Breckinridge Brewery Vanilla Porter: This porter has the standard black body and tan pillowy head. The head actually lasts rather than thinning out as the head on some porters do. Aroma is subtle, sweet with notes of mellow roast. On flavor, the vanilla really comes thorough. It is a nice complement to the porter flavor. This beer is sweet, smooth and easy to drink. While I am not a big fan of flavored beers, the vanilla in this Breckinridge brew does work well.

Poured in to the Vanilla Porter proprietary glass. The color is dark chestnut. The beer was too cold initially. As the beer warmed up, the vanilla aroma and taste started to really come out. The warmer the beer got the smoother and more complex the taste got. The vanilla is very pronounced but it doesn't feel like it gets in the way of the porter. Its got a nice flavor and it would be a nice beer to serve to a group that has various tastes.

Serving type: on-tap

Poured from a bottle into a tumbler pint, the beer is a ruby highlighted, vibrant, dark brown that is almost black in the depths. No head on this brew. Aromas are rich in vanilla extract and brown sugary scents. Very smooth and enticing. The beer's flavors are very rich, as well, with a sugary/candied sweetness overlaying the rich, smooth vanilla and buttery backbone. Only the slightest hint of mocha coffee, but it was just enough to bring some balance to everything. Despite all the overly sweet characteristics, the beer remains crisp and clean on a light body. Not cloying, the aftertaste is rich and darkly sweet, with the vanilla making a slight cookie-batter flavor. Slick, quick finish, making this beer insanely easy to drink. Wow...very tasty!
