2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 7/20
22oz bottle. Aroma: Sickeningly sweet caramel aroma as soon as I pop the cap. Vanilla extract. Some coffee and chocolate notes if you dig for them. Appearance: Black in color with small brown highlights. Dark tan head was full and creamy with good retention. Good lacing. Flavor: Whatever flavors this beer possessed are overwhelmed by the flavors of burnt caramel and vanilla extract. Palate: Full bodied. Medium carbonation. Light alcohol warmth in back of mouth. Overall: Drainpour. This beer suffers from the same problem that Chocklat did: Overwhelming ’fake’ extract flavors. Nauseatingly sweet caramel flavor and low quality vanilla extract bury anything else going on here. Not for me.

Fľaša, Tmavá čierna farba, nahnedlá pena, rýchlo padla. Vôňa úúúúžasná! Vanilková zmrzlina, vaječný likér. Chuť krásna, jemne sladká, začína to vaječným likérom, postupuje jemným kapučínom a končí vanilkovou zmrzlinou. Je to úžasné pivo so stredným telom, vyššou nasýtenosťou a úžasne dlhou dochuťou. Dlho som nič lepšie nepil. Díky Cuso!

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Asahiya or CBB. I thought I’d rated this a long time ago... anyways, this dessert beer poured a dark inky black with a tan head. The aroma was of a lush freshly baked creme brule. The taste had a bit more of a stout quality to the creme brule and it was exceptionally sweet. It pairs very well with vanilla ice cream, cheesecake and other sweets. Trying to drink a whole bomber in one shot has me thinking it would get exceptionally cloying over time. All in all a well made dessert beer.

"AS ADVERTISED is the key here. Sweet? Check. tastes just like liquified creme brulee? check. can’t knock a beer for tasting exactly like it says on the label. if you like CB, you’ll like this beer. If it’s a favorite like for me, you’ll love this beer. Burnt sugar, vanilla custard. Yum! I will concede it would be hard to drink a lot of this, but that wasn’t really the point.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Fine, so I have a sweet tooth. What of it? Pours opaque black, medium brown head, creamy with nice lacing. Aroma is vanilla chocolate roasty caramel. Flavor is very sweet indeed, tons of vanilla, chocolate, toasted marshmallow, caramel, toffee, hard candies. A respectable amount of bitterness to bring things a bit back toward balanced. Medium body. Enjoyable for what it is.

22oz bottle. Butterscotch aroma, sweet. Black with red tint and beige head. Taste is sweet and butterscotch plus a little vanilla. Much too sweet for me.

Like drinking a tub of butterscotch with caramel sauce. Sickeningly sweet. Intolerable. Drain pour. We tried giving it away at the bar, and no one would take it.

4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
(trade w/Olking) what an aroma! Smelled the wonderful sugary sweetness of Creme Brule as soon as I opened the bottle. Small tan head which is pretty much gone now. Somewhat thick body. Flavors of brown sugar, vanilla, and caramel with a boozy backend that lingers on the palate. Perhaps a little too boozy than I?d like. I’ve been wanting to try this for a few years. Now wish I had traded for several bottles!

2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
From tap. Dark brown with small beige head. Hot damn, does this beer nail its title. Blindfolded, you’d swear you were smelling eponymous dessert. Strong smells of french vanilla flavoring, icing, brown sugar, etcetera. Taste follows, though at a slightly reduced intensity. If you plug your nose, all you get is sweet. Thick and heavy. Cloying. Well executed (I think this is exactly what ST wanted to brew), but unfinishable. More marvel than beer.
