A robust brew for sure, clearly good for Winter time, will surely warm your bones as you sit by the fire. Have not seen it for sale by the six pack, iíd like to try some more. Granville Island is a class act brewery , I donít think you can get their beers anywhere outside of the NorthWest and thatís a shame because a lot of people in the rest of North America and the world would love what theyíre concocting.

Draft. Deep amber pour with a couple of fingers of frothy off-white head. Aroma is caramel, vanilla, some chocolate. Similar flavour with more emphasis on the vanilla and chocolate. Definitely my favorite offering from Granville.

Bottle. I was quite surprised by this Granville offering, because it was so good. It had an aroma of vanilla and caramel. Tastes of vanilla, chocolate, coffee, and caramel. Had a nice full body with a slick feel. The aftertaste is a warming boozy vanilla, but in the best way. I would warm up with a six pack of these again.

Hazy brown pour with a very fizzy noisy head that didnít last. Interesting scent I canít quite place. Hoppy and something else, something mellow. Really dig the mouth on this one. Malty and mellow. Thereís a strong aftertaste. Still havenít... Iíve got it! Vanilla. Thatís what it is. Reminds me of an Ale version of Mill Street Vanilla Porter. Rather like this. Very easy to drink and a good reward at the end of a long day.

A darkish pour with lots of licorice aroma and aftertaste. A medium - dark brew.

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 (3303) - 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 wasnít 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. Itís 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.
