Excellent beer. Great smell and color. The taste of vanilla is not overpowering and adds to the strong chocolate flavor. I was pleased this porter was not bitter, nor did it have a strong coffee flavor to it, as some porters of this kind(chocolate) tend to do. It has instantly become one of my winter favorites.

Bottle to pint glass. My wife actually picked this one up looking to try something new and mild for herself. She's not a hophead and was willing to share it with me. Not much of a head nor any decent lace left behind. The vanilla is apparent, decent aroma. Taste was fine, sort of reminding me of root beer with less carbonation. Mouthfeel was good and aftertaste didn't linger much. Overall, I fine beer and I could drink a handful, no problem.

A - Pours a nice chocolate with 1 finger tan head. Retention is average

S - Hints of chocolate and vanilla. Also a slight lingering smokiness to the beer

T - Doesnt dissappoint. The vanilla is present but not overpowering. It has a nice chocolate and nutty background. Like the aroma there is a very slight smokiness to the beer

M - Lighter than it looks. Would call it on the light side of medium body. Slick in the mouth.

O - A good solid offering by Leinenkugel. Its nothing fancy, but is tasty nonetheless. Will definately do in a pinch
