This beer is absolutely horrible. The smell is obnoxious and unappealing. The taste is worse. It has one of the worst aftertastes I've ever experienced; somewhat medicinal and just downright nasty. The beer looks good, however; its opaque, almost black, and pours a nice tan, one finger head. Unfortunately, it's all looks, and no taste. I couldn't finish this one. I read other descriptions and I guess my taste buds aren't refined enough because I didn't taste cocoa, chocolate, Creme brûlée, vanilla or anything else described in this beer. It's horribly sweet and unappealing. Won't be buying this again.

Sweet like candy but with a strong bitter aftertaste that kind of kills the beer for me.

Tastes slightly less sweet than it smells but both smell and taste are very sweet. Much sweeter than I expected, making it a one 1/2 pint drinker. Let me be clear, I enjoy sweet beers but this one was a bit much and it overpowered the good flavour profiles.

Nice black pour into the glass. Thin, wispy head. Very potent smell of caramel and vanilla. It tastes like it smells, with the caramel really shining through as the biggest flavor. Only problem is it takes on a bubblegum taste as it warms. Overall, I really like it, and will get it again. Nice sweet dessert stout great as an after dinner drink.

Dark black body, no head. Lovely vanilla heavy nose... Smells so good! Boozey warming and some vanilla. Kinda bitter. Too much booze. Decent body for an imperial stout. Smells better than it tastes. I wanted to like this as much as Choklat! Booze killed it for me.
