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.

From the bottle, pours black with a short off white head. Aroma is light, but distinctly chocolate, some vanilla. Smooth, rich tastes of milk chocolate, vanilla beans, whipped cream and marshmallows. Subtle porter flavors and more like a stout. This is really good on a cold day.

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!

Bottle. Pours dark brown. Small tan head. Aroma of sweet chocolate. Flavor of vanilla and chocolate with coco on the back end. Low carbonation. Very dry finish. Overall a decent beer. Biggest negative is that its a bit thin.

kdm1984 (586) - Missouri, USA - NOV 20, 2013
Vanilla aroma with some chocolate malt in the background. Taste follows suit, but mostly vanilla. Watery palate as usual with Leinenkugel’s. Actually was a little better than I expected overall, though. Easy and pleasant enough to drink.

Bottle. Pours a dark walnut brown with ruby highlights and a thin tan head. Aroma is nutty sweetness and roasted malt. Flavor is dark roasted malt, caramel and vanilla lingering all the way through the finish. Medium bodied with light carbonation and an almost syrupy mouthfeel. It’s a good seasonal if a bit overpowering with the vanilla.

12 oz. Bottle. A one dimensional brew that reminded me of Altwater’s Vanilla Porter. Just a lot of vanilla and not much else. Sickeningly sweet.

LetsGoState (563) - Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 2, 2012
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.

Bricks (556) - Delaware, USA - JAN 24, 2014
Dark beer with a slight amber hue. Aroma is neutral, somewhat metallic. Mouthfeel is very smooth, just a hint of bitter fizzy. Tastes like molasses, malty, and vanilla. Good beer.

Pours a dark red-brown with a small head. Smells of caramel, chocolate, toast. Taste is sweet and mildly bitter, chocolate, bread, flowery hops.
