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.

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.

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

The aroma is light malt caramel, the color is a walnut brown with a thin cream head. The taste is light with a stronger aftertaste of coffee. The beer is easy to drink, and overall not great.

Decent solid porter, however lacks in the Vanilla taste which is what i was expecting. At the price of this at my local gas station (9.50) i probably wont buy again over better porters ive had at a much more reasonable price, but i was glad to have tasted it. breckenridge continutes to be a decently solid brewery

A pretty good porter, I was hoping for more of a vanilla aroma and taste. However, this is a well balanced beer and I would drink it again. Nice dark color, not very much aroma. Like most porters it had little head, little carbonation.

Draft. Pour was dark brown with an average amount of tan head. I expect more coffee taste, but was pleasently surprised to taste the dominating vanilla. Roasted taste of chocolate. A little higher abv and this would be amazing.

Served from tap into a standard pint. Pours dark brown with a slight red hue with a minimal off-white head. Maintains decent lacing throughout. The aroma is comprised of malt and vanilla. The flavor is of malt, cream, oatmeal, and vanilla. It was medium on the palate with low carbonation. Overall this was a nice brew. The vanilla note was a very nice touch that toned down some of the sharper flavors present making it quite enjoyable. This one is worth a shot if you get the chance.
