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.

12 oz bottle poured into a pint glass

This beer pours dark brown that turns black in the glass, red around the edges and a light brown head. The beer has a lot of roasted character, there is also a good deal of coffee in this beer. The vanilla however, is its strongest taste attribute. It is a very vanilla forward brew. There is a little chocolate character to this beer as well. The mouthfeel is lacking, it is a very sessionable beer but I would like to have seen something a bit thicker. It is a solid drinkable and flavorful porter.

Poured almost black into a frosty pint glass, the pour yielded a thin tan head of about a finger or so that disappeared quickly with just a bit of lacing. The vanilla notes are interesting...they come on late and aren't overpowering, but seem to be very well balanced with the rest of the brew. This is a decent porter...very easy to drink with just the right amount of creamy vanilla flavor. Just a little too much carbonation, but otherwise not too much to complain about. The price for 6 was over 10 bucks here in Maryland. Seemed a little steep for this brew, but again this is a pretty decent brew so I'm not gonna complain much. Cheers!
