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.

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.

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.

mnmike (1075) - Minnesota, USA - NOV 25, 2012
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

Dark brown pour with small tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, cocoa and vanilla. Tastes of roasted malts, slight coffee, faint chocolate and vanilla. Medium bodied with perfect carbonation, very good porter.

matthewjk (1051) - San Diego, California, USA - DEC 9, 2012
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.

vikingguy (1050) - Chaska, Minnesota, USA - DEC 3, 2012
Pours dark brown with quick diminshing brown head. Sweet caramel malt and vanilla on the nose. Mellow chocolate malt, roasted malt and vanilla. Pretty much what youíd expect. Soft mouthfeel and smooth drinking. Fairly creamy texture. Better than I expected because the vanilla, while fairly prominent is not as overpowering than other vanilla porters Iíve had. Porters donít excite me and this in not exception but itís definitely decent and one Iíd drink occassionally in the winter months.
