Incredible! I don't know how they did it, but it smells exactly like Creme Brûlée. Big vanilla and even bigger maple syrup, right up front and sticks to your nose for a while. Just a wonderful smell.

Jet black with subtle brown highlights and fairly viscous looking. The head is a medium tan, thin, but provides attractive lacing.

Tastes just like creme brûlée, too. Maple syrup, & vanilla dominate. Its very sweet right up front and through the finish. It almost tastes a bit doughy, and is thick, too. Lower end of carbonation but a full body make this beer a true desert beer when you combine that with it's other qualities. I like it, a lot.

On tap and served in a goblet at Burp Castle.

Southern Tier's Creme Brulee pours totally black. There's about a finger or so of mocha foam crowning the beer. Head retention is pretty good and there's a decent amount of head retention. The nose has lots of vanilla and some burnt sugar, but not much else and not much in the way of aromas from actual beer. The flavor is a bit of a letdown, as burnt sugar comes to the forefront and is a bit acrid. Vanilla is also still there, and as the beer warms, a little bit of roasty coffee and dark chocolate becomes apparent. The body is nice, full and just a little bit creamy, and paired with a nicely subdued carbonation. Creme Brulee is an interesting idea for a beer, but in execution the flavoring is a bit over the top.
