4.3 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle (dated 2/3/14) poured into a Belgian snifter. Pours black with a finger of tan head. Aroma is spot on creme brulee. Lots of vanilla, caramel, burnt sugar. Tasting notes of vanilla, caramel, burnt sugar, bitter roast, subtle chocolate. Full body with a dry finish. Oily mouthfeel, medium carbonation. Alcohol is pretty well hidden.

On tap, dark Carmelly brown with a tan head and some lacing. Amazing nose totally lives up to the name. Taste is deep, sweet, just like the desert, but it gets a bit heavy on the tongue after a full glass.

If you are a fan of phony tasting flavored coffee you would probably love this. Personally I found it gross. Can I give this zero stars? I’m at The Great Lost Bear in Portland, ME with a great selection of beer. I thank God that I only purchased a 5oz sample of this vile concoction. Do yourself a favor and skip this one!

On tap at The Cove. Pours a very dark brown with beige head that leaves sticky lacing. The aroma is a strong burnt caramel, vanilla, and roast. Medium mouthfeel with burnt sugar, sweet vanilla, and lingering roast finish. Good.

Draft. Pours black thin head. Aroma of chocolate, roasted malt, creme, and alcohol. High sweet and rich taste. Full body, oily texture, some alcohol bitterness in the finish. Very enjoyable, and filling. One was enough for me but would drink again.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
22oz bottle. pours silky smooth, dark black with a tiny tan head. almost overpowering huge sweet aroma. caramel, marshmallow, vanilla. very sweet taste, light roast, heavy marshmallow, chocolate. little bitterness at the finish that doesn’t do much to offset the sweetness. nice tasty dessert beer or sipper. I imagine it would go great with chocolate cake.

Black. No head. I just poured and from three feet away all i smell is vanilla. Maybe somesweet toffee or caramel too. Same in flavor. Great notes of sweet vanilla caramel before a mouthful of espresso. Really nice stout. Good balance between sweet and bitter

Poured from a tap. Dark brown color, medium off white frothy head. Smells like Creme brûlée. Light malt characters with a distinct Creme brûlée flavor and a mild burn malt finish.

4.4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Aroma of toasted marshmallow and caramel. Taste is very sweet but not overpowering. So much flavor. The coffee flavor of a stout still breaks through and occupies the rest of the aftertaste. Pretty boozy at the end.
