A--Dark brown espresso with a tan mocha head. Vanishes quickly.
S--GREAT nose. Butter cream frosting, birthday cake, molasses, custard, vanilla, milky sweet cream. Wow, smells like walking into a damn bakery. Try inhaling this one right as you take a sip.
T--Double espresso meets birthday cake. Over roasted coffee beans, coffee liquer, and some bitter charcoal that was not at all in the smell. Alcohol is noticeable and could be a bit more mellow. Sweetness is not cloing or overwhelming, but certainly does show up in the form of burnt brown sugar, dark molasses, lactose. Gets better and better as it warms, and more and more of the creme brulee flavor shines through.
M--Thick and luscious.
Overall, this one is pretty good. I thought it was more weird than good. You could tell how much sugar was in there, but it didn't quite make it completely to the surface? Just a very interesting take on a sweet milk stout.

A: Cola brown with a very thin mocha colored head. Some spotty lacing down the glass.

S: Wowzers! Tons of vanilla right off the bat. I could smell it from a few feet away. Toffee, caramel and a bit of bourbon too. Really incredible and unique smell.

T: Doesn't quite live up to the smell, but it's still really amazing stuff. Big layers of vanilla and burnt brown sugar with hints of caramel and a touch of roasted malt on the finish with some charred brown sugar. Tastes like a creme brulee. Really nicely done.
