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.

had at the gingerman in austin , giggity giggity....this beer was made out side the box..STRANGE smell..beutiful look...odd yet strangly delicous, but it goes so down hill after that, i rarely RARELY toss a beer but i had to walk away from this beer, like a thicker flatter sweeter vanilla coke, but if you really like vanilla (which i really thought i did) you might might like it..?

Muddy brown body with a wispy, light tan head. The aroma is molases, vanilla, some cocoa. the flavor is fake vanilla extract, some toffee, overly sweet. Medium body with soft carbonation.

Great coloration with a slight red tinge. Nose is roast with slight vanillia. Mouth is roasted coconut and walnut shells. Stong medicinal ash and lik-a-stick (vanillia candy). Tounge is oily, with a missmatched drying quality. Much like a campfire marshmallow that is burnt and covered in wood ash, left overnight, and eaten with the morning coffee, while a bear mauls your face.

Aroma is vanilla coke, bit of butterscotch and hazelnut. Body is black with ruby tinge, no real head on it. Taste is mildly sweet, with a bit of hazelnut, seems more like a brown then a porter because of the wateriness of it.

If you really like vanilla, then this is the beer for you. I found the aroma and flvor a bit distracting, though, and that’s the reason for my lower score. If the vanilla were used as a mellowing agent only, as opposed to taking center stage, then I’m sure I would have enjoyed this much more. Also, the body was a bit too thin for this style.

This beer pours black with little to no head. This beer is quite strong on the vanilla. A little to strong if you ask me! I can taste the roasted coffee and chocolate in this thing but it gets overpowered by the vanilla... This would have been a much better beer had the vanilla not overtaken the chocolate and coffee’s. I still like it though. Cheers!

Tap at Kahootz: Dark brown with no head. It doesn’t have many of the familiar characteristics associated with porters like the charcoal, deep roasted flavor. This was akin to having a vanilla coke. It leaves an extemely sweet, sugary flavor in your mouth. In my opinion, it isn’t robust enough to be called a porter.

Draft. No head or any lacing. Aroma was vanilla, roast and tiny hint of toffee. Taste was a little roast, toffe/caramel (maybe hints of dark fruit) turning mainly to semisweet vanilla. Finishes dry light bitter with some mineral (soy) and dark malt astringent. mouth is fizzy and thin.

Bottle. Poured ruby and dark brown with an almost one finger head that was off-white to tan in color. The faintest trace of lacing hung around my pint glass. Vanilla does indeed smack you in the face when you get deep whiff of this brew, but it’s a vanilla that reminded me of Vanilla Pepsi, not the vanilla my Mom used when making chocolate chip cookies. A bit of roasted malt is noted too. The flavor reminded me still of a can of Vanilla Pepsi. Too artificial. The flavor of roasted malt crept through, but not enough to put down the evil beast that is artificial-vanilla. On the watery side in terms of mouthfeel. Silly.

(bonus brew from ughsmash)dark brown with an off-white head that fades fast.aroma is loaded with syrupy vanilla,and is then followed with brownies,and chocolate cake.a little over the top on the sweetness if ya ask me.flavor is much of the same with the vanilla really dominating.as with the aroma,the sweetness in the flavor is just to much.
