Default Breckenridge vanilla porter

Any one tried to clone this? Just found some at Central market and remembered how much I like it. Would love to clone it.

I haven't tried to clone their vanilla porter but I definitely enjoyed the original.
I'm not a fan of vanilla in beer but they did a darn good job with this. I would definitely order it in a restaurant or bar. (Or in their brewery)

Same here, I have had vanilla beers that were way, way over done. But this one IMO is the perfect amount.

I haven't searched for a clone yet, but one of my all time faves.

It's an awesome creation.

This is what they have on their website

Malts: Two Row Pale, Caramel, Chocolate, Black, Roasted Barley
Hops: Chinook, Tettinang, Perle, Goulding
Vanilla: Real vanilla beans for Paupau New Guinea and Madagascar.
Bitterness Units: 16
Alcohol By Volume: 4.7%

I can't say I really taste the chocolate and roasted too much, so those must be very minimal amounts.

I really, really enjoy the Vanilla Porter they have. My sister and I discovered it a few years back and fell in love with it.

You probably could shoot with 4oz of each, Chocolate and Roasted Barley if you do that to get the flavor.

I've tried it but could barely drink it. It must say something about my taste that other folks say it's got a good amount of vanilla in it, but to me it tastes way too vanilla-y. I like vanilla, but I can't go this beer.

The brewer from Breckenridge is going to be at a local event later this month...if I go (not likely right now), I will see if I can run a few questions by him. This and their small batch IPA are their best beers IMHO.
