Poured into a snifter.
A - Black like oil. Minimal head that disappears quickly.
S - Fantastic aroma! Caramel, vanilla and coffee and other sweet things I can't think of right now.
T - This may be my favorite desert beer. A sweet stout pushed over the edge with caramel and vanilla with a touch of coffee. And then you feel a bit of alcohol burn that reminds you are NOT at Starbucks or Dairy Queen.
M - Medium mouth feel, low carbonation.
O - One of my favorite beers, and certainly my favorite milk stout. I could drink this all the time.

DoB: 6/6/13

Almost 2 years old sitting in my cellar for that long.

Look dark rich color with tan thick head.

Rich caramel flavor- intoxicating

Very sweet strong caramel flavor, really nailed the Creme Brûlée.

Thin taste, almost feels like its robbing such a great beer with such a thin mouth feel.

Poured from pint and a half bottle into pint glass. Poured a little less than room temp, poured a dark opaque brown, not quite black. Very minimal head (probably due to the temp). Smells GREAT, smells of vanilla, Carmel, brown sugar, malt, and coffee. Most notable is the Carmel to me. Tastes good at first, like vanilla and Carmel, but the after taste is very alcoholic and medicinal, nearly ruins it. The carbonation is slightly less than what I prefer, and it seems a bit thin for a stout. Overall it's nothing that great, but the smell IS remarkable.

Great smell. Nice porter taste. Creme Brulee taste not over powering

This beer is absolutely horrible. The smell is obnoxious and unappealing. The taste is worse. It has one of the worst aftertastes I've ever experienced; somewhat medicinal and just downright nasty. The beer looks good, however; its opaque, almost black, and pours a nice tan, one finger head. Unfortunately, it's all looks, and no taste. I couldn't finish this one. I read other descriptions and I guess my taste buds aren't refined enough because I didn't taste cocoa, chocolate, Creme brûlée, vanilla or anything else described in this beer. It's horribly sweet and unappealing. Won't be buying this again.

Sweet like candy but with a strong bitter aftertaste that kind of kills the beer for me.

Tastes slightly less sweet than it smells but both smell and taste are very sweet. Much sweeter than I expected, making it a one 1/2 pint drinker. Let me be clear, I enjoy sweet beers but this one was a bit much and it overpowered the good flavour profiles.

Nice black pour into the glass. Thin, wispy head. Very potent smell of caramel and vanilla. It tastes like it smells, with the caramel really shining through as the biggest flavor. Only problem is it takes on a bubblegum taste as it warms. Overall, I really like it, and will get it again. Nice sweet dessert stout great as an after dinner drink.

Dark black body, no head. Lovely vanilla heavy nose... Smells so good! Boozey warming and some vanilla. Kinda bitter. Too much booze. Decent body for an imperial stout. Smells better than it tastes. I wanted to like this as much as Choklat! Booze killed it for me.

Aggressive pour in my sniffer glass with minimal head. Jet black. Vanilla and maybe caramel nose. Bold vanilla and pretty sweet full body. Would have liked to share, maybe a little sweet for me. Drinks better after sitting awhile. Alcohol well hidden.

Well, that was interesting.

Nose- Burnt caramel, vanilla, sugar, glazed icing

Taste- butterscotch and vanilla upfront with a horrific fake sugar aftertaste. Almost medicinal and cloying. Like fake Equal meets fake Splenda.

Definitely a dessert beer with a good nose but the Splenda/fake aftertaste really killed this beer for me.

Lots of vanilla and fairly sweet. The name fits, definitely good for dessert.

I was shocked how much this reminded me of artificial sugar and fake vanilla. This was the first large format that I didn't continue past half a glass.
