2015 BJCP Category: 30A Spice/Herb/Vegetable Beer (base style: 16A Sweet Stout)
AROMA: As the name indicates, the aroma is of Crème Brûlée (vanilla custard). There is some dark malt sweetness, iced coffee, and minor alcohol presence as well. Simple but enticing nose. 9/12
APPEARANCE: Opaque ink black. Moderate tan foam retains and laces fairly well. 2/3
FLAVOR: Vanilla dominates the palette from beginning to end. Slight vanilla extract-like taste at first with a strong caramelized custard flavor on the finish. The dark malt is there mostly for backbone and does not create for much distinctive character. Bitterness doesn’t really emerge until the finish as does the alcohol. Strange combination of bourbon-like vanilla booziness and dry bitterness on the finish with a cough medicine-like aftertaste. The palette is delectable in small doses only. 13/20
MOUTHFEEL: Full-bodied with fairly low CO2 to give it a viscous, creamy texture. The 10% ABV warmth is gentle, but difficult to ignore. A challenge to drink more than a sip at a time. 3/5
OVERALL IMPRESSION: Definitely delivers on its name, but goes a little overboard on the sweetness. A borderline novelty brew. 7/10
TOTAL SCORE: 34/50

Castle, NYC, USA. Distinctive, bold nuances like rubber. Slightly artificial.
Totalne zaskoczenie. Aromat cudownie waniliowy i śmietankowy, intensywny i zachęcający. Smak słodki, pełno wanilii, laktozy, czekolady, toffee. Zajebiste, płynny deser! rami_pl (4995) - Warszawa, POLAND - FEB 19, 2017

22 ounce bomber bottle. Smells sweet. Tastes sweet. Taste like desert. Caramel and vanilla tastes are heavy. pretty smooth on palate. Overall very nice beer. john44 (3510) - SW London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 27, 2017
Keg Half Pint at Craft Beer Co, Clerkenwell, London in Dec 2011 - Very Dark Brown (almost Black) in colour. Very very sweet and rich stout. Very aromatic; incredibly it does smell and taste like crème brulee. Very Malty; roasty malts, lots and lots of vanilla, toffee, toasted/burnt sugar, chocolate, lactose. Hoppy; spicy floral hops. Unique taste. Stunning dessert beer! Really this is an Imperial Milk Stout or an Imperial Sweet Stout if there was such a style. Lovely Impy Stout! (2011-12-01)

12oz bottle. Pours dark brown with a moderate tan head. Aroma is largely vanilla with some toffee, caramel, and sugar. Taste is vanilla, toffee, caramel, and cream. Lightly bitter roast finish with some lingering caramel sweetness. Medium body. Barely any carbonation. Mouthfeel is a little light for an imperial stout but it is pleasantly coating; smooth and sticky. polo_marco (333) - milton, Vermont, USA - JAN 20, 2017
Smells like sweet sticky caramel and cream. Nice dead of night black color with one finger head thick lacing on the glass. Taste is awesome with butter toffee sugar cookies sweet cream caramels molasses slightly burnt bitter ending. Full thick creamy body with flattish carbonation with smooth tacky finish. Awesome stout but definitely more desert then every day drinkers stout but still tasty none the less. Nice job on that brew. mikeymike (75) - Kansas, USA - JAN 17, 2017
UPDATED: JAN 30, 2017 12 oz bottle. Pours very dark brown/black with a 1/2 finger mocha head which dissipates rapidly. Aroma is a a vanilla sugar bomb with a hint of chocolate. Taste is vanilla sweetness and milk chocolate, but very one note. Medium body with decent mouthfeel. Overall, this vanilla bomb was a bit too much for me. I prefer my big stouts with a little more complexity.
