Pours out a pitch black color with a light tan head that leaves a lot of lace. The aroma is overwhelmingly of brown sugar, syrup, caramel, and creamy coffee. The taste follows the smell. The taste is wonderful - kind of weird at first but still amazing. The Creme Brulee tastes like brown sugar and coffee-flavored cream...or maple syrup and pancakes (like i said, weird at first but still good). Slight roasted malt notes appear towards the end. It has a full body and feels heavy and excellent in the mouth. The intense sugar and syrup qualities of this beer knocked down the drinkability score...i can;t imagine drinking more than one of these at a time.
Anyway, Southern Tier surprised me again with this beer and how amazing they are. Well done.

2013 - On tap. Part of a flight which included So. Tier Creme Brulee, Java Head, Imperial OAT & Founders Breakfast Stout.
Uber flavors here. Doubt there's any vanilla left in Madagascar after they made this. Chocolate, some coffee & just enough sweet to hit the spot. Not just for the freak effect, this is an excercise in what can be done. Well crafted and well dangerous at 9.6%.
12/20/11 After tasting this from a bottle some time ago (Thanks, Steve) I was so glad to see it untethered. This is one of those rewards for those who venture beyond their comfort zone.
Captured in my glass are a classic, though light stout with high caramel and vanilla notes. Nothing slaps your face except the uniqueness and, as Martha Stewart used to say, 'that's a good thing'.
