Creme Brulee (Imperial Milk Stout)

Second time I have had this beer, this time on tap at Taco Mac, Douglasvile, GA, USA. Approx. 11 oz pour.
Other review (with more notes) for reference, here;

The beer does have a slightly disappointing look in terms of head (or lack of it), even taking the ABV into full consideration.
The overwhelming experience here remains the toffee elements and the sweetness. On draft it seemed a little lighter than the bottle and the body was less intense. The outcome was that the beer became more drinkable in one way (in as much as you could drink MORE), but it a strange way less satisfying. For me, this is a beer where a more viscous, intense experience is better than a lighter, larger quantity. This particular beer works better as a liqueur-like experience.
Toffee dominates with some burned sugar in the finish.
