Friday Grog Blogging: Breck's Vanilla Porter

Welcome to Friday Grog Blogging, the time of the week when I buy beer, drink it, and ramble. This week I'm enjoying Breckenridge Brewery's Vanilla Porter, an "ale brewed with real vanilla beans". Continue on for More Dwarf.

First Impressions: There's a strong aftertaste of vanilla. Which is good, because it's supposed to. It's dark and warm, but not too heavy. A mild beeriness spreads out over the top of the mouth, and then hits like a thud in the gut. The vanilla really mitigates the growliness, which sets it apart from other porters. After about a bottle and a half, it's really starting to fill me up.

A decent porter with a strong finish of vanilla. Six out of eight pints.
