Had fake/chemical taste. I love ST but really disliked the taste of this beer.

WOW! Big beer! Delicious sweet, vanilla fresh brewed coffee aroma and black pour with virtually no head. Super rich & sweet and unfortunately I'm burdened with the task of finishing this big bottle of black power. Would be better in a standard strength ABV offering.

Been waiting for this to come out for months. I've been warned that it was too sweet but it's not. Smells wonderful, pours a beautiful dark color and tastes even better.

This beer is not as good as it smells. Nor does it have the best mouthfeel in the world. But damned it it doesn't smell good!

Appearance: Dark, black as night not as lot of head, but it does have a lingering amount that sticks to the side of the glass.

Smell: About the best smelling beer I have ever found. Lot of creme brulee and vanilla in the aroma. No doubt! This is one of the better smelling beers you will ever run across. But it really doesn't live up to the aroma.

Taste: Some vanilla is present but it does not have the viscosity that you expect from the nose. This is by no means a bad tasting beer but it doesn't do what you would expect from the nose.

Overall: Solid beer but there are better offerings out there. Not a bad beer by any stretch but it it is not as good as the aroma would lead you to believe it is.

Creamy and sweet, this beer isn't for everyone. One would have to rank it in its own category. For what it is - a delicious stout that actually tastes like Creme Brule - its very close to perfect.
