Another winter seasonal beer that's made it's way into the Mohawk Valley is "Snowdrift Vanilla Porter" from the Jacob Leinenkugel Brewery of Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin. I've tried this one myself, and it's a very pleasant dark brew. Here's what it's all about.

Here's a description of Leinenkugel's Snowdrift Vanilla Porter, according to leinie.com:

"A fuller-bodied brew with hints of cocoa, coffee and caramel brought out by roasted malts and aged on real vanilla, our Leinenkugel's® Snowdrift Vanilla Porter® is smooth and creamy, making it ideal for winter.

Ingredients
