lacyhead (20) - Burlington, Ontario, CANADA - APR 14, 2014
Pours dark copper colour with small off-white head. Aroma is chocolate, as is the initial taste. Taste then goes to a slightly sour bitterness and back to chocolate. Palate is a bit thin.

Kinz (3189) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - MAR 23, 2014
Sample kindly poured by the staff at Saracoa, cheers to them. Poured a medium to deep clear amber. Nose was quite chocolatey. Flavor was caramel malt followed by a chocolate finish. Quite shocking in that the chocolate was so clear, yet there wasn’t any of the traditional roasted notes that you would typically find. Slightly sweet. Would have made for an interesting desert beer. Not bad at all. Probably good that it was just a heavy sample, as a full glass may have been a bit much.

Good beer nice chocolate, vanilla aroma. Goes down easy, its nothing spectacular but still a alright beer. Probably pair good with a orange based dessert.

Aroma is hard to put your finger on. Hints of vanilla and coffee. Taste like a vanilla coke almost. It’s a decent winter ale. Definatly unique.

Quite a distinctive vanilla flavor. I probably wouldn't have bought it but where I live there is little to no interesting beers. Glad I tried it. I will buy it again.

MunBro (133) - St. Albert, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 3, 2014
Aroma of stale chocolate, funk, caramel, and malts. Dark clear amber pour. Taste is heavily of vanilla with some stale chocolate, spices, with a watery malt aftertaste. I have no real complaints about this one other than it having a very odd palate and being a bit watery.

mmacleod75 (105) - Ontario, CANADA - MAR 1, 2014
Poured dark copper brown with medium frothy head. Heavy chocolate aroma. Same chocolate flavour with some vanilla, and a bit of coffee. I found the chocolate too overpowering to be enjoyable.
