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.

   AROMA 4/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 2/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 10/20
cazort (560) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 11, 2014
I did not like this one much at all. It is fairly sweet, lacks bitterness, and is dark in color but has only a weak roast in the aroma. The vanilla combined with the sweetness makes it taste a lot more like cream soda than a typical beer. Pretty disappointing. I love vanilla when its paired with a drier beer, or a richer, more bitter and complex beer, but this one was just too simple and sweet, and too much like a soft drink.

Tap at brewburgers, venice. Black color, white head. Roasty aroma has some vanilla notes. Nice balanced roasty body, nice note of vanilla, some coffee. Good balance.

PanMarek (302) - Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 21, 2016
Dark, reddish brown pour with large, thin beige foam. Roasted and caramel malt in the nose with vanilla and a little chocolate. Medium body, slightly slick and thin fizz. The vanilla is subtle at first, but emerges as it warms. Rich, with a long finish. A good winter beer, heavier than a brown, lighter than a stout.

ordybill (1455) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - OCT 6, 2016
Poured from a 16 Oz can into a pint glass at the Taco Mac in Cumberland, GA. Has the great cascading nitro look. the taste was very one dimensional and had no "back end".

ROGUE (2205) - Lewes, Delaware, USA - OCT 5, 2016
12oz bottle. Pours a medium brown color with an inch tan head that left a couple rings of lacing. Smell is vanilla, coffee and chocolate. Taste follows the smell with vanilla first and foremost followed by coffee, semi-sweet chocolate, nuts and malt. Lightly carbonated, mouthfeel is thin, a bit watery

Can - nitro (another in the "How the Hell did I miss this" series). Vanilla, chocolate malt and straw aroma. Very dark brown with light tan head. Moderately sweet vanilla chocolate malt, and mildly bitter hay flavor. No carbonation, nice body. Very nice.

Boomersmancave1 (133) - Wheatland, Indiana, USA - JUL 2, 2016
Out of all the vanilla porters on the market, this one kicks butt. Bottle. Vanilla and malt aroma. Malty vanilla flavors, but it's more intense than other vanilla porters out there. Nice beer!
