Dead Soldier 
Where to Dig Up More About This Beer
Breckenridge Vanilla Porter
Breckenridge Brewery
471 Kalamath Street
Denver, CO USA
Est. 1989 

Brain Damage Quotient = 4.7 % ABV

Postmortem Brew Review
Rootbeer color.
Smell of malt and vanilla sweetness on the nose.

Tan head, about one finger high, covers to wisp.
Fair amount of lacing down the side of the glass.

Vanilla taste flirts through the malt body.
Light to medium bodied mouth feel.

Grim Reaper's Eulogy
A super porter with the great taste of vanilla added.  I have tried this both in the bottle and on draught, with my preference leaning toward the draught pour.  But by no means does that diminish from the bottled version.

This porter exclaims that it's "Remarkable" and "Partakable" and also that it's "Seldom Seen and Never Duplicated".  It reads and sounds like the sideshow barker at your local carnival or county fair.  Whatever the pitch, go try some of this special porter made with real vanilla.  Oh so good!

  1. Damn, I wish I could get this beer where I live. I have heard nothing but fantastic reviews...including a guest review that my friend Silvio from DC posted on my site. GAH!
