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.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: OCT 21, 2014 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.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JAN 29, 2015 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 buy 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 ?

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.
