Gorbalev (3000) - Ontario, CANADA - JAN 26, 2013
Can, LCBO. Sweet vanilla aroma. Dark amber pour, foamy tan head. Taste - not bad. Lots of vanilla - a bit too much - but it goes well enough with the sweet caramel tasting base. Light bodied and well carbonated. A bit watery. Not bad, but too much vanilla to get much else. Lots of flavour though.

473ml can from the LCBO. beautiful reddish brown with a lasting tan head, looks great. nose of vanilla and caramalt body, touch of chocolate but that might just be the vanilla cara combo. sweet flavour, vanilla dominating. medium bodied. too sweet for me.

jercraigs (10145) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 18, 2013
2013-01-13. Lightly hazy ruby brown body, small beige head. 3+ Sweet earthy malt aroma, notes of not quite Ovaltine seems familiar, and carries into the flavour. Sweetish middle finishes with drier accents, lightly dusty Ovaltine meets caramel accents. Bit if a vanilla note? Smooth average plus body. Decent. Bottle courtesy of GregClow.

dfinney23 (3046) - Houston, Texas, USA - JAN 16, 2013
Horrible blind-order pairing with a pizza but saving it until the end made for a tasty dessert. Vanilla and chocolate dominate. Would probably make a great beer float.

TheJester (2542) - Cavan Monaghan, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 13, 2013
473 mL can. Nice looking beer - bronze with a small but persistent beige head. Smells good too - sweet vanilla is there but not overpowering, and there is a hint of chocolate from the malt. So far, so good. Flavour is a little flat and underdeveloped, unfortunately. The vanilla is there, but everything alse is muddled and uninteresting.

solidfunk (8304) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - JAN 12, 2013
Surprisingly decent for Granville. Stong aromas of both vanilla and cocoa. Pours copper, medium to high carbonation though a little high for style. Taste has mild bitterness and sourness. A chalk-like finish to this. A little tinny also, but had this in a tall can.

Tessic (1111) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 31, 2012
This ale poured a deep amber colour with a quick living, soapy, white coloured head. Scents include caramel, bread and sweet grass. First sip was smooth and malty with flavours of brown sugar and caramel with a small amount of milk chocolate. finish is really malty with light chocolate flavours lingering.

UPDATED: SEP 14, 2013 Pour is a dark amber brown. Very clear. Scent is of vanilla, sugar, mint, and a hint of chocolate. Taste is a dark malty flavor backed by hints of vanilla and mint. Hardly any bitterness... not much for hops. Finish is light bitter though. Its OK.
