Split a bottle of this lovely beer the other night, I was quite excited about having something called Creme Brulee Java Stout. Sounds like heaven in a bottle! It wasn't quite that, but still good. The beer was very dark brown, reddish up to the light, with a light brown fat head that settles down to a thin layer which lasts throughout the glass. The aroma kind of got to me. It took me a few sniffs before I was OK with it. I thought it smelled like sweet sweet coffee with the slightest creaminess, some sourness, and covered in dust from some attic. Really, I got a weird musty smell mixed in with the roasty desserty goodness. Tasted better than it smelled, thankfully. There is a highly acidic flavour which helps to balance out the sweetness and roastiness of the beer, so no one taste is overpowering. I got a dry, almosty fruity (grapey?) aftertaste. Not bad. Mouthfeel was good and creamy, not too thick though. Drinkability for me is not the best- I would maybe have this again, but I wouldn't go out of my way to get ahold of a bottle. Mainly because the sour musty smell kept punching me in the face, and not in a real good way. The taste made up for that a bit, but didn't cancel it out. I was glad for the opportunity to taste it though!!
