473ml can. Clear amber body, medium beige head with average retention and some lacing. Aroma of vanilla, caramel, condensed milk, Baileys. Taste is consistent with the aroma: caramel, condensed milk, vanilla. Some medicinal-metallic aftertaste. Disappointing.

355 ml can from a Granville Island winter sampler, served in a weissbier vase. Pours a light coppery shade with an off-white, short-lived head. Did not notice carbonation. Aroma bodes unwell with overwhelming vanilla over some hardly-identifiable malts; flavor is so cream soda-like and vanilla-dense it nauseated me close to spewing. Did not notice palate. This is a definite drainpour and a reminder to avoid any "winter ale" - see my review of Tree Brewings Vertical Winter Ale. Why would you want to oversaturate perfectly good beer with this "winter" flavoring nonsense? Ho ho oh hell no.

Has a strong chocolate overtone with vanilla accents. There is a bitterness to the drink that makes it work. Definitely a brew that makes winter bearable!

Une bire cuivre et claire aux reflets rubis foncs qui est surmonte dune mousse bruntre mince se verse dans le verre. Les flaveurs de caramel, de vanille et de chocolat au lait semblent artificielles, autant au nez quen bouche. Javais limpression de boire une tarte au sucre liquide, mais cheap. Je serais aussi bien de boire une Vie de Chteau tant qu a. Ouin. Non.

KoNrRiI (1393) - rhus, DENMARK - NOV 20, 2015
0.473 can. Clear, brown color and a large, fluffy, off-white head. Aroma of nuts, spices, brown cake, cream liquor, vanilla, and a hint of alcohol. Taste is sweet, spicy, caramel, vanilla, again baileys and a hint of alcohol. Medium body, creamy texture, and a flat carbonation. Finish is a tad too watery considering the beers creaminess. Overall a standard beer, pleasantly different and full of character but also a bit too artificial and not very drinkable.

Pours hazy brown with some off white head. A chocolate toffee aroma. The taste is sweet and rather boring. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Beardbeerman (341) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 22, 2015
Pours a clear dark amber topped by a finger of creamy tanned head showing average retention and leaving a few strings on the side of the glass. The nose is milk chocolate and pink peppercorns. The taste has milk chocolate with some roasted notes of hazelnuts through a light body with mild bitterness. The brew finishes dry and grainy with nutty undertones. Cheers!

On tap in Whistler Village. Pours like maple syrup and tastes almost the same. This is one of the sweetest beers I have tasted. Sort of reminds me of Rogue hazelnut brown, but x10 the sweetness. Notes also of vanilla. Its decent for the style, but one is all I could drink.

A truly bizarre experience: the overwhelming impression is that of a vanilla-flavoured ice cream soda! The aftertaste of vanilla is simply overpowering.
