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.

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.

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.

HogTownHarry (6199) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - JUN 18, 2006
Bottle (12oz). Shared with GregClow, my bottle. Deep ruby with a small tan foamy-rocky head. Smells like vanilla bean in alcohol, some sweet roast malt and a wee bit of perfumy hops. Taste of vanilla, vanilla extract, roast nutty malt (hint of cocoa) some slightly harsh bitterness on the finish. This is pretty syrupy - sort of like fountain soda syrup, a long sweet sticky finish. Way too much cloying vanilla and not much else here.

Seemed like a good idea at first. First few sips were good. Flavor got worse the more I drank. Vanilla seems off, too artificial tasting.

Dark and porter-looking in the glass. Aromas are a bit of stale grains, also very natural smelling and tasting vanilla. Palate is very dry with a lot of roasted flavors, not so much chocolate or coffee. I had high hops for a creamy vanilla porter, but this brew sadly did not live up to expectations.

Not a great brew, but a good one to try. Hints of Chocolate and Coffee but dominataly vanilla flavored beer. Very dark in color with a tan head.

UPDATED: MAY 20, 2009 Bottle. Aroma and taste are creamy vanilla. Vanilla is not overpowering, nicely blended in with the beer character. Overall, a very interesting drink, though I am not sure when I would have it again. If you like vanilla, try this one.

Dissapointing, expected more vaniila flavor. Another average Breckenridge.
