My old neighbor shared a bottle of this with me whilst I'm in town for son's hockey tournament. It poured an opaque dark with tan head that isn't leaving any lace. The scent had roast and pecan pie. The taste had tart chocolate with slight raspberry hints and creme brule pr toffee finish. The mouthfeel is lighter in body with fizzy carbonation. Overall it's a decent beer.

A bomber bought at John's in IA City. Not as sweet as Southern Tier's creme brulee but it's in that neighborhood. Might have been a little cold but the caramel was pretty subtle. On the thick side but glad we tried it.

Pours a deep, dark, almost black brew with a brown, firm head. Smells of toasted barley, chocolate, almonds, and coffee. Tastes overwhelmingly of coffee, which drops its taste score down for me, but after the swallow it mellows out and you can taste all the complex flavors and characteristics intermingling amongst the brew. Finishes with a nice crisp, clean break, and leaves you wanting that next sip. This is an excellent double stout, and since it comes from a local brewery close to me, it makes it all the more enticing. Definitely recommended - give this one another go if you are in Galesburg, Illinois anytime soon!
