Pours black with a quarter inch off white head that left little lacing. Smells of vanilla, sweet cream, light coffee and some roasted malts. Taste is way too artificially sweet. Flavors of vanilla, sweet cream, cocoa, coffee and lightly roasted malts. Light to medium bodied, I expected a much fuller body, light carbonation, lingering sweetness on the finish. Overall a disappointment.

Bought this as a southern tier fan and love crime brûlée. Decided to have with dessert as a good pairing, my wife who usually doesn’t try my beers took a sip and helped me finish the 750ml bottle. When we went back she bought the last worth a good try. Sweet but good as an occasional beer.

DATE: February 17, 2018... OCCASION: a long, strange, happy day that began with the end of Will's eleventh birthday sleepover, an intense snow storm, and a nice dinner with friends for a good cause... GLASSWARE: Duvel tulip... alright, another Blackwater offering! pours its ominous pitch-black body and a resilient, thick, off-white three-fingered head that laces with a ring of clustered bubbles... first whiff evokes eggnog, shortbread cookie, vanilla bean, lactic aromas, and the suggestion of light coffee bean... sips at a medium-bodied mouthfeel, textured and slightly warming... a long, lingering finish tells its 10% ABV--though flat at the middle--and bolstering in its presence... big vanilla and smooth milk make this an eggnog kind of dessertif, worthy of small, chewed sips... the malts are toasted enough to suggest the flame that accompanies the creme brulee itself, while supplying a thickening measure... sweet but not off-putting, tempered in its approach, with its late life suggesting cinnamon and cardamon... the coffee liquor reminds me of the coffee brandy I tried to impress my college roommates by drinking... butterscotch is the lingering memory--a smell that haunts my turning-twenty-one self to this day, but is welcome in the profile of this beer... this is probably my least favorite Blackwater offering--not a slam--as it weds flavors that I am not personally inclined to... still, quite a profile for an ABV this stiff, and fresh from the grunt... solid, not spectacular, but at nine and change for 32 oz., more than worth the money...

Aroma. Sweet vanilla, very warm.
Appearance: thick looking, syrupy motor oil black with a small off white head.
Taste: syrupy sweet. Ashy aftertaste. Vanilla and toasted malt are evident, but sweetness tastes artificial/added, unfortunately similar to the Choklat in that way.
Thick feel.

Not awful by a long stretch, but very low on my list of stouts from quality sources.
