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.

trujahwarrior (509) - Monroe, Washington, USA - DEC 9, 2013
12oz bottle pours a clear dark brown with a fizzy tan head that faded and leaves decent lacing. Smell of roasted malt, dark fruit, caramel, chocolate and vanilla. Tastes of all the same things in the smell. Mouthfeel is medium and watery with light carbonation. This was pretty average for a porter. I like that they used vanilla. The appearance and mouthfeel hurt it. I’d still drink it again though.

Mora2000 (5893) - McKinney, Texas, USA - DEC 9, 2013
Dark brown-red with a white head. The aroma is fairly faint but I get a hint of vanilla and some chocolate. The flavor has some artificial vanilla notes as well as some toasted malt, nuts and chocolate. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

TreborWhip (393) - Reading, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 23, 2013
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.

Ron (2829) - Rochester, New York, USA - DEC 23, 2013
Bottle. Dark brown pour, small tan head. It has a pleasant aroma dominated by the roasted malt. The flavor is sweet with chocolate and vanilla notes. It’s like a good Vanilla Porter that has been watered down a bit.

stevoj (2553) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JAN 11, 2014
Not bad. Vanilla in the aroma doesn’t mix as well as it does in the taste. Sweetness at first made me think of a baltic porter, but roast grains( and bitterness) are present under the vanilla. Slight bitterness on the palate, and overall mouthfeel is just a touch on the watery side. Otherwise, better than I expected.

Ed5388 (2410) - Forked River, New Jersey, USA - JAN 15, 2014
12oz bottle from Crossroads Spirits. Pour a thin clear dark brown color with a small fast fading foamy khaki head. Aroma of roasted coffee, dark cocoa, ash, but not getting any vanilla in the aroma. Taste of burnt coffee, bitter dark chocolate, ash, and a hint of vanilla extract in the aftertaste.

RobertDale (3923) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - JAN 16, 2014
12 ounce bottle. Pours dark brown with a decent beige head. Aroma of malt, chocolate, caramel, and vanilla. Taste is sweet malt, chocolate, caramel, vanilla, and a bit of coffee. Finish is dry. Kind of thin for a porter. Easy enough to drink.
