Great dessert stout. Incredible aroma of vanilla and caramel. Taste follows the aroma with very subtle roasty elements. Smells more strongly of creme brulee than it tastes. Very tasty but wouldn’t want more than one in a sitting.

From bottle. Pours an almost pitch black with a small tan head. Aroma has baileys, dooley’s, dumle, vanilla, candy, cream caramel, toffee, cacao milk, light roast. Taste is sweet, candy... All candy! And then a pretty roasty finish. Average carbonation and a medium full body.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours dark black with light white head. Aroma of burnt Carmel and vanilla. Taste is a touch bitter, mostly from a really burnt carmel flavor. Very malty with strong vanilla carmel flavors. Aftertaste has a lot of burnt carmel to it. Don't like the bitterness. If the bitterness was gone, it would be smoother and better allowing more flavor to come through.

Samples at 05-15-16 Public Day. Pours a dark brown with small foamy off-white head. Aromas of vanilla, toffee, burnt sugars, lactose, caramel. Flavor followed the nose pretty well, but it was overly sweet. Full body, thinner texture, average carbonation, very sweet finish. It’s solid for the style and what it’s meant to be, a dessert beer. If you love sweet and big flavored stouts then you’ll love it. It was just too much for me.

Pours mocha with a lingering lacing. Aroma is vanilla and Carmel. Taste is hops that's just a little too bitter for me. Was expecting a sweeter beer.

Sweet hedonistic Jesus. Thoughts in my head before having this beer: They can’t make a beer like Creme Brulee. My thoughts while having this beer: THEY TOTALLY MADE A BEER LIKE CREME BRULEE. Toasted sugar, tons of vanilla, cream, and some buttery chocolate. This is one hell of a dessert beer. You definitely get big notes of lactose and vanilla. Delicious. Be sure to bring your sweet tooth.

A- Vanilla extract, french vanilla ice cream, creme brulee, cheesecake, heaven.
A- Black color, dark liquid, tan head.
T- Sweet, strong vanilla, subtle bitterness, caramel, burnt sugar, cream.
P- Full body, average texture, average carbonation, sweet bitter finish.
O- This smells like heaven. Seriously, best smelling beer ever. Dessert in a cup. I’d give it an 11 on aroma if I could. Taste is very very sweet. 6-8 oz would be perfect, more than that is tough to get through. Overall, this was amazing. Can’t wait to try more from the Blackwater series.
