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.

Okay, this one isnít so much a beer as it is a high end vanilla latte. But I for one, can appreciate that- the vanilla bean is strong in this one, and if you pour it into a glass, you can even see the remnants of the actual bean. Super rich layers, a lovely seasonal from Leinenkugels.

UPDATED: FEB 17, 2013 on tap...Very deep mahogany colored beer when held against the light. Thin beige head. slight Nose of vanilla extract. plesent vanilla flavor with a little bit of the artificial taste that I get in some of the vanilla porters. Some caramel sweetness, milk chocolate, and faint roasted grains, . As is warms there is some burnt caramel corn notes. Not a bad use of vanilla in beer. I really enjoyed this beer on tap more than in the bottle.

Pours a dark brown body with a frothy white head. Mild chocolate, vanilla, coffee, and general roastiness. At $5.99/12 on closeout, this is the best value purchase Iíve made in a long time.

Draft at Ted Montana in Chicago. Was expecting alot less, have never had to much luck with vanilla porters, but this beer was great! Aroma is faint and missing some body, but very smooth and wonderful vanilla finish.

Bottle pours mahogany with nice tan head. Malty aroma with flavors of dark, but not overly sweet fruits, lightly toasted malts, and spices (nutmeg, cinnamon). Decent winter ale, light on the palate and very smooth.

I had to spend $14 for a twelve pack just to try this so I hope itís worth it - pours like a coke - aroma of vanilla and yeast - high carbonation detracts from the light vanilla and the roasted malt is pretty far in the back but itís not terrible.. not great and with a little less carbonation it would be better

Oil brown pour with a thin cream head. The flavor is a bit weak... only faint vanilla and a thin body.

the faintest of the vanilla aRoma. Dark black pour. Small head. Not much vanilla or anything else in terms of flavor. Weak carbonation. Light and a bit creamy. Not a good Porter but easy enough to drink.

Dark brown pour with some cherry on the side of the glass. Medium tan head with mild lacing. Malty aroma. Chocolate and coffee coming through the most. Relatively light mouthfeel for a porter. Flavor starts off with vanilla. Nutty chocolate and coffee. Finishes with peanut flavor. ---Rated via iPhone

You can definitely taste the vanilla - it gives the beer more sweetness than most porters. Some carmel notes as well. Very dark brown, with a medium brown head.
