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.

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 wouldnít have this again, but I didnít have an altogether negative experience with this porter.

12 ounce bottle. Pours a nice brown with a ruby red hue and a nice two inch tan head that fades quickly. Taste is roasted malt, caramel,chocolate coffee and vanilla. Similar aroma. The body is decent, a bit slick and a touch on the lighter side. Mostly clean finish. Easy to drink and rather enjoyable. A good winter beer.

pours dark brown with tan foam. Aroma of cocoa, milk, vanilla. Medium bodied. Flavor is lightly roasted, with notes of cocoa and vanilla, caramel. Better than I expected, not bad.

Draft. Dark brown/black with medium tan head. Aroma of malt sweetness, chocolate, and vanilla. Medium/light body, roasted malt, medium/heavy sweetness, strong vanilla, and a sweet finish. Too much vanilla and overly sweet.

Lemke10 (914) - Waukesha, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 8, 2013
This pours a very dark brown color with a slight head. Some there is a slight robust aroma mixed with sweet malts. The taste is decent but the volume and the vanilla flavor could use some work. Itís a little thinner than I imagined and the vanilla does stand out too much either. A fairly decent dark beer from Leineís.

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.

BillWyce (887) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 29, 2013
From notes: Poured clear nut brown with a 1-finger light tan head. Aroma of nutty malt with some vanilla behind it that quickly takes over. Body is medium, and a touch watery, with a mild astringent tingle in the finish. Flavor is nutty, maybe touches of leather and butter. The vanilla is underneath, and lingers in the back.

jflopsu (886) - 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.

Ericular (867) - 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.

Bottle. Pours a nice dark brown. Not much nose. Very watered down, but I like the vanilla. Other than that not much going on here.
