look: 4 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

GLASS: Chimay Goblet
TEMP: Chilled to approx 45 degrees
Acquired from corey0212 in Comic Book BIF (Thanks so much!)

Super dark ruby colored liquid. Nice, quickly dissipating head. No retention. Minimal lacing.

The smell is pure Creme Brulee. No doubt about that. One of the best noses on a beer, ever. Lots of sweet cream and buttery caramel notes. Delicious brown sugar. Butter toffee. Tons of vanilla. My neighbors can probably smell this one, down the street. Powerful.

Much like the nose. Big Creme Brulee taste right upfront. Brown sugar caramalized with butter and vanilla. Lucious sweet cream. Big stout maltiness follows, which brings amazing balance to the sweetness. Coffee notes mix with hints of marshmallows. Very slight hop bite. Just a hint of the alcohol content.
This is almost perfect. With just a touch more sweetness and vanilla, then take down the bite of the hops a little bit more...perfection.

The mouthfeel could be just a tiny bit more full/thick. As it is, it's lovely. Very smooth and silky. Super easy going down.

If I had regular access to Southern Tier, this would probably be my number one beer choice, my have to have on hand at all times.
I could easily drink a bomber of this in three swallows, maybe even two. It's that good.

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.
