DuffMan (7037) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 25, 2010
Bottle. Clear dark amber, medium almond head. Sweet burnt sugar and vanilla aroma. Flavour is the same, with some maple notes as well. Pleasant enough flavours, but I agree that it has a "coffee shop" syrup quality to it. Underlying beer is a bit thin. Alright, but nothing I’d come back to.

patricks110 (1780) - Alberta, CANADA - NOV 6, 2010
Not a bad beer, but tastes overly fake with the vanilla and spices. I wish this beer was about 7% ABV and had real vanilla aroma and taste instead of fake vanilla extract. Otherwise, this beer is pretty average but quite drinkable overall.

fiulijn (15370) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 20, 2010
Draught at the taproom
Dark amber color; creamy head. Do I smell vanilla? It’s quite artificial. Light vanilla aroma. Smooth mouthfeel, medium caramel flavor, with a more evident touch of artificial vanilla. Correct bitterness. You may like it, but it’s fake.

Gachupines (954) - USA - MAR 29, 2010
Deep amber with a decent white head. Aroma is malt, slightly spiced. Taste is malts with a strange nutty flavor almost like toffee. Interesting, not great, but not bad.

swoopjones (6218) - Buffalo, New York, USA - MAR 3, 2010
Draft @ Malone’s, Vancouver. Darker amber pour. Aroma of Christmas spice (nutmeg, cinnamon, clove) vanilla. A bit overly spiced. Medium to lighter bodied. OK

mcberko (7245) - 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.

JoeZasada (292) - Beaumont, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 29, 2009
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.
