A: 1/4" tan coloured head over cola/black liquid.

S: Extremely sweet caramel and vanilla.

T: Vanilla, caramel, coconut and some coffee and bitter hops on the back end.

M: Medium to thick viscosity and a medium level of carbonation.

O: Its dessert in a glass, but is sickly sweet. I'm going to have a hard time drinking this all to myself.

Picked this one up out of curiosity. I tend to like some sweet beers, so let's see how this does. 22oz into a snifter.

A: Pours black with a small light tan head.

S: Smells like straight butterscotch. Not sure how I feel about that.

T: Taste is a little more held back, with big notes of vanilla, butterscotch, caramel, lactose. Slightly astringent hop bitterness gives a little balance. Astringent roasty note on the end.

M: Between medium and thick-bodied with moderate carbonation.

O: Sort of an odd beer. It would taste better if the roasted malt/hop bitterness weren't as astringent. Not very drinkable.

Pour from a 22oz bomber into my snifter

A- pours a opaque black, black as night. Little tan head, quickly dissolves to nothing.

S- smells like.... whoa creme brulee! OK it's reminiscent of it... tons of vanilla tagged along by sweet caramel and chocolate....only if your nose had sweet tooth

T- lots of caramel malt, lactose sugar which may be helping the huge vanilla and chocolate undertones coming through.

M- a tad slick and oily... thinner body than appearance perceives. Light hop bite to clean up the palate so it doesn't become so cloying.

O- I enjoy the black water series from ST... they are really great paired with desserts. Something to grab with a friend and sit back and enjoy
