I'm usually a big fan of Southern Tier... and I know this clearly is suppose to taste like vanilla creme brûlée.... but wow... this was so cloyingly sweet. Imperials are typically a nice sipping beer and they are truly my favorite style ... I just couldn't take this one. This was beyond dessert beer. I let it warm to room temperature and still couldn't handle it.
A: The appearance was great; a deep dark rich pour with a nice finger of head.
S: I really liked the aroma, it really did remind me of a freshly torched Creme Brûlée with that wonderful crust to crack... and then...
T: Taste. So very very sweet. It literally tastes like an actual dessert and a cupful of sugar was mashed into a stout and puréed. Sorry, made it through about 4-6 oz thinking maybe it would change in depth or character as it warmed. Nope, just a yeasty sweet creme brûlée stuffed into a bottle.
M: Felt viscous and smooth, though again, was distracted by the taste.
O: I'm sorry, but I just would not recommend this to anyone. Southern Tier has some other excellent brews, but this they really out thought themselves.
