This beer was recently recommended by a good friend. I'd tried and liked other Breckenridge beers before but not this one. An excellent vanilla porter.

12 oz bottle at the Capital Ale House - Richmond; stange glass
A nice brown color with zero head, but watching the pour from the bartender he really babied it because it filled the glass to the brim;
The vanilla was very noticable and leads me to believe it is a better seondary incredient, not primary
Love the porter, not too high on the vanilla, I felt like I was drinking an ingredient, just too much and it needed some secondary flavors to come forward to accent the beer
Overall, I was somewhat disappointed in this; worth trying, maybe even a second time, but at this point, I wouldn't recommend beyond that.

12 ounce bottle, poured into a pint glass

Appearance: Pours a pretty, completely opaque, pitch black color with an eighth of a finger of caramel-colored head that quickly dissolved into a thin lacing of foam that almost completely covered the top of the beer.

Aroma: Big, strong aromas of roasted malt, imparting notes of coffee, some subtle smoke and dark chocolate, all mixing well with strong aromas of vanilla.

Taste: Tons of roasted malt up front, imparting flavors of freshly baked dark bread, and some subtle coffee. Next comes some brown sugar-like sweetness and some nicely balanced hops, all rounded out and finished with some very tasty vanilla. Really, really good!

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied, with some ok carbonation. With an ABV of 4.7%, there is no presence of alcohol on the palate.

Overall: This is one of my favorite porters. It’s got a great balance of roasted malt, brown sugar-like sweetness, subtle hops and vanilla. Very quaffable and delicious!
