Bottle drank at Freshcraft in Denver, CO.

Pours a semi-clear dark brown color with a 1/2 inch tan head that fades to an oily film. Thin rings of lace line the glass on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malts and vanilla beans. Taste is of dark roasted malts, vanilla cola, and vanilla extract. This beer has good carbonation with a soda-like crisp and clean mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good porter with some unique vanilla flavors. I would definitely get this one again. My first beer from Breckenridge.

On tap at Lindley Park Filling Station here in Greensboro.Poured into a standard pint a deep dar brown with some ruby hue to it,a thinner but well sustained off white head atop.Big sweet vanilla aromas mixed with some roasted notes,flavors are quite sweet up front with vanilla and molasses flavors, there is a decent drying woddy,earthy finish to keep it from being sweeter than it already is.Not bad but the sweetness up front can be a bit much though.

i had this for the first time last year and remember really liking it. i went and grabbed a 6 pack recently and am enjoying one right now. it really really smells like vanilla. it goes down a little bit like soda, but not in a bad way. i guess i just mean the carbonation is soda-like. it's very easy to drink.

it's not some kind of earth shattering revelation of a beer but it is very enjoyable and i think it's well done for what it is supposed to be.

i will continue buying this.
