look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Appearance: Deep brown/black, small but solid head. Opaque. Looks tasty.

Smell: Definitely creamy and sugary. Actually smells a LOT like creme brulee. Not much as far as familiar beer-y smells, but that's not a bad thing here. I honestly can't stop thinking about cracking the caramelized top. Yum. Naturally, there's some caramel there, too.

Taste: Sweetness and bitterness up front, mingles into mild bitterness on the way out. A nice smoothness.Well-balanced by my measure except for a moment midway through the taste when the bitterness overwhelms the sweet side, but only for a second.

Mouthfeel: Medium body, smooth for the most part, carbonation just right for me.

Overall: I really like this. Definitely a desserty beer, but good. 9/10 would drink again.

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

Appearance: Deep black in color, with a large, sense, and persistent tan head. Thick, scattered lacing adorns the glass walls

Aroma: Profound aroma of vanilla, caramel, butterscotch and coffee, the aroma is so palpable, one can almost taste it.

Taste: Opens with a massive wave of vanilla and caramel, followed by a surge of espresso. Later in the taste, bitter cocoa comes to the fore. Throughout the taste, the vanilla is omnipresent, at first dominating, and then as a pronounced undercurrent. There is a modest hop presence, or perhaps it isn't modest, but is overwhelmed by the vanilla, caramel, and coffee. Nonetheless, its serves as a counterpoint to the sweetness of this beer. Finishes with a lingering herbal bitterness and a sweet vanilla and caramel flavor.
The high alcohol content (9.6% ABV) is superbly concealed.

Mouth feel: Smooth, soft, and quite full.

Drinkability/notes: Absolutely excellent, a stupendous and over-the-top dessert beer.

Presentation: Packaged in a twenty-two ounce brown glass bomber with a pry-off crown, served in a New Belgium Brewing chalice.

Sourcing: Purchased at Spec's in Austin, Texas in June of 2013, for $9.99 plus tax for a twenty-two ounce bomber.
