look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

2011 Bottle poured into a tulip.
A: Brown and Black, decent head but doesn’t last too long.
S: Vanilla, Crème, and Caramel overwhelm while there some coco in the back. Definitely some alcohol that comes out.
T: Syrupy and vanilla flavor and caramel flavor are huge, extremely sweet beer.
M: Vanilla fills the mouth with a sugar like sweetness, and some booze on the end. Very very sweet and flavorfull.
O: Great, not the best beer ever made but a beer like nothing else I’ve had. Sooo sweet. (A)

22oz bottle (bottled 7/13/2011) poured into a snifter. Pours a pretty thin dark brown w/ a sliver of tan head that dissipates quickly.

Aroma is - well, unique. Burnt creme? Vanilla, caramel, roasted marshmallow.

Taste is syrupy sweet w/ a dark roastiness in the background. Vanilla extract, burnt marshmallows, egg custard, and condensed sweetened milk that's been left on the stove too long.

Overall, simply not a favorite. It's different, for sure - but not a beer I'll be drinking again. Bottom line, it's too sweet.

Pours a deep cocoa w/little-to-no head. Minimal lacing.

Everything about this beer is sweet. The nose: sweet caramel, vanilla extract, butterscotch.

Taste: Like the nose, it's sweet; cloyingly so. I really couldn't get any beer/malt/stout notes, whatsoever. From an interest standpoint, it lost me after the first 3 sips - after that, I just wanted to finish it and move on.

If this stout was 90% beer/stout flavored and not 90% sweet caramel/vanilla, it could be a totally different ballgame.

Not a re-buy.
