Can. Appearance: Nice ruby colour with excellent clarity, large creamy light tan head, lasts reasonably well and leaves some nice lacing. Aroma: Very strong vanilla dominates, also some rum notes (actually the aroma can be well described as spiced rum). Faint hop aroma. Flavour: Quite sweet, not usually a big fan of sweetness, but this actually works for me with this beer. Not much else really, some nuttiness and toasted bread. Slight bitterness in the finish. Mouthfeel: Low carbonation, medium body, a chewiness that I can’t decide if I like or not. Short finish and not much of the warming aftertaste that I like in a winter beer. Overall: I could drink this again quite happily, but probably won’t go out of my way to get it. Will try it on tap soon hopefully and maybe it will impress more.

0.473 can. Clear, brown color and a large, fluffy, off-white head. Aroma of nuts, spices, brown cake, cream liquor, vanilla, and a hint of alcohol. Taste is sweet, spicy, caramel, vanilla, again baileys and a hint of alcohol. Medium body, creamy texture, and a flat carbonation. Finish is a tad too watery considering the beer’s creaminess. Overall a standard beer, pleasantly different and full of character but also a bit too artificial and not very drinkable.

Pours hazy brown with some off white head. A chocolate toffee aroma. The taste is sweet and rather boring. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a clear dark amber topped by a finger of creamy tanned head showing average retention and leaving a few strings on the side of the glass. The nose is milk chocolate and pink peppercorns. The taste has milk chocolate with some roasted notes of hazelnuts through a light body with mild bitterness. The brew finishes dry and grainy with nutty undertones. Cheers!

On tap in Whistler Village. Pours like maple syrup and tastes almost the same. This is one of the sweetest beers I have tasted. Sort of reminds me of Rogue hazelnut brown, but x10 the sweetness. Notes also of vanilla. It’s decent for the style, but one is all I could drink.

A truly bizarre experience: the overwhelming impression is that of a vanilla-flavoured ice cream soda! The aftertaste of vanilla is simply overpowering.

Dark cherry wood pour with an ever so slightly off white head. Aromas are all vanilla and chocolate bars. Tastes are totally the same with the addition, of a sneaky hop bitterness on the finish. Overall, if you like a sweet beer, it’s hard to go wrong with this

Slightly sweet malty lots of toffee and oranges. Not super well balanced, but enjoyable.
