Appearance is rich black, with a brown head and light lacing.
Nose is very sweet, with cream, vanilla, and fresh caramel. Excellent.
Taste is toasted malt, sweet vanilla cream, and toasted coconut. The flavors are strong and sweet, and stay that way.
Mouthfeel is very smooth and creamy, with light carbonation.
Overall, it is decadently rich. And for the most part, it pulls it off. I would label this as a dessert beer. It starts off great, but the sweetness and richness become tiring before a full glass is finished if you don't have a dessert to pair with it.

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'.
