Creme Brulee (Imperial Milk Stout)

Well, it’s certainly an extraordinary beer and I like it – quite a lot!
22 oz bomber shared with a few of the usual suspects down at The Brick Store, Decatur, GA, USA. I like to share when I can, and this seemed like the PERFECT beer (22 oz of pure sweetness) to be distributing amongst several people.
Pour is a simple dark brown pour with almost no head or lace. Essentially, across the board all I get is a delicious toffee taste. Lovely rich, caramel notes. The beer is very sweet, but this bottle is a few months old and fellow BA pghlee suggested that the small amount of age on this has made it more drinkable than it was when it was a bit younger. ABV is nowhere to be seen.
OK, I admit I don’t want a few 20 oz imperial pints of this stuff, but a 6-10 oz pour as a desert beer would really hit the spot for me. Very rich (obviously), very sweet (duh!) but considering what we are dealing with here the drinkability is huge.
Like some other beers this is likely to induce a love hate relationship. For now, I’m on the love side, but with an understanding that this is not a “normal” beer at all. Take it that way and you’ll feel better about the experience.
