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.

Aroma - does not disappoint. Rich candied sugar, vanilla, and butterscotch.
Appearance - body is black. The head is beige 1/4". Alcohol cloying that carries lacing.
Taste - rich mix of roast, vanilla, cream, alcohol, and caramel ~ could be described as butterscotch.
Palate - full body, creamy texture, average carbonation, and slightly roast bitters.

Bottle at home with my wife. pour is deep brown, almost black, with a frothy tan head and great lacing. Aroma is packed with sugar - cake frosting, vanilla, caramel, butterscotch, light cocoa, and cake batter. Wow that is insanely sweet. Taste is big cake batter, vanilla, frosting, butterscotch, light coffee, cocoa, and marshmallows with an overly sweet finish. Medium body with medium carbonation. Way too sweet for my liking and 2 oz was more than enough.

Bottle. Pours black with a thin sticky head. Substantial cling. Aromas of vanilla and caramel. Flavors are vanilla, caramel, spice, roasty malt and dark chocolate. Well balanced hoppy bite. Noticeable booziness. Sticky to oily mouthfeel that coats the tongue. Very sweet and candy-like. Nice beer, but a little too much like desert.

Huge vanilla, caramel nose. Very sweet yet not syrupy or cloying. This is a liquid version of creme brûlée. Nicely balanced with earthy hops. Some lightly roasted coffee and white chocolate linger in the background. Delicious dessert stout!

Bomber. Pours black with thin brown head. Aroma is Vanilla, Custard, burnt sugar pretty much exactly like creme brûlée. Taste is thick and sweet like caramelized sugar, vanilla and marshmallow / eggy custard. Finish is a little bitter but assume it will settle down as it warms up. I like it.
