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.

The aroma of the beer is subtle, blending vanilla and roasted malts, and the appearance combines a reddish brown color with a medium light head that diminishes quickly. The taste is mildly sweet yet quite umami, which is a nice blend; furthermore, the palate’s fairly complementary due to the oily texture, medium body, soft carbonation, and a long yet muted extension of the flavor.

12 oz. bottle served in shaker- poured a transparent darkened maroon when held to the outdoor light source. One finger head disappeared as I lit up to a thin ring round the glass. Aroma of bourbon (how the hell did that get in there?), vanilla, caramel, cinnamon, and a hint of maple wood waiting to be put in the fire. Hits the mouth with a medium body, very light considering the style, some vanilla from the start with coffee pairing it at the start, holds up well in the middle, finish does get a little watery. It’ll do for watching my Packers whoop some Cali ass- GO PACK GO!

Onslow (1378) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - DEC 15, 2012
Pour from a 12oz bottle. Dark amber brew, color of root beer. Clear. Off white head. Aroma of vanilla, ethanol, roasted malts. Taste is sweet malt, roaste dmalt, a little chocolate, some vanilla and maybe a little licorice. Nice profile of burnt and dark roasted malts, but a little too sweet. Vanilla is a little over done, IMO. But quafffable and fine on a cool December eve.

12 ounce bottle. Garnet color with a small creamy beige head. Malty nose has notes of vanilla, cocoa and molasses. Flavor has roasted malt and chocolate. Thin bodied, yet flavorful. Finish is a bit watery.

Subtle vanilla aroma. Pours dark brown with a thin head. Dominant vanilla flavor to start and finish. Smooth finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: MAY 22, 2014 To its credit, Snowdrift exceeded by expectations. The roasted malt character is okay, and the color is appealing. Still, it ends up falling short. Carbonation is bothersome, vanilla flavor is underplayed, and the malts offer more bitterness than chocolate sweetness. I probably wouldn’t have this again, but I didn’t have an altogether negative experience with this porter.

ryecatcher (1337) - Bridgeport, Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 4, 2016
Bottle. Grabbed these after work at the Jewel (only place open selling beer besides the 7-11 and gas station at 10:45 Sunday night). Deep brownish-black pour, off-white head with surprisingly nice retention. Nose is puffed wheat, malt syrup, vanilla extract, Heath Bar. Mouth is kind of watery, malt, toasted bread, cocoa puffs, touch of vanilla. Actually better than I expected. $7.99 for a sixer made this a decent value purchase.

Bottle. Clear red brown beer with a large beige head. Aroma is malty with notes of caramel, vanilla, chocolate and milk. Flavor is malty with notes of caramel, vanilla, chocolate biscuits and dried fruit. Sweet and slightly unbalanced.

Dark brown pour. Coffee and burnt malt smell. Charcoal taste. Very rugged roast character. Ok
