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.

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.

piscator34 (1949) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - NOV 25, 2013
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.

UPDATED: JAN 18, 2014 Slight aroma of vanilla. Clear mahogany-red colour. Flavour of milk chocolate, allspice, and vanilla. Medium body, and carbonation. Overall, quite enjoyable

plaugher (159) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - NOV 11, 2013
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.

Mlkluther (46) - Alberta, CANADA - OCT 16, 2013
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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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 ?

Pours an off brown with a very light tan head. Aromas of white chocolate and spices make this beer very appealing. The roasted white chocolate flavour is evident first, followed by spices and a strong splash of vanilla. Toffee and caramel flavours also present. Hops are well balanced with the added flavours.
