    A two year old Cigar City Warmer Winter Winter Warmer (2009 or 2010). I actually had a bit of a hard time finishing it, but I did. I've never drain poured a beer, but this was definitely cloying.

    A tie between Creme Brulee and Imperial Biscotti Break. The latter at least tasted good. The former was tough to get down.

    Créme Brûlée Stout x Southern Tier. But I still loved it.

    ST Creme Brulee... and I LOVE IT! Fantastic over ice cream, or right out of the bottle. Not everyday mind you, but it's perfect when you need a sugar/vanilla fix!

    Creme Brulee!
    And EVERYTHING from Southern Tier is sexual. Especially Mokah!

    Other than Lindeman's, Southern Tier Creme Brulee. It may have been infected and I didnt' feel right in the gut for 3 damn days. Never again.

    Southern Tier Choklat. I loved it, grab a couple bottles whenever I see it around. It's like drinking a chocolate bar. I have a major sweet tooth, so YMMV.

    The sweetest beer I've ever had was probably Lindemans Cassis, but it worked well and made sense. The only two beers I can remember being sweet in a bad way were DFH WWS and, sorry, Duchesse De Bourgogne.

    southern tier choklat is awesome. It literally is like chocolate milk. That being said, I didn't think it was super sweet... I will admit, that BC beers are often quite sweet... but not unbearingly so.

    Now to my memory lapse: I distinctly recall drinking a hideously syrupy stout last year... and for the life of me, I can't remember what it was! ARGH. I'll post back if I recall what that swill was.

    Southern Tier Creme Brulee. I really liked it, but definitely have to be in the mood for dessert when you drink it.

    I'm not sure if "sweet" would be the best word to describe it, but Temptation was the tartest, most lip-puckering some of a bitch I have had.

    I thought that Dark Horse's Monster 29 (non-BBA version because I have not had it) was cloyingly sweet after it warmed up. I had trouble finishing it.

    I'll agree with the ST Creme Brulee for the easy-to-find selection.

    2012 Dark Lord and a beer that I think was called Sweet Horizon.

    JW Lees for sure. Can barely even drink it, it's like straight syrup. Creme brulee was sweet but didn't bother me. A lot of the big He'brew beers are cloyingly sweet too.

    Dope

    Wow, didn't realize that there would be so many commenting on Creme Brulee, but I have to agree. I liked it.....but only now and again.
    Also, I was at a pumpkin tasting with only a few beers, and Pumking was sickeningly sweet in comparison. So much so that I was really put off by it. I want to like it, and need to try it again....but up against other pumpkins, it was over the top.

    Probably the five sweetest beers I've ever had.

    Hoppin' Frog Naked Evil, JW Lees Harvest Ale, Cigar City Warmer Winter Winter Warmer all come to mind as being SWEET...

    and I loved every damn drop of those beers.
