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.

Very impressed by this one. Got it from the LCBO special winter pack. Always a nice surprise from a beer in can. A strong cocoa aroma and caramel taste.

Malty ale that lingers on the mouth. Dark brown with light carbonation. Standard stout flavour

I loved this shit when I was 19. Deep amber. Aroma is caramel and malt. Taste is quite sweet, with a lot of vanilla extract.

473 ml can. Clear dark amber colour, thin off-white head. Sweetish malty aroma with caramel, chocolate and vanilla. The flavour is malty, a little toasted, with cocoa, caramel and vanilla, and a moderately hoppy finish. OK.

Une bière cuivrée et foncée et limpide. La mousse...ah?! Disparue. Un nez de caramel et de tarte au sucre. Un goût de dessert, de pouding au pain et d’essence de vanille. Il y a des saveurs minérales au travers ça. Une effervescence soutenue. Une bière correcte comme ça, mais sinon, ça manque de profondeur. Merci Mark. (2107-210217)

Draft. Pours a deep amber brown with no head. Aromas of absolute sweetness - brown sugar, subtle mint, caramel and toffee. Matching taste - cloying and overpowering through the finish. Way too much in this winter ale

Bouteille de 341ml. Une robe brune acajou foncée avec une mousse beige. Un nez et une bouche identiques avec du chocolat et du caramel sucré à la tonne. On dirait une ale qui est «passé date» où les malts ont tournés en caramel chocolaté avec de la vanille artificielle en prime. Trop sucré.

Tranquillity (2480) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 18, 2017
Canned. Clear red body, small even beige head. The aroma is metallic, hoppy and slightly sweet. The taste is bland and watery.

ChadPoole (478) - Ontario, CANADA - DEC 30, 2016
Pours dark amber with an off white head. Aroma is dark fruits, vanilla and malts. Sweet malts, carmel, toffee and vanilla flavours with a medium body and carbonation. A little sweet for me but not bad.

ILduce (285) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 24, 2016
UPDATED: DEC 24, 2016 Orange amber. Big bubbly beige head that dissipates rather quickly, but leaves behind a lot of lace. The aroma is pleasantly adorned with notes of toffee, caramel, floral hops, and bread. The flavour pales however. Mostly sweet malts and grain with caramel. Sticky on the palate and it tends to thin out as it hits the back of the mouth. Not enough body or alcohol to be a winter offering.
