From a growler. Pours a very nice burnt amber colour, short but creamy head. Aroma has a very pleasant sweetness to it, and almost like a faint nutmeg. Flavour is absolutely superb; a candy-like sweetness but not overpowering, toasty nuts, vanilla. I would drink this with a piece of fruitcake beside an open fire and consider myself well and truly ready to die happy. Superb.

Pours a brownish red colour with a nice big white head but if you look away you might miss it as it doesn’t last long. Smells of chocolate mint tastes sweet, caramel, slightly burnt with light chocolate notes. Tasty from time to time. I hear it was better before molson/coors bought them up but I have nothing to compare it to. One of granvilles better beers.

BreWedge (421) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 28, 2012
On tap @ Churchill’s Ottawa. Pours a clear, deep chestnut brown, thin off-white head. Aroma is dark chocolate. Taste is like a Black Forest cake in a glass (semi-sweet chocolate, dark cherries, vanilla) and a little nuttiness on the back end. Very light body and mild/short bitter finish. Fascinating beer but definitely a dessert kind of beer, not for a session.

Wow...something good by Granville. Quite good in fact. Smells like pure unadulterated chocoate milk. Very cool. Flavours are sweet milk chocolate and mint. What a refreshing beer. Really liked it.

I really liked the chocolate and mint aroma of this beer, though the taste was not as strong. Very enjoyable beer.

UPDATED: NOV 22, 2013 By far the best thing Granville Island has ever come up with. Dark brown/amber colour with white head, though fading quite quickly. Initially aroma of mint chocolate, vanilla, maybe some cinnamon. Taste is sweet and malty milk chocolate with a touch of a bitter aftertaste. GI should come up with more stuff like this in order to improve their reputation. Re-rate: I don’t care what anyone says, this is a damn fine beer.
