22 ouncer, pours pretty much black, under a mocha frothy head, that leaves tons of fine sheeting. Nose is loaded w/vanilla and sweet/sugary milk shake notes. Yummy, smooth, easy drinking and most undeniably SWEET. Vanilla, honey, more vanilla, toasted sugar, candi sugar, sweet sweet coffee. Very smooth and creamy mouthfeel. Pleasant desert stout, I'd like to try it with a chocolaty concoction.

22 ounce bottle, 2011 release poured into multiple tulip glasses.

A: Deep dark brown, borderline black body with a bubbly light beige head. Nice retention cap helped leave behind some sticky lace on the walls. An Imperial Milk Stout? Yeah, this pretty much looks dead on for what it is.

S: Sweet vanilla, caramel, toasted sugar, custard, chocolate morsels and touches of cinnamon. It's a phenomenal and decadent smelling beer. Really, nothing of a beer at all. Take the dessert and put it into liquid form. Rich, robust and intoxicating this, although sweet smelling, is just what it's billed to be.

T: More sweet and sugary flavors, vanilla, caramel, chocolate, custard pie and caramelized sugar. It's very sweet, very cloying but still tastes great. After a while this does become to be too much, but splitting the bottle and sipping this one over the course of the evening remedies this. I mean honestly, if you want creme brulee in a glass, this is it.

M: Bubbly, creamy though fairly active on the carbonation. It's easily medium-bodied but the milkiness texture of it keeps it from being a full-bodied, robust stout. Not bad at all though, very enjoyable.

The fact of the matter is, this beer is exactly what it was intended to be. Yes, it's sweet and yes, it's extremely overboard in flavor. But that's what makes this beer so accurate to being creme brulee in beer form. If that's not what you want, don't look here. For what it is, this is just wonderful.

A - Coca-Cola black. Almost no head to speak of.

S - Whoa, this could pass for a shot of insulin in a pinch. Butter scotch - HUGE butter scotch - and white chocolate.

T - A liquefied dessert. White chocolate chip cookies, heavy cream, vanilla pudding, latte. Extra dark maple syrup in the finish.

M - Syrupy sweet and super smooth. Marbled pound cake flavors through the finish. Almost no alcohol at all on your palate.

O - Sooo sweet. Definitely needs something to counter balance the profile like a big blue cheese, pretzels, salted nuts, or a spicy Asian snack mix.

05/15/09- Purchased at Chucks Wines in Chargin Falls, OH.

Presentation- 22oz bottle with no freshness info. Poured into an oversized wine glass.

Appearance- Brown colored pour. About a 1/2 inch head which turns into small bubbles. Leaves some light spotting of lace behind.

Smell- Smells dead on like a mix of creme brulee and kalhua. Very nice and potent scent.

Taste- Extremely rich and almost sickeningly sweet. I then looked at the label and it said to drink at 42 degrees rather than 55+. So, I put it back in the fridge for 30 minutes and drank the rest. A bit better but quite sweet still. The malt comes through a bit more with a roasted flavor.

Mouthfeel- A bit overcarbonated. I would think this would be much better on a hand pump possibly. Lots of caramel and vanilla aftertaste.

Drinkability- Not really my cup of tea. I would have downgraded, but I know it's because I just don't really care for creme brulee and the sweetness this beer imparted. I know it probably is a well crafted beer though.

Poured in to brandy snifter.

A - Dark brown with a very small amount of espresso coloured head.

S - Very sweet. Vanilla, molasses, some chocolate and brown sugar.

T - Extremely sweet, as the nose indicated. Vanilla and caramel dominate the palate. Some very light chocolate notes come through in the background.

M - Medium body; lightly carbonated.

D - Sweetness makes it somewhat difficult to drink more than just a few ounces. Given that this one comes in a bomber, I definitely have to share this one.

