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 Brewerys Vanilla Porter. A vanilla kiss in a rich, dark sea.

Extremely dark brown color......opaque. Thick, fluffy head......mild malt aroma, with a hint of sweetness. Noticeable vanilla flavor up front, but not overpowering. Pretty smooth mouthfeel. Taste of vanilla continues in the back, balanced by notes of mellow roasted malt.

Pours very dark brown, thin head. Nothing unique about the smell. Tastes slightly like coffee. The vanilla flavor is noticeable, but not particularly strong. Would have been better if it came through more. Not a good beer to drink on its own, but I imagine it would pair perfectly with a slice of pie.

Im a Porter fan but Ive never had a Vanilla Porter before so I had to give this a try. It was good wasnt great but was drinkable or as the bottle states partakable. Nice aroma little bit coffee/cocoie smell. Nice dark brown with a mild head. Flavor was different I have to say that slight cocoie taste was there along with the smell, then there was the vanilla flavor. But I kept waiting for something else that never showed up? Hard to explain. Didnt have the body of most of the Porters Ive had. Not much of a finish either. Like the bottle says its partakable. Visit my blog at http://tulsafirstdraft.blogspot.com/

Deep, dark brown pour. Aroma of roasted malts, vanilla, with a touch of light fruity hops. Watery body. Mildly roasted coffee, light vanilla, somewhat bitter/sweet flavors. Finishes aggressive and a little oversweet. Eh, ok.

crowderm (382) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 12, 2008
Pours a thin dark brown, with a quickly dying tan head. Has a nice vanilla/malt aroma. Smells and tastes kind of like a vanilla coke. Pretty thin, but smooth mouthfeel. A slightly pungent flavor detracts from the overall experience. Pretty decent brew though.

oldpainless (34) - fort mill, South Carolina, USA - MAY 12, 2008
Not as heavy as your average porter but none the less quite a good (dessert) beer. A bit heavy vanilla finish, almost a cola like character. Could not drink to many but would be great w/ any choc dessert or coconut pie.

Decent solid porter, however lacks in the Vanilla taste which is what i was expecting. At the price of this at my local gas station (9.50) i probably wont buy again over better porters ive had at a much more reasonable price, but i was glad to have tasted it. breckenridge continutes to be a decently solid brewery

BelgianBeerGal (3934) - Panama City, Florida, USA - MAY 8, 2008
Bottled. Pours a nice mahogany brown with some ruby highlights. Small tan film on top and not much lacing. Mild aroma of coffee, toasted malt and vanilla. Decent flavour, thin mouthfeel, maybe a little "chemically" tasting with the vanilla.

bigtaster (921) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - MAY 5, 2008
Pours black with red-brown hues and a small tan head, some lacing. Weird warm malty aroma with banana, vanilla. Quick hit of alcohol even though it is only 4.7% then a quickly receding flavor of smoke, vanilla and, caramel. Leaves a undesired aftertaste hindering my yearning to keep drinking. Altogether not bad.

Sparky (2244) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - MAY 5, 2008
Bottle. Poured a deep clear black with almost no head, sans for a small layer of film on top. Nose is mild coffee, mild chocolate, mild malt and just a hint of vanilla, though you really have to search. Palate is much the same mild everything - though the vanilla comes through nicely in the finish, especially as it warms. Nice creamy mouth feel with ok lacing. A decent niche porter.
