Poured into a large snifter glass. The beer pours black with thick light tan head and lots of visible carbonation along the side of the glass. Cracking the cap open revealed tons of vanilla in the aroma. That is the case when the beer is smelled and there's some nice dark chocolate and toffee. This is a very vanilla forward stout. The best description for the flavor is dessert in a glass. The vanilla from the aroma is present in the flavor with chocolate, toffee, and coffee like roastiness. As the beer warms up, it almost tastes like a brownie. The body is full with a thick mouthfeel. The carbonation is moderate. This is an excellent beer. Definitely one of a kind.

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.
