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.

Bottle. Poured deep brown in color with only a hint of red. Smaller off white head. Roasted nut aroma. Taste is INTENSE and authentic vanilla. This is like drinking straight vanilla extract watered down in some beer. The finish is more roasted malts and nuts but the vanilla stays strong, long. This beer is as close to cream soda as beer can come.

Medicinal lilac aroma. Very heavy but soft mouthfeel. On the sweet side with cola and vanilla flavors but not quite sweet enough to highlight the vanilla. Finshes with lingering chocolate. Overall, a bit like a malted and not much more complex than that.

122 oz bottle, pours a nice dark brown to black nice off white to tan head . Nice aroma of vanila with notes of chocolate and malt. Not a ridiculous amount of vanilla in the aroma and flavor. Balanced flavor with the vanilla with a nice rich porter mouthfeel

Pours thin for a porter. Is much lighter than a typical porter. The vanilla has a decent aroma, and it does smell like it would be better than it is... thin, with a bitter/sour note that I doubt is supposed to be there. I might chalk this one up to a bad bottle, but I doubt I’d give it much more of a try.

Dark translucent brown with a small tan head. Vanilla is overwhelming, strong malt and coffee tastes to finish. Very smooth, almost no carbonation. Its a decent beer, but Im not a big fan of vanilla.

This stuff is decent. The mouthfeels a little thin, the vanilla is present, which is nice, but not that amazing.

had this at a Devonshire tasting. this beer smelled bad, like it was past its prime. it looked wonderful for a porter. very dark and robust looking. the flavor was bad and I didnt taste any vanilla at all. It was just skunky and no vanilla. very hard to finish.

Deep copper, thin straw head. Rich roasty aroma. Chocolate, coffee. Dry, lively palate. Roasty, some metallic, light vanilla.

Good smelling beer of honey and vanilla. Very smooth and clean on the palate. Flavors are sweet and smooth. Very good beer, even Julie would drink this dark ale. Buy again.

Dark roasted aroma is subtle/faint. Medium to light bodied mouthfeel - was expecting a little more malt sweetness. The vanilla is there but light - nothing overpowering but leaves me wanting more. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
