COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Leinenkugel’s Snowdrift Vanilla Porter is a robust and velvety addition to Leinenkugel’s 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.

12oz bottle pours a clear dark brown with a fizzy tan head that faded and leaves decent lacing. Smell of roasted malt, dark fruit, caramel, chocolate and vanilla. Tastes of all the same things in the smell. Mouthfeel is medium and watery with light carbonation. This was pretty average for a porter. I like that they used vanilla. The appearance and mouthfeel hurt it. I’d still drink it again though.

Draft. Pours dark brown with creamy beige head. Aroma is strong vanilla, roasted malts, light earthy notes, and plums. Flavor is dry malts, some vanilla and dark fruit sweetness, with light ash. Feels thin throughout with a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

I didn’t fimd anything especially wrong with this, except that it wasn’t very good. The palate--acceptable for a porter. The flavor--not the most elegant vanilla or porter. The aroma--rather dull. But then, this is a brewery that is aiming for a different of the craft beer market than where I am at. Bottle.

Opens weak. Pours like a lager. Not as strong as a vanilla porter should be. Very lil head. Wouldnt recomend this to true porter fans.

This beer had an interesting flavor it was a coffee flavor but with vanilla, it's like a girly Starbucks drink. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tap. Pours dark brown with creamy beige head. Aroma is light vanilla, roasted malts, light earthy notes, and plums. Flavor is dry malts, some vanilla and dark fruit sweetness, and light ash; thin throughout with a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

Pours and looks like flat coke. Feels a bit "gritty" on my tongue. Overall, a bit disappointing considering the brewer. Too bad there are five more bottles to go.

strattonspeaks (113) - Springfield, Missouri, USA - DEC 5, 2013
Dark brown pour, small tan topper. Blunted roast aroma. Vanilla with hints of burnt coffee. Taste comes through a bit crisper. Vanilla and chocolate on a soft roasted backbone. A bit thin for a porter but pleasant enough.

Holtguy (166) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - DEC 3, 2013
Very dark amber pour with thin off white head. Clear. Aroma is weak, with roasted malts and burnt coffee. Taste is solid. Smooth, vanilla with roast malt. Kind of a thin porter, not quite as robust as the better versions of this style. Mouthfeel is light and a bit fizzy. Finish is not long. Okay.

onceblind (7302) - Denver, Colorado, USA - DEC 1, 2013
Clear black with a thin foamy light beige head. Nose is a little toasty with a bit of caramel and dark cocoa roastiness. Flavor is lightly roasty with lots of caramel and a light touch of cocoa and a faint kiss of coffee. Mostly roasted earthy sweet caramel. Medium body with nice roasty dessert-y sweetness.
