Finally showing up at stores in my area.
Minimal (1/4 inch or so) creamy tan "head". The dominate aroma is vanilla. There is spice and burnt sugar. For me, this tastes like it smells. Overly dominated by vanilla. It is far to sweet. The flavor is good....hints of coffee...bit of chocolate malt. But the vanilla and sweetness got to be to much. This from a person that loves creme brulee..loves stout...loves creme brulee with stout. ;-).
Mouthfeel is smooth and creamy.
Drinkability suffers due to the sweetness. A dessert beer of course. It really needs a pairing to cut the sweetness.
I'm looking forward to seeing how it ages. I'm hoping the vanilla fades just a bit.
