UPDATED: DEC 14, 2013 This is a PINO: Porter In Name Only.
I’m a fan of Porters and realize that enjoying a good Porter is an "acquired taste", but what a disappointment. It was only after buying this that I discovered that Leinenkugel is only a front for Miller SAB’s futile attempt to pretend they can be a Craft Brewery.
Appearance looked OK, but it went downhill from there. Watery with a Kool Aid aroma. Tastes like something that Robitussin would make if they owned a brewery.
Mix up some Milwaukee’s Best with your leftover coffee from this morning. It would be cheaper. rougeau13 (3015) - Richmond, Texas, USA - DEC 13, 2013
Clear dark brown with beige head. Aroma of fruity pebbles, vanilla and roast. Taste is fruity pebbles sweetness with some roasty bitterness. Pretty thin. This is not good. NIZZLE (1) - Michigan, USA - DEC 12, 2013 does not count
I like it better out of a can dose that make my crazy? One of leinenkygels better beers. gizmo_ber (190) - Steinwenden, GERMANY - DEC 10, 2013
Not very full bodied for a porter, and the vanilla tastes strong, but artificial. I’d prefer if it was hinted at in a more full body beer. Mora2000 (6158) - 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.

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. snoworsummer (5698) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - DEC 8, 2013
Draft. Pours dark brown with creamy beige head. Aroma is strong vanilla, roasted malts, light earthy notes, and plums. Flavor is dry malts, some vanilla and dark fruit sweetness, with light ash. Feels thin throughout with a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation. Nuffield (4171) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - DEC 7, 2013
I didn’t fimd anything especially wrong with this, except that it wasn’t very good. The palate--acceptable for a porter. The flavor--not the most elegant vanilla or porter. The aroma--rather dull. But then, this is a brewery that is aiming for a different of the craft beer market than where I am at. Bottle. booshaka (8) - oviedo, Florida, USA - DEC 7, 2013 does not count
Opens weak. Pours like a lager. Not as strong as a vanilla porter should be. Very lil head. Wouldnt recomend this to true porter fans. brucebruce81 (391) - GUAM - DEC 5, 2013
This beer had an interesting flavor it was a coffee flavor but with vanilla, it's like a girly Starbucks drink.
