Patrickctenchi (4120) - 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.

ben4321 (4114) - 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.

Mild pecan nose. Clear ruby black, medium tan, good lace. Vanilla dominant, kibble underneath. Doughy finish. Medium body, moderate carbonation. Mild residual sweetness that isnít too off-putting. Good.

Poured a brown color with aromas of light vanilla, some roast and a touch of earth. Flavors are the same, thin mouth feel.

Butters (3863) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JUL 15, 2013
Dark clear brown pour with mahogany highlights and ring of dark khaki head. Nose is a little twinge of tootsie roll, but not horribly so. Flavor is a bit more complex with caramel and hints of vanilla muddled between the roasty cocoa. Moderately carbonated gives a slight prickle to the tongue which prevents it from being overly sweet or syrupy. One of the better leinenkugels iíve had.

nearbeer (3849) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 1, 2012
12 oz. Deep chocolate color with a lasting film of sticky cream on top. Nose is light berry, a touch of coffee, chocolate, and vanilla. Taste is a bolder version of the same pleasant mix, with the vanilla taking the lead and a touch of ash on the finish. Medium body is to the sweet side, but not sticky and really rather drinkable.
