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.

I drank a Breckenridge Vanilla Porter for brunch the morning after NYE 2010 in Chicago with my brother. The appearance in a clear medium dark red color with an average and frothy head. The aroma is malty, roasted, and has hints of vanilla. The taste is the same with the watery consistency known of average to below average porters. I did not dislike this beer, but would not order again.

This is a fun beer. Not pretentious, just easily approachable porter with vanilla aroma. Perfect with vanilla ice cream. Good dark malt, low hop bitterness and real vanilla aroma. Nice

Pour is a kind of reddish brown, transparent, with a finger of head that dissipates pretty quickly. Nose is sweet vanilla and a little bit of roast. Taste is heavy on the sweet vanilla, with a little bit of roasty malt in for some backbone. This just doesn’t say porter to me.

Great vanilla bean smell at pour. Sweet, almost a desert beer smell. Finishes as an average vanilla porter.

Mep3222 (1092) - East Greenbush, New York, USA - MAR 13, 2016
Solid easy drinking Porter. Slightly sweet, slight vanilla, smooth finish, nice body (full flavored still easy drinking). Slight lactose smoothness feel. Just a solid everyday Porter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I think that most of the reviews have the tone of someone more concerned with impressing beer snobs than giving an objective opinion about the beer. (I will post the same comment with every review) ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I really enjoy chocolate and/or vanilla added beers. The wife and I both enjoyed trying this one. Get the vanilla in the taste and smell. A good beer after a long day of skiing here in MN. The type of beer that is very enjoyable but only want to drink one a night.
