COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
“a stout of great contention” We are not the harbingers of truth as some may suggest but it may indeed be argued that our brewing philosophy is tantamount to a dessert with a bellicose past. How, you may ask, would a brewery determine a likeness to hard-coated custard? Our response is simple; it’s all in the power of history, and of course, the extra finesse needed to top off a contentious treat with definition.

By comprehending the labyrinthine movement of time, one would not think it strange to trace the errant path of an ordinary object such as a cream dessert only to discover that it has been the cause of cultural disputes since the middle ages. The British founders of burnt cream and from Spain, crema catalana, both stand by their creative originality and we respect that, but it was the French Crème Brûlée, amid the strife of contention, that survived to represent our deliciously creamy brew. 9.6% abv • 25º plato • 195º L • 22 oz / 1/6 keg 2-row pale malt / dark caramel malt / vanilla bean / lactose sugar / kettle hops: columbus / aroma hops: horizon

Flavour is sweet and creamy creme brulee in flavour and texture. Smooth and sweet finish. Lovely although I would expect it to be cloying in larger pours than the sample I had.7-4-8-4-15=3.8

joergen (20861) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - DEC 6, 2008
Bottle. Dark brown - almost black -coloured with a small beige head. Sweet aroma of burnt sugar, caramel, chocolate and hazellnuts. Overall it smells like a creme brulee. Sweet and roasted flavour of caramel, burnt sugar and chocolate with notes of hops. Roasted and hoppy finish. If the intention was to make a beer that tastes like a creme brulee, the brewer has succeeded with this one. But to sweet for me.

oh6gdx (20392) - Vasa, FINLAND - OCT 7, 2009
Bottled@Oliver Twist, Stockholm. Black colour, small, slightly off-white head. Aroma is vanilla, chocolate, coffee, roasted malts as well as some berries. And some more vanillaish notes. Flavour is toffee, cream, coffee, lots of vanilla with some slight hints of roasted malts. Totally kickass. Mild smoked wooden notes as it gets warm. A lovaly vanillabomb, which I am really fond of...

omhper (19447) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - NOV 30, 2009
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.

Very dark brown beer, practically opaque. Lighttane head that quickly dies away. Vanilla custard nose! Vanilla and indeed Creme Brulee in the mouth. An extraodinary tasting beer! Light and silky and sweet. Finishes with vanilla and burned toffee. Very slight bitterness in the aftertaste. Corking unusual beer!
