The first time I had this deliciousness was out of the tap back in 2010. The fragrant aroma poured from the glass as three of us just stood over the pint drooling in disbelief. Over the years the Creme Brulee has some times shown to be a bit artifical and chalky tasting. The mouthfeel has also varied from delightfully medium to syrupy heavy. I dont think nothing will ever compare to that first meeting.. but all in all its a delighful beer.

Serving type: on-tap

look: 4 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

22oz bottle poured into a tulip.

Appearance: Pours a super-dark brown, almost pitch-black. Very slight head disappears rapidly. No bubbles to speak of.

Smell: The smell alone is its namesake in a bottle. This smells just like I was sniffing creme brulee. The burnt sugar? Check. The vanilla sweetness? Check. That delicate hint of cream? Oh yes. This is a 5 on the smell factor.

Taste: Definitely has the stout base of note, but man does the creme brulee taste come through here as well. The coffee, chocolate notes of the base blend so well with the burnt sugar and the vanilla. While not quite the perfection that the nose brings to the table, this is really good. I would definitely consider this a dessert stout, but it's not so sweet that it makes you sick. Very nice. A slight bit of booziness kicks in as you drink through this.

Mouthfeel: Kind of a boozy aftertaste with a little bit of stickiness. Pretty much standard fare for this genre of beer at this ABV.

Overall: Definitely a nice once-in-awhile dessert treat. Not something to be had every day, but like with a delicious, rich, sweet dessert, something to savor every now and then.
