Enjoyed on tap at Bier Station in Kansas City. Was tapped on 6-20-2013 as part of a Southern Tier tap takeover. Served in a small wide tulip glass.
A - Pours a dark, oily walnut brown with almost zero clarity. Slightly translucent around the edges. Head is creamy, about 3/4th finger and dissipates quickly, leaving a rim of foam around the edge of the glass. Lacing is slick and faint.
S - This is straight-up caramel and sweetness. Like a caramel macchiato. Very little of the chocolate-y charachetristics that come with milk stouts. If the taste is as sweet as the aroma, this is going to be like a melted milkshake. The name is very apt.
T - Thankfully, the sweetness is much more muted, but still present. Dulce de leche, cinnamon and vanilla overtones on a faint bittersweet base like burnt sugar. Reminds me a bit of a lighter, drier Kahlua.
M - Viscous and creamy with medium-to-heavy body. Light carbonation is just the right amonunt to keep it from feeling slimy. Lingering and sticky aftertaste.
Overall a unique and delightful beer. Would be perfect with the right desserts. Or AS dessert to be honest. Very tasty, but I do have a bit of a sweet tooth, so be warned. Definitely a sipping beer.

This is a unique beer. It's a sweet stout that smells and tastes like you're dining on an actual crème brulee. The aroma is overwhelming with vanilla and caramel. The taste follows the nose and the mouthfeel is silky smooth and slightly viscous with low carbonation. You can skip ordering dessert and just have some of this instead. I wouldn't drink this beer after mowing the lawn, but after a fine meal, it would perfectly hit the spot.

Poured from the 22oz bottle into a large tulip.
Pours dark molasses with minimal caramel head.
Smell is insane. Sweet vanilla, caramelized sugar, roasty malts. Perfection for what ST was going for with this beer. This smells more like a creme brulee than the real thing.
Taste is amazing as well. Maybe a touch muted from the nose, but totally delicious.
Mouthfeel was a touch thin for a stout. I would have enjoyed a touch more body.
Overall, this beer is amazing. A real eye opener.
