0.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
Nice dark amber pour into english pint glass. Clear body. Aroma of cheap spiced rum and vanilla extract. Tasting notes: Overpowering taste of cheap rum and vanilla. The closest comparison I can give this beer is pouring half a bottle of cheap spiced rum into a flat coors light. Upon first few sips this beer was immediately dumped down the sink. Stay away from this beer and others from GIB, terrible experience.

On tap. Dark amber pour, tan head. Medium carbonation. Very sweet aroma of vanilla, cocoa, Irish cream coffee. Pretty sweet throughout. Malty backbone. This is syrupy. Not complex or balanced.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: NOV 28, 2013 Really wish Coors would stop pushing this crap in Ontario. Chocolate & mint on the tongue (which is odd cuz the additive used in vanilla flavour). Rating stolen from Janice’s pint at paupers. She says its ok but only one, thank you. I say none.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear dark red in colour with strong carbonation. Aromas are of toasted malt, vanilla, and mild Christmas spices. Milk chocolate and vanilla dominate the palate, with some warming spices and a mild floral note providing balance. Medium bodied. Not typically a fan of this style of beer, but this one wasn’t too bad. Would be good as a lighter after dinner beer.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: NOV 12, 2013 330ml bottle into a pilsener glass. Pours a transparent garnet with a lasting fluffy white head. Nose of overpowering chocolate and vanilla, and the flavour is reminiscent of drinking a purified chocolate brownie. Definitely not a session beer (which I was, unfortunately, blindly treating it as upon first taste). Digestif only from here on out. Totally unexpected.

Perhaps the chocolate and vanilla are over the top, but I like it that way. This brew speaks to me in a way that I can’t quite articulate.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle poured into a pint glass. Pours a caramel colour with a white head that quickly disappears to a ring. Nose is vanilla, malt, and chocolate. Taste follows nose. Average beer.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
473ml can. Pours a clear, dark caramel with a frothy, two finger, off-white head that thins to a thick, milky film that coats the glass well. Mild bubbles can be seen rising.
Aroma is bready with notes of caramel, vanilla, spice and a touch of white chocolate.
Taste is balanced. A fair amount of malt sweetness but not sickly sweet. Slightly spiced aftertaste but again, not overdone.
Medium body with a low-medium carbonation. Slightly slick in the mouth but still fairly crisp.
Overall not bad. Great appearance with a well rounded aroma and taste. Good show. Would but again to mix it up but probably not in the summer. I couldn’t drink a lot of them because of the sweetness but still worth a taste.

Bottle. Pours dark amber with aroma of vanilla and malt. Tastes sweet and light chocolate notes with vanilla finish. Gives me a terrible hangover though. Perhaps a bit too sugary ?
