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.

Pours dark brown with a small tan head. The aroma is strongly of vanilla beans. There is a faint alcohol smell underneath the vanilla. There is no hop smell present at all. Tastes of vanilla beans and alcohol. Smooth and malty, no hops at all. Decently sweet and not bitter. Full-bodied with a smooth texture and mild carbonation. Finishes with a tingle and lasts decently long.

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!

Aroma: Very sweet smelling. Strong hints of vanilla. Appearance: thin line of creamy head off of pour, solid coffee color but still able to see through the glass. Taste: Great taste. Not too overpowering in the coffee or the vanilla. Excellent balance of flavors. Palate: Creamy mouth feel, flavors on the tip and back of the tongue. Overall: Excellent beer. I would definitely seek this one out again for a stout/porter night.

Amazingly smooth and malty. This is a subtle, complex beer with a fantastic finish. Other reviewers can’t decide if the vanilla is too strong or too weak. Well I say it’s just right. Coffee malt is more apparent than vanilla bean. Trust me, this is a porter you can enjoy all night.

Medium brown in color with little head. Mild aroma does not prepare you for the incredibly delicious flavor. There is a rich vanilla flavor with a nice malty base. There is a light smokey flavor that enhances the flavor. It has a medium-light body with soft carbonation. This beer could almost be called dessert.

Breckenridge Vanilla Porter is a dim, dark brown ale with a khaki head that quickly fades to a bubbly ring. The aroma is brimming with chocolate and roast. There is a slight hint of coffee in the nose and the vanilla seems to manifest itself almost as oak. It’s medium bodied, smooth and sudsy. The finish is dry and clean. It tastes much like it smells, but stronger, with lots of chocolate and roast. There’s a little coffee in there too. The vanilla is not prominent and comes off as oak. There’s not really any noticeable bitterness or sweetness. There’s a slight, roasty aftertaste. This is smooth, tasty and easy to drink.

This is a great porter. Lots of roasted malt character with hints of chocolate and coffee. And then there comes the vanilla bean. It really adds a nice complex note to this brew. The vanilla flavor is very present on the palate as well. Finishes rich and long with the vanilla lingering. Solid porter and a very unique brew. well done.
