22 oz bottle, 2010 vintage.

appears jet black, very little head that fades to stillness. wow, aroma is just like creme brulee.

taste is surprisingly not a sweet as the smell. but still, the roasty malt flavor of the imperial stout is overtaken by flavors of caramel, burnt sugar, cream, and vanilla. thick and rich, with just enough carbonation.

overall, definitely a dessert beer. I can see how this is a polarizing beer, but I like it.

A: Dark burgundy/black with a frothy tan head that soon subsides to sticky lacing around the fringes.

S: Just wow. A really strong, sugary, sweet aroma with vanilla, caramel, custard, a hint of berries, just a really rich and full scent. Exactly what you'd expect from the name.

T/M: This is truly like drinking a creme brulee. Sweet and sugary, with delicious, custardy vanilla flavors and a bit of warming alcohol around the edges.

O: An amazing and really original beer. You'd never guess its ABV because it's such a smooth and drinkable brew.
