Rated based on notes taken on 26 Dec 2014 -- Honestly this is my favorite Leinenkugel beer. Decent vanilla porter for sure.

A deep dark body with a creamy head. Aroma is faint, almost nonexistent. Slight coffee and sweetness. Taste is also subtle coffee and and caramel, not much vanilla . Finish is clean, was expecting more.

12oz bottle pours a murky, deep brown with some clumpy, eggshell head. Nose has, well, obviously a whole lot of vanilla, some malt, some chocolate, some pumpernickel bread. Flavor follows, loads of vanilla, molasses, chocolate, bread crust, some cream soda, but mostly lots and lots of vanilla. Full, creamy finish.

Black pour. Virtually no head. Slightly bitter taste. Vanilla comes in late. Some toffee too. Not complex. Pretty light for a porter. Not completely offensive but decidedly average.

on tap @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Clear very dark brown, beige head that slowly drops to a head cover, dots and spots of lace. Taste is lightly toasted malt with a bit of vanilla that turns a little bitter on the swallow, and then cruises through a fairly short finish. Agreeable to drink, but somewhat thin and watery, and quite forgettable.

Not normally a porter drinker, prefer stouts. However, this one was smooth, sure it was a tad sweet, However, I welcome the unique change of pace. Clearly this is a home run.

IndianaRed (3485) - Boise, Idaho, USA - DEC 23, 2014
Bottle pours a clear dark brown with a thin light tan head. Light sweet dark malt aroma. Leather and damp earth with some caramel and wet brown paper. Flavors are a sweet faded tootsie roll. A little coffee at the end, and shot a dozen IBUs or so. Lacking some of the needed bite at the end. A bit disappointing, but I suppose easy drinking fof folks that think they like "dark beers"
