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.

Bottle. Pours dark brown. Small tan head. Aroma of sweet chocolate. Flavor of vanilla and chocolate with coco on the back end. Low carbonation. Very dry finish. Overall a decent beer. Biggest negative is that its a bit thin.

Simple flavor. Not very complex and not a very true porter. Its drinkable and offers decent flavor.

LetsGoState (654) - Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 2, 2012
Aroma is a sweet chocolate malt. Taste is a little bit of toasted malt with some coffee, vanilla, and chocolate. Overall good just not enough flavor.

airrick2003 (638) - 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

twindadplus2 (625) - 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.

EHopper (620) - Minnesota, USA - DEC 7, 2012
Funny, I love vanilla, and I love a good, malty porter. They are birds of a feather, sweet, dark, aromatic, but somehow they never work together for me. No different in this one, I keep thinking, "what would it taste like without the vanilla?

From a bottle. Slightly spicy watery and bland porter with a touch of vanilla. Very light mouthfeel. Not offensive but forgettable.
