Combines premium malt with aromatic specialty hops. Brewed with our special yeast, this beer has a vanilla like finish. A robust ale. Pair it with holiday meals.

MunBro (534) - St. Albert, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 3, 2014
Aroma of stale chocolate, funk, caramel, and malts. Dark clear amber pour. Taste is heavily of vanilla with some stale chocolate, spices, with a watery malt aftertaste. I have no real complaints about this one other than it having a very odd palate and being a bit watery.

Poured dark copper brown with medium frothy head. Heavy chocolate aroma. Same chocolate flavour with some vanilla, and a bit of coffee. I found the chocolate too overpowering to be enjoyable.

jonnyguns (1076) - AUSTRALIA - DEC 29, 2013
Bottle. Pours a copper red. Nose has some nutmeg, chocolate and mild toast malts. Taste is very thin. Needs more booze in it 5.5 ain’t enough. Watery finish. Ok but has potential to be a good beer.

pushkinwow (2100) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 23, 2013
On tap at the rooster. Copper with a beige head. Reminds me of creme brule both on the nose and the palate; very sweet, moderate carbonation and mild body. Not my thing at all.

Had one a year ago and did not like it. Gave it a second try and, while I wouldn’t drink it regularly, it surprised me. A bit Vanillaesque but a good enough seasonal beer
