Murky dark Tootsie Roll brown with khaki head; toffee and caramel candy/sugar beet notes; toffee and caramel candy flavors; mouthfeel is medium with big chewy candy tongue coating; rich sweet malt, toffee and caramel - like drinking liquid creme brûlée dessert.

Very good beer. Was pleasantly surprised by the vanilla influence. Very sweet at first, but the slight bitterness really mellows it out. Very nice after dinner drink. Nice warm feeling from the alcohol, but it is masked very well. Nice change of pass.

(I didn't use to be fan of stouts. But the stuff brewery's are doing with them nowadays is changing that.)

Wow. The label doe not lie... not one bit. This is dessert in a glass. It's a beautifully dark stout with a nice frothy tan head that laces a bit at the beginning. The aroma? Well, creme brulee almost says it all. It smells just like the sweet vanilla/custard/caramelized goodness you'd order as a desert. The vanilla bean really comes across in the nose. The flavor's are like nose but more hidden behind huge sweetness. It would be too sweet if not for a nice touch of bitterness and some mild alcohol heat. The full bodied mouth feel is quite surprising at first because of the thickness, but it's very creamy and smooth. Glad I bought this. At 9.5% ABV it gets even better as it goes...

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.
