Bought for nearly 10 dollars at the local LCBO. Based on all the hype I've seen on BA I just had to try it.
I give this beer a relatively high mark, simply because it provides what it claims to. This beer smells and tastes like creme brulee. I've tried vanilla-this, pumpkin-that, apricot-the-other-thing...only to be disappointed by the lack of advertised flavour. This beer actually tastes like dessert.
I actually don't find this cloyingly sweet like other reviewers, but it definitely is something to be shared or enjoyed in extreme moderation. Never thought 650ml of anything would be too much for me, but this might be the exception.
I doubt I'll buy another of these, but I'm glad I got to try it. It definitely has a place...right after dinner.

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.
