4.05/5 rDev +4.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.5
A - Jet black pour into a La Guillotine snifter glass yielding a one finger thick light brown head that quickly settles to a very thin layer with clingy lacing (4)
S - Strong nose of vanilla upfront with a milky backing and notes of chocolate and caramel (4.5)
T - Big caramel sweetness upfront along with flavors of vanilla, chocolate and molasses blended with alcohol; bitterness was revealed in the middle with burnt flavors and toffee candy in the finish which was well above moderate bitterness (4)
M - Full bodied and slightly syrupy and sticky with just the right amount of carbonation; creamy smooth and goes down with some warming (4.5)
D - Very flavorful desert stout despite being a tad too bitter. However it is admittedly pretty heavy and filling; alcohol is fairly evident as this goes down with significant warming. Definitely something for sharing and sipping on a chilly night (3.5)
Taste was almost a 4.5 but the harsh and overly bitter finish detracted it a bit unfortunately

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'.
