A - Pitch black body with a small, bubbly head and lots of sticky lacing.

S - SUPER sweet dessert sugars. Creme brulee, butterscotch pudding, caramelized, sweet sugars and alcohol. Hints of tootsie rolls and vanilla extract. Wow.

T - Creamy, sweet, burnt sugar. Brown sugar and egg custards, like flan. Caramel, butterscotch and toffee notes there too. Warm sugary alcohol and vanilla bean ice cream.

M - Soft, smooth and sweet with a sticky medium body. A bit warming with the abv appropriate to the level of sweetness and style. The abv helps the bold character along.

O - Incredibly balanced dessert beer with big flavors.

Interesting nose, enticing and inviting.

I found that this is an excellent example of a beer with lots of vanilla extract in it. Too much for my taste. Right balance of hops with the sweetness and milk stout style.

Definitely a dessert beer, but not worth the effort.
