Drank from a snifter.
A: Dark brown with a frothy head that doesn't hang around for too long.
S: Massive sweetness... tons of burnt sugar/caramel! Smells exactly like creme brulee.
T: It is sweet, but not as sweet as the nose led me to believe it would be. I'm getting chocolate and a good amount of coffee.
D: The flavor is good, but I can't even convey how much sweetness is in the aroma. I actually like a sweet stout but this is hard to get past. Glad I split the bottle w/someone, because this much sweetness would've gotten old quick. Interesting though - I probably will try again, but will wait until it's closer to the holidays since it's got more of that vibe.

On tap at the Local Taphouse, way back in October 2012 I think. Reviewed from notes.
Pours a dark brown colour, lovely nitro head; yellowish beige nice and dense, retaining beautifully. Looks beautiful.
Fuck. Me. Holy shit that smells as good as God's favourite fried chicken restaurant kitchen. But completely unlike a fried chicken restaurant kitchen, more like caramel, toasty and sweet and vanilla custard. Notwithstanding it just smells amazingly different for a beer, it just smells fucking delicious. Holy shit.
Taste is similar. Bit of roasty malt around the edges, but loads more of that milky, custardy goodness. Yeah, caramel with slight nutty edge and some slight darker edge which needn't be there but still makes you feel like it's keeping it more grounded. Retains a bitterness on the back but for the most part, amazingly sweet desserty beer, so smooth and creamy. It's becoming a cliché in my tasting this beer but holy shit.
Smooth, velvety. Just a whisper of booze on the back. Lovely feel.
About as miraculous a dessert beer as you could dream of. Sweet, delicious, yet without being bogged down in its own self satisfaction. Slight edge to keep you drinking, as if more enticements were needed.
