The vanilla could be more authentic, and the malt base isn't quite dark enough, but it's not bad for a Leinenkugel's brew at this price point. Somewhat inexpressive, plain, and shallow, but above average and drinkable.

Declines severely with age.

C+

Pours a dark ruby red that looks like black. Khaki head that disappears quickly. Hardly any lacing. Smells of vanilla extract and coffee beans. Taste follows the smell but is very weak. Feels very light. I think it's a porter for people that don't like craft beer. If you have actually had a legit porter you'd probably think this is like "porter light". Sorry to be pretentious but it wasn't great. I'd drink it for free but wouldn't pay for it.

Pretty much what you would expect. It's got it's highs and lows but at the end of the day it's a one and done for me.
