sudomorph (994) - Barrie, Ontario, - OCT 24, 2013
440ml can. Poursa glass full of a mocha/tan head that slowly forms into a three finger, creamy head with a clear, dark copper liquid. Head is persistent and doesn’t fade at all. Aroma is noticeable. Notes of vanilla, and roasted malts with a hint of chocolate. Taste is mildly bitter and balanced. Chocolate and vanilla on the finish. Medium body with a low carbonation. Pretty clean texture with a flat mouth feel. Overall pretty good. Solid aroma, taste, and texture. Though I did have to scoop out the unfading creamy head with a spoon to get to the beer. Other than that this is a solid brew. Would like to try it on draft instead of a draft can. Cheers!

Light vanilla aroma matches light vanilla taste. Pours with heavy head. Average porter. Can.

Full bodied with a creamy nitrogen head. The vanilla is the dominant flavour, but not overpowering, overall really nice beer. Drank in Toronto airport. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Frank (3713) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 27, 2015
Typical bland nitro stout with a heavy handed dose of vanilla. It’s creamy, lightly roasty with a slight cherry and vanilla notes along with chocolate. Not as gross as some nitro stouts and kinda works as a dessert beer.

Freaky_tiki (894) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 23, 2015
Bottle from 6 pack sampler. 3rd beer in my Labatt-Mill street study (others included their Belgium Ale & Scottish Ale). Like the other two beers encountered in nights research, this is a serious sugar bomb. Now that in seeing this pattern, it seems their signature is the candy aspect of their brews. A reviewer below dismisses this beer as chocolate milk meets lots of water & he’s not wrong. Words that come to mind are: thin, water, artificial, underwhelming, meh.

cmacklin (572) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 8, 2015
440ml can. Pours a clear, dark brown with a reddish hue and a large, creamy, long lasting, tan, nitro head that laces. Sweet aroma of vanilla cream coffee and caramel. Sweet vanilla flavour with roasted malt, caramel and dark chocolate with a light bitter, coffee finish. Light body with a smooth, creamy texture and soft, almost flat carbonation.

Kauge (1037) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 4, 2015
Can from LCBO. Masssssive gusher. Anyway, after some cleaning, the beer pours dark, near black with a reddish hue. The light tan head retains very well. The nose is awful sweet. Could be vanilla but not really distinct, I get more milk chocolate with a bit of nougat and toffee maybe. Yet... one-dimentional. The flavour’s as sweet chocolate most dominant, and a disturbing estery / herbal / chemical finish. Soft, velvety / watery light body with extremely thin, almost non-existing carbonation. Not a fan of the style nor extreme sweetness paired with watery palate.

chucklemation (1035) - Royal Oak, Michigan, USA - SEP 9, 2015
Pours a ruby brown with a long-lasting white foam head and lots of lacing. Aroma is vanilla, toffee, and caramel, with a silky cream undertone. Flavor is sweet vanilla, caramel, toffee, some earthy hops. Has a creamy, silky smooth mouthfeel. This is a fantastic little gem.

Oldschool_Mike (264) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 28, 2015
Can into pint glass. Pours a dark brown colour with a big creamy tan head. Aroma is vanilla with slight roasted malts. Taste is about the same with a nice creamy body. Good beer.

Pailhead (6143) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - JUL 21, 2015
On tap (nitro): The aroma consists of moderate vanilla ice cream with light caramel and a hint of nuts. It’s a dark brown with some orange transparency when held to the light. It has a two finger creamy khaki head that settles to a thick film. The flavor starts with a quick dose of chocolate. The finish has moderate vanilla cream, light caramel, and a hint of roasted nuts. It’s medium bodied with soft carbonation and mouthfeel.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5969) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 17, 2015
Sampled from a 16 oz can this beer poured a very dark brown color with orange highlights and a medium sized creamy tan head that lingered and left good lacing. The aroma was sour caramel, toasty malts and vanilla. The flavor was sour caramel, vanilla, toasty malts, malted milk and marzipan. Long finish. Moderately full bodied and smooth. Solid.
