty flavor with a touch of roasted malt and lots of vanilla...not much else. Medium-full body, fairly creamy.

jasonp (1556) - Ashburn, Virginia, USA - MAY 28, 2006
Bottle courtesy of artusory. Clear brown with a small beige head. Artificial vanilla aroma. Caramel, a little roastiness, vanilla extract. Moderately sweet, light bitterness. Medium bodied, subtle carbonation. Drinkable, but starts to taste like vanilla Coke after a little while.

antzman (315) - Clarksville, Indiana, USA - MAY 30, 2006
Bottle. Pours a dark brown with a tan head. The aroma is strong with vanilla, with some malty undertones. The taste is full of vanilla with a weak porter underneath. Not a very complex porter, and not a very good beer.
