22oz bottle at home.
Smells like desert. Wow. Butterscotch, vanilla.
Very rich, so splitting a bottle is just fine.

BOD 12/15/15. Pours black. Outstanding head volume and retention, world class lacing.
World class rich nose of vanilla, cream and light caramel. It screams crème brulee. Underneath is a light coconut aspect.
Medium body with a smooth texture that has creamy moments. Carbonation is world class with a perfect body / carbonation balance that really allows the complex flavors to open up. The middle has a burst of effervescence while the finish is pricky and finely bubbled.
The flavor profile is quite outstanding. Had the alcohol remained covered and suppressed the very slight astringency, it would be world class. It begins with a wave of vanilla that floats above cream then shifts to vanilla over caramel. The middle has a hint of roast oriented bitterness underneath. From the middle to the finish, chocolate and coconut notes emerge. The finish is a slow sweet fade of slightly sweet vanilla with a touch of alcohol flavor and astringency.

Artifical vanilla and caramel aroma. Big tan head. This really does not taste good for me. This tastes kind of sweet in a saccharine sort of way. Would not drink again.

Drank from a pint glass poured from a large bottle, split amongst clowns. Amazing aroma, a beautiful beer. After taste ain’t great.

Dark oily pour, thin cream head. Aroma is a strong sweet cream, maybe one of the more distinct initial notes I’ve seen. Flavor is a roasted marshmallow, with a sweet, creme brulee finish. Very unique, very good.

Draft at Moes in Lee, MA. Pours a shaded black with plum highlights. Caramel beige head with light spotty lacing. Aroma of vanilla desert, pleasant and appealing. Taste of more desert goodness, some mild bitter malt interaction, then more vanilla, cream, chocolate pudding. This is fantastic, sneaky abv proves me right.

Weird. Had 4 pack from Holmes. Cost 20 bucks. Smells like a really expensive dessert. It’s stout and bitter and tastes like creme brulee. It’s love hate right now. Overall too sweet for me. When I wasn’t beer I wasn’t beer. If I wanted creme brulee I’d order dessert at a restaurant. Don’t think it’s worth 5 a beer.

Pours black with a nice tan head. Aroma of vanilla, caramellized sugar and custard is muted until the drink warms, but very much reminiscent of true Creme brûlée. Taste is just like the nose: custard, vanilla bean, sugar, earthy malt. This one is delicious.
