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

3.91/5 rDev +0.8%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75
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.
