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.

A- dark brown borderline black with off white tannish head. Retention was short lived

S- coffee and caramel notes with whiffs of vanilla

T-the vanilla is surprisingly subtle. Coffee and roasted malt flavors with the vanilla coming in on the finish

M-fairly thin for the style. Just slightly cloying/ sticky on finish

O-overall not bad but left a lot to be desired. Not really an amazing porter and not enough complexity to be an interesting variation on the style

Poured from 12oz bottle.

The label says Remarkable Vanilla Porter, but I found it was really only one of the three. I could go through all the categories, but if you imagine all those categories for a generic porter you pretty much have this beer figured out. I found it an average porter, but got almost no vanilla and nothing really special from this beer. It is painfully average, so you will not hate this beer, but you will probably not love it either.
