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.

Drjohnrock (758) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 22, 2016
Poured from 12 ounce bottle from mix six pack purchased at Dent Kroger, tasted on January 16, 2016. Very dark brown hue, aroma of roasted malt/vanilla/chocolate with a hint of licorice and a chemical note, sweet mostly vanilla flavor with some chemical taste which lowers the score some. For anyone who likes this brewerys Christmas Ale like I do, I suggest picking up some if you can still find it since AB will very likely mess up the next edition of it. Just wish I would have known about the upcoming megabrewer takeover when I still could have gotten some Breckenridge Autumn Ale. As things stand, this is very likely the last Breckenridge beer I will ever drink. To AB InBev: Enjoy your investment. Eat shit.

Beerkenstock (106) - Baden-Wrttemberg, GERMANY - JAN 7, 2016
Eye: Pours a dark brown non see through color with a thick beige head and little carbonation. Nose: herbal malts, wheat and other cereals Mouth: coffee malts, a bit fruity and even chocolaty and with a lot of imagination a hint of vanilla Palate: roasted nuts, dark malts, also a bit sweet with a touch of bitterness Overall: on the malty side, slightly watery, I dont really get the vanilla. decent beer but by far not my favorite porter

Thin light brown pour with a slight head. Nice roasted malt nose and vanilla there too. Taste is a little watery for a porter, thin. Taste itself is pretty nice, roasted malt, caramel, vanilla.

Sirmixsomewhat (266) - Paoli, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 10, 2015
I dont really have any problems with this beer; it isnt offensive to any of my senses, but it doesnt stand out as anything spectacular, and given its niche style, it should be able to do that to be memorable. It pours with almost no head and doesnt sit smoothly before swallowing, but it smells great, otherwise looks good, and tastes solid enough to want to keep drinking it.

coachd (697) - Missouri, USA - NOV 8, 2015
Im getting some vanilla in the aroma and some roasty/sweet porter characteristics, but everything in the scent is muted and weak. I wanted more here. Pours a flat black color with a tiny off white head. Flavor contains some dark chocolate, hazelnut and vanilla with a slight amount of bitterness at the very end to balance things out. The palate is not good at all. Watery, overly carbonated and weak. No thanks, I will not be trying this one again.

tombyars (1656) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - NOV 8, 2015
Tasted this in the Three Monkeys, 264 West 54th Street, Manhattan on the 20th September 2015. 16oz draft, keg dispense. Clear dark garnet in colour with a creamy buff head. Malty aroma with notes of creamy vanilla present. Creamy mouthfeel and good lacing. Dark malt complex gives maltloaf base with strong dark chocolate, vanilla pod, black cherry notes all in the mouth. There is a hint of dry hop flowers in this, but this fades away rather fast in the brief aftertaste. Finish is smooth and malty with sweet notes of American cream soda and black cherry fruit.. A lovely session porter.
