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.

The beer pours a dark brown to a black with a thin brown white head. The nose is a mix of Carmel coffee and vanilla. The taste is as deep as the beer is dark it is a great mix of roasted malts and an underpinning of vanilla with a clean sweet vanilla finish.

scooterbub (1047) - Lander, Wyoming, USA - MAY 4, 2008
Bottle. Pours a dark red-brown with a thin, creamy, tan head. Taste is of caramel, roasted malt and vanilla. The aroma is the same, except the vanilla really shines through. Pretty easy to drink as it is smooth, but it was at its best when it was ice cold. Overall, this is not a bad seasonal brew, but for the money Id rather go with something else.

SirSlarty (68) - Reading, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 2, 2008
Pours a cloudy darkish brown with a hint of red, I suppose you can call that amber. Smells smooth and slightly sour.Tastes just like it, too! Nice vanilla, though subtle. Decent malty flavor. For some reason, I can really taste the alcohol. Good thing it has low content.

gabbama (203) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - MAY 1, 2008
Aroma is not very strong but is dominated by vanilla with a good chocolate malt background. Vanilla is the first flavor with the chocolate and toffee malt coming through slightly later. Finish is all vanilla with a nice aftertaste.

kpresley77 (147) - Jackson, Georgia, USA - APR 29, 2008
Bottle pours dark amber/brown color with vanilla and malt aroma. Taste starts vanilla then sweet toffee and vanilla finish. Wish the vanilla wasnt the dominant flavor.

Suttree (6191) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - APR 28, 2008
Black, thin tan head. Vanilla fudgey aroma, as one might expect. Flavor is like an Oreo cookie in a glass - nice vanilla flavors mix with chocolatey malts. If anything, it verges on being a bit too sweet. Enjoyable, though. Sampled at the Flying Saucer, Raleigh.

BOLTZ7555 (3018) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - APR 27, 2008
Can definitely taste the sweet, familiar vanilla coming through. Same color and thickness of pure vanilla extract. Wish the other flavors were more dominant. One dimensional.

Bottled. A deep red beer with a thin beige head. The aroma is sweet malty with notes of caramel and coffee. The flavor is sweet mlaty with notes of vanilla, coffee, and roasted malt.

phishpond417 (2088) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - APR 22, 2008
Another nice beer from Breckenridge. Pours a deep dark brown colour with a full vanilla head. Nutty, roasted malts, cinnamon and vanilla in the aroma. Mouthfeel is genuinely creamy, well balanced. Taste is enticing, sweet, not too sweet- vanilla, hints of coffee, toffee and butterscotch.
