omhper (24097) - Tyres, SWEDEN - FEB 24, 2006
Draught at the brewpub. Clear nut brown. Cocoa aroma. Sweetish with plenty of vanilla and chocolate.The body is fairly light and the mouthfeel clean. Low hop rate and bitternss. It does have some really interesting flavours.

fiulijn (19831) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 20, 2010
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.

Oakes (16128) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 1, 2005
Reddish-bronze colour. Aroma of vanilla (which is an added flavour in the brew), caramel, a little bit of cardamom and demerara sugar. The palate is quite sweet. There is a lot of caramel flavour, with vanilla sugar...this beer is crazy sweet but because I love vanilla sugar it appeals to me.

mcberko (15436) - 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.

Lubiere (13193) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 6, 2005
Red copper ale with a thick off white head. Fairly strong vanilla aroma, and fruity notes. Light malt and vanilla ice cream, with light alcohol warmth and oily mouthfeel. Medium bodied. Quite an interesting beer. Thanks to JM!

jercraigs (10093) - 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.

deanso (9774) - the Hague, NETHERLANDS - FEB 4, 2014
Sample @ a beer tasting at the Paas. Huge chocolate aroma. Thin white head. Clear amber pour. Chocolate in the aftertaste. Pretty nice

DuffMan (9755) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 25, 2010
Bottle. Clear dark amber, medium almond head. Sweet burnt sugar and vanilla aroma. Flavour is the same, with some maple notes as well. Pleasant enough flavours, but I agree that it has a "coffee shop" syrup quality to it. Underlying beer is a bit thin. Alright, but nothing Id come back to.

JoeMcPhee (9408) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 6, 2004
Dark brown with coppery hints. Smells quite sweet, with vanilla dominating, but also hints of sweet malt, chocolate, and coffee. Flavour is also sweet with very little bitterness. Finishes with a strong vanilla flavour. I really enjoyed this one, but it might benefit from a bit more hops in the finish. Well done.
