Breckenridge Vanilla Porter

  • SRM Color : 24
  • Brewer: Breckenridge Brewery
  • Brewer's Description: Who would have thought deep in the jungles of Papua New Guinea and Madagascar grew the perfect ingredient to build an extraordinary Porter in Colorado? An ale that has all the chocolate and roasted nut flavor of a classic Porter, with an enigmatic surprise thrown in for good measure, real vanilla bean. Breckenridge Brewery’s Vanilla Porter. A vanilla kiss in a rich, dark sea.
  • Recommended Glassware: A Goblet
  • Russ' rating: 8 of 10
  • With the brew: Fall Weather
  • Comments: Breckenridge has succeeded where very few Brewers have. They have crafted a Beer that my wife can tolerate. The Vanilla Porter poured with a shallow head with average bubble size (0.5mm - 0.7mm). The head however lasted a fairly long time. The Body has a rich Malty aroma, reflecting the dark chocolaty roasted barley used to Malt this Beer. It drinks heavy as you would expect of a Porter, and the Vanilla used in this craft Beer is subtle but present in every sip. I missed the Hoppy bitterness that would normally balance the sweet nuttiness of the Barley, but overall the Beer was very drinkable and pleasant. I enjoyed this Beer quite a bit.
