Pours black with little head.

Smell is sickeningly sweet, toffee, caramel, coffee, brown sugar, sticky.

Taste is hot, sweet, sticky, toffee, grainy, herbs, nothing bitter at all.

Sweet desert beer, like an Irish Car Bomb but in a beer, great. Hard to finish a whole bottle to yourself though.

"Ice cream, we're gonna get ice cream." -Bill Cosby

That's what I'm thinking. I need ice cream. But also, as I already had a very tall glass, it does capture the taste of creme brulee. Maybe a bitter one, with less sugar. But it works.

The look is stout, but the aroma is dessert. What's for dessert, crème brulee. The taste is a nice bitter stout dominated by the crème brulee taste. But underneath it is a serious stout and a bitter one.

The heavy flavor masks alcohol big time, but it does not try to completely obscure it.

I like it a lot on tap. I would bet that it is also good in a bomber.

PS 2017 12 oz bottles are great. OK over ice cream (not as good as hoped).
