Super beer! Poured at a good temperature with a collassal, foamy, frothy, fluffy, light tan head that settled very slowly and lots of lace. Color is a dark mahoganey with some tiny bubble trails. Aroma is great - vanilla, roast, malt, hint of cinnamon. Flavor’s like nose and has very good balance all the way around, sweet, carbonic tang, and bitter. The rich flavors are tamed just right. Body & carbonation are just right. Finish is like flavor although there’s a medicinal component that detracts. Finish is also long. I had a piece of habanero jack cheese and it messed up my mouth, so this review is provisional. MarinEvelyn (854) - Wisconsin, USA - NOV 3, 2013
Aroma..malt, dark fruit. Fairly sweet. raisin, cocoa.
Ohh, taste is unexpected but wonderful. Cinnamon, cocoa. Very smooth, medium body, nice balance. Reimer96 (1743) - Alberta, CANADA - JAN 19, 2015
Pours an almost opaque black with a red hue. Aroma of vanilla, sweet cinnamon sugar, light cocoa, chocolate and some mild nutty overtones. Taste is bitter cocoa chocolate, vanilla, nuts and a nice smooth sweet cinnamon on the finish. Medium carbonation with a full body that’s well balanced and easy to drink.

Pours mahogany with a large brown-beige head. smell hints of roast, chocolate, hints of cinnamon and vanilla. Taste is cocoa nibs, and roast. Medium-bodied with a smooth texture and light prickly mouth-carbonation, Schmaltz Reunion ’12 finishes with some cocoa bitterness.

Dark brown with thin layer of white head. Really nice original aroma of Mexican chocolate with cinnamon as the first think to hit the nose. Complex layers of flavors going here: milk chocolate, vanilla, cinnamon, maple syrup, and hazelnut trujahwarrior (510) - Monroe, Washington, USA - APR 14, 2013
Pours a dark brown color with a thick fluffy khaki head that leaves pretty good lacing. Smells of chocolate and vanilla and roasted malt. Tastes of all the same things in the smell and cinnamon. Mouthfeel is thick and creamy and silky with medium carbonation. This is the definition of a great desert beer. The use of cocoa nibs, vanilla, and cinnamon work perfectly. Slightly better than last years version in my opinion. Crit (3996) - Surrey, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 16, 2012

Very good. Chocolate and vanilla are most prevalent. Slight citrus hints. Coffee finish. Thick and full but smooth. Good stuff

Pours very dark brown bordering along opaque with a small off white head and a small amount of lace. Aroma is vanilla, cocoa nibs, chocolate, cinnamon, overall decently sweet, malty and nutty. Flavour is cocoa, chocolate, cinnamon, vanilla, roasted malt, mild alcohol when it warms up, mild bitterness, a little grainy, nutty and a mildly dry finish. Really tasty brew I wish I would see every years collaboration here...
