look: 4.25 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Appearance – Pours a very dark brown/black color with a chocolate colored creamy head. Very nice lacing.

Smell – Milk chocolate, sweet vanilla, candy corn, butterscotch, caramel, and hazelnut. There's a lot going on here!

Taste – Vanilla, malt, hazelnut, chocolate, and light booze.

Mouthfeel – Creamy, medium carbonaton, sweet with a mild boozy vanilla aftertaste, but it hides the 9.6%abv incredibly well. I felt the aftertaste lingers waaay too long.

Drinkability – A very easy drinking stout for 9.6%abv, and although it was sweet, it was fairly easy to finish a bottle.

Dark as night, creamy latte-like froth along the top. Smells like bitter chocolate and caramel. It's incredible if you like flavored stouts. Flavor follows the nose, but it's far more intense. Opens like a high ABV Stout, ends like an Iced Frappacino. What impressed me most was the finish. Your mouth is left with a feeling similar to finishing a satisfying desert, not a beer. That alone makes this beer worth being revisited.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a 750ml bottle into a stemmed tulip glass

A: A thick, opaque, black beer, poring to 3 fingers of a dark tan head, settling and thickening slowly leaving a decent amount of lacing.

S: The nose is very sweet, vanilla ice cream, caramel, malt and touch boozy.

T: The first sip tasted like coffee caramel candy, very sweet and heavy. Lots of vanilla and cream and slowly transitioning to coffee and dark roasted malts. Some bittering hops help dry the finish out but not much and the overall flavor is heavy sweetness.

M: Big body, smooth and thick, round; mild carbonation.

O: True to its name, the beer drinks like liquid crème brûlée. The caramel sweetness is so strong making it a perfect dessert beer, but in small doses. I was glad to have help with the bomber, but still, there was too much sweetness.
