A - Not too much head. Very black in color. Head fades quickly too.

S - WHOA! Very sugary. Lots of big coffee. Huge vanilla too.

T - Dessert in a glass. Yum! Lots of sugar, but not a bomb. Big coffee and lots of caramel. Tastes like caramel corn.

M - Love. Perfect carbonation. No heat. lots of flavor and dry.

O - Weirdly delicious! A fantastically unique brew! Glad I tired this one!

Had on tap at Cervezas in Miami. Review from notes.

Poured a deep brown with 1.5 fingers of light tan head. Quickly dissipated into a thin ring around the edges.

The aroma from this beer is amazing! It smells just like fresh baked creme brulee... even down to the carmalized sugar. It's almost unbelievable how great this aroma is.

The taste follows the nose and is a little over the top sweet... but I dont really think I can dock it for that considering it tastes exactly like creme brulee. Pretty boozy on the back end... but I'm not complaining.

Medium bodied with copious amounts of carbonation... Maybe a tad too much. Carmalized brown sugar aftertaste coasts the mouth.

Overall, I don't think that anyone could do a better job at pulling of a stout with the name Creme Brulee. I thought this beer was exceptional and really well done. A perfect dessert beer in my opinion.

I will note that I did not review this beer to style... I reviewed it based on the fact that it is named "Creme Brulee" and judged it based on how well it held up to its name.
