COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

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.

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.

Pours brown with ruby highlights and a creamy head. Vanilla is very present, tastes artificial and overpowering. Thin for a porter. Not good.

koleminer20 (979) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - NOV 2, 2013
12 oz bottle. Pours a clear brownish red with large somewhat off-white head that reminds me of a glass of Coca-Cola in the fizzy dissipation. The aroma is that of a cheap lager, nothing more. The taste is just... Very similar. There are some slight coffee notes, and it feels like water. Holy hell. Bad ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Dark reddish brown with a tan head that dissipated quickly. Aroma of grain and malts combined with some hints of vanilla. Taste is a bit watery, of coffee and caramel notes, I donít get much vanilla; some bitterness to it. Nice drinkable beer, quite decent.

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.

Strangebrewer (970) - Chatham, Ontario, CANADA - APR 5, 2013
bottle. Poured almost black with a ruby hue and a creamy mocha head. Roasted, dark fruit aroma. Medium oily mouthfeel with tight carbonation. Toasted malt flavour with vanilla and coffee notes and a touch of smoke.

pours dark brown with tan foam. Aroma of cocoa, milk, vanilla. Medium bodied. Flavor is lightly roasted, with notes of cocoa and vanilla, caramel. Better than I expected, not bad.

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