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.

This one pours nicely, with scents of dark chocolate and a head better than 1/2" high. Its color is almost as dark as a porter can be. This one comes across slightly sweet, with little bitterness but the mouthfeel is comparatively thin. Not bad from Leinie’s but not my favorite vanilla porter.

Pours dark chocolate with a thick dark foam. Initial taste of cocoa with a mild vanilla middle taste. Very light for a vanilla porter with a smooth finish ---Rated via Beer Buddy

Pours a black color with tan head. Vanilla, chocolate, coffee, and some caramel on the nose, very aromatic; follows onto the palate. Finishes with a little sweetness.

From the bottle...smooth and creamy flavor...I enjoyed it. It was different, with hints of vanilla

A nice beer but has a medicine type ending. Good vanilla aroma. Nice head. Balanced a bit thin. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Had on tap. I really like the vanilla aromas and aftertaste. Feels like this should be a bit "darker" but it’s still good. One of the better winter seasonals in the upper midwest area

Dark with orange highlights and clear. Creamy looking head. Chocolate and roasted malt nose. Rich palate, sweet, full, just a tiny vanilla taste at the end, the way I like it. (gas statiion growler, thanks Bob!)

Bottle. Deep rich brown color with a faint creamy head. Light malty aroma. Smooth roasted malt taste with a hint of vanilla and some coffee. Slightly sweet with a pleasant full feel in the mouth. I like my porters a bit more robust, but this is a nice variation on the standard porter style.

2012 12 oz bottle with a 2013 date on the neck. Pours a clear, dark reddish-brown with a small but durable tan head. Good (restrained) level of vanilla, although rather pronounced mid-taste. Excellent, malty/nutty aftertaste. Good sweet/bitter balance. Medium+ body with lively, moderate carbonation. O: This excellent seasonal was a pleasant surprise. Perhaps my favorite Leinie.

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.
