Had a bomber of this amongst two friends. It was hard to get down a third of the bottle so I was glad to share it.
A - Very black. A nice chocolate brown head that kept disappearing but was easy to revive with a few swirls of the glass.
S - Very sweet, almost butterscotch aroma. Some toffee. Definitely vanilla as well.
T - I was expecting more of an imperial stout, and this was very different. Butterscotch and vanilla predominately, with a sugary alcohol taste at the end. This is a great dessert beer to share after dinner!
M - Creamy, almost "chunky" but in a good way. Very thick.
D - Not too good I'm afraid. After a glass of this I was ready for a normal lager or ale, so I would not recommend getting this to drink the whole bottle. But it is a very tasty dessert beer to split amongst a few people.
I would definitely recommend this. Soutern Tier big beers have become sort of a hobby of mine, my favorite being Pumking. On a winter night I could see myself really enjoying this one. I will try it again, but not for some time.

2013 - On tap. Part of a flight which included So. Tier Creme Brulee, Java Head, Imperial OAT & Founders Breakfast Stout.
Uber flavors here. Doubt there's any vanilla left in Madagascar after they made this. Chocolate, some coffee & just enough sweet to hit the spot. Not just for the freak effect, this is an excercise in what can be done. Well crafted and well dangerous at 9.6%.
12/20/11 After tasting this from a bottle some time ago (Thanks, Steve) I was so glad to see it untethered. This is one of those rewards for those who venture beyond their comfort zone.
Captured in my glass are a classic, though light stout with high caramel and vanilla notes. Nothing slaps your face except the uniqueness and, as Martha Stewart used to say, 'that's a good thing'.
