RumRunner101 (770) - Alberta, - NOV 17, 2012
Light copper pour. Aroma is biscuit, along with vanilla. Light body, relatively thin, average carbonation. Flavour is lightly roasted malts with hazelnut, caramel, and vanilla. Sweet, but not overpowering. Session worthy.

RhetoricalAns (255) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 31, 2014
Bottle. Amber pour with a thin white fizzy white head. Vanilla aroma with some spicy notes. Malty taste with a hint of nuttiness, more vanilla. Thin body and light carbonation.

dfinney23 (1672) - Houston, Texas, USA - JUN 16, 2014
Pours dark amber with a thin tan cap. Aroma is nothing but vanilla. Taste adds some nuts and a somewhat metallic finish. It probably doesn’t help that it’s well past winter now.

simonblaine (290) - Alberta, CANADA - MAY 6, 2014
Pours dark copper, minimal head. Aroma of cotton candy, vanilla, caramel. Taste is slightly sweeter than I like, heavyish, caramel, ends with a passing hint of vanilla. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ljthiessen (392) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - APR 20, 2014
Bottle. Clear amber pour with an off-white head. Aromas of vanilla, candy and light citrus. Flavour is candy, caramel, vanilla and spices. Not one of the better winter ales I've tried.

exeter (306) - calgary, Alberta, CANADA - APR 12, 2014
Vanilla smell in this beer is a the strongest thing you’ll notice. It also has a nutty flavour mixed with brown sugar. Some bubble gum at the end.

piscator34 (1968) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - MAR 15, 2014
Bottled sample. Pale copper in colour with medium carbonation. Aroma is of florals and sweet caramel. Flavours are heavy on vanilla, backed by whole wheat toast, pudding, and white pepper. Lightsh bodied and oddly astringent. A strange one.

If you like cream soda, you’ll love this beer. If you don’t like cream soda, you’ll hate this beer. I don’t like cream soda.

bulldogops (1048) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 25, 2013
Rating #857 - December 24, 2013. Amber brown pour with a minimal tan head that fades quickly to a ring. Aroma is toffee, chocolate, vanilla, Strong malty notes predominant, slight roasty bitterness. Light bodied, balanced sweet winter ale that is beyond crushable.

Cinctus (165) - - DEC 25, 2013
Very sweet, kind of fruity almost like Christmas pudding. Very drinkable, would have again.

Reimer96 (1222) - Alberta, CANADA - OCT 26, 2013
Pours a clear light amber with a small white head that dissipates quickly. Aroma of caramel, vanilla, chocolate and some spiciness. Taste is vanilla, nuts, light chocolate, roasted malts and a nice mild bitterness on the finish. Overall a nice winter ale but a bit too artificial in the flavors.
