Dark brown, almost black with a medium sized frothy tan head. Aroma is intense sweet and sugary with vanillin, caramel, milk chocolate and some licorice notes. Taste is sweet. Medium to full bodied bodied, soft carbonation. Finish is sweet with dark sugar, caramel, vanilla and milk chocolate.
The creme brulée is there but it’s too sweet and the vanilla is over the top.
Bottle a few years old now. This has held up much better than I’d thought. Deep black with light brown edges. Nose is massive vanilla, lightly toasted caramel. Taste is quite sweet, cloying. Flavor of creme brûlée. As you’d expect they nail the nose and flavor on this but ultimately, just to rich for more than a couple of ounces. Vestergaard (2089) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - SEP 1, 2016
From bottle. Pours an almost pitch black with a small tan head. Aroma has baileys, dooley’s, dumle, vanilla, candy, cream caramel, toffee, cacao milk, light roast. Taste is sweet, candy... All candy! And then a pretty roasty finish. Average carbonation and a medium full body. v8powered (157) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JUL 28, 2016
Pours dark black with light white head. Aroma of burnt Carmel and vanilla. Taste is a touch bitter, mostly from a really burnt carmel flavor. Very malty with strong vanilla carmel flavors. Aftertaste has a lot of burnt carmel to it. Don't like the bitterness. If the bitterness was gone, it would be smoother and better allowing more flavor to come through.

Had on tap in London - absolutely delicious - pudding in a glass. Viscous, sweet, strong - creamy vanilla caramel taste.

Samples at 05-15-16 Public Day. Pours a dark brown with small foamy off-white head. Aromas of vanilla, toffee, burnt sugars, lactose, caramel. Flavor followed the nose pretty well, but it was overly sweet. Full body, thinner texture, average carbonation, very sweet finish. It’s solid for the style and what it’s meant to be, a dessert beer. If you love sweet and big flavored stouts then you’ll love it. It was just too much for me. Fujimo2000 (194) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - MAY 16, 2016
Pours mocha with a lingering lacing. Aroma is vanilla and Carmel. Taste is hops that's just a little too bitter for me. Was expecting a sweeter beer.
