I've tested over a dozen porters. This is the best hands down...

This has a sweet taste, but not too sweet. Doesn't have a bitter ash trey taste like some porters and goes down smooth. The consistency between the bottle and the tap is very close as well.

What is not to like. The vanilla is not over-powering, the color is spectacular and the taste can't be beat. Tonight I am going to be drinking a lot of this one! Anything Leinenkugel's makes is going to be awesome and this is no exception. I wish I was drinking this right now!

Best beer I have had in a long time as good as yingling black and tan but with a vanilla hint and great price 7.99 to 8.99 I first tried it on tap and was very pleased from BWW bufflo wild wings after that I looked all over town to find it in the stores but only one place had it left end of season and man was it good on ice for one hour outside in the snow and went down nice and quick

This porter is one of my recent taste tests that really scored big. I usually don't like dark beers but have recently started to broaden my beer knowledge and tasting experience.

The beer has a dark cola like appearance when poured into a glass with a decent tan colored head. The smell has a coffee and chocolate blend. I don't smell the vanilla but it does come out in the taste.

I admit to not liking a beer with a hoppy taste. This is probably why I do like this beer, more flavor from malts and chocolate with a hint of vanilla. It is very smooth and easy to relax and drink.
