Pours a nice ruby/amber color. Smells of very smooth with very litttle carbonation. Has a slight carmel taste. Tastes kind of like a See’s candy coffee sucker. Good easy drinker.

Lovely color and nice tan head. Aroma is spice and malt and some others. Ok mouthfeel little to sparkly for my taste. Has a nice bittersweet flavor with a good long lasting aftertaste.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUN 12, 2006 Aroma is sweet dark fruits and malt. Amber in color with a slowly diminishing, two finger thick, tan head. Fore is bready and malty, but has a slightly tinny note. Lots of caramel flavor. Has a hearthy and wholesome baked sweet bread feel to it. Finishes with warm bracing alcohol that leaves the throat dry and tingly.

Very malty, rich flavor. Although I like this beer, I generally will only buy it if Celebrator is unavailable.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: SEP 10, 2010 Pours a cloudy, orangey amber with a frothy, cappucino like head. I hoped it would be as good as Celebrator, but was skeptical. Nice malty, fruity, bready aroma with a hint of banana. The flavor was the same with some apricot and some warming alcohol. The palate was fair and overall typical of the style. Finishes with a slight metallic twang. Nothing extraordinary but all in all a nice offering.

Great beer! Nice body and wonderful after taste (almost toffee-like). Amazing with burgers. Cannot find in Nova Scotia

A bit too sweet for my liking but it doesn’t it make it a bad beer. It poured and orange light color, with a sweet aroma, and light head. This is a decent one.
