Very dark brown with a small off-white head. Caramel and molasses in the aroma. Cloying sweet with way too much vanilla flavour. Stuu666 (13635) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 19, 2016

Bottle. Pours dark brown with a small mostly dissipating tan foamy head. Aroma is dark roasted chocolate and caramel malt (toast) and leathery yeast with a vanilla nose. Vanilla and dark malt medium sweet flavor that transcends into a medium bitter and acidic drying spicy toasted caramel malt finish. Dark bodied and fizzy-spicy palate.

Dark reddish-brown color with a medium thick tan head with decent retention. The lacing is pretty good, it coats much of the glass. Strong vanilla aroma along with some chocolate and malt. Medium body, smooth with just a bit of carbonation. Flavors of vanilla bean, roasted malt and more chocolate. The finish maintains the vanilla theme, with a nice nutty flavor in the aftertaste. Unlike a lot of Breckenridge beers, I would actually seek this out to try again. crossovert (13080) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 26, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 17, 2014 Old rate. This is a solid vanilla porter. It isn’t over the top but it delivers what it’s name calls for. Re-rate. 355ml bottle. Pours a reddish dark brown with a smaller foamy off-white head. The smell is odd, a bit of hazelnut and lots of vanilla, and also a tanginess that is almost infected-smelling, but I guess it comes off maybe as raspberry. Flavor is again tangy, but in a more cream soda type way, definitely alot of vanilla, cola flavor, raspberry. Not much roastiness aside from a bit of cocoa, more like a brown ale. Rating bumped down a tad.
