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; its 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 Crme Brle, amid the strife of contention, that survived to represent our deliciously creamy brew. 9.6% abv 25 plato 195 L 22 oz / 1/6 keg 2-row pale malt / dark caramel malt / vanilla bean / lactose sugar / kettle hops: columbus / aroma hops: horizon

This things pours nice dark color. Almost resembles a wine, but I may be making that association by the flavor. You can smell this thing long before you bring it towards your nose. So sweet. The flavor is like liquefied butterscotch. It initially tastes pretty good, but then it just goes to crap after the first sips because it is just too much. This is definitely where too much of a good thing is bad. With that said, it is still really good for about five minutes.

Lubiere (13183) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 8, 2008
A deep dark stotu with a thin moka head. A sweet amaretto aroma, almonds, vanilla, and sultry caramel. Aptly named. In mouth, kicks ass, with warming alcohol, vanilla and caramel ice cream, coconut, some woody notes. Rich and Intense. On tap at Empire brewpub, August 15 2008.

I am one of the people who did not get this beer. To me it was horribly sweet and overpowered with vanilla flavor. It was a drain pour.

wilkie (1208) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - DEC 6, 2008
Draught. Dark brown with ruby edges, creamy beige head. I can smell the aroma from across the table--cream, coffee, mocha, vanilla, hazlenut, butterscotch, toffee--it smells great. Flavor is similar, hazelnuts, butterscotch, dried out by the vanilla and roasted malts in the finish. Delicious chocolate aftertaste.

joergen (26658) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - DEC 6, 2008
Bottle. Dark brown - almost black -coloured with a small beige head. Sweet aroma of burnt sugar, caramel, chocolate and hazellnuts. Overall it smells like a creme brulee. Sweet and roasted flavour of caramel, burnt sugar and chocolate with notes of hops. Roasted and hoppy finish. If the intention was to make a beer that tastes like a creme brulee, the brewer has succeeded with this one. But to sweet for me.

Wow does this beer smell like butterscotch, and from a mile away!! Like a Werther’s candy. A lot of roast in the flavor and some vanilla. A ton of butterscotch. One of the most unique crazy beers I’ve ever had. Very very sticky. Lots of lactose. This is tolerable in very small amounts.
