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.

Simple flavor. Not very complex and not a very true porter. Its drinkable and offers decent flavor.

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!

TizzleJizzle (621) - Garland, Texas, USA - JAN 18, 2013
Bottle at a party. Poured a dark mahogany with a white top that lasted throughout but little to no lacing. Taste of nuts (either pecan or hazelnut), vanilla, cream soda, caramel malts, and slight coco and sweet malts. Nicely carbonated. All in all, nothing special but not bad

Funny, I love vanilla, and I love a good, malty porter. They are birds of a feather, sweet, dark, aromatic, but somehow they never work together for me. No different in this one, I keep thinking, "what would it taste like without the vanilla?

wmubronco1992 (617) - Coldwater, Michigan, USA - FEB 14, 2013
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.

Ericular (613) - Minnesota, USA - MAY 18, 2013
From a bottle. Aroma is roasty with some coffee and vanilla. Taste is roasted malts that are sugary with lots of vanilla. Medium body and carbonation. Not the worst winter beer, and not the best. Decently middle of the road.

Nice tasty Porter. Pour is black with no head. Delicious flavor of light roasted malt.

dp (608) - uniontown, Ohio, USA - NOV 4, 2012
roasty, chocolate, vanilla, all together in a rich aroma, brown, tan foam, light sweetness, medium body, sweet aftertaste on lips of vanilla, not too filling, enjoyable

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
