poured into a tulip. dark brown when it was poured but when held up to light in the glass it was near pitch black... decent head of about 1 in. reduced to about 1/4in.
Dark malt and smooth vanilla with some very light pine like hop notes towards the end.
smoooth malt to start with some chocolate bitterness in the middle that is followed by light vanilla and an almost black cherry flavor. some bittering hops detected in the end and finished crisp which was weird for the style... carbonation is higher maybe that is why. very interesting.
medium bodied with a higher carbonation... different than other porters but done very nicely. thought it could be a bit thicker though.
Overall a good beer. worth a try if you see it. this is my first from Breckenridge brewery and i think I'll have to try a few more by them for sure.

Nov 2014 - Rattle n Hum, on tap. Seems vanilla is farther back but still a worthy brew.
2013 At Rattle N Hum Caught this on the cusp of the season. Glad to see it. This is a fine brew. Balanced & polite. Not much is given away under the nose but the coffee, chocolate & of course the vanilla, jump out on the tongue. Subterfuge at it's most hospitable. 74F outside & it still has relevance. Go you Breckenridge.
2013 Rattle n Hum, NYC. On tap. Second try reveals serious vanilla followed by a nicely balanced taste & mouth feel. Well crafted. Demands a second helping & at a friendly 4.7 ABV, let's do it.
01/10/12 At Rattle N Hum, NYC. Nice. Not too sweet. Medium body. Not the winter warmer I expect from a porter, but worth a try.
