2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottled at Örebro Öl- och Whiskeyfestival. Dark brown, small head. Strong aroma of coffee, vanilla and, well... creme brulee... The flavour is exactly that as well - burnt sugar, traecle, coffee, vanilla and caramel. Not bad in itself, just extremely superficial and one dimensional. A good beer for people that don’t like beer. Pseudo-craft beer.

If you could turn a great Creme Brulee into a liquid, this would be the outcome. A bit much and over the top with flavor, but thats what I love. Not sure If I could drink a whole one myself. This was dark black and had a very strong vanilla and butterscotch. The taste had very little stout characteristics, almost pure butterscotch. The nose was intense.

Draft at the Dilly Deli. Wow, what an amazingly overwelming beer. Pours a jet black with no head to speak of. The huge aroma is vanilla and caramel, and the flavors are an explosion of vanilla, caramel, toffee and chocolate. Incredibly flavorful, incredibly sweet, this beer is best when handled in small amounts. I could never drink a full pint of this sweet beer.

This is an amazing beer. It’s aroma is what is most alluring. Its not overly sweet, and can get a little bitter with it’s aftertaste. It’s a must try!

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a clear ebony brown some ruby highlights. Smallish tan cap. Soft carbonation.
Aroma is dominated by a vanilla-cream-cocoa tones, light caramel sweetness.
Medium body, rich oily mouth feel. Big chew of toffee-roasty malts spiked with vanilla in the front, mid palate the cocoa and lactose(cream) tastes join the vanilla in creating a chocolate-custard character, then this dissolves away in the long finish which turns bitter and roasty with slight drying.
Great blend of flavors in a strong stout without cloying....intensely flavourful, satisfying and warming....a definite must try Après à manger beer.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
This beer pours dark brown with an opaque body and average sized, creamy, light brown head which quickly dissipated. It has a powerful sweet caramel aroma with hints of coffee and vanilla. A livelier, carbonation than expected on first taste that thickens at the finish. A heavy sweetness up front with strong caramel and alcohol flavors; a slight burnt and bitter finish. I think this beer hits the flavors it attempts to, but I would prefer a smoother, less sweet version.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Unique is an undertstatement.
Sweet aroma - heavily loaded with caramel, and a wild sweet, custard flavour that stops just short of becoming cloying.
Keeping all of this sweetness in line is a subtly alcohol presence that reveals itself after drinking.
Impossible to drink quickly, it could be the best after dinner beer ever brewed.

Bomber. Horrible... Taste and smells just like Creme Brulee but thats not what i want in a beer.... Smells nutty and fake, not like a brew. Flavor is also artificial, syrupy, and sugary. They got just what i think they were going for but what they were going for was stupid. BAd beer; way too sweet.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Dilly Deli. Pours an opaque dark brown color with a small tan head. Strong aroma of vanilla, caramel, chocolate, alcohol, cream, roast- definitely can picture the burnt cream and custard when smelling this. The flavor is strong vanilla and caramel-chocolate liqueur, without much else. Medium bodied, with a syrupy texture and mouthfeel. Cloying- would be nicer if it were more subtle, but this one pounds you with an alcoholic creme brulee flavor. Lingering aftertaste.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Nearly black with no head. Aroma is very powerful, with lots of sweetness, specifically caramel and vanilla. Taste is similar with some coffee as well as alcohol. Some carbonation, overall a nice mouthfeel. A great imperial stout for those who enjoy sweet brews.