Poured a very dark brown almost black with a half finger of tan head that left a little sticky lacing on the glass. The nose was really sweet smelling already but was quite nice which consisited of vanilla. Caramel, burnt sugar. And slight honey notes. It really does have a creme brulee aroma; very unique. The taste basically mirrored the nost but the beer was really rich in flavor with caramel, burnt sugar, and vanilla domniating the palate. There was also faint underlying roasted coffee notes as well. The brew was medium body with a fair amount of carbonation that had a really sweet and rich finish. The beer is absolutely tasty but is pretty hard to drink considering the overwhelming richness and sweetness, its definitely a dessert beer for sure. I would love to have plenty of these in stock for after dinners.

Picked up a bomber at Abe's and shared it with some friends on a Friday afternoon. The general first taste response was something along the lines of, "holy sh-t!"

It smells pretty spot on like vanilla custard and creme brulee. Damn. There's a slight bite to this beer that hints at the 10% strength and the flavor pales a bit compared to the deep and rich aroma. Still, more custard comes out on the palate with a mocha edge. The flavors here so vividly recall cream and vanilla desserts that it's easy to forget this is a stout. The balanced body and relatively thin (for a 10% stout) body also make this as drinkable as any sessionable stout.

This beer is, simply put, nuts. It's a great example of extreme beer and American brewers pushing the boundaries of what beer can beer. Bravo Southern Tier.

The beer pours a deep dark black color with a 1/2" brown head that fades to lacing. The aroma is awesome. It has a kick ass caramel and vanilla scent. It smells like a fine after dinner snack. What a treat! The taste is good. It has a strong black and chocolate malt base along with lactose for sweetness and a very nice vanilla bean finish. This beer is outstanding; a real easy drinker. It's sweet, but I like it. The flavor is right on with the name. The mouthfeel is fine. It is a full bodied beer with adequate carbonation. I can't say enough about this beer. Southern Tier has become a premiere brewering powerhouse. Everything they brew is top notch. A road trip is in the works.

Pours a dark black color. One inch head of a tan color. Good retention and good lacing. Smells of sweet toffee, sweet malt, slight hops, and slight roasted malt. Fits the style of an American Double / Imperial Stout. Mouth feel is smooth and slightly thick with a low carbonation level. Tastes of sweet malt, strong alcohol, slight roasted malt, hint of coffee, hint of hops, and a resounding sweetness throughout. Overall, a very strong brew that I'm glad I did not try before my other two beers tonight. Wow, incredible flavor, body, and drinkability.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3

Appearance: black in color with a 2" head that lingers around a while.

Smell: loads of vanilla, roasted malts, and some coffee aroma are most notable.

Taste: big malt profile with loads of vanilla, dark bitter chocolates, brown sugar, and espresso. Bitterness helps cut into the big sweetness here.

Mouthfeel: heavier in body. Smooth from start to finish. Aftertaste is very long as the flavors stick to your tongue.

Drinkability: after completing the bomber bottle, I kind of lost interest in having any more. This is a one or two glass beer at best.

Bottle courtesy thirdeye11.

Pours black with a tan head. The aroma is strong butterscotch with a lot of sweetness and some vanilla. Definitely a different aroma. The flavor is butterscotch, praline and vanilla. Medium mouthfeel, low carbonation and very drinkable, but I can't see myself drinking more than six ounces at a time since it is so sweet. This beer would serve as a great stand alone dessert.

Yes, this is one of the more famous "love or hate" beers that one can find. The opportunity showed itself and I was there. On to the beer:

Dark as expected, but it does have some red colored hues. The lacing that it gives off is decent. The nose is a wallop of caramel and a shot of coffee. One thing is easy to decide, I love it!

Upon tasting it, I wasn't sure how sweet the taste would be despite already smelling it. It is sweet, but not SWEET! This is about as sweet as one could go without being cloying. Fully loaded with caramel and a shot of espresso and roast that lingers in the background. The alcohol hides itself well. It's medium heavy, and surprisingly it is easy enough to drink.

I'm a fan of Southern Tier Crème Brûlée, and proud to admit it. Don't like it because you think it's too sweet? Good. More for the rest of us. Afraid to buy a bomber in fear that it may give you diabeetus? Good. More for the rest of us.

22oz bottle from the LCBO, part of the Winter release. Into two stemmed wine snifters, shared with the girlfriend.

