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.

twindadplus2 (602) - Wisconsin, USA - NOV 28, 2012
Bottle. Pours a dark walnut brown with ruby highlights and a thin tan head. Aroma is nutty sweetness and roasted malt. Flavor is dark roasted malt, caramel and vanilla lingering all the way through the finish. Medium bodied with light carbonation and an almost syrupy mouthfeel. It’s a good seasonal if a bit overpowering with the vanilla.

bigtaster (591) - 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.

Bricktop86 (584) - Moore, Oklahoma, USA - NOV 19, 2012
Pours dark brown with red highlights. Aroma is roasted malts with some sour notes. Taste is typical porter up front that quickly fades to vanilla that quickly fades to nothing.

arondee (583) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - DEC 9, 2012
Pours a dark brownish black color with a small off-white head. Aroma is vanilla and chocolate malts. The taste is creamy vanilla with hints of caramel, chocolate, and coffee. It has a great aftertaste. A good overall brew.

PGHbeer77 (571) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 24, 2012
12 oz. Bottle. A one dimensional brew that reminded me of Altwater’s Vanilla Porter. Just a lot of vanilla and not much else. Sickeningly sweet.

drdisque (570) - Illinois, USA - DEC 16, 2013
From a bottle. Slightly spicy watery and bland porter with a touch of vanilla. Very light mouthfeel. Not offensive but forgettable.

HuskerTan (569) - Holdrege, 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.

Nsanders (568) - 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.

odinstyr (564) - Hamilton, New Jersey, USA - DEC 29, 2012

airrick2003 (540) - Louisiana, USA - APR 14, 2013
Appearance: deep dark maroon color, clear, practically black, thin tan head that fades quickly, laces poorly Aroma: chocolate, coffee, kind of faint for a porter Taste: coffee, chocolate, perhaps a hint of plum, not much bitterness, but there is some Palate: lively carbonation, very faint bitter aftertaste that lingers for a bit Overall: not much to this beer, it’s kind of a weak and uncomplex version of a porter, nothing too great about this beer
