COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
“a stout of great contention” We are not the harbingers of truth as some may suggest but it may indeed be argued that our brewing philosophy is tantamount to a dessert with a bellicose past. How, you may ask, would a brewery determine a likeness to hard-coated custard? Our response is simple; it’s all in the power of history, and of course, the extra finesse needed to top off a contentious treat with definition.

By comprehending the labyrinthine movement of time, one would not think it strange to trace the errant path of an ordinary object such as a cream dessert only to discover that it has been the cause of cultural disputes since the middle ages. The British founders of burnt cream and from Spain, crema catalana, both stand by their creative originality and we respect that, but it was the French Crème Brûlée, amid the strife of contention, that survived to represent our deliciously creamy brew. 9.6% abv • 25º plato • 195º L • 22 oz / 1/6 keg 2-row pale malt / dark caramel malt / vanilla bean / lactose sugar / kettle hops: columbus / aroma hops: horizon

Totalne zaskoczenie. Aromat cudownie waniliowy i śmietankowy, intensywny i zachęcający. Smak słodki, pełno wanilii, laktozy, czekolady, toffee. Zajebiste, płynny deser!

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 (332) - 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.

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.

Never thought of a dessert beer but one never knows enough. Pours dark as night. Sweet, strong vanilla flavor. Creamy and full bodied. A nice after dinner beer for the winter by the fireplace.

Something else and dessert-like. Aromas and flavors of cream, roasted malt, caramelized sugar with a mild sweetness. Really dark and smooth.
