This is a very sweet, smooth and well balanced brew. I have been waiting on this beer to get here to Alabama. This brew should be paired with a good dessert or just alone after a great meal. This brew is most definitely a panty dropper. Chicks must really love this brew as well. If you can get your hands on this brew you need to stag a few bottles. Most definitely worth it.

This beer pours out very dark with a little tan head.

The aroma is freaking huge. You get it just from opening the bottle. It is freaking huge, almost "too" big and sweet. It's caramel, vanilla, roasted, tons of sweetness, brown sugar. It's almost like Bailey's with how huge and distinct, sweet, vanilla, and creamy the aroma is.

The flavor follows with just a huge syrupy caramel, vanilla, burned sugar, tons of sweetness. The finish is the highlight because it has a good amount of bitterness that cleans up this beer.

Not a huge mouthfeel and decently drinkable because of the finish.

I would recommend sharing this with 4 people because it's so darn big of a beer. I'm into interesting beers, so this was a great treat. Not for everyone. Probably will enjoy or hate this one.
