2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at Hops in New Westminster. Poured in signature sleeve for measure and re-poured into a medium snifter for aroma. The color is beautiful; a dark reddish amber. A decent beige head, but not very long lasting. Sweet caramel on the nose. Caramel and vanilla on the tongue. Any hops or chestnut are overwhelmed by the caramel and vanilla. Okay for the fall season, but lacks complexity.

Maple, nut, honey aroma. Black Amber pour with large toasted white foam. Very appealing sweet beer with a wheaty,nut taste. Delicous fot those that dont mind a sugary ale.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
330 ml bottle. Pours a clear, red amber with an average, beige head that laces. Sweet and artificial aroma of vanilla, nuts and caramel. Syrupy sweet and artificial flavour of vanilla, nuts, caramel and roasted malt with a mildly bitter finish. Light body with a watery texture and soft carbonation. Novelty or gimmick beer. Too sweet and syrupy for me.

Aroma is sweet malts nuts and light sulphur. Taste is sweet basic malts, a well balanced nut presence that finishes smoothly with light bitterness. Appearance is a clear amber with a thin pearl head that retains fairly well.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a medium brown color with small head. Despite the lack of head aroma is plentiful and sweet with lots of caramel coming through. Taste is a nice malt with a hint of chestnut coming through along with some hard to place spices. Finishes hoppy. This is a great autumn beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a clear medium brown with a small tan head. Aroma of vanilla, nut, caramel and toffee. Taste is sweet vanilla mixed with chestnut and light butterscotch. Overall it’s balanced well but a bit too much artificial vanilla.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a dark clear brown. Micro-head but no lacing. Smells of butterscotch and and maybe some chestnuts. Taste is pretty much the same as the smell, nothing to complex here. Too sweet and the body is weak.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draft - Crazy sweet hazelnuts and vanilla. Smells artificially sweetened and flavored. Clear copper with a decent head. Tastes the same. Good if you don’t like beer.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Cloudy amber-brown pour with a thin, soapy beige head. I’m kind of torn with this beer... Huge chestnut and sweet caramel aroma, honey, milk chocolate notes, almost sickly sweet, but very intriguing. Flavour is sweet and malty, chestnut and caramel, a touch of chocolate. Some really delicious flavours, but tastes pretty artificial.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
On tap at Tap & Barrel Coal Harbour, pours a hazy dark amber with a small beige head. Aroma brings out loads of chestnuts and hazelnuts - smells rather artificial though. Flavour is the same, with syrupy hazelnuts. Doesn’t taste like a beer, just a syrupy alcoholized carbonated beverage of some sort. Gimmick "beer" for non-beer lovers.
