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.

Dark pour with a little head. Heavy vanilla with malt in both aroma and taste. No lacing bottle.

ExpendableHero (774) - 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.

GnarlyGnome (773) - Fairfield, Ohio, USA - APR 12, 2013
Bottle: pours a dark brown with a tiny tan head. Roasty vanilla chocolate aromas and the flavor is much of the same. Wish there was more of a "bite" to the roastiness, but it’s still a decent beer.

Nice dark color and average head. Vanilla is not overly sweet some Carmel sand toasted hints.

HuskerTan (766) - Kearney, Nebraska, USA - DEC 27, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 30, 2013 Bottle. A- Coffee, chocolate, vanilla, molasses. A- Black color, dark liquid, tan head. T- Malty, coffee tones, hints of vanilla. P- Full body, thick texture, flat carbonation, bitter finish. O- A strong tasting porter. The coffee tones take away from all the other tones that are in this beer.

12 oz bottle from a friend at work. You can really taste the layers of malt they used and the vanilla is just perfect. I really think the ratings are a bit low for this fine porter.

Bricks (745) - Delaware, USA - JAN 24, 2014
Dark beer with a slight amber hue. Aroma is neutral, somewhat metallic. Mouthfeel is very smooth, just a hint of bitter fizzy. Tastes like molasses, malty, and vanilla. Good beer.

Nsanders (737) - St Paul, Minnesota, USA - DEC 29, 2013
Bottle. Deep red brown with almost no head. Vanilla, very malty, clay, light earthy hop and water. Taste is lightly sweet. Body is watery. Typical Leinies, drinkable but safe.

TizzleJizzle (731) - 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

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!
