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 Brewery’s Vanilla Porter. A vanilla kiss in a rich, dark sea.

Draught at the brewpub. Almost black - no head. Roasted, vanilla, grainy, dryness, lactose, chocolate, nutty, light hoppy. Thin body. A bit like vanilla-coke.

DSG (14784) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - APR 26, 2013
Bottle shared with Ariel at Beer Market Jaffa. BBOTM. Very dark ruby color. Sweet aroma of chocolate, vanilla and light roastiness. Sweet flavor, slightly roasty, with chocolate, nutty notes and lots of vanilla. Medium-bodied. Nice and easy drinking. Thought it was just OK at first, but it grew on me as I drank more.

Scopey (14720) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 4, 2013
Tap at Mellow Mushroom, Charleston. It pours darkest brown with a small beige head. The nose is roasted malt, earth, caramel, light vanilla and a hint of malt vinegar. The taste is rich roasted, toast, ashy, earth, wood, salted caramel, burnt notes and liquorice with a dry, roasty finish. Run of the mill porter. So-so.

Drake (13728) - 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

2.8
Christian (13670) - Odense, DENMARK - OCT 10, 2008
Very dark brown with a small off-white head. Caramel and molasses in the aroma. Cloying sweet with way too much vanilla flavour.
