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

Pours a black body with dark chocolate highlights. Head is very thin, eighth of an inch. Lacing and head retention were average.

Smell is of sweet vanilla tootsie rolls. Little bit of burnt caramel also comes through. Some alcohol is present but this beer is pretty much a sugar bomb.

Taste is full of creme brûlée, especially vanilla. Bits of burnt malt and alcohol compliment the sweetness, could swear theres some run or bourbon in here. Hops are non existent.

Mouthfeel is full of carbonation, body is a bit on the lighter side. Head faded unfortunately, wish beer was fuller.

Overall this was a pretty good dessert beer. It was pretty sweet but not anywhere near as bad as people on this site make it seem. This stout drinks well for being almost 10 percent but it needs more malts or alcohol to cut the sweetness. Not my favorite of the Southern Tier Stouts

Poured the stout into a snifter glass and an off-white tan colored head did form but quickly retreated to a slight layer along the top. First aroma and most pronounced is the vanilla. If there is any others I'm not getting them. Well, I guess the milk/cream aspect is quite prevalent too. Tastes like a very sweet, vanilla, creme brulee; as it should. The carbonation is quite decent for a stout and the smooth, creamy texture is pleasant as it finishes. Warming from the alcohol is a yes and the alcohol content is hidden considering all you taste is sugar sweetness. In the end, this was a delight to drink though I only could do half the 22oz cause it was so rich. I really enjoyed this stout but the high-level sweetness is probably not for everyone.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Color- near black with mahogany hint. Medium head tinted mocha foam.

Aroma- coffee cup with splash of coffee topped off with vanilla liqueur.

Taste- Wow! Starts sweet dominated by vanilla like the first vanilla float, then gets a bit roasty, finishing with a dry lingering hint of hop. This would be a perfect brew to add vanilla ice cream to for desert or make a beer float!

Poured from 650 ml bomber into a Liefmans Goudenband glass (my preferred all purpose beer tasting glass). Tasted on 7/20/2013.
