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

Bottle to pint glass. My wife actually picked this one up looking to try something new and mild for herself. She’s not a hophead and was willing to share it with me. Not much of a head nor any decent lace left behind. The vanilla is apparent, decent aroma. Taste was fine, sort of reminding me of root beer with less carbonation. Mouthfeel was good and aftertaste didn’t linger much. Overall, I fine beer and I could drink a handful, no problem.

ModeEngage (152) - Lowell, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 19, 2013
Pours a rich brown/black with a short head. Not much on the nose, honestly. Sweet. Tastes strongly of vanilla, little else on the palate, though. Very one dimensional. Finishes astringently.

This one pours nicely, with scents of dark chocolate and a head better than 1/2" high. Its color is almost as dark as a porter can be. This one comes across slightly sweet, with little bitterness but the mouthfeel is comparatively thin. Not bad from Leinie’s but not my favorite vanilla porter.

From a 12oz bottle, poured dark with slight head that faded quickly. Smell was some vanilla, hint of roasted coffee. Taste was coffee, malt, some bitter chocolate and a hint of vanilla extract. Not to sweet and an ok beer nothing memorable.

BlowOffTube (499) - Michigan, USA - NOV 16, 2013
Dark brown pour, tan head. Looks thin but don’t expect anything less. Light roasted vanilla aroma. Hints of chocolate vanilla and coffee, but all faint.thin body medium carbonation. Nice effort.

UPDATED: DEC 30, 2014 11/15/2013 - Black with a creamy head but quickly diminishing. Aroma of vanilla extract. Milky vanilla flavor with a smooth creamy palate. 12/30/2014 - Pours a very dark ruby color with a thin tan head that disappears quickly. Aromas of vanilla and coffee beans. Has a very sugary vanilla taste and a heavy body. Slight sour aftertaste.

Inviting porter with just enough vanilla so as to not come across as too syrupy-sweet. A new personal fave for winter-time drinking! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
