3.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
This one was a little over the top on the on the flavors...reminded me of a wawa caramel latte. Caramel and vanilla dominate this extremely sweet beer. Definately a desert beer; would make a great beer float with a scoop of ice cream.

On draft at Clubhouse BFD. Dark brown with a faint head. Aroma is like a birthday cake. The aroma fills the air from a few feet away. Pure creme brulee as advertised. So strong it almost blocks out any other aroma. Taste is smooth and sweet with a sweet sugary taste that lingers. Palate is sugar, molasses and cream. Followed by more creme. Not the most tantalizing thing I’ve ever had on my palate but definitely tasty.

Aroma - Wow chocolate, some coffee, some nuts. Pours black with minimal head. The taste is sweet. The body/palate is medium, the texture creamy, the carbonation average and the finish long. This hits the nail on the head - Very good

This beer definitely lives up to its name. I nearly overdosed on vanilla. Not my thing but i can appreciate that it was well done.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber baby! Bought from Mo’s Bottle Shop(RIP). It pours out black with a nice creamy head. You know this stuff is going to be sweet right away form the aroma. Huge caramel and vanilla smells. I mean freaking huge caramel smells! This smells like dessert in a glass. The taste is very sweet upfront. Caramel and vanilla blend together with the first sip to give you a nice custard flavor. But for a very sweet beer the aftertaste is kinda bitter. The taste falls off fast. I look for a more lingering mouthfeel with a stout and IMO this doesn’t deliver. Overall a very tasty beer, but not something that I would drink very often. Unless I want my dang teeth to rot out.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
bottle. Black with half finger head. Thick and dense, somewhat oily mouthfeel. Huge over-the-top vanilla. I love vanilla, but this is pushing it. It reminds me a bit of the time I tried vanilla extract -- there’s so much vanilla it seems bitter.

Delicious vanilla aroma truly captures the smell of creme brulee. Definitely smells like a dessert.

Pours from bomber a lovely, thick black goodness. Aroma immediate of vanilla and chocolate. Taste of much the same. Truly creamy, but not overly sweet. Very satisfying stout.

What to say that hasn’t been said already - this is a big kids treat. Delicious, sweet, and smells heavenly. The 22oz had a fairly high price tag but it was oh so worth it.
This is definitely a sipper - savor the flavor because the alcohol is so well hidden you’ll think you got duped.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
22 ounce bottle into snifter, bottled on 1/9/2014. Pours dense pitch black color with a 2 finger fairly dense tan head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of huge caramel, toffee, vanilla, butterscotch, cream, custard, brown sugar, toast, light coffee, and light herbal hops. Fantastic aromas with very authentic creme brulee character with light-moderate hop presence; with big strength. Taste of big caramel, toffee, vanilla, butterscotch, custard, cream, brown sugar, toast, light coffee, and light herbal/pine hops. Slight earthy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of caramel, toffee, vanilla, cream, butterscotch, brown sugar, custard, toast, light coffee, and slight herbal/pine hops on the finish for a while. Incredible robustness and complexity of dark malt, lactose, and vanilla flavors; with just enough hop bitterness to cut out any cloying sweetness on the finish. Medium carbonation and full bodied; with a very creamy, slick, and slightly syrupy mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a light warming present after the finish. Overall this is an outstanding imperial milk stout! All around awesome balance of dark malt, vanilla, and lactose flavors with moderate hop balance; and extremely smooth to sip on for the big ABV. A highly enjoyable offering.

22Fl. Oz. Bottle. Poured dark brown with a small tan head leaving a little bit of lacing on the glass. Aroma is a blast of vanilla and caramel (cre me brûlée). Taste is quite sweet but it is in all honestly delicious consistent with aroma, you feel the booze but it is very well combined with the other flavors. Not as heavy as I expected and very enjoyable. Great beer.
