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.

12oz bottle - oversized wine glass

A- Deep brown with amber hues coming thru in the light

S- Roasted malt, maybe some hints of coffee, hints of sweetness, probably from the vanilla, but I don't detect vanilla standing out.

T- Pretty much like the nose, nothing really Remarkable like the label says.

M- Medium but a light syrupy feel.

O- To me this was a average beer, easy to drink, decent flavor and smell with nothing really standing out. Was really expecting much more vanilla, which to me really was not much.

This is my favorite Porter, one can taste the vanilla in every sip. Good beer to drink on chill evenings in the mountains. This brewery is of very good quality and I have never encountered one of their drinks to be below my expectations. The Vanilla Porter is easy to drink and leaves a good aftertaste in your mouth. Definite recommendation for anyone who wants to try something different.
