4/5  rDev -0.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

had on tap tonight, second beer of the night, on tap in tulip at kuhnhenn

appearance - black in low light conditions, thin head if any that quickly dissipated, little cabonation

smell - smelled of sweet vanilla up front with nice roasted malts, then faded into a nice coffee scent, best part of this beer was the smell, that alone was enough for me to want to drink it

taste - followed nose, started off vanilla with a nice sweet roasted malt following, then that moved into a watery malty taste with possibly a bit of dark chocolate but that was a streatch, followed by a nice coffee flavor, over all it was balanced going from a moderate sweet vanilla and moving into a mildly bitter coffee, after taste was of a frozen vanilla cappuccino, will order again

mouthfeel - a bit watery for me based off of the style and my experience with both creme brule stout by souther tier and FBS, i would have liked a bit thicker with this type of flavor i prefer a thicker mouthfeel to pair with the above normal flavoring but over all pleasant still, went down very easily

drinkability - this is a very drinkable beer, went down a bit too easy for me and got a glass of water after it to prepare for the impending drive home, would gladly grab a growler and enjoy from the safety of my own house, if you are a fan of souther tier creme brule stout and FBS this is the perfect marriage of the 2

the score may be low due to mouthfeel as stated i prefer a thicker beer when flavored like this but overall this was a tasty brew

Serving type: on-tap