Pours black, with a finger or two of khaki head, Mild retention, sticky lace. Nose is huge, loads of graham cracker, burnt sugar, pie crust/pastry crust and vanilla, with some alcohol hanging out in the back. Taste is fairly complex, lots of stuff thrown together here. Caramel, sweet creme brulee, dark chocolate, burnt brown sugar and vanilla all find their way in there, with some alcohol on the back end. Great mouthfeel, thick and real chewy. Drinkability takes a hit, this is super sweet and a real dessert beer. Half a bomber was more than enough, almost too much for me. Interesting stuff, and really gives the impression of some creme brulee.

Poured into a Gulden Draak tulip. Pours a very dark brown, appearing black. One finger fine medium brown head with good retention and lacing. Delicious crème brulee aroma wafts out of the bottle as this is poured. Dark, sweet malt, brown sugar, vanilla aroma, smells delicious. Very sweet, butterscotch, brown sugar, sweet malt and a hint of coffee with a very light hop kick at the end. Very creamy and full bodied. This is a bit sweet, but absolutely delicious.

22oz bottle poured into small glass. Shared with family and friends over the weekend. The label shows some cows grazing on a farm.

A- As expected Creme Brulee comes out a dark brown to black color. While in the glass this stout is as black as anything else in the Blackwater series. A 1/2 finger loose head creeps up and actually has some staying power before it vanishes. Moderate lacing.

S- OMG this is one sweet smelling brew and quite over powering with you guessed it creme brulee and vanilla beans with some butterscotch. The malts are present and welcomed by me. I smelled more of a hop presence in a fresh bottle but those hops are former shells of themselves now.

T- Guess what? This tastes like creme brulee so this is ST offering is not false advertisement. If you expect something else, well, i don't know what to do for you. This also tastes like peeling off the top creamy layer of a dozen plus butterscotch tasty cakes and stuffing them in your mouth. I'm sure there is a generous amount of hops and malts in this but they are not helping center this brew. There is an additional sweetness to creme brulee with distinct burnt sugar extract.

M- A pretty medium mouth feel that feels thicker then it is with the over abundance of sweetness coming from all angles. The sweet creme brulee taste lingers around forever, too long perhaps.

D- There is no way i could ever finish a bottle of this even 1/2. The most i can take at a time at most is a 5% and prefer less at a sitting. I have extra bottles of this so i love taking it to parties and watching unsuspecting people cringe drinking it even though i warn em before. I love desert beers but this one is way to much.

I love southern tier brewing and all the offerings i've had from them, but i don't see myself buying this again, unless a hot chick that loves sweets is looking for a brew.

Thanks goes out to jwc215 for this brew.

Pours a thick black color, some carbonation, nice little fizzy tan head, some sticky lacing around the edges. The nose is a vanilla bean BOMB, very nice, malty, some hops, chocolate/toffee/coffee notes. The taste is sweet, malty, very nice touch of vanilla, with the big three dark ones. Medium body. Very drinkable, I really like this one, different brew from other Imp. Stout's, way to go ST.

I poured this into a tall pint glass. It poured a midnight black and has a light khaki head. It smelled of vanilla, a deep roasted malt, toffee, and butterscotch. The flavor was very, very sweet and had accents of vanilla and was overall very much like butterscotch, which continued into the after taste. It wasn't the heaviest of stouts and was medium bodied as far as stouts go. I split this 650ml bottle with a friend and even then it was a little much. It is too sweet and drinking one of these would be pretty hard to do. It's very much like toffee and butterscotch and I'm not a huge fan of those flavors, but it does taste good. It's a little difficult to gauge due to the sweetness but it is pretty good.

A massive wall of vanilla cream hits my nose just after I vigorously pour this beer; smells more like desert than just about anything, it is actually more concentrated than an actual crème brûlèe. The head form an initially three-finger thick, frothy, lightly browned, tan colored head in my 25cl tulip glass. The vanilla is just so overwhelming and loud, you really can't smell much else; luckily the vanilla note itself is not overly one dimensional, it is full enough that I am sure the brewer used actual vanilla beans (and a ton of them at that). If you like sweet and vanilla then this aroma is good, luckily I was ready for desert so this beer is fulfilling that urge so far. After warming up a bit the aroma takes on a touch of nuttiness and a butterscotch note becomes a bit more prominent.

