mcberko (6017) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 20, 2010
UPDATED: MAR 6, 2010 Pours dark amber with a small head. Aroma is vanilla and white chocolate, with subtler nutmeg and cinnamon. Flavour is much the same, with a dominating vanilla aftertaste - quite smooth.

turboespresso (256) - Port Moody, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 17, 2010
On tap. Dark copper-brown with almost no head or lacing apparent. Slight vanilla aroma. Taste is likewise, with vanilla and spices apparent. Medium bodied. Not very lively. Not very hoppy either. This beer was okay but nothing special.

Bottle. Pours a reddish amber colour with a thin white disappearing head. Sweet aroma of vanilla. Tastes of vanilla, some malts, and a bit of earthy hop bitterness. Finishes crisp and bitter. Very interesting flavor.

UPDATED: APR 3, 2012 Used to be a great beer, but has gone downhill in the past few years. Some vanilla/cream notes, but overall a generic beer.

darrennelson12 (358) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 19, 2009
UPDATED: OCT 25, 2011 On tap; nice golden, auburn color. Taste of strong vanilla notes followed by caramel and subtle milk chocolate, very easy drinking. I found the beer to be good as a one off, but probably would not drink multiple pints at a time as it is quite sweet.

Draft. Pours a great brown with tan head. Aromas are great, lots of sweet malts. The vanilla on the finish is very strong, but not cloyingly sweet. Really great, could put away quite a few of these.
