Growler shared by a friend. Pours black with a thick tan head. Aroma of vanilla, caramel, chocolate and coffee. Malty flavor transitions into velvety vanilla with some chocolate smoothness before a bitter coffee finish that keeps the beer from being too sweet. Stellar.

Pours dark black with minimal head. Wonderful aroma of sugars and coffee. However, the coffee is much more bitter than you’d expect. A great contrast to the Southern Tier version. Full mouth feel. An excellent beer. Tap at brewery.

On tap at, Warren! Pours thick unclear coffee black with a creamy darker beige head. Aroma is big vanilla and creamy sweet notes so pleasant in the nose. Flavor brings roasted dark and milk chocolate, vanilla and coffee, and a sweet creamy body. This is phenomenal!

UPDATED: APR 20, 2015 Live from NH. Growler (1L) from Tony, thanks! Split 3-ways with Julien and Chris.

Appearance: Dark brown with a small ring of beige foam and little llacing.

Aroma: Enticing crème brûlée aroma with caramel, coffee notes, light vegetal notes and light milky notes.

Taste: Light roasted acidity, low to moderate sweetness level, crème brûlée, vegetal coffee notes, milky presence and light bitterness.

Palate: Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Fluffy-chewy mouthfeel.

Overall: Wonderful crème brûlée aroma. The taste doesn’t quite lives up to the aroma, but it’s still a really tasty stout.