Thick and rich up front with enough of a viscous body to make this a sipping brew; to be honest though it is not quite as rich and full as the aroma led me to believe. The vanilla notes are definitely far and away the dominant note here in the flavor as well, but some other flavors manage to assert themselves just enough to be noticeable. This finishes with a touch of hot alcohol, that in combination with the vanilla makes me think of Bourbon. Sweet, in fact incredibly sweet, though again not quite as much as the aroma might have suggested. The vanilla flavors contribute or bring out notes of butterscotch, Bourbon, . Not overly roasted, but some roast malt flavors seem to add a touch to the finish with a bit of bitterness. As this beer warms there is a slight nuttiness to the flavor that is a bit like browned butter and the flavors definitely lean towards burnt as the beer rolls across the palate.

I knew this beer was going to be a sweet, sticky, incredibly vanilla laden beer coming into this. For that reason I waited until I was really wanting dessert to have it. The aroma definitely satisfied any dessert fix that I might have wanted, but "strangely" I find the flavors not quite rich enough as this could use more roast malt flavors and a thicker, more complex malt base. That strangely in that last sentence is important, because if I was not ready for the overbearing vanilla and sweetness here I likely would have found this beer a sickly sweet, train wreck of an Imperial Stout; properly forewarned & with the right occasion, this beer, while overly simplistic, is not quite half bad and is even enjoyable if had in small doses.

A. Poured into a snifter. Nice inch of light brown head, that became a fine lace.

S. Vanilla cream in the nose. Its Creme Brulee afterall.

T. Follows the nose in a very sweet vanilla chocolate stout. A robust roasted malt feature is complimentary to the lovely sweet lactose.

M. Creamy and smooth. Milky. Great.

D. Very drinkable, though tends to ruin the palate to other beers. Good night cap, change of pace beer.

22 oz. bottle, served at approximately 55 degrees,

A: Pours a very dark brown when held up to the light. Into a snifter it went, with a long-lasting off-white/light tan head and a smattering of lacing.

S: This is the best part. Upon opening the bottle, I was greeted with this heavenly decadent butterscotch aroma, like smelling the most delicious dessert in the world. A beautiful smell, in the top 3 best smells in a beer ever along with another Southern Tier product - Choklat, and a vintage Bell's Old Ale.

T: Taste is delicious and decadent as well. Espresso coffee with cream comes out first, a little more bitter than I expected from the roasted grains, but it was quite tasty nonetheless. Molasses and vanilla are lighter than they were in the nose, but they still offer up outstanding secondary flavours, I would have liked a little more vanilla, as I'm a huge fan of the flavour, but this was quite nice, it's more balanced with all the flavours this way than if I had my way. The flavour profile ends with a distinct hop bite, which shocked me a little going in, as I expected it to be all malt, vanilla and spice flavours. I was taken aback at first, but as the brew continued to disappear from my glass and as it warmed up, I found the grassy hop notes melded really well with the coffee flavours. The ultimate dessert in a glass beer, I'm not giving it a 5, although it's close, I still would have liked a little less hop character, but this is still outstanding.

M: The carbonation is very soft, the brew is rather light-bodied for a big stout which I liked because the mouthfeel does not weigh the beer down, it's quite drinkable in it's style, which would make it a great dessert pairing.

D: I had this beer by itself, and I loved it, but it begs to be paired with an after dinner dessert. Wow, Southern Tier makes good beer. I envy all you East Coasters for having easy access to this stuff. In the top 5 of new beers I've had this year for sure. This is a sipper to sit back and enjoy, I would love to get another bottle of this.

Raven black with just the faintest, thinnest smear of rustic red if you hold it right up to the light and really squint hard enough. Although essentially opaque, at the proper angle you can see that same tone wash up along the light ebony banks which comprise the bold contour that silhouettes this shadowy beverage.

