4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Kuhnhenn. Pours a very dark brown to black with medium off-white head. Aroma very heavy on cofee and vanilla, with hints of chocolate, brown sugar, and toffee. Taste is sweet, but no surprise from the aroma. This beer goes down all too easy with a creamy mouthfeel and a lasting taste of vanilla and cream.

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.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.
