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.

BOLTZ7555 (3021) - 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.

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.

Drake (13176) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - APR 21, 2008
UPDATED: JUL 13, 2008 Someone told me I should try this, so I am. Bottle from Westpark Wine and Beer in Richmond. Pours dark brown to black iwht a medium head, good lacing and low retention. Aroma of leather, tobacco and caramel. Vanilla is barely noticeable at first in the taste, but grows on you. Also, a taste of caramel and tobacco. Medium body. Astringent. 6/4/6/3/12/3.1

Rerate 7/13/08. Bottle from Whole Foods Market Charlottesville. Dark brown pour with excellent head retention and lacing. Roasted malt aroma with hints of vanilla. Taste is roasted malt, vanilla and a tart fruitiness. Full bodied. Must have gotten a less than stellar bottle before, because this really hits the spot. 6/4/8/4/14/3.6

Nate (4263) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 16, 2008
Bottled. Light vanilla aroma with some metallic chocolate and coffee. A bit of hops and papery carbonic gaseousness. Some sweetness. Dark brown-black clear with thin foamy off-white head. Medium-light body with medium-heavy carbonation. Starts with malty chocolate sweetness, light Tootsie Roll. Bit of acidic coffee-tang and carbonic burn. Light vanilla notes. Mild nutty-papery bitterness in the finish, with dusty chalky after. Not a very good porter, kinda watery.

Sampled at Stimmeld in BG, OH. Good head (for a five ounce sample) and somewhat aromatic. The first thing that jumps out at you is the vanilla, proving that they are using real vanilla beans. But otherwise the beer is weak and lacking in other disticntive flavors. The tasting host said it struck her as an alcohol flavored soda and I think I have to agree.

sloth (2859) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - APR 7, 2008
Small tan head with a bunch of spotty lace, teeny spotty lace. Clear, chestnut colored brew with a red glow. Nose is vanilla and vanilla with a hint of chocolate. Body is lightly medium, sorta creamy. Sweet malts, not cloying though, light roast, cocoa and vanilla of course and some faint cherry notes. Lightly sweet finish, vanilla extract like. Thanks to jake65 for the bottle!

jgb9348 (5991) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - APR 4, 2008
Deep dark brown coloured body with a frothy and dense tan head. Aroma of strong vanilla, fragrant oak and malt, a bunch of coffee and even a bit of milk. Medium-bodied; Potent lactic qualities with sour milk and cream more noticeable than anything else. Roasted malt showing through with some caramel, along with a bit of nuts. Aftertaste potent and strong, but the sweetness is definitely there. Overall, a decent porter - more of a sweet stout to me, but the lactic qualities are strong as well as the vanilla. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Total Wine in McLean, Virginia on 03-April-2008.
