Dark Reddish brown color with light brown big bubbled head that fizzes off quickly leaving a light rim

Lots of vanilla bean smell with a lightly roasted coffee smell lingering in the background.

It had a light vanilla taste along with some coffee and malt. It was a fairly balanced beer, but it felt like something was missing to give me something to remember it.

The feel was pretty light with a large amount of carbonation. It still went down smooth, but there just wasn't much to this beer for what you would expect coming from the name.

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.
