BIG props to my BA in crime Andrenaline for including this in his latest shipment
A - pitch black, a short mocha head after a fairly aggresive pour, some random lacing
S - intense milky chocolate, caramel, marshmallow, light coffee and a hint of booziness, very tantalizing
T - milk chocolate, vanilla cream, caramel, coffee liquor, and a bit of roastiness, it's insane how much it tastes like rich creme brule
M - big body, creamy but not too heavy, thins out as the booze warms the stomach
O - its a liquid desert, this one could creep up on you in a hurry if you're not careful

Poured into a Gulden Draak tulip. Pours a very dark brown, appearing black. One finger fine medium brown head with good retention and lacing. Delicious crème brulee aroma wafts out of the bottle as this is poured. Dark, sweet malt, brown sugar, vanilla aroma, smells delicious. Very sweet, butterscotch, brown sugar, sweet malt and a hint of coffee with a very light hop kick at the end. Very creamy and full bodied. This is a bit sweet, but absolutely delicious.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Appearance. Pours a deep, deep brown with a thin, light tan head.

Smell. Huge butterscotch and sweet vanilla custard. Just a hint of roasty malt and booze.

Taste. Sweet butterscotch, a little toasty malt and a bit of sponge toffee.

Mouthfeel. Medium + body with medium-low carbonation.

Overall. Sweet, but not as much as the smell would make you think. Something seems artificial here. Glad I tried it but not my thing.

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

Served in a snifter.

Appearance: The darkest of the dark, basically black with a tan head which comes off maybe 1/2" off the body.

Smell: Really, this awkwardly smells like dessert, hints of vanilla all over....it's still in my nose after setting the glass down. Only reason it's not a five is because it may not appeal to everyone.

Taste: Vanilla, butterscotch, slight slight chocolate with mixed caramel. I want to rate this higher in all honesty I really do, but I haven't fallen in love with it. It is definitely an acquired taste that you might like quickly, but you get tired of it just as quick.

Mouth: Medium carbonation which comes off borderline light.

Overall: Recommend buying, treat yourself after dinner....F' your dessert, this is the real treat. Salud!

I poured this beer into a snifter, like the bottle says to. It has a nice black body with about a 1" mocha colored head. The smell is fabolous, some chocolate, and some butterscotch. The taste is chocolty, with vanilla and butterscoth, very sweet. Has a nice mouth feel and is defently a sipping beer cuz of the sweetness. Overall a really good beer, i would drink this one again.

A – Pours a deep black color with a single finger mocha colored head that disappears very fast.

S – Smells like candy. Lots of sweet vanilla along with light hints of chocolate.

T – Again the sweetness is present but not as strong as the aroma. Some roasted malt in there which provides small amounts of coffee and chocolate.

M – Light medium bodied which was a surprise because of how dark the beer was. Carbonation was a little lacking.

O – This beer was way too sweet for me. The aroma was over the top and way to candy like. This was a one-time try for me I won’t buy this one again.