If you weren't aware that vanilla beans were used in the beer, you definitely will be the moment those first few drops hit the glass; this recipe must have depleted half the world's supply! As a fan of vanilla, this smell to my nose is downright ambrosial. Besides, it also features cocoa and a tremendous amount of caramel as well. It's like breathing in the air of a cafe scented with a long range of gourmet flavoured coffees.

Love it or hate it, I don't want to hear anyone denying the depth of this flavour profile - its intensity is the very reason why people either love or hate this beer. I'll attempt to describe what it is I'm tasting, but no words I know of will describe just how delicious and delectable and delightful they truly are. Just imagine the decadence of something that tastes like:

A fresh vanilla bean late with melted cocoa nibs and sweet sugary icing; and a finely roasted gourmet white chocolate flavoured coffee; and a very vanilla-laden bourbon infused with lots and lots of dark, buttery caramel; and more simply: a big 10% stout with a malt base that, instead of biscuit, tastes like a nutty nougat custard filled crepe topped with browned sugar.

But for all this flavour there seems to be proportionately little texture. The roast especially, which is present in taste, is very minimal in mouthfeel. Also, I understand the sweetness is meant to be exaggerated, but I'm surprised with the near complete void of bitterness. It certainly doesn't feel as rich as it tastes.

With no alcohol or astringency present, a beer which possesses this flavour and this strength and yet still so much drinkability could peek your sense of indulgence to guilty levels. Granted, that's if you're into this kind of thing. It does seem odd commending a beer for tasting so much like something that is not beer - I do feel like I'm raving on about a dessert.

And perhaps this is better considered a dessert anyhow; treated as a beer it is likely to be too rich and too sweet for many. But to anyone who - like me - have the weakness of possessing a sweet-tooth, an uncompromising appetite for dessert and just so happen to also have an appreciation for masterful craftsmanship brewing... this is a heavenly thing.

Poured a deep brown hue with a one finger thick and creamy tan head. There was good retention and lacing.

The smell featured a mix of vanilla, cocoa, caramel and the slightest burnt grain.

The taste was a mix of the aforementioned elements with a slighly stonger burnt grain. But honestly, I don't really don't have any use for a beer like this. As a dessert, there are already several liquors that can be added to coffee to achieve the same effect.

The mouthfeel was full and sweet.

Overall an interesting experiment, but a beer in nmae only. Personally, I think beers like this give craft beer a bad name. For non-craft drinkers, beers like this potentially pigeon hole all craft beer as gimmicky and undrinkable.

Thanks to BeerisHeaven for this one.

Dark brown in color pour a finger/finger and a half head, no real lacing left behind by the beer.

This is hands down the best part of this beer. I smell caramel mostly. Along with milk and vanilla. It does smell a bit like creme brulee. A bit of chocolate and coffee on the end.

Like a creme brulee. A first taste of caramel followed by milkiness and vanilla. Ends in a slight chocolate and caramel flavor.

It is sweet,sweet, and more sweet. Creaminess to it and little carbonation.

This would have been great if i had only like 6 oz. total. 22 oz. was way way to much for me. I could enjoy this beer but only in slight moderation. This would be a great desert beer in small doses. Southern Tier is a company that is just so over the top that they make great beer, that taste pretty much like they say it does.

Poured from 22oz bomber into a pint glass.

Appearance: entirely black with some dark brown highlights around the edges. Head is a thick finger of frothy dark tan foam with decent retention. Quite beautiful.

Appearance: butterscotch pudding with a little bit of coffee poured in. Hints of vanilla, toffee, and whatever else goes in butterscotch pudding. I feel wrong for liking it.

Taste: butterscotch pudding with a little bit of chocolate and coffee. Too sweet and dessert-ey to really be considered beer. Again, I feel wrong for liking it.

Mouthfeel: medium body with a good carbonation and creaminess. Good.

Overall: I can see this beer as not being for everybody. It is enormously sweet and absolutely crazy. Perhaps that is why I like it.
