Dogfish head Higher Math. Just had this the other day, very sweet but enjoyable.
Creme bruele by ST is the sweetest beer ive eve had. All of those Blackwater ST beers are pretty sweet. Mokah is my favorite.
Evil Twin Imperial Biscotti Break is super sweet for an imperial stout, but also very delicious.
A more common really sweet beer, at least as a stout, is Left Hand Milk Stout.
If you're looking for something that doesn't have a hoppy or malty taste at all.. lambics are it, and about it, tho I've only tried a couple. Everything else is just a ploy I swear.. "Fruity this" "milky that".. The roasty stout or bitter pale ale or robust porter taste still overpowers in most cases. I'm still on the hunt for the perfect sweet beer.. Rubaeus from Founders is the closest I've found(newly a year-rounder).. But it's so goddamn malty that's it's hard to finish. Still have yet to try Creme Brulee.. Tho I'm dying too. NYF's RB is also on the list of too damn malty, and sweet for that matter.. It's like the sugar burns your tongue. Pumkin beers and malt bombs are probably your best bet.. But I'm not the biggest craft nerd sitting at the bar.
I would say any Milk Stout. Just had Stone's Xocovesa--definitely falls into the "dessert beer" realm. They are excellent, but so sweet I could only drink two in a sitting.
It's not a beer but it is made with malt and hop extract and I think it is called julmust. It is a sweedish soda made especially for Christmas. It's sweet and while there is not alcohol in it it is like beer because of the ingredients.
Lindemans Lambics, both Peche and Framboise
I wouldn't go for something overly sweet, just avoid bitter beer.
Try the following, these are the first beers that I liked:
Duchess de Bourgogne
Rodenbach Grand Cru
Good call, there's a lot of wheat beers out there which might appeal to the non-beer drinker, both Wibiers and Hefeweizen
Perennial Fantastic Voyage
Stiegl Radler- Reminds me of an alcoholic version of Fresca.
Brown shuggah sweet release.
Fat Head's Bumbleberry.
Just had a Mikkeller Beer Geek Vanilla shake last night - VERY sweet, tons of vanilla - I loved it, but it was tough to finish...
Lindemans Faro Lambic.
The posts about the Southern Tier stuff are correct IMO. However, while Choklat is a great beer, Creme Brûlée is just over the top on sweetness.
For me yes it was sweet. But I drink many IPAs...
A Deal with the Devil was incredibly sweet
Madtown Nutbrown from Ale Asylum is cloyingly sweet. Also Rochefort 8. I hate both beers
As do I, it's my favorite style. This is getting strange. Chalk it up to different palates.
Terrapin MooHoo really did taste like chocolate milk (and beer). Great with breakfast.
THAT'S IT PUT UP YOUR DUKES GOOD SIR
Seriously though, if you think Rochefort 8 is too sweet, all I can say is stay the fuck away from the 10...
i will second
new belgium frambozen if they are doing it this year
raspberry and chocolatey
not really my thing but pretty sweet
Nogne 0's Sweet Horizon is the sweetest beer I've ever had. No clue if that's still being made, though.
Aged versions of English Old Ales, like JW Lee's and Harvey's would be up there. Samichlaus, too.
Creme Brulee and most other Southern Tier beers = very sweet. The Bruery's BA strong beers, especially Cuivre, as well.
WTF I need this in my mouth now! I feel like I never see Smutty's BIG BEER series anymore!
Don't get me wrong I thought that beer well put together,I really do enjoy it. Certainly be more coconut flavor than any beer I've ever had!
i find it amusing when you refer to bells (and sweetwaters) imp stouts as black DIPAs. they both are definitely just like the reg ipas
Samuel Smith's Organic Chocolate Stout. Not super sweet, but it is the best shelf chocolate stout there is. In addition to drinking it just by itself, I've used it to make beer floats--I pour it over caramel custard (instead of vanilla ice cream), and put a dollop of homemade whipped cream on it with some chocolate shavings. When the custard starts to melt into the beer, it tastes very close to Bailey's Irish cream.
Just had this one ET The Perfect Nose a BW aged in Cognac Barrels super sweet and cloying.
New Glarus beers are overly sweet. Funky Buddha too.
Tiny from Weyerbacher is pretty sweet. A robust sweet stout.
Just tried Brownie from Horny Goat and it is a malt bomb as well as decently sessionable.
What part of the country do you hail from----availability is a question more easily made if we know the general area from which you hail.
Because hops are all the new folks know...
Ya see I am specifically looking for beers that are NOT hoppy, and less bitter, so thanks for the suggestions but let's remember what I am asking.
Mix creme brulé with founder's blushing monk
When I was about 20, travelling through Europe- Karlsruhe, just across the French border- I spotted a beautiful red pastry in the display case of an amazing bakery. I thought it was cherry or raspberry. When we sat down in the park to scarf our goods, I had a terrible surprise. That cherry pastry was rhubarb, not sweet and I felt betrayed. I'm sure that I would love it now.
Avery Reverend is like drinking Belgian candi syrup. Same with the sixth glass.
Someone mentioned Mikkeller Beer Geek Vanilla Shake. I would also add Mikkeller Beer Geek Dessert, Belching Beaver Peanut Butter Milk Stout, Belching Beaver Orchata Imperial Stout, and Firestone Walker Stickee Monkee.
I had a Maharaja a few years back that tasted like it was brewed with candied fruit. Didn't work for an IPA , IMO is was pretty shitty I drain poured it.
I had a friend who wasn't into craft but liked sweet drinks and wanted a beer recommendation. I suggested New Belgium Abbey and he loved it. Newcastle Brown Ale is also quite sweet, although that beer's not really to my liking.
