Bottle purchased at Top Hops Beer Shop in NYC, drunk in a hotel room in Ottawa to try and lighten my luggage load before the flight home.
Pours a red-tinged dark brown, some fizz around the glass. Head is beige, OK but a bit thin. Bit soft-drink-looking, really. Darker would be nice.
Smells sweet. Big vanilla hint with milk chocolate, touch of nutmeg. Richness, but more of a molasses than a roasty kind. Not bad, but very sweet.
Taste is fairly sweet as well. Vanilla permeates throughout, with a touch of cherry cola midway, dry-roasted spice late with cinnamon bark and a mild pepper note. Sweet, desserty beer. I need some more grounding. Some roast on the back would really carry this and make it a much more mature drink.
Mouthfeel contributes to its meek spirit, it's quite thin and yet retains a slight syrupy texture.
I'm being harsh with this one as I'm very sensitive to sweetness in beer. There's probably a lot for others to enjoy in this.
