Dark brown-color with a frothy head. Vanilla rich chocolate notes in the aroma. Creamy rich flavor. Has a light oily roasted character. I think the vanilla overtakes the other characteristics of a porter, more roasted, malts and chocolate coffee notes. A nice drinkable beer. beerchugger (716) - North Canton, Ohio, USA - JUN 25, 2009
Pours a very dark brown color with a decent tan head that never left. THere were sheets of lace left behind from the head making this a very attractive beer. Smells of raosted malt are most noticeable. There are also hints of sweet vanilla and a tad chocolate. The flavor is mostly the same, but not very outstandish. Almost cloyingly sweet from the overload of vanilla. It has a rather thin mouthfeel. dmschefke (575) - Macomb, Michigan, USA - AUG 26, 2009
Pours a dark brown with medium tan head, decent lacing. Flavor strong of vanilla, roasted malt, and not a lot else. Flavor is bordering cloyingly sweet, but not bad otherwise.

Dark brown with a light brown head. Aroma is caramel, chocolate and vanilla. Flavour is sticky sweet chocolate and overpowering vanilla. reggiedunlop (3726) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 13, 2009
pours a very deep brown color...not quite black...with a fairly thin light tan head...poor retention. aroma is slightly nutty and roasty with a hint of molasses with faint vanilla and alcohol aromas. flavor has caramel and vanilla with some nuttiness...tastes a bit like vanilla extract smells. slightly creamy mouthfeel with a nutty vanilla finish.

Tastes like a very neutral dark ale with a bit of vanilla extract. It doesn’t taste bad, but it leaves a lot to be desired. mgoy (344) - New York, New York, USA - JAN 20, 2010
I drank a Breckenridge Vanilla Porter for brunch the morning after NYE 2010 in Chicago with my brother.
The appearance in a clear medium dark red color with an average and frothy head.
The aroma is malty, roasted, and has hints of vanilla. The taste is the same with the watery consistency known of average to below average porters.
I did not dislike this beer, but would not order again. potbeerjob (1343) - Denver, Colorado, USA - FEB 1, 2010
Draught at WBF. Dark brown with small head. Aroma of roasted chocolate and light vanilla. Taste is sweet and somewhat syrupy. beernovice39 (3270) - Idaho, USA - FEB 4, 2010
Dark red pour with thin tan head. Sweet malt scent and vanilla. Taste is ok at first then the vanilla way over takes the taste. This is not what I look for in a Porter but would make a great after dinner drink. ruyehara88 (49) - Killeen, USA - MAR 8, 2010
Dark, dark brown pour, White, medium, head. Aroma is a light vanilla (there’s a surprise). Thin to medium body, pleasant carbonation, not much bitterness at all. The bitterness that is there feels malt related(?) and is at the end. Vanilla, again, dominates throughout.
