Beer

Snowdrift

Last night, we braved the sub-zero temperatures for a family bowling night with friends.  The wee ones had a blast and so did the adults.  My score could have been better but I wasn’t really there to compete.  Taking a bowling class in college to fulfill a Phy Ed credit and then bowling once every 2.7 years does not exactly qualify me for any bragging rights.  I was just there to enjoy myself and after our server suggested this lovely porter to me, my enjoyment level kicked up a few notches.

Here are the details from the Leine’s page:

Leinenkugel’s® Snowdrift Vanilla Porter™ is brewed with a select blend of seven malts revealing layers of caramel, chocolate and coffee notes. Aged on real vanilla, this brown and ruby-hued brew imparts a slightly spicy aroma from its creamy body that’s ideal for the season.

Hmm..caramel…chocolate…coffee…and vanilla…

It’s truly a mystery as to why I liked it so much.  *smiles*

Here is a little look-see:

Doesn’t it look dee-licious?  I’m a fan of the dark side of beers so this has officially been added to my list of favorites.  It’s seasonal so best to get while the gettin’ is good.  With snowdrifts all around, it seems rather fitting.  Cheers!
