3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma was very vanilla heavy not much else. Dark Black appearance. It was a little to sweet for me and the thick vanilla syrup flavor was a little over the top. I’m surprised because I’m vanilla overr chocolate ice cream kinda guy. I would rather have Young’s Chocolate stout than this. SWEET!!!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark brown, nearly black, beer with a thin tan head that floats on the surface. Ridiculously sweet nose of toasted vanilla, butterscotch, and amaretto. Flavor is a stronger, more concentrated version of the aroma fortified with roasted malt and dark coffee flavors before finishing with a tangy bitterness. This is definitely a sweet beer, but the sweetness is counterbalanced by other flavors so as not to become cloying. A good stout for a change of pace, but I wouldn’t drink too much of it.

Bottle. This is a nice big impy with a little bit of sweetness sitting behind the burly malt body.

Not sure if this one is flavored, but its very interesting and I like it. Not very malty like most stouts are, booze is completely hidden. very vanilla latte like, quite sweet, wonderful aroma. I really like this one.

UPDATED: OCT 21, 2013 Tan head dissipates quickly. Powerful aromas of caramel. Taste caramel and vanilla. Very sweet. Slight taste of hops. This really is very sweet, and monochromatic. I had to edit my review the day after. I still cannot get the memory of the burnt plastic taste that too much vanilla gives. I don't like this one.

Pours cola brown with quickly disappearing cinnamon head. Very strong nose - smells like a bottle of kaluha...syrupy and sweet. Taste is very sweet - vanilla, caramel, some smokiness on the finish. Interesting, but a little too sweet and syrupy for me.

A wonderful vanilla base with hints of carmel and creme. Simple a well brewed stout that is like creme brûlée without an abuse of flavors like a cheap candied copy. Southern tier brews some of the best seasonals. I look forward to some new additions.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours black with a half finger of a tan head. The aroma is very sweet. Big vanilla coming through, big cream/milk smell from the lactose sugar, and a very sweet sugary smell overall. Getting some vanilla and lactose flavors up front. Some vanilla that runs all the way through. There is a bitterness on the finish that tastes almost like burnt sugar. The alcohol is slightly present on the nose and taste, but it is masked by the vanilla. The body of this beer is medium full, which I would say is thin for what the beer is supposed to taste like.

This beer is exactly what it says it is. Tastes like your drinking a creme brûlée. Maybe a little too sweet but I can't complain because it is what it sai it is.
Dark and heavy. Good for a cold winter night

Bottle. From I forget. Great aroma. Sweet. Yup creme brulee. Burnt caramel. Dark brown color. Good head and lace. Sweet flavor. Thick body creamy mouthfeel. Sweet bitter dry finish. Darn tasty. Aroma best part. It is creme brulee. Flavor close too. Wonderful stuff maybe a tad sweet I. The big picture. But solid
