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

Cola colored pour into a pint glass. Cola dark but clear. Tan head, foamy dotted throughout with coarser bubbles. Nice color, would like a denser head-but that’s just me being picky. Smells kind of like chocolate candy. Taste rolls chocolate to coffee to sumatra coffee acidic on into a vanilla finish... I like the pipeline/kona coffee porter better. Not sure I like the mouthfeel-- but it might not be the I’m feeling. Overall a sourness and heaviness I’m not liking much. Could be this bottle. Might give it another try in a couple of months.

UPDATED: NOV 8, 2010 Had a few bottles of this a couple moths after posting it June 2010: This is a mild porter w/ a hint of vanilla. It looks good enough, black and color w/ a decent white head, but is not really the most flavorful thing in the world. Nose is very mild, just a touch or roast. There is a bit more assertiveness as far as flavor is concerned. It’s roasty, a bit chocolaty w/ a hint of vanilla, which is thankfully rather understated. The texture is a bit watery but the carbonation does have a nice prickle to it. If a vanilla porter sounds good to you, you’ll probably like this but it is hardly a memorable drinking experience.

Black with tan head. Vanilla aroma, medium thick mouth feel. Creamy vanilla taste, the vanilla is almost overwhelming. To sweet for me. This beer is like drinking milk with vanilla extract in it.

The aroma is pure vanilla, smells fantastic. However, when it gets down to the taste, that’s also nothing but vanilla. Flavor is dominated by the vanilla character, making it a bit too much, and leaving a muddled, dull flavor experience. Medium mouthfeel, not that easy to drink. Overall, pretty bland and very disappointing.

Strong vanilla, relatively watery after that. Not bad, just needs to be more robust.

dumontn (529) - CHICAGO, Illinois, USA - NOV 2, 2011
Pours clear dark brown with khaki head and good retention. Aroma is dark chocolate, coffee, vanilla. Taste is vanilla forward with a chocolate body and a vanilla, nut, and coffee finish. sort of an odd corny taste. Body is medium, below avg carb, average mouthfeel, strange nutty finish. Overall, this doesn’t quite come together. More chocolate, less nuts in my opinion.

UPDATED: MAR 24, 2012 Draft at the beer store. Aroma of vanilla, and some vanilla bean taste with a tad of chocolate. Not much going on with this. Not what I expected from a porter. had another bottle from craft beer outlet. This is pretty good, I really like vanilla.
