A pretty straightforward porter with vanilla character. A bit thin, but definitely has drinkibility.

Finhead (1669) - OFallon, Illinois, USA - NOV 1, 2012
Dark brown with some crimson highlights and a tan head. The aroma has slightly roasted vanilla with some mild coffee. It has a medium body with sticky texture and average carbonation. The taste is roasted with coffee flavor and a dry finish.

Pours dark brown. Flavor really throws you with this one -- it smells like a pretty standard porter, with some chocolate and darker malts (although there really isnt much there) -- but the flavor brings in root beer and vanilla cream soda. It has a really weird artificial sweetness that doesnt do it any good. This tastes more like a novelty beverage youd get for a college party than it does like something they put a good amount of effort into. The vanilla is too sweet and artificial, and doesnt add much complexity. Really more like a soda than a beer.

UPDATED: MAY 22, 2014 To its credit, Snowdrift exceeded by expectations. The roasted malt character is okay, and the color is appealing. Still, it ends up falling short. Carbonation is bothersome, vanilla flavor is underplayed, and the malts offer more bitterness than chocolate sweetness. I probably wouldnt have this again, but I didnt have an altogether negative experience with this porter.

Beerenberger (1602) - Fischer, Texas, USA - NOV 26, 2012
Aroma is rather barnyardish. Pours a brownish black with a none lasting tan head and minimal lacing. The taste is malt followed by a vanilla blast. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Overall, very enjoyable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Surprisingly tasty! Velvety smooth on the palate w/ very good chocolate aroma that draws you in. The pour is a average - dark brown w/ a thin tan head that leaves little lacing. The taste is dominated by the chocolate but it works & is quite a good beer!
