Brown, dark, and delicious. Leinenkugels does the dark stuff the best. Its complex, lots of flavor crystals. The vanilla comes through, but not overwhelming - it layers well on top of the traditional porter. Full-bodied, kind of heavy, but I think its awesome.

Poured one into a pint glass for a proper review. Pours a ruby-tinted cola color. Thin off-white head on top. Aromas of vanilla, chocolate, dry grains. Pretty basic scent, but I didnt expect much. Nothing off-putting. Moderate mouthfeel, with some carbonation bite. A little on the thin side, but in no way is this watery or slick. Again, pretty average feel. Good balance of vanilla sweetness, semi-sweet chocolate, and yeasty bread. Mild bitterness. This is an easy one to quaff. I was afraid this would be overpowering in its sweetness, but this was well balanced. A simple beer that was well-made. Id have it again.

Bottled. Pours dark brown with amber hues. Good sized head. Big vanilla and milk chocolate aroma. Keyword: sweet. Flavor profile matches the nose plus a light roast. Medium body, creamy texture, and a vanilla-malty sweet finish. Honestly, this is just as I expected and Im quite pleased. Lightly roasted, heavy vanilla-d porter-brown ale.

From a bottle. Aroma is roasty with some coffee and vanilla. Taste is roasted malts that are sugary with lots of vanilla. Medium body and carbonation. Not the worst winter beer, and not the best. Decently middle of the road.

Draught. Dark brown pour with a thin tan head. Aroma of vanilla sweetener and roasted malt. Medium body. Taste is overpoweringly sweet, almost like candy.

12 oz bottle from a friend at work. You can really taste the layers of malt they used and the vanilla is just perfect. I really think the ratings are a bit low for this fine porter.

This pours a very dark brown color with a slight head. Some there is a slight robust aroma mixed with sweet malts. The taste is decent but the volume and the vanilla flavor could use some work. Its a little thinner than I imagined and the vanilla does stand out too much either. A fairly decent dark beer from Leines.

Smooth tasting, minimal flavor. A hint of vanilla, Some chocolate notes, some caramel, just some malty flavors.

From bottle in a pint glass. Pours dark grown with two finger head. Nose is roasted barley and vanilla. Body is medium to light for a porter. Taste is sweet with a little too much vanilla for my taste, not as balanced as I would like. One dimensional beer.
