3.46/5 rDev -10.8%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25
Appearance: Fitting appearance for the style. Opaque dark brown, almost black, with a heavy and thick tan head.
Smell: Smell is the standout feature here, I noticed the caramel and vanilla aroma as I was pouring it. Smelled like candy. Normally I'd find this a bit offputting, but I did pay for "creme brulee" stout.
Taste: The alcohol is a bit overpowering for my taste, hard to notice the caramel/vanilla (other than the smell) or even the coffee notes of the stout. I was expecting something a little sweeter.
Mouthfeel: Feel the alcohol sting a bit, but otherwise nothing notable. Stoutlike.
Overall: I was disappointed with this one. Admittedly, stouts are not my favorite styles of beer but I've had enough of them to understand the style. Thought the beer smelled great but was disappointed with the taste, the alcohol was not masked and overpowered the beer.
Serving type: bottle
