Poured into a Bruery snifter.
A-pours inky black with a little bit of brown hues on top. One finger head that disappears quickly. Lots of alcohol legs
S-vanilla, caramel, sweet chocolate, milk, custard. Smells like a caramel macchiato.
T- intensely sweet! Very similar to the smells. Slight bit of bitterness but overwhelming amount of creamy sweet caramel and vanilla.
M- medium light carbonation. Creamy milk stout goodness.
O- very good dessert beer but too sweet for my taste. More on the lines of a mix drink than a beer. Very unique though

This is a unique beer. It's a sweet stout that smells and tastes like you're dining on an actual crème brulee. The aroma is overwhelming with vanilla and caramel. The taste follows the nose and the mouthfeel is silky smooth and slightly viscous with low carbonation. You can skip ordering dessert and just have some of this instead. I wouldn't drink this beer after mowing the lawn, but after a fine meal, it would perfectly hit the spot.
