Poured on tap from the brewery during my visit yesterday. Although the weather (hot and humid) wasn't really the time to be drinking a beer like this I did enjoy it and think it's another beer that is quite interesting. Don't know if they were going for this, but to me it tasted like a beer version of chocolate chip ice-cream.

Pours a redish brown, clear but dark, small white head on top.
Nose: caramel, vanilla, chocolate, toffee all blended together to make me think of a decadent dessert.
Taste: honestly, tasted like chocolate chip ice cream and that's really all I could think about. In-fact, this would make an excellent beer float (never had one, but this beer would work great for it).
Mouthfeel: semi-cloying but somewhat crisp.

Overall: Dessert in a glass, interesting and well done, just a bit too sweet for my savory taste...
