Notes / Commercial Description:
Deep in the jungles of Papua New Guinea and Madagascar grows the perfect ingredient for an extraordinary Porter brewed in Colorado. Breckenridge Brewery’s Vanilla Porter.

Poured from the 12 oz, bottle into a Samuel Adams nonick.

a: Clear dark ruby with a finger thick offwhite head which receded quickly to thin surface foam and some spotty lacing.

s: Slight vanilla.

t: Vanilla over a medium dark malt base followed by hop bite on the sides of the tongue. Vanilla and smoke in the aftertaste.

m: Medium, very smooth.

o: Easy drinking and highly sessionable. First beer I have had which had vanilla in its title and actually delivered significant vanilla flavor. Since vanilla is a personal favorite flavor, I'm liking this porter a lot, although the more common porter smokliness or cold coffee or dark chocolate tones which are mostly absent or masked here are fine too.
