Draught at the taproom
Dark amber color; creamy head. Do I smell vanilla? Its quite artificial. Light vanilla aroma. Smooth mouthfeel, medium caramel flavor, with a more evident touch of artificial vanilla. Correct bitterness. You may like it, but its fake.

Deep amber with a decent white head. Aroma is malt, slightly spiced. Taste is malts with a strange nutty flavor almost like toffee. Interesting, not great, but not bad.

swoopjones (7020) - Buffalo, New York, USA - MAR 3, 2010
Draft @ Malones, Vancouver. Darker amber pour. Aroma of Christmas spice (nutmeg, cinnamon, clove) vanilla. A bit overly spiced. Medium to lighter bodied. OK

mcberko (16260) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 20, 2010
UPDATED: MAR 6, 2010 Pours dark amber with a small head. Aroma is vanilla and white chocolate, with subtler nutmeg and cinnamon. Flavour is much the same, with a dominating vanilla aftertaste - quite smooth.

turboespresso (256) - Port Moody, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 17, 2010
On tap. Dark copper-brown with almost no head or lacing apparent. Slight vanilla aroma. Taste is likewise, with vanilla and spices apparent. Medium bodied. Not very lively. Not very hoppy either. This beer was okay but nothing special.
