COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Ericular (739) - 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.

TizzleJizzle (726) - 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

GnarlyGnome (721) - 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 itís still a decent beer.

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

HuskerTan (702) - 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.

MarkSachon (698) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 5, 2013
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.

dwm1034 (692) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 9, 2012
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 leinieís better beers...maybe they will be a little more experimental going forward....ha!

Bricks (691) - 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 (670) - 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.
