Hateball16 (105) - - DEC 4, 2012
Can. Appearance: Nice ruby colour with excellent clarity, large creamy light tan head, lasts reasonably well and leaves some nice lacing. Aroma: Very strong vanilla dominates, also some rum notes (actually the aroma can be well described as spiced rum). Faint hop aroma. Flavour: Quite sweet, not usually a big fan of sweetness, but this actually works for me with this beer. Not much else really, some nuttiness and toasted bread. Slight bitterness in the finish. Mouthfeel: Low carbonation, medium body, a chewiness that I cant decide if I like or not. Short finish and not much of the warming aftertaste that I like in a winter beer. Overall: I could drink this again quite happily, but probably wont go out of my way to get it. Will try it on tap soon hopefully and maybe it will impress more.

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 (270) - 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.

AleRider78 (830) - Winchester, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 18, 2016
Pours a pretty big creamy looking off white head. Has a dark amber/copper appearance. Nice dirty lacing. Mild sweet malts and floral hop aromas. Flavours are pretty sweet with some caramel and toffee coming through early with notes of vanilla on the back end. Really good taste, not really bitter at all. Medium carbonation, with a nice mouthcoating creamy mouthfeel. Very nice and smooth on the palate. Pretty good and easy to drink.

guil0000 (408) - New Brunswick, CANADA - MAR 19, 2016
Pours a clear bright red color. Nose of toffee, caramel, vanilla, nuttiness. Taste is medium sweet but not overly. Kind of candyish and not a ton of hopiness but still not bad. Medium to light body, medium to light carbonation.

341ml bottle. Pours a clear red-amber with a medium, creamy, long lasting, beige head that laces. Sweet aroma of caramel malt, vanilla and light spice. Sweet flavour of caramel malt, vanilla and light spice with a mildly dry, bitter finish. Light body with a creamy, smooth, syrupy texture and soft carbonation. Not bad.

lesifflebiere (1747) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 7, 2016
paisse mousse couleur crme sur un breuvage cuivr aux reflets oranges. Le nez est de noix et de cacao. Texture mi-paisse, liquide translucide. En bouche, beaucoup de chocolat et de vanille, ce qui est assez surprenant. Trs bonbon, mais sa texture la rend presque dsaltrante. Tout est dans les malts, et on doit reconnatre son originalit, mais cest une bire qui ne plaira pas tout le monde, et qui derrire le voile sucr nest finalement pas grand-chose.

This beer is very full bodied and has a strong caramel sweetness. It's a very clear amber with medium carbonation. Not much aroma though. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
