As soon as you open the bottle you are hit in the face with caramel. I said 'holy moly' this is gonna be interesting.
Pours a black, motor oil like texture, smell of sweet cream, caramel, and sugars just keep pouring out.
Smells like a ton of sugary caramel, a bit of alcohol heat, and just takes over the room with these aromas.
Tastes like creme brulee, which isn't all great in a beer. It's kind of a mix between a lot of alcohol heat, and a ton of sugar. It's a little off balance, not really well blended - but still somewhat drinkable. Not as great as the Mokah & Javah.
Overall, too sweet for me. Pleanty strong, as all the other Blackwater Souther Tier's are, but this just wasn't my favorite of them all.

A - 3.75 - dark brown-black beer with a nice head that dissipates rather quickly and doesn't leave much lacing
S - 4 - Irish cream, milk, sugar, chocolate, coffee, huge caramel, butterscotch,
T - 4 - butterscotch, caramel, coffee, chocolate, vanilla, milk, sweet cream. Exactly what I would expect from the name.
M - 3.75 - medium-heavy mouth feel, alcohol is a little too present. Aftertaste is milky chocolate and coffee, with butterscotch
O - 3.75 - its a good beer, and is what it is. But I feel like somethings missing to push it to the 92-94 level. More complexity? The flavors are a bit cloying.

For a dessert beer this one is near the top. It's a smokey butterscotch and vanilla bean offering that masks the AC well. Drinks like a 6.5 or 7% stout. If I had to summarize the experience I would say that drinking this beer was like smoking a sweet, quality cigar that had been dipped in vanilla. Served at The Brewer's Kettle in High Point.
