3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
22oz bottle to my sinfter. A generous pour gives way to a deep brown ale, opaque with one finger of creamy off white head. Oh my god, huge gigantic aromas of rich sweet caramel and vanilla. Toffee and a hint of roast. Mostly ridiculous cream and milky caramel. The taste is retarded, like drinking a werthers caramel followed by roasted malts and smooth vanilla. Slight earthy hop bitterness balances the creme brulee sweetness. Nice crisp finish with a pleasant linger. Moderate body with a nice carbonation. Beautiful dessert beer, I really don’t know how southern tier created such a rich and full flavored stout that honestly tastes like creme brulee. Sweet

4.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Another one of my favorite beers. Its basically the best possible stout, combined with creme brulee whats not to love. It pours a deep black. It smells of fresh vanilla. It blends together cream, chocolate, sugar, oak, toffee, nuts, and malt in the perfect mix. Its a bit sweet but its supposed to be. Just amazing.

Bottle; thanks 1970s Boy!
Aroma Is Madagascan vanilla pods on aroma. Devonshire cream. Chocolate. Vanilla.Taste is chocolate, vanilla, blackcurrants, leather and cherry tart. I now know why the legend who is The Cad raves about this so much.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a very dark brown with a minimal mocha head and spotty lacing. Aroma is of vanilla, and lots of it! Taste is sweet with the vanilla dominating and burnt sugar and molasses following. Solid bodied and creamy on the palate. Overall, very solid, yet sweet stout that will appeal to your sweet tooth.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Dessert, and then a slap. Pours inky with a quick light brown head. Nose is vanilla and poignant. The sip is very sweet and creamy for a moment, then the combination of vanilla, hops, alcohol, and roasted barley all come crashing in on the palate. Did I mention this stuff has vanilla in it? It’s interesting and will ultimately be a bit polarizing. I could have a small amount but I don’t think I could drink a whole bomber of it...too rich.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured from a bomber into a chalice on 03.20.15.
A: Creme brulee. Sweet cream, vanilla, and caramelized sugar.
A: 1 finger off white head that fades to a ring and some fluff. Black body with no red in the glass.
T: Sweet cream, vanilla, and caramelized sugar dominate. Chocolate, bitter chocolate on the back end, woodiness, and marshmallow are subtle.
P: Creamy smooth. Thin, but not watery.
O: They really nailed the flavor. It is super, almost icky sweet, though. I should have shared the bottle because the sweetness wore on me.

Whoa, this one lives up to the name! Pours dark black with small tan head. The aroma, holy crap the aroma... Tons of creme soda and butterscotch. You won’t smell another beer like this. The taste is massive vanilla and bitter malts, the finish is big time butterscotch and toasted marshmellow. This beer is big on lactose, so understand that you’re drinking a sweet stout. It is quite sweet.

Old rating. Yeah, really really sweet. Dark pour. Creme brulee elements all there caramel, creamy, burnt sugar, vanilla, some coffee and chocolates. It is just so amazingly sweet its hard to drink more than a few sips. Maybe a dessert beer shared with several friends.
