4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a beautiful, dark brown with a slight off-white head that quickly dissipates. Minimal lacing. Aroma is distinctly of brunt sugar and vanilla bean. Note that I wrote vanilla *bean* and not merely vanilla--there is a real depth and complexity to the aroma that many beers with vanilla lack. Taste is definitely sweet owing to, what else, the sugar and vanilla. Where it not offset by a slight bitter-sour aftertaste of toasted malts and hops, I’d swear this beer was not a stout at all. Mouthfeel is thick and velvety with some slight carbonation. In summary, a true "dessert" beer where the name accurately describes the contents--no "truth in advertising" issues here whatsoever. If you have a sweet tooth, run to try this one *immediately*. As I have a proclivity for all things sweet, sugary, and in general bad for me, I give this beer my highest recommendation. Cheers!

Bomber from Captain Jack’s in Bismarck. Appearance: slight tan head, black color, opaque, film of head remains. Aroma: chocolate, roast, vanilla, very sweet aroma, creme brulee! Palate: full body, soft carbonation, oily texture, bitter finish. Taste: sweet chocolate and vanilla with some alcohol coming through almost immediately, dark chocolate bitterness coming in on the end. Super good, very nice beer, really enjoyable.

Bottle. Poured black with little to no head. This beer was just way too sweet for me. Sickly sweet, strong vanilla, caramel malts, can taste the alcohol.

Smells like creme brulee go figure.Pours reddish black. Very mild head that dissipates quickly. Very sweet almost rum lead. Would be great with ice cream. Finishes with cocoa butter flavor. Thin mouth feel with a bit of carbonation. Good but too sweet.

Black pour with a thin light khaki head that dissipates a little quick. Dessert like aroma with creamy nougat and caramelised sugar and a little chocolatiness. Lovely flavor with some creaminess, cocoa, butterscotch, cherry, and sugary chocolaty tones.

It's an experience a way to drink a crème brûlée and a beer in the same time. A lot of vanilla and the cheesecake is a surprise ...
