bottle with a diatribe about who first discovered burnt sugar, the English, Spanish, or French. Who cares? Pours deep dark amber with ruby edges capped by an tan head with slight retention. Nose is all vanilla and burnt sugar. Body is big silky smooth. Taste is on the sweet side with plenty of vanilla and caramel. Burned sugar in the finish. Good on its own merits.

This beer is amazing. It’s biggest strength is its delicious aroma. It is a toasty caramel vanilla. The flavor matched the aroma. In the glass it has a nice thick head.

On tap, Erzbierschof, Winterthur – It’s simply a crème brûlée in the nose, amazing, very sweet taste, in the palate you get some roast aromas and quite a bitter finish. Could be a bit more of a stout but very interesting!

This beer is basically a dessert. Poured from a bomber into my St. Bernardus chalice. Deep brown, reddish around the edges. Minimal head and lacing. Aroma is heavy butterscotch and vanilla. Taste follows the aroma, along with coffee notes. Some booze warmth in there as well. Little to no carbonation, the mouthfeel is sugary sticky. Overall, enjoyable brew if you are looking for something sweet.
I pulled this one out of the fridge because the kids were having root beer floats and I thought I'd give it a shot. Poured some of this on a scoop of vanilla - didn't care for it. A lot of booze ended up coming through in the "beer float".

Bomber bought through Brill & Co. Pours close to black with a frothy mocha head that slowly dissipates while leaving a small trace on the glass. Smell is very sweet with roasted malts, french toast, lots of vanilla, alcohol, butterscotch hard candy, caramel, roasted malts and some very sweet low quality chocolate. taste is sweet and bitter with roasted malts, caramel, vanilla, buttery toast, burnt wood and alcohol. Mouthfeel is cloying sticky sweet, boozy, tiny watery and medium bodied. Finish is sweet and bitter with toast, vanilla, caramel, butterscotch hard candy and charred wood. Sweetness is really over the top.

Pours dark black with thin tan head. Nose has extremely strong vanilla notes. Smooth mouth feel with the 9.6abv coming through on the finish. Awesome heavy stout, perfect as a dessert drink.

Nice pour resulting in good head.
Immediate slightly sweet vanilla taste which lingers on the tongue and nose after swallowing. One is just right, two would be too many

The aroma from the bottle after opened is like no other for those creme brûlée fans. Taste that follows is very good as well. Just a great imperial stout. If there ever was a desert beer, this is it. I just like to have my desert first!
