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.

This was my very first try at a vanilla porter, and i throughly enjoyed it. The scent of vanilla is prominent in the first smell. The pour is dark brown with a thin tan head. The taste is strong vanilla, with a hint of chocolate with roasted malts.

translucent reddish mahogany with a thin but persistent beige head: full body with medium-high carbonation.

aroma: baked grains, bran muffins, burnt sugars, and silage.

taste: lots of vanilla, sweet malt, yellow cake, chocolate malt.

certainly not the first vanilla beer i’ve had, but this is unique and complex and intriguing. yes, it’s a dessert beer, but a great one.

WOW! Best porter I have ever had! Aroma was of vanilla and coffee. Flavor was of course vanilla, malty, coffeeish, with a hint of chocolate and maybe even some fruit... You know, maybe this is one of the best BEERS I have had period.

This delicious porter pours perfectly rich dark chocolate in appearance with a beautiful mocha head. Tne aroma of vanilla is fulfilled at the end of the palate because at first you taste the flavor of sweet maltiness. The balance of these flavors is so smooth on the palate for a porter. I love it.

UPDATED: APR 1, 2011 Smells like burnt vanilla extract, looks like candy, tastes like sour milk. Perfect. EDIT: New label, same great taste.

Good smelling beer of honey and vanilla. Very smooth and clean on the palate. Flavors are sweet and smooth. Very good beer, even Julie would drink this dark ale. Buy again.

I wasn't sure what I was getting into. Then I poured it into my glass and was in heaven. Dark, tasty and the aroma of vanilla coffee. Beautiful small bubbles on top. Deep black color. Easy on the way down. One of my favorites ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Breckenridge’s Vanilla Porter, a true taste of excellence: from the draw to the final drop, this Porter is a true testament of craft beers. The initial aroma is that of a warming feel as the scents of caramel and malts seductively dance under your nose. The frothy head atop of the opaque body captures the eye. The initial bitterness associated with a Porter is complimented by the semi-sweet vanilla finish. One of my all-time favorites!
