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.

Tap. Pours a clear brown body with a minimal fizzy beige head that faded to a thin film. The nose is pretty minimal, especially with how cold it was served, but there is a little light roast, coffee, and vanilla bean. The flavor is pretty well dominated by the vanilla beans, so much so that it tastes pretty artificial. Thereís some roast, chocolate, and a big of a black strap molasses like sweetness on the finish. Not bad, but a little too one dimensional to be really good.

(bottle - 12 oz - Night of the Titans 2013) Found a bottle in the fridge near the end of the night so I tried it. Brown pour with a light puffy head. Sweet vanilla and roasted malt aroma, almost like a roasty milkshake. Flavor has some of that mildly fake vanilla extract flavor mixing with some light and watered down coffee with some cocoa stirred in. Not bad but nothing special either. Decent porter.

Bottle. Dark brown pour with a quickly disappearing tan head. Big vanilla aroma, with tones of chocolate and coffee. The vanilla may not taste natural, but thereís no mistaking its flavor. Slighly bitter, cocoa finish. Creamy texture with average carbonation. A little thin but its a simple recipe that works well for the Winter. Probably my favorite Leiny offering.

Draft at the Phoenix Open. Dark brown pour, light head. Sweet vanilla, chocolate flavora. A tad artificial but not awful.

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - FEB 4, 2013
Serving: 12 oz. bottle from Wegmans Leesburg. It pours a deep cola like color with a small, tan head. The nose smells like musty vegetables, fake vanilla, and rotting wood. The flavor, thankfully, is much better. Heavy vanilla with milk chocolate and a touch of lingering off vegetal notes. Medium to full body. There are certainly worse beers, but this one has itís fair share of rough edges.

pours dark brown with tan foam. Aroma of cocoa, milk, vanilla. Medium bodied. Flavor is lightly roasted, with notes of cocoa and vanilla, caramel. Better than I expected, not bad.

It poured a dark brown color with a cream colored head. The aroma was of roasted malts mixed with chocolate and vanilla. The taste was similar. The vanilla was definitely there, but not overwhelmingly, and it gave way to some pleasant roasted bitterness. A very good Vanilla Porter.

Gription79 (2840) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - FEB 2, 2013
Poured from a 12 ounce bottle. The aroma is filled with vanilla and green apple(acetaldehyde?), slight roasted malt character. The flavor is dominated by the vanilla. There is a creamy mouth feel. Overall this is thin and bland.

You can definitely taste the vanilla - it gives the beer more sweetness than most porters. Some carmel notes as well. Very dark brown, with a medium brown head.

Carolís chili fest. Wasnít expecting to like this, but actually had a lot of good flavor and could have had a few of these. I liked the sweetness in this, a good balance with the lightly roasted malt and the sweet vanilla flavor. Wasnít too overbearing at all. Surprisingly good.
