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.

Very dark in color and dark head. Smells of chocolate with vanilla. Can taste a chocolate flavor, and vanilla. Very smooth texture. Not much of an aftertaste. Good beer.

bhensonb (12596) - Woodland, California, USA - JAN 20, 2013
Bottle from Total Wine in Sacramento, CA. Pours ruddy dark brown with a creamy/foamy light tan head. Fairly faint chocolate and vanilla aromas. Arguably medium body. There’s smooth burnt malt, and some chocolate, and a heavy dose of vanilla which dominates the not quite dry finish. Drinkable. Velvety? Arguable. It is smooth.

Poured from bottle. Good vanilla and chocolate smell and flavor. Not to over powering. Smooth. Somewhat rich. I surprisingly like this

TizzleJizzle (736) - Garland, Texas, USA - JAN 18, 2013
Bottle at a party. Poured a dark mahogany with a white top that lasted throughout but little to no lacing. Taste of nuts (either pecan or hazelnut), vanilla, cream soda, caramel malts, and slight coco and sweet malts. Nicely carbonated. All in all, nothing special but not bad

timc100 (314) - Park Ridge, Illinois, USA - JAN 18, 2013
Aroma of light roasted malts and some chocolate, slight coffee - smooth vanilla in the background. Tastes pretty boring, but not offensive. Decent porter, vanilla is nice.

JuliusCaesar (162) - New Hampshire, USA - JAN 17, 2013
UPDATED: JAN 18, 2013 Ok but a little lacking. Decent flavors and some hops in the finish. Not a fan of this one.

shrubber85 (9140) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JAN 16, 2013
Bottle. Light vanilla and chocolate malt aroma. Dark chestnut brown with large tan head. Mild chocolate malt flavor with a hint of herbal bitterness. Pleasant enough - just extremely light.

nuplastikk (5090) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 16, 2013
Tap at Brink. Amber-brown, stained glass. Creamy beige head. The vanilla is huge and overpowering, really the only thing going on. Medium bodied, very easy to drink for the ABV, probably because it is so sweet. Too sweet to go back for more, not a quality offering. My score seems way too high.

jmcgavin12 (492) - Madison, USA - JAN 15, 2013
Pours medium brown with almost nonexistent head. Aroma helps to make up for the appearance with aromatic hints of vanilla and roasted malt character. Hints of chocolate are also present accompanied by a bit of caramel or coffee. However, the taste doesn’t follow the aroma. Very thin sweet taste. Only a hint of bitter notes. The body is thin, carbonation is not lively and the finish doesn’t leave a stellar impression. I wouldn’t say no, but I wont be having a lot of it.

Bottle, SBT. Cola, roasty brown. Sweet grassy nose, root beer, sweet, dr. pepper body. So strange, I’m not getting this at all. Kind of sticky, tickling high carbonation. Roasty cream finish. Rather lactic. No thanks, shared it with the drain.
