I was shocked how much this reminded me of artificial sugar and fake vanilla. This was the first large format that I didn't continue past half a glass.

One word: Vanilla...and tons of it. Way too much vanilla for my liking.

Smell is of all caramel and delicious. The taste gives more roastiness just like a creme brulee. This stout is just as advertised. A nice dessert.

This beer is amazing! A friend bought it on a whim since he enjoyed creme brulee creamer. I was skeptical until I smelled it--you'd swear it was a cup of dessert! Nicely sweet, awesome roast, not boozy. This is a "panty dropper".

i have had a few thousand beers in my day but this one takes the cake as my second favorite beer of all time. if you don't like sweet beer or butterscotch this beer isn't for you. i am a stout guy by the way and i like sweet stouts but any sweeter then this one and its to much. founders big luscious for example is to sweet but this one is on the mark

Very smooth with a touch of sweetness, even used a bottle for a batch of ribs on did in the crock pot that gave the ribs a nice sweet note to them that even carried through sometime in the smoker

Murky dark Tootsie Roll brown with khaki head; toffee and caramel candy/sugar beet notes; toffee and caramel candy flavors; mouthfeel is medium with big chewy candy tongue coating; rich sweet malt, toffee and caramel - like drinking liquid creme brûlée dessert.

Very good beer. Was pleasantly surprised by the vanilla influence. Very sweet at first, but the slight bitterness really mellows it out. Very nice after dinner drink. Nice warm feeling from the alcohol, but it is masked very well. Nice change of pass.
