An awesome, incredibly unique beer. Pours a deep black with a tan head. Smells amazing, tiramisu, Kahlua, vanilla and caramel. Taste is boozy, with lots of kahlua, amaretto and vanilla, with a liquor heat in the finish. Would be amazing as a beer float. Had in the bottle.

On tap at Middletown Fine Wine and Spirits. Pours dark brown to black with a tan head. Aromas of caramel and burnt sugar. A lot of caramel. Flavors the same with some coffee and chocolate. Caramel is very big here. Very nice depth of flavors. A little alcohol warmth at the end. Very nice on tap!

Taste like Creme Brule for sure. Very sweet. It’s a good desert beer if there’s such a thing. Also has taste of roasted sugar. Slightly nutty near the finish.

Bottle. Pours pitch black with a fading light brown head. Aroma of vanilla, white chocolate, really sweet. Taste is vanilla, sweet caramel, white chocolate, custard, burnt sugar on the finish. Tastes and smells like a creme brulee although it's very sweet. Medium carbonation, sticky oily mouthfeel.

roasty, caramel, chocolate, coffee, vanilla, black, tan foam,
This beer is good although it is a little too strong for me. An excellent beer for someone who likes bold flavor.

Bottle to plastic :(
Vanilla, caramel, candy, butterscotch. Dark brown with a light brown head, no lacing. Taste is vanilla fudge, oats, and some bitterness once the sweet subsides.

Great beer! Full aroma of vanilla and caramel. Poured super foamy, so, I had to wait a few moments before drinking. Flavor full of vanilla and caramel. It also has a hint of smoke. Textbook coloring for stout. Despite the increased BAC, it is well hidden in the flavor.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
22 oz bottle from a friend The stout poured a pitch black with small tan head that quickly dissipated and no lacing. The aroma of hazelnuts and vanilla greet you and never leaves you. The first sip was of sweet vanilla. This experience is like having a sweet desert and not a stout. This would be wonderful on dry cakes with ice cream. The stout has a medium body with soft carbonation. The sweet taste may appeal to some, but for me this is just too sweet for me..

On tap at SS. Super sweet. Guess it achieves what it is going for but just too sweet to be enjoyable. Least favorite of the blackwater series.
