2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tap: Deep brown edges, nearly black center with a mocha-tan head that quickly dissipates into nothing. Very nice aroma; vanilla, sweet cream, caramel, & brown sugar give off that heavy sweetness vibe & have a very dessert-like appeal. Taste is no different... It’s sweet. VERY sweet. Milky vanilla, sweet caramelized brown sugar, burnt toffee, just a slight astringency from the roasted malt. Sweet up front, sweet on the back-end.... Sweet everywhere. The taste, the aroma, all good, but the high sweetness makes this hard to drink more than a few ounces. I understand it’s SUPPOSED to be a "sweet dessert" beer, but this is overboard. Attenuate a little more & this beer might actually be really good.

Deliciously inventive. Perhaps overly sweet for more than a single serving but perfect for post dinner/holiday evening. High vanilla and caramel as the name would suggest.

UPDATED: JUL 22, 2014 Poured from bomber into snifter. Dark, dark brown color, with thin white low retention head. Smells straight up like butterscotch. Taste is interesting: more butterscotch/ vanilla, but a little more bitter than I expected. Feel is like fizzy ice cream (I know thats weird, but thats the best way to describe it); the fizziness is a bit odd as well (maybe its not supposed to be that way?). Overall, a pretty interesting, pretty tasty beer, for all its oddities.

Another beverage filed under "it is what it is" because it smells and tastes exactly like a crème brûlée. The booze is nicely hidden. It’s super heavy, though, so definitely save it for the last beer in the tasting session or as a dessert. Enjoyed on tap at Sugar Maple, MKE, WI.

GF. Pours a dark small head. Tons of butterscotch, caramel, and of course vanilla. Smooth mouthfeel. Very sweet. Nice alcohol burn on the finish.

Pours very dark with thick head that fades with no lacing. Aroma is very sweet with vanilla and caramel. Tastes the same with a hint of maltiness. Pretty smooth and sticks to the stout style. I really enjoyed this beer. Poured from a bomber into left hand stout glass, second pouring the same but over blue bell vanilla ice cream.

Aroma a chocolate con fuerte infusión de vainilla y toque a dulce de leche, color ópalo, con cabeza avellana poca retención, en boca dulce de leche quemado con chocolate y mucha vainilla, muy goloso, perfecta para postre deliciosa....

Draft - Black as midnight, very sweet smell to it. Sweet taste and a lot of vanilla on the palate. Flavor lingers around as well. Lots of vanilla all over the place. A good occasional beer for after dinner.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark brown with auburn hues, almost no head. Intense caramel aromas, eggnog, lots of vanilla, dulce de leche ice cream. Full bodied, taste like...crème brulée, very sweet, finishes on this long creamy caramel and crème brulée aftertaste, a bit overly sweet for my liking though. A real liquid crème brulée...
