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!

Can. Fizzy can. Can exploded all over the floor, luckily I got to the sink in time. So it’s got a pretty good creamy head, not great, bright dark brown body. Aroma is artificial vanilla and malt notes, definitely macro smells there in terms of porter stuff going on. Flavour is marble cake, hints of chocolate, lots of vanilla as promised. Sweet finish, no crispness. Not especially exciting but a good safe choice for people afraid of darker beers.

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

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.

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.

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 (1619) - 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.

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.

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.
