Bomber poured int Teku glass

A- Jet black with thin, swirly-tan head. Leaving a bit of lacing
S- Vanilla! Boom! Like smelling vanilla extract. A bit of carmel too.
T- Very sweet vanilla from front to back. A bit of bitterness and malts up front. Almost goes to a boozy place, but the sweetness keeps that from happening.
M- Middle of the road stout. Not chewy or thin. Leaves your mouth sticky with saliva.

O- I like a glass or two of this. Couldn't drink a ton of it because of the sweetness. I can understand that it isn't everyones cup of tea given the almost single note of vanilla and being so sweet.

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.
