A – Deep black cranberry red with cola highlights. Head pours creamy, about 2 fingers high in the glass, and leaves a nice lace. Moderate retention.

S – Light roast with soft maple syrup. The net effect is waffles. Hunt of caramel booze and vanilla deep in the nose.

T – Smooth chocolate and whipped cream. The vanilla is broad and supports a light roast behind the profile. Mellow coffee and marshmallow finish.

M – Full, creamy body.

O – Nice, complex profile, but could use a shade more intensity.

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.
