I guess I've build some karma up, because hoppymeal sent me this growlers simply because he had bought to many. Not sure how you can buy to many. Unless maybe you suddenly become a celiac or your liver stops. Either way I need to not look a gift horse in the mouth. Huge thanks to hoppymeal!
Appearance: Solid, opaque, blackish brown body. The darkest brown I've ever seen. Creates a 1/2 inch, camel beige head that quickly this to a wispy covering that leaves faint lacing around the glass.
Smell: Heavenly. I see, or should say smell, why Creme Brulee in the name for it smells just like the freshly torched desert. Burnt/caramelized sugar, vanilla, lightly roasted coffee, and sweet custard.
Taste: Beautiful levels of sweat malt, vanilla, and cream balanced by mild coffee and roasted malt bitterness. Wonderfully balanced flavor. Lingers in your mouth.
Mouthfeel: This is the beers true one flaw. It is way too thin for the stout. The body is a kin to a light ale or even a lager. The taste hangs pleasantly, but it is just too thin. Not too thin to stop drinking, but too thin for a stout.
Drinkability: Ridiculous! Can a beer be too drinkable? No, but this one is close.
Serving type: growler
