Bottle pours mahogany with nice tan head. Malty aroma with flavors of dark, but not overly sweet fruits, lightly toasted malts, and spices (nutmeg, cinnamon). Decent winter ale, light on the palate and very smooth.

From a bottle. Slightly spicy watery and bland porter with a touch of vanilla. Very light mouthfeel. Not offensive but forgettable.

Simple beer. Highly Drinkable. For a more mainstream beer Leinenkugels has a great seasonal selection. Pours a slightly transparent black with heavy heavy heavy vanilla (delicious) but not overly sweet. Notes of chocolate and caramel. Iíd classify this more of a dark lager than a Porter with its low gravity (lacks thickness/viscosity) but nonetheless delicious. Especially for the price. Great to share with beer geeks or the occasional beer drinker.

Dark brown pour with small tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, cocoa and vanilla. Tastes of roasted malts, slight coffee, faint chocolate and vanilla. Medium bodied with perfect carbonation, very good porter.

beeratarian (102) - cleveland, Ohio, USA - DEC 24, 2013
Pours dark brown with thin beige head. Aromas of tobacco and toasty malt. Taste is thin but tolerable. Flavor is a little chocolate, a little tobacco. Slightly thin for the style but drinkable for the brewer.

Yes this beer is big on vanilla and short on hops. However, it works for me. Nice dark pour with an off white head. Is p ethos a bit sweet, which is mostly what people complain about. This is a seasonal beer, and I look forward to it every winter. A good porter.

26 Dec 2013, bottle. black with thick foamy head. nose is roasted malt and perhaps lightly toasted vanilla. thin, creamy body, perhaps slightly syrupy, and lightly fizzy. much more vanilla in the flavor, like a vanilla latte, some dark chocolate in the finish. sweet up front, slightly bitter at the end. decent all around.

Ron (2681) - Rochester, New York, USA - DEC 23, 2013
Bottle. Dark brown pour, small tan head. It has a pleasant aroma dominated by the roasted malt. The flavor is sweet with chocolate and vanilla notes. Itís like a good Vanilla Porter that has been watered down a bit.

SPDickerman (989) - Texas, USA - DEC 20, 2013
Pours dark mahogany brown with a small brown head. Smells mildly of roast and vanilla. Taste is mild sweetness, hints of roast, and kinda like soda. Medium-bodied with a wet texture and soft mouth-carbonation, Leinenkugelís Snowdrift Vanilla Porter finishes with a cloying sweetness.
