Pours dark mahogany brown with a small brown head. Smells mildly of roast and vanilla. Taste is mild sweetness, hints of roast, and kinda like soda. Medium-bodied with a wet texture and soft mouth-carbonation, Leinenkugelís Snowdrift Vanilla Porter finishes with a cloying sweetness.

Bottled. Pours dark brown with amber hues. Good sized head. Big vanilla and milk chocolate aroma. Keyword: sweet. Flavor profile matches the nose plus a light roast. Medium body, creamy texture, and a vanilla-malty sweet finish. Honestly, this is just as I expected and Iím quite pleased. Lightly roasted, heavy vanilla-d porter-brown ale.

Brown, dark, and delicious. Leinenkugelís does the dark stuff the best. Itís complex, lots of flavor crystals. The vanilla comes through, but not overwhelming - it layers well on top of the traditional porter. Full-bodied, kind of heavy, but I think itís awesome.

12 oz bottle pours a dark brown with small tan head but little lacing. Flavor is initially of roasted malts before the vanilla overpowers anything else that might be present.. 6 oz. of this would have been more enjoyable for me than 12. Body is thin to medium with lively carbonation. I was hoping for more of a porter and less vanilla extract.

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.
