3.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: APR 29, 2014 22 oz bottle into a pint glass.
A: Pours a very dark brown color with a one-finger khaki shaded head. It certainly looks like a stout, that’s for sure.
S: HOLY SHIZNIT. The level of vanilla, caramel, and cream I pick up on the nose is absolutely ridiculous. Of course, the sugar level is probably ridiculous, but I don’t care. The aroma is amazing.
T: The flavors, however, aren’t quite amazing. Having said that, this is probably the most caramel-forward brew I’ve ever had. Seriously, there’s so much caramel and vanilla, it’s fuckin’ ridiculous. No balance between the sweet and bitter qualities at all. But honestly? I kind of like it, even if the sweetness burns the palate.
M: I’d really like the feel to be fuller/creamier to properly support all of the over-the-top sweetness. Because of that, this is *VERY* hard to drink. The low carbonation doesn’t help it feel less cloying, either.
O: SAH-FUCKING-WEET. Sure, its actual flavor is nice, but this is so hard to imbibe it’s not even funny. Share this with about 4-6 people and you’ll thank me later.

Not really a great aroma, mostly burnt sugar and condensed milk. Not really my favorites individually, let alone in my brew. The flavor is a complete replica of the aroma and the taste is far to sweet for me, but it was good that I just got this out of the way instead of hyping it like I’ve seen this done so many times.

I enjoy sweet beers, and especially milk stouts, but I think this is my boundary. These guys make some of the best "flavored" brews out there, and this is no exception. Dark black pour with minimal brown foam. Vanilla and alcohol dominate the nose with just a bit of malt-syrup coming through. Mostly vanilla initially in the sip, followed by a nice cooked sugar and dark chocolate finish. Very creamy mouthfeel, and any aftertaste is just pleasantly sweet.

4.1 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
En bouteille. Couleur noire qui laisse passer un peu de lumière, reflet rougeâtre. Belle mousse beige. Arômes de vanille très intense, beaucoup de sucre, ça sent le dessert. Similaire au goût, légère amertume style café en fin de bouche. Le palais est un peu faible pour le style, effervescence un peu trop élevé également. Malgré tout très plaisante, une bière à essayer.

Bottle from convenience store. Pours black with a medium tan head. The aromas are chocolate, vanilla, light coffee. The mouthfeel is silky smooth with a heavy body and low carbonation. Loved this one! Cheers!

Sweet, coffee, chocolate....it's more of a spiked creme brûlée coffee. It's good

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.
