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.

Funny, I love vanilla, and I love a good, malty porter. They are birds of a feather, sweet, dark, aromatic, but somehow they never work together for me. No different in this one, I keep thinking, "what would it taste like without the vanilla?

Overall... OK. The flavor profile is a little lack. Kind of a pill taste at the back of the throat. Again its OK but there are better vanilla porters out there.

bottle. brown with small head. vanilla is more subtle than I expected. somewhat thin flavor profile overall. some smokiness and faint chocolate. not bad, but inferior to other vanilla porters Iíve had from Atwater or Breckenridge.

Bottle. Deep rich brown color with a faint creamy head. Light malty aroma. Smooth roasted malt taste with a hint of vanilla and some coffee. Slightly sweet with a pleasant full feel in the mouth. I like my porters a bit more robust, but this is a nice variation on the standard porter style.

Pours dark brown with quick diminshing brown head. Sweet caramel malt and vanilla on the nose. Mellow chocolate malt, roasted malt and vanilla. Pretty much what youíd expect. Soft mouthfeel and smooth drinking. Fairly creamy texture. Better than I expected because the vanilla, while fairly prominent is not as overpowering than other vanilla porters Iíve had. Porters donít excite me and this in not exception but itís definitely decent and one Iíd drink occassionally in the winter months.

Poured a deep brown/black with a very small head. Nose had hints of the vanilla with a heavy roast. A little lively on the tongue, the flavor is actually a little sweet at first then a heavier smoky malt with the advertised chocolate notes comes in at the end. Nice sipper at the end if the day. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aroma is a sweet chocolate malt. Taste is a little bit of toasted malt with some coffee, vanilla, and chocolate. Overall good just not enough flavor.

Dark with orange highlights and clear. Creamy looking head. Chocolate and roasted malt nose. Rich palate, sweet, full, just a tiny vanilla taste at the end, the way I like it. (gas statiion growler, thanks Bob!)

Holy goodness, I love this style of porter! Roasted coffee and vanilla aroma. Taste is similar, with the addition of vanilla and chocolate. Very dark with off-white head, some lacing. Very well done, and my favorite vanilla porter, perhaps with the exception of Atwater Blockís Vanilla Java Porter. Lots of breweries make attempts at this but most of their offerings just donít seem to nail it, in my opinion. Complex but easy-drinking and downright delicious.
