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.

33 cl bottle, Fargo. Cola like appearance, with a head that lasts a bit longer. Medium malt aroma, Quite sweet, massive vanilla hit, then a sweet/bitter finished mingled with the vanilla. Not really my style but certainly worth a taste.

Where is the vanilla? Oh, there it is upon sampling this fine brew. Flavor is spectacular but leaves a sour aftertaste that I easily overcome.

Pours reddish brown with small off white head. Aroma has light pine smell along with some distinct sweetness. The flavor is quiet sweet with definate vanilla but little else. The taste quickly disapears and the body is quite light.

zombywoof (462) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - JAN 2, 2008
Minimal light tan head and lacing-dark brown color. Aroma seems a little mild-a little coffee and molasses with a sort of cellar dankness. Flavor is pretty good-not too sweet. Body seems a little thin....also some vanilla.

thill25 (232) - Orlando, Florida, USA - FEB 4, 2008
Pours a deep brown...w/ small tan head. Good lacing...Not much on the nose; I picked up vanilla, & roasted malt...Vanilla throughout the taste along with a touch of coffee and chocolate. Very sweet! A little too sweet IMHO. I was hoping for a little bite at the end of the palate, but no dice. Would pair well with dessert.

UPDATED: JUN 5, 2009 Brewed in the USA... Courtesy of the Capt, thanks mark !! Pours brown in color with a thin beige head. Aroma of vanilla beans, chocolate and malts. Taste is much of the same, but still pretty drinkable.

lweiberg (139) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - MAR 10, 2008
Very malty and fleeting, somewhat thin and definitely low ABV. It doesnt go wrong at any point, and I really didnt taste too much vanilla, but its a decent beer, although I wouldnt pay more than $6 for a sixer.

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

kidmartinek (4966) - austin, Texas, USA - MAR 31, 2008
Pours drak brown with a 1.5 inch light tan head. Smell like sweet malt and strong vanilla. Taste is kinda weird, like a good beer and a scoop of vanilla ice cream float. Finish is sugary and malt. Mouthfeel is medium. Pretty good, but not something I would probably buy again.

This beer looks pretty good. Has a solid off-white head, with a good looking black color. The head doesnt fade away fast, which is good. The flavor is not what I expected. Everything is very subtle. I smell the vanilla a lot, but I wish I could say that for the taste. The vanilla is not as crisp as I thought it would be. I was expecting more of an obvious vanilla flavor, but that is not the case. The vanilla and the malt/coffee flavor are very mild. The beer has a decent palate. This is a decent palate but the malts and the vanilla and the coffee, all seem very muted. In reading the description this beer leans more towards nutty for me than it does coffee. Decent brew.
