Great aroma of cinnamon and vanilla. Taste is first malty chocolate and vanilla, with subtle spice, then the cinnamon kicks in and leaves a peppery and deep spice tingle. This is my kind of warming ale.

Bottle. Dark brown, creamy cappucino head. Spicy aroma, slight sour note, cocoa, cinnamon. Milk chocolate and spices, liquid praline. Nice enough at first if you get into a dessert mood. Fairly sweet, mellow full body. Vanilla, light hoppy finish. Gets too candyish and sweet after a while.

deep brown with a red tint when held to the light. Nose is almost all cinnamon. Medium bodied. Flavor is a great blend of cinnamon and chocolate, and the vanilla finishes. Very drinkable, and a perfect winter beer.

22oz bottle 9/30/12 (Binny’s Downers Grove)-42° in Lager Glass-Pours a dark brown with a small tan head. Aroma of chocolate, vanilla, cinnamon, and malt. Taste of the same with a lot of cocoa and vanilla coming though. This medium bodied brew is well balanced and goes down super smooth. I love these two breweries collaborating on this brew. It kicks butt.

Good beer for a good cause. Dark mahogany with a thick off white head. The nose shows off the Cinammon and chocolate. The palate is extremely sweet, backed up by a massive malt backbone. This is good, but extremely rich and sweet. One to share for sure.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
650 ml bottle. Pours a dense dark brown color with a frothy medium khaki head that has good retention. The aroma is mild with vanilla, cocoa and well roasted grain. The flavor is a big blast of cocoa, dark bitter chocolate, walnuts and vanilla. The palate is full and smooth with soft carbonation. Finishes long and dry with lingering bitter chocolates. Overall: Very impressive!
