Pours a bold and close to four finger head of dark foam, airy but not wispy, has better retention than you’d think, only minor surface dimpling, the lacing is thin and haphazardly spread across the glass sides. Clean liquid if predictably opaque, like buffed onyx, tiny hint of orange at the rims. The nose is like having a German chocolate cake smashed into your face, coconut, caramel, butterscotch, chocolate, only a slight roasted edge, some candied oranges, this has a “take no prisoners” approach. Full-bodied, same story in the mouth, unbearably sweet like a hose force feeding you toffee, caramel and butterscotch. This almost makes it hard to register the vanilla and chocolate. The carbonation is super soft and adds to the fluffy character. Heavy on the Maraschino cherries and again candied oranges. Does an odd bitter twist at the end. Can’t fault it for intensity of flavor but it was a concerted effort to finish the bomber.

I found this at Sal's Liquors in Addison, IL. $8.99 for a 22oz (650ml) brown bottle. No freshness date but lots of other information anout the beer on the label.

The beer poured a very dark brown color with over 2-fingers of creamy tan head on top. The head seems to hang on forever, and it leaves lots of whispy lacing.

One of the top 10 smelling beers in the world. Huge sweet vanilla and burnt toffee aroma as well as a touch of alcohol. It smells exactly like a creme brulee.

Huge sweet vanilla and burnt toffee flavor with a surprisingly high amount of hop bitterness for balance. Not a lot of alcohol flavor initially for a 9.5% beer, but there is some lingering alcohol and bitterness in the aftertaste.

Smooth, creamy and full bodied mouthfeel with a surprisingly high amount of carbonation.

This one's on the sweet side but delicious nonetheless. It really does taste like a liquid creme brulee. Another fine beer from Southern Tier.

Appearance - The beer was a brownish-black color with a mocha head that left lacing on the sides of the glass.

Smell- In the aroma, I detected vanilla, butterscotch, and burnt sugar. In other words, it smells like crème brulee.

Taste - At the front was big vanilla, coffee, malts, burnt sugar. Perhaps another way to describe it might my a vanilla milkshake combined with a coffee stout. It was almost too sweet for my palate. In the aftertaste, one notes the continuation of the burnt malts and sugar sweetness.

Mouthfeel - I love the smoothness of milk stouts, and this one is very smooth. The vanilla probably creates the impression that the stout is even smoother.

Overall - This is definitely a desert beer. The wife loves it. In the right company, this would be a hit.

Poured Creme Brûlée into a Belgian Tulip.

A - The black brew is black as coal with a half finger of off white head.

S - Vanilla and vanilla beans and not much else.

T - Again vanilla, burnt sugars, light roasted malts mid palate.

M - Medium mouthfeel, medium carbonation.

O - It is what is says it is, Its a Creme Brûlée in a glass. Cheers!
