Leinenkugel's Snowdrift Vanilla Porter brewed by Jacob Leinenkugel Brewing Company, with an ABV of 6.0% This brew pours out dark brown color with a nice off white head. Snowdrift Vanilla Porter has the look of cola, not saying that's a bad thing. The smell is rich with malts and grains. You also pick up on a hit of vanilla. Now for the taste, it is bold with flavor. You also pick up on tossed malts and grains. There is also a mild vanilla sweetness at the end. Leinenkugel's Snowdrift Vanilla Porter has a lot going on. The mouthfeel is bold but smooth. There is nothing overpowering in this brew, it has a nice balance to it. Overall I'm giving Leinenkugel's Snowdrift Vanilla Porter a 4 out 5. Nothing bad about this brew. I would buy this brew again. Jacob Leinenkugel Brewing Company did a nice job with this brew.

Tap

Pours a dark clear brown, tan lacing.

Smells of roasted malts and leather.

Tastes of vanilla and orange peel with a hint of cinnamon.

Medium body with a light tingly carbonation.

Good aroma, average appearance and funky flavor. Not enjoyable honestly.
