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.

Bottle. Aroma has notes of vanilla, chocolate, caramel, floral hops. Very dark brown that sits black in the glass. Average off-white head. Flavor is heavy sweet and medium bitter. Palate is medium bodied and watery with average carbonation. Overall an average porter which is better than what I expected.

12 oz bottle pours a dark brown with small tan head but little lacing. Flavor is initially of roasted malts before the vanilla overpowers anything else that might be present.. 6 oz. of this would have been more enjoyable for me than 12. Body is thin to medium with lively carbonation. I was hoping for more of a porter and less vanilla extract.

Pours dark mahogany brown with a small brown head. Smells mildly of roast and vanilla. Taste is mild sweetness, hints of roast, and kinda like soda. Medium-bodied with a wet texture and soft mouth-carbonation, Leinenkugelís Snowdrift Vanilla Porter finishes with a cloying sweetness.

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

Poured a very dark brown with a hint of red. Small head. Roasted nutty aroma with caramel. Some vanilla. Taste has lots of vanilla with nuts and cream. Carbonation a little high. Maybe too much vanilla, it dominates the flavor. Finish has some nice caramel flavors with a touch of coffee. Overall not bad, but too much vanilla.

Had on tap. I really like the vanilla aromas and aftertaste. Feels like this should be a bit "darker" but itís still good. One of the better winter seasonals in the upper midwest area
