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 is much sweeter than I expected - the vanilla really comes through. It has very little aroma or head, but a great bitingly sweet flavor.

Ok to get the flavor to really peak don't drink it so cold! I made that amateur mistake! All I have to say it reminds me of an A&W cream soda ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A beautiful porter. Just the right blend of vanilla and perhaps a hint of chocolate make this the perfect post-skiing beverage.

Bottle at the Flying Saucer in Fort Worth, TX. First ever Vanilla Porter and I loved it. Vanilla after taste wasn’t too strong, just right. Delightful beer.

Wow, and drark thick black with no head. Better appearence then the stouts. Aroma was vinallia. The flavor was vinalla with some malty aftertaste. Sort of a beer float without hte ice cream. The winner of the taster.

Breckenridge Vanilla Porter surprised me and quite a few others. It poured a dark black colored body with a small head. The aroma was pleasant with a note of vanilla, malts, etc. The taste was a goldmine. It was a blend of coffee/chocolate from the roasted malts mixed prefectly with the vanilla beans. WOW! I’m ordering more of this porter

Just received this in store, decided to take a 6 pack home and try it out. This beer is nice and dark with a thin beige/tan head. I could definitely smell the vanilla, and not much else. The vanilla was more pronounced in the aroma than in the taste. Vanilla was apparent, but traditional porter flavors broke through as well. I disagree on the overpowered vanilla taste, I found it to be a perfect amount. Creamy mouth feel and a nice smooth finish round out this wonderful beer.
