look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

First try at the Breckenridge brand. Immediately upon pouring one finds the smell of pure vanilla beans. The taste is about the same with very strong tones of vanilla but that true to porter style of heavy with bright finish. Very very strong alcohol aftertaste lingers in the mouth. The pour is dark brown to nearly black. Light does not penetrate except to give the faintest hint of dark brown tones. Lacing was little to none on the small head that was created. Drinkability is fair given the style, it's not bad but yet not overwhelming. The mouthfeel is typical of a porter but with extra flavoring. If you're in the mood for both porter and vanilla and happen to see this then give it a try, obviously. A recommended brew, if at least for a once off try.
