In our continued quest to drink only great beer, I bring you Breckenridge Brewery’s Vanilla Porter. This beer is delicious and though it is available year round it is especially nice in the Fall: while it’s still warm enough to enjoy a cold beer yet the crispness in the air makes welcome this beer’s creaminess and notes of chocolate and vanilla. If poured, it is a beautiful dark chocolate color and smells of vanilla and roasted nuts. I don’t consider this beer especially sweet, it is still beer after all, however it does have a smoothness that I don’t taste in many porters. There is hardly a trace of bitterness; just easy drinking, deeply flavored beer with a creamy, rich mouthfeel.
