Poured into a snifter. Big thanks to glazeman for the opportunity to drink this. 3.5 A: Black color. One finger of creamy light brown head falls quickly and doesn’t really leave any lacing. 5.0 S: Holy shit this is amazing. Wonderful coffee aroma and in fact the best smelling coffee I’ve ever experienced in a beer (it’s probably Folger’s or something, haha). Lactose, vanilla, and caramel come in at a forceful tie for second with chocolate in third. Just enough roastiness to keep it all in check. Wonderful strong aroma. Excellent! 3.0 T: This sure is disappointing. I’m not sure how they got so much aroma packed into this with so little taste. The strongest taste by far is the sourish sweetness of lactose. The coffee is barely there, the chocolate and caramel are barely there, and the vanilla is absent. It really is rather bland. Fuck. 2.0 M: I was expecting a thick and sticky, but bubbly mouthfeel. Instead I got a thin, lifeless body. Horrible direction for a creme brulee type beer. 3.0 D: This beer had so much going for it until I took a sip. The only reason the drinkability isn’t lower is because stiffing the brew is a great experience. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 07-23-2010 01:56:55

UPDATED: DEC 24, 2010 Bottle. A tale of two beers. Visually stunning black with brown head. Nose nails creme brulee almost perfectly - toasted vanilla, cocoa powder, coffee and creme brulee. Taste is a bit of a disappointment. Weakish body. Taste is burnt caramel, roasted chocolate malts, cocoa butter and vanilla extract.

On tap at the Kuhnhenn Brew Pub. Poured a deep brown color with a smaller sized off white head. Tastes of vanilla, creme, vanilla, caramel, and chocolate. Tastes of vanilla, creme, coffee, chocolate, and roast. A nice sipper.

BelgianBeerGal (3138) - Panama City, Florida, USA - DEC 1, 2010
12oz December 2009 bottle. Pours a dark brown, almost black with a short tan head that dissolves quickly into a ring. Very pleasant aroma of sweet cream, semi-sweet chocolate, coffee, peanut butter and vanilla. Surprisingly thin mouthfeel. Disappointing flavor that is a little sour but also has some smoke too it. Bitterness from roasted coffee. Just missed for me.

2009 bottle. Smoky burnt coffee nose, little ashy with dark caramel in the background. Jet black, creamy caramel head. Wow. Sour. Pickles. Drainpour. Some coffee and caramel on the edges, but only distantly.

12 oz. bottle (3/2010). Pours almost black in color with a medium sized, lasting tan head. The aroma is by far the star of the show. Sweet vanilla, mocha, caramelized sugar, malty; it definitely lives up to the name. The flavor is coffee with vanilla added, espresso, mocha, caramelized sugar. Medium bodied and a bit thin. I liked this one fresh, but had the nose higher than the flavor.

Sammy (8566) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 2, 2010
Enjoyed on tap at the brewpub. A real coffee and sweet cream experience. Reddish brown body. Very creamy mouthfeel. Smells creamy coffee. Better than the Southern Tier version. Great even for a non-coffee drinker like me.

JoeMcPhee (8411) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 31, 2010
Tap at Kuhnhenn. Deep black pour with a tight brown head. The nose is intensely sweet with a fairly bright vanillaish component over the top. Intense coffee character along with some toasted toffee through the middle. Bright and sweet with quite a bit of sweet toffee/caramel complexity. Not a whole lot of roast - but there is something that is contributing to a real desserty chewy sweetness. Lingering cocoa.

bu11zeye (11940) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - OCT 29, 2010
(12oz bottle, June 2010 vintage) Pours an opaque black body with a small tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, vanilla, caramel, coffee, toffee, and chocolate. Flavor of sour milk, chocolate, and caramel. Unbalanced. Messy sourness.

thirdeye11 (5537) - Dallas, Texas, USA - OCT 24, 2010
(12oz bottle) ruddy dark brown pour, ring of deep tan bubbles. Nose of peanut butter, milk chocolate, coffee, espresso, vanilla, and sweet caramel. Some nut shells in here as well. Smells amazing! Unfortunately the beer is infected and you can tell big time once you taste it. Soured milk, chocolate, peanuts, and creamy. Too bad, this could have been epic.
