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.

HIGHB4LL (795) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - DEC 6, 2014
12 oz. bottle from Cash Wise in Watford. Appearance: finger light brown head that does not last, dark brown to blood red color, good lacing, clear. Aroma: vanilla, roast, chocolate, very light coffee notes, citrus hops on exhale. Palate: full body, average carbonation, very bitter finish, oily carbonation. Taste: sweet caramel and vanilla with slight chocolate malt, into light citrus bitter finish, Overall, pretty drinkable, interesting hop choice for the style, but nothing amazing. Not bad at all either.

Alright, this dark brown beer with a heavy vanilla-esque flavors to add to it’s chocolaely porter presence is good, although it is somewhat lacking in lasting body. Still, I liked it.

kdm1984 (780) - 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.

ExpendableHero (770) - Florida, USA - DEC 1, 2012
Cola looking beer with a white head. Weak aromas of roasted coffee. Tastes of watery coffee, some dark chocolate, cola, and very little vanilla if any. Finish is bittersweet coffee That is pretty much it, a bit one dimensional. Unoffensive, but quite bland. I wouldn’t really recommend this beer.

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

bigtaster (747) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - JAN 9, 2014
From bottle in a pint glass. Pours dark grown with two finger head. Nose is roasted barley and vanilla. Body is medium to light for a porter. Taste is sweet with a little too much vanilla for my taste, not as balanced as I would like. One dimensional beer.

jflopsu (743) - New Jersey, USA - OCT 28, 2013
Pours a dark black with light brown head. Has a faint roasted malt aroma, but not strong. A nice mixed taste of vanilla, roasted malt, coffee and chocolate. Aftertaste is similar to a vanilla latte.
