Pouring to a dark brown hue with a nice head of beige- colored foam, Leinenkugel Snowdrift has an aromatic nose of vanilla, cocoa, and light roast. The foam maintains a thin layer after it settles, but leaves no lacing.
With the taste, this porter features flavors of chocolate, vanilla, caramel, and some roasted notes. The body of the beer is medium to light with a creamy feel and a sweetness that attempts to balance with a hit of bitterness in the end, but remains mostly sweet. The finish is mostly clean.
This vanilla porter is a little less vanilla- enhanced than I expected, but is still features an obvious vanilla taste that is pleasant overall. It doesn’t have that fresh, 100 percent natural vanilla taste and character common to other vanilla- enhanced craft beers, but it is still fairly good. It’s a nice beer to settle down with on a relaxing winter evening.
