Vanilla Porter - Breckenridge Brewery. Poured from the bottle into a glass mug, this brew's head is 1/2 finger thick,with spotty lacing, and an almost black, clear body.

I'm smelling vanilla,obviously, but only enough to let its presence known. Nothing too sweet. Also in the scent, I can detect dark roasted malts and other favorable porter characteristics.

This tastes like basically the same thing. The malts here are just right in my opinion . A very easy drinking selection.

Mouthfeel here is smooth and refreshing.

Overall, a 4.25 for Vanilla Porter - Breckenridge Brewery. A smooth and tasty sipper ideal for cold nights in.

A - Pours a ridiculously dark amber, looks black unless held to strong light. Form one finger of head which dissipates down to a film, minimal whispy lacing.
S - Hops with a slight vanilla aroma sweetness.
T - Malts, semi-sweet chocolate, lots of vanilla. Medium full body, quick finish. Absolutely delicious.
O - An amazing, 5 star porter.
V - Medium.

It's like drinking your dessert. Had the nitro pour at the Yard House. The head was deliciously thick and creamy, I think partly due to the nitro tap. Toasty malts and biscuits with a nice vanilla aroma, not too heavy on the vanilla. Excellent balance and a clean finish.

If it was just a standard Porter it would be boring and forgettable. The vanilla is very nice, smooth not over powering at all. Exactly enough so I can drink this six pack and not be pissed that I bought it.
