3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from Brewery Creek, Vancouver
Dark brown color, the head reduces quickly. The aroma is like perfume, talc, artificial vanilla. Dry mouthfeel, highly carbonated; cheap chocolate flavor and artificial vanilla; some roasted malt, and accentuated bitterness.
Odd. Not my kind.

Appearance: compared side by side with the terrapin version shows a lot more sweet chocolate and vanilla in the aroma, just a hint of the spicy character
Overall: flavor is drier compared to the draft, even the terrapin is coming out sweeter in comparison, rich chocolate, just a touch of the cinnamon, vanilla is all in the aroma, only upon warming does the sweetness begin to emerge

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber from Total Wine in Sacramento, CA. Pours dark brown with garnet glints and a 2 finger creamy/fluffy beige head. Primary aroma is chocolate. Full bodied. Flavor is chocolate, a good dose of cinnamon, and a suggestion of something else - which might be vanilla, but there’s so much cinnamon I’d be willing to consider chile. It’s very flavorful. Finishes very spicy in a cinnamon bark way.Quite an ale!

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a dark brown color with a finger of khaki head. Lots of cocoa, vanilla, and milk chocolate in the nose. There’s a slight chili pepper aroma and heat along with a touch of raisins. Just a mild earthy note on the nose, too. Maybe a hint of roast and coffee. The flavor is full of sweet molasses, marshmallow, cocoa, and fudge. There’s a touch of raisin fruitiness, a light pepper/spice note, and a touch of vanilla. The mouthfeel is really nice and creamy, too.
