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 (936) - 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.

Bricks (924) - 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.

Nero55 (919) - Wisconsin, USA - MAR 11, 2015
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.

thetmaxx (896) - West Sacramento, California, USA - DEC 26, 2015
Poured from the twist top bottle. Thin head. Aroma of Carmel, nutty, vanilla. Flavor is the same, the chocolate and vanilla really comes through. Maybe the best leinenkugals beer Iíve had.

bigtaster (896) - 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.

MarkSachon (877) - 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.

UPDATED: JUN 23, 2015 Smooth, delicious brew. Pours black with a smallish head. The vanilla flavor counters any bitterness, and it has a nice finish with hints of caramel and chocolate. Flavor improves as beer warms.

GnarlyGnome (852) - 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.
