Wow, where to start. After reading some pretty harsh reviews I had to give this a try. When I opened the bottle the vanilla sweetness filled the room....Mouth feel was fine...not too syrupy. Definitely a dessert beer. I'll easily finish the bottle but then agin I have a serious sweet tooth....You really should try it once.

If I had to describe Southern Tier's Creme Brulee in one word it would be, awkward. Definitely not to be consumed with a meal, it's far too sweet. I can easily smell its overpowering vanilla scent sitting several feet away from my glass. The flavor is slightly less objectionable. The taste is somewhat more subdued than the smell as it blends with the sharp chocolate/mocha flavors of the roasted malts in the stout. Medium bodied, a bit chewy (good things), but a bit too carbonated for this style I felt. Mouth feel would probably improve on nitro. Overall, not my 'mug of beer'. Southern Tier went for something insane but got something ludicrous instead. It's just a little over the top for my taste.
