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.

BeerandBlues2 (12326) - Escondido, California, USA - APR 1, 2006
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.

Bov (12109) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - JUL 10, 2013
from Bier-Bienne - very dark brown - almost black - beer with a poor head retention; deep aroma of vanilla with notes of black chocolate and cacao underneath; medium-bodied, some sweetness before some bitter earthiness; some residual sweetness and long notes of vanilla and cacao again - a nice dessert beer

Dogbrick (11851) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 6, 2006
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.

hopdog (11774) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 30, 2007
12oz bottle. Poured a dark brown color with an averaged sized tan head. Aromas of roasted and toasted nuts, chocolate, and lighter vanilla. Tastes of vanilla (more than the aromas), chocolate, lighter roast, and nuts. Body a tad on the thin side.

crossovert (11601) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 26, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 17, 2014 Old rate. This is a solid vanilla porter. It isnt over the top but it delivers what its 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.

Draft sampled at the brewpub. Pours hazy amber brown with a tan head. Aroma of malt, fruit, caramel, toffee, fudge. Flavour is over moderate sweet and light bitter. Light medium bodied with soft carbonation.

djd07 (11310) - Houston, Texas, USA - NOV 16, 2009
On tap at flying saucer. Pours a very dark brown with a snall frothy light tan head that diminishes quickly leaving sticky lacing. The aroma is a faint roast and caramel. Medium mouthfeel with a sweet roast and vanilla. Easy to drink a good porter from Breckenridge.
