Vanilla Porter, an American Porter by Breckenridge Brewery

Share This Review

Vanilla Porter is an American Porter brewed by Breckenridge Brewery, and for the purposes of this craft beer review, the ale was served in a shaker pint glass from a bottle.


The ale pours a mahogany hue and is topped by a half-inch thick cap of tan foam. The head shows modest retention and leaves behind a coat of residue along the sides of the glass.


A sugary aroma of vanilla dominates the nose and is backed by chocolate and roast malt.

The palate follows the nose by opening with sweet vanilla and a touch of lactose. Chocolate adds to the sweetness and is countered by nut and roast flavors from the malt.


Mouthfeel has a medium body and moderate carbonation.


While its use of vanilla beans isn’t groundbreaking, the Vanilla Porter is well-made and a solid representation of the style.
