look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

22oz bottle, bottled on 06/10/13. Served in a snifter glass.

Appearance: Black, with a thin tan head and thick ring at the edge. Plenty of delicate strands of lacing.

Smell: Tons of vanilla and buttery toffee. Maybe the barest hint of orange with a really good swirl of the glass. A dessert in a glass.

Taste: Bitter roasted malt, vanilla, buttery toffee, black coffee, hint of pine at the finish.

Mouthfeel: Nicely thick, creamy. Good carbonation, but I think the mouthfeel would be even better if the carbonation was a tiny bit less.

Overall / Drinkability: Very well done beer and definitely a dessert complimenting beer. When I had this with vanilla ice cream as recommended on the bottle, the bitterness really came out and complimented the ice cream. Sweet aroma with bitter roast compliment to the ice cream. Once I finished the ice cream and let my palate rest a bit, then all the sweetness in this beer came out. Even then, the sweetness was tempered by the roasted malt and hop bitterness. While I want another bottle to crack open right now, I know I should not have a second one of these in a sitting. That being said, a big glass of this beer with dessert is fantastic.

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'.

Serving type: on-tap
