Pours a nice, 1 finger tan head after a vigorous pour. Retention is fine, and lacing is excellent. Brew is imperfectly black, almost cola color.

Smell is potent; you can pick it up from across the room while pouring. Tons of sweet notes: vanilla, caramelized and burnt brown sugar dominate. Definitely smells like a dessert. Careful appreciation also lends notes of cream, and just bare hints of chocolate and roasted barley.

Flavor is similar to what you'd expect from the nose, featuring coffee, cocoa, barley, and cream up front, with a caramelized brown sugar sweetness that starts off burnt and bitter, and builds to a sweet and dominating finish. Not quite as sweet as the nose suggests, but still certainly a dessert beer. Roastily bitter throughout.

Thick and creamy smooth mouthfeel. The dessert flavor lingers for ever. Wet, sticky, oily finish.

This may not be anyone's favorite stout, but you know what you're getting into when you buy this, and it absolutely delivers. Pretty darned sweet to tackle a bomber in one tasting.
