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.

Tap at Brink. Amber-brown, stained glass. Creamy beige head. The vanilla is huge and overpowering, really the only thing going on. Medium bodied, very easy to drink for the ABV, probably because it is so sweet. Too sweet to go back for more, not a quality offering. My score seems way too high.

12 ounce. Thin sort of porter body with fairly strong vanilla taste. The vanilla, though, doesnít blend blend well with rest of beer and leaves an artificial taste.

Patrickctenchi (5210) - Coxís Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - OCT 26, 2012
Pours deep brown with red backlights.....short, whipped, tan head. Scent is malt, vanilla..a little nutty. Taste is chocolate and vanilla....creamy. A little bit thin, but a very nice, sweet flavour....a nice dessert beer...and a bargain for the price.

heemer77 (5210) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - NOV 6, 2012
Bottle. Nearly black colored body with a very thin light tan head. A leathery nose of cherries and vanilla. There is also coffee to complement with some roast. A thin and highly carbonated body has a slick smooth feeling in the mouth. This tastes of vanilla noted medium roast coffee. There is also some bit of milk chocolate. Actually, this is nicely done with some subtle vanilla. Better than expected.

bytemesis (5178) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - JUN 26, 2013
Bottle. Pours clear brown, small beige head, some lacing. Aroma is roasty, vanilla, toffee. Flavor is the same, medium sweet, obvious vanilla. Kind of like vanilla soda. Light body, soda like carb.

BrewDad (5120) - Olympia, Washington, USA - DEC 25, 2012
Dark brown in color, tan head. Nice aroma a tad light with the vanilla but the porter malts come through nicely. Nice flavor this was a good after dinner beer or a good pasta beer.

ben4321 (5076) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - NOV 30, 2012
Location: 12 oz bottle from Oak Tree, 11/30/12

Aroma: The nose has some chocolate malts, roast, and a pretty good amount of vanilla
Appearance: This beer pours a dark brown color with a small beige head and almost no lace
Flavor: The taste has even more vanilla then the nose, with the other malts moving into the background. It comes off rather sweet, with a little roast, chocolate, and just a hint (of hardly noticeable) bitterness.
Palate: It is medium bodied, though itís quite sweet, its not particularly sticky, but it does feel a little too fizzy
Overall Impression: I thought this was a pretty decent one. Considering that it is from Leiney, I wasnít expecting much, but it turned out alright. Itís a little too sweet and a little too fizzy for me, but it has some nice components. Decent stuff, not great, but it exceeded my expectations.

thornecb (5017) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 1, 2013
Pours mahogany into a shaker. Tan head with good retention recedes leaving spot lacing to coat surface. Vanilla and roasted nut aromas. Medium bodied and dry with upfront vanilla turning to crisp nutmeat in the lasting earthy finish.

AirForceHops (4994) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - FEB 10, 2015
12 oz. bottle. Darker brown / almost black color. Aroma is pure vanilla extract and light chocolate notes. The body is thin even for Porter standards. Vanilla extract though the sip without much else backing it up. Light cocoa powder, carbonation needs to be tuned down, touch to fizzy. Drinkable not overly sweet but not much to it.
