COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Leinenkugelís Snowdrift Vanilla Porter is a robust and velvety addition to Leinenkugelís seasonal selection. This porter-style beer is aged on real vanilla to reveal rich layers of caramel, coffee and chocolate that is ideal for the season.

Drank from the bottle. Vanilla in the nose masks a hint of porter roast. The flavor is a bit flat, but it warms takes a dimensional milk chocolate note. Thereís not a lot of roast or cacao notes like I associate with porter. Vanilla lends s fair bit of sweetness. The finish has a slightly unpleasant cardboard taste at first when cold, then gets just s bit sweet when warmer.

Bottle. Pours, looks and smells like a porter. Thereís a definite vanilla essence in the aroma, and an evenly tilted vanilla swirl in the flavor, too. Not bad. (#5339, 11/23/2013)

Bottle. Smells mildly like vanilla and the taste follows. Pours copper dark, looks like a Coke in the glass. Taste isnít very complex at all though, but itís a nice holiday sipping beer.

Bottle, pretty decent. I like the vanilla. Porter is just ok but not bad for the price. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Smells a lot less of vanilla than I hoped. There is a heavier yeast aroma than anything else. Pours very dark with a minimal head. Not as heavy on the tongue as it appears it will be. The vanilla flavor is also a little more subdued than I hoped, but it balances the malts nicely. I prefer a drier porter, so take this review with a grain of salt. It's nice for what it is, but I've had better.

The aroma of the beer is subtle, blending vanilla and roasted malts, and the appearance combines a reddish brown color with a medium light head that diminishes quickly. The taste is mildly sweet yet quite umami, which is a nice blend; furthermore, the palateís fairly complementary due to the oily texture, medium body, soft carbonation, and a long yet muted extension of the flavor.

Shanebrews (167) - Texas, USA - NOV 21, 2013
This beer has a flavor which develops slowly and in distinctive waves. The beer is smooth at first, with a subdued vanilla. It imparts some body on its way down. Then the roastiness kicks in. I love the finish. Very drinkable in the Leinenkugels style.

Vanilla aroma with some chocolate malt in the background. Taste follows suit, but mostly vanilla. Watery palate as usual with Leinenkugelís. Actually was a little better than I expected overall, though. Easy and pleasant enough to drink.
