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.

Bottle. Faint roasty malt and vanilla aroma. Deep mahogany with a small beige head. Chocolate, cola, and vanilla flavor. Light body, moderate carbonation.

I think there’s a little vanilla in a lot of porters, but the focus on it here gives a yogurty, floral vibe that’s certainly tasty but serves more than anything else to make up for the lack of fullness and balance. Finish is sort of fakey and sticky. I wouldn’t turn one of these down but it’s nothing to rave about.

Pours a dark brownish black color with a small off-white head. Aroma is vanilla and chocolate malts. The taste is creamy vanilla with hints of caramel, chocolate, and coffee. It has a great aftertaste. A good overall brew.

12oz pour - Not altogether bad. Some nice maltiness with, yes, a decent amount of vanilla on the back end. Little cola like, but this exceeded my expectations.

Aside from your typical chocolate, roasted malt and coffee flavors; There is a flavor of Vanilla on the back of the palate, which isn’t as strong as one would like. There’s nothing bad about this beer but if you’re looking for a really good vanilla porter, try out Breckenridge’s Vanilla Porter instead

Bottle from PW pick a sixer. Pours a dark brown with white head. Has a sweet nose but actually has less vanilla than expected. Coffee and chocolate are up just hints and not dominant. Actually one of leinie’s better beers...maybe they will be a little more experimental going forward....ha!

SHIG (3612) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - DEC 9, 2012
Bottle: Poured a blackish with reddish edges, the head was a cream off white. The aroma is light but a bit vanilla. Taste is a chocolate, vanilla, gritty mess.

Not bad. The vanilla is dominant in the flavor but the aroma is pretty terrible. Skunky and only a bit sweet smelling. Watery and pretty drinkable.

A tasty twist on a traditional porter, but while this was a pleasant example, it wanted for a bit more vanilla to make it a standout. Vanilla and chocolate are evident and the finish is rich, just could have been better ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Beautiful dark red in color, goes down smooth, you can smell the vanilla and caramel and you can taste the vanilla and caramel with an after taste of chocolate and a hint of coffee
