4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
I got a 22oz bottle of this from Badger Spirits in Janesville, WI in fall 2012.
It pours a very dark brown with a slight light brown head. The scent is a rich, sweet stout with a fantastic vanilla aroma. The taste is rich, complex, and delicious. Initially you get the bold taste of the robust malts but then a finish that is sweet from caramel malts and vanilla. Has a strong vanilla linger after taste. This is something you have to try for yourself, no words can describe the unique flavor of this brew.

I could not hardly drink this straight, as it is so increadibly sweet. I added a dollop of vanilla ice cream and it became one of the best floats I ever tasted. The Southern Tier Creme Brulee float should be on dessert menu of every beer snob restaurant.
Overwhelmingly loud vanilla aroma. Pours thick black and creates lasting thick buoyant light brown head.

Got this on tap and I could smell the Crème Brulee as soon as the server set down. Great tasting beer that does like Crème Brulee. I should of had it for dessert instead of with my meal. Very good beer!

On draft at Clubhouse BFD. Dark brown with a faint head. Aroma is like a birthday cake. The aroma fills the air from a few feet away. Pure creme brulee as advertised. So strong it almost blocks out any other aroma. Taste is smooth and sweet with a sweet sugary taste that lingers. Palate is sugar, molasses and cream. Followed by more creme. Not the most tantalizing thing I’ve ever had on my palate but definitely tasty.

Aroma - Wow chocolate, some coffee, some nuts. Pours black with minimal head. The taste is sweet. The body/palate is medium, the texture creamy, the carbonation average and the finish long. This hits the nail on the head - Very good

This beer definitely lives up to its name. I nearly overdosed on vanilla. Not my thing but i can appreciate that it was well done.

Bomber baby! Bought from Mo’s Bottle Shop(RIP). It pours out black with a nice creamy head. You know this stuff is going to be sweet right away form the aroma. Huge caramel and vanilla smells. I mean freaking huge caramel smells! This smells like dessert in a glass. The taste is very sweet upfront. Caramel and vanilla blend together with the first sip to give you a nice custard flavor. But for a very sweet beer the aftertaste is kinda bitter. The taste falls off fast. I look for a more lingering mouthfeel with a stout and IMO this doesn’t deliver. Overall a very tasty beer, but not something that I would drink very often. Unless I want my dang teeth to rot out.

bottle. Black with half finger head. Thick and dense, somewhat oily mouthfeel. Huge over-the-top vanilla. I love vanilla, but this is pushing it. It reminds me a bit of the time I tried vanilla extract -- there’s so much vanilla it seems bitter.

Delicious vanilla aroma truly captures the smell of creme brulee. Definitely smells like a dessert.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours from bomber a lovely, thick black goodness. Aroma immediate of vanilla and chocolate. Taste of much the same. Truly creamy, but not overly sweet. Very satisfying stout.

What to say that hasn’t been said already - this is a big kids treat. Delicious, sweet, and smells heavenly. The 22oz had a fairly high price tag but it was oh so worth it.
This is definitely a sipper - savor the flavor because the alcohol is so well hidden you’ll think you got duped.
