Lovely sweet fruity nose and flavor. Think Jewbelation meets Three Philosophers. Very drinkable aperitif/dessert beer.

scraff (2121) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAR 7, 2010
22oz - Deep brown, light tan creamy head. Oaked caramel-cream aromas warm to swirls of vanilla brown sugar and booze. Deep toffee and vanilla flavors round with light swirls of spiced dark fruit and and oak. Full bodied, soft carbonation, warming, light wood finish. This one has aged gracefully...

halfonit (1129) - Fall River, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 16, 2010
Been holding onto this one for a while for a special occasion. So here goes.......pours a hazy deep amber/brown color. Aroma is full of oak, vanilla, figs, raisin, and a little chocolate. Flavor is of malts, oak, vanilla, molasses, licorice, and chocolate. Leaves a chocolaty oak finish. Bravo.

wavers1 (872) - Notown, California, USA - NOV 25, 2010
dont get this too cold. its very viscous, and i got it to about 40 degrees before pouring. i almost thought it was flat, the bubbles riaing very slowly in slow motion, making it look very cloudy. after it warmed up for about in hour, the next pour was a clear liquid with a nice, slow rising, heavily cascading head. very nice pour at the proper temp, and never seen anything quite like that. anyways, the aroma is very nice, super sweet tons of vanilla, bourbon, molasses, oak, another nice olfactory experience from STBC. the taste is not quite there, still nice, but a lil too sweet, and i like the brulee. over all a vvery nice hit, almost another home run for them!

Kinz (3188) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - JAN 3, 2011
First beer (not homebrew) of 2011! Been holding this for a couple of years. Medium amber, surprisingly fizzy initial head, but fades quickly and completely. Aroma is richly malty and doughy yeast over caramel. Flavor is a perfect match. Not really anything else going on, but really good aged malt flavors. No oak noticed. Nice.

IPAsavedMYlife (344) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - MAY 30, 2011
Quite a bit of sweetness, compact flavor. Caramel malt, some hop favor. Has all the makings of a good beer but is a bit round.

manuchampions (1227) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 23, 2011
650ml bottle from trade. Pours a deep, cloudy ruby with thin off white head. Aroma is fruity malt, oak, slightly sweet. Flavour is of dark fruit, caramel, creme brulee, and brown sugar. A big, sweet, complex brew.

Bottle 650ml @ Geokkjer
Pours deep amber with a off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, caramel, coconut, oak and vanilla. Taste is heavy sweet and light bitter with a long sweet, coconut, vanilla finish. Body is full, texture is oily, carbonaiton is soft.

Palme (2988) - Bergen, NORWAY - APR 23, 2012
0.65l bottle courtesy of Meilby and shared with the Kristiansandsmafia. Never thought I’d get to try this, so big thanks for sharing! The pour on this one is clear dark nutty brown, actually quite lovely looking, and it has a low light sidesticking off-white head. On the aroma it’s lovely sweet and kinda oaky with lots of sticky sweet strawberries, some vanilla-oaky touches and caramel. Feels quite complex and very nice. It has a near creamy-sticky texture with a average small bubbly and quite comfortable carbonation level.The flavors are sweetish, caramely and sticky with sweet consentrated strawberries, vanilla and some rum raisins. Wish I could just pop a bottle and enjoy it over an evening because this was really nice! Again, big big thanks for sharing! 30.03.2012
