Back to Stouts

I guess I’m alternating between stouts and sours now. Oh well, as it starts to get colder I will probably shy away from sours and focus on the darker stuff. Here’s to a good start…

Beer: Creme Brulee

Brewery: Southern Tier

Style:Milk Stout

ABV: 9.6%

Location: Lakewood, NY

Appearance: Black, with half a finger of coffee colored head. Looks promising.

Aroma: Whoa! This beer smells like some sort of coffee-based dessert. Coffee, chocolate, sugar, and vanilla really come through in the nose. Smells absolutely fantastic

Taste: Awwww…….if only the beer tasted similar to how it smelled. Lots of caramel, some butterscotch, vanilla, chocolate, and coffee. The smell was sweet but manageable, but the way this thing tastes is just cloyingly sweet. Way to much for any normal person to handle

Mouthfeel: Sticky, medium/heavy bodied with moderate carbonation.It feels so sticky, you can still tell that you’ve recently had this beer 3 to 4 minutes after drinking it. It lingers that long

Drinkability: I had a bomber, but a single 12oz glass is more than enough. Maybe stick a scoop of vanilla ice cream in it or something.

Beer Advocate Grade: B+

My Grade: B

    I actually love this beer though it is definitely cloyingly sweet. It’s probably my favorite of the ST stouts behind only the oat stout (maybe). Definitely a dessert beer, and it needs some patience and maybe some cheesecake or vanilla ice cream between sips.

  1. I think it should come with a drinking buddy to help you finish it haha.
