This ale poured a deep amber colour with a quick living, soapy, white coloured head. Scents include caramel, bread and sweet grass. First sip was smooth and malty with flavours of brown sugar and caramel with a small amount of milk chocolate. finish is really malty with light chocolate flavours lingering.

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

Beardbeerman (237) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 22, 2015
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!

greenhorn1 (850) - Mission Viejo, California, USA - FEB 12, 2015
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.

pours unclear copper-mahogany with a small reviving light beige head showing some retention and lacing. fragrant sweet powdery chocolate mix, sweet maltiness, raspberries, light woodsy and earthy notes - light astringency, vanilla chocolate shake. light carbonation, light body - oily, sweetish and spicy-chocolatey finish. an artificial dessert.

MarkoR (637) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 19, 2015
On tap at Laughing Buddha, in Sudbury. Pours a dark cherry wood colour with thin off-white head. Aroma is vanilla, chocolate. Taste is same.

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.

Yamato (31) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JAN 6, 2015
Chocolate and chocolate. From the beginning to the end. With a slight hint of vanilla. Caramel. Not bitter. Medium body. Low carbonation. Not bad, but not my taste. ABV is 5.5%, but not overwhelming.
