From bottle. Aroma is Toffee, vanilla and malt. Pours reddish-brown with slight head. Big vanilla taste up front that fades fast. Sweet, light-bodied. A little thin with a watery finish. Would enjoy stronger longer lastign flavours.

lotsalaughs (126) - Alberta, CANADA - OCT 3, 2012
caramel, bread, butterscotch, amber/orange, clear, minimal head, light sweetness, lightly bitter, lightly sour, light body, thin feel, soft carbonation, light bitter vanilla finish Pours a nice amber copper with very minimal head. Aromas of vanilla/spice/bread immediate, and begin to fade quickly. Caramel and vanilla aoma lingers longer. Quite thin mouthfeel with slight cabonation. Flavour of vanilla and light spices combine with an initial slight sourness that turns to a lightly astringent, short lived bitter finish with more vanilla. Reminds me a bit of vanilla creme caramel. A nice light Christmas time beer.

Bottle. Toffee, vanilla and malt aroma. Pours reddish-brown with small amounts of head. Big vanilla taste up front that fades fast. Sweet, light-bodied. A little thin with a watery finish. Could stand to have more substance.

Ferris (4499) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 30, 2012
Bottle - Malty with significant vanilla aroma. Clear amber hue with minimal head. Toasted malt taste with a ton of vanilla but not too sweet, ever so slight bitterness in the finish. A little too carbonated for my taste, but a nice tasting winter ale.

fiulijn (14990) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 14, 2012
Draught at St. Augustine’s, Vancouver
Amber color; creamy head. Spice and malt aroma, maybe vanilla. Lean mouthfeel; caramel flavor, fudge, and spicy cookies; ordinary bitterness.
Not bad, but there is too much Christmas for me here.

Powertrip (999) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 1, 2012
6-pack purchased from a BC Liqour Store in Whistler, BC on 02/01/2012. Colour: Medium-dark brown with decent head that fizzles fast. Nose: Milk chocolate, caramel malt, leathery yeast, vanilla ice cream. Taste: Medium-high sweet, light bitter, medium-light sour. Very sweet forward then settles into a vanilla-dipped malty body. Over the top. Stretches the limites of acceptable.

Cole (967) - , Alberta, CANADA - JAN 27, 2012
Pours brown with a thick head. smells very grassy. Tastes like burnt coffee and waxy chocolate. Once again tree attempts a seasonal and builds a bottle of shit. Don’t get me wrong Tree does some great beer. But, this is not one of them.
