Saltspring Island Ales - Creme Brulee Stout ReviewSaltspring Island Ales – Creme Brulee Vanilla Stout Review

Saltspring Island Ales has brewed a flavoured stout made with organic vanilla beans to give a creme brulee style beer experience. From the bomber bottle this beer pours deep and dark, nearly black in colour and has three-plus fingers of head which crests the glass. The aroma is rich with caramel, chocolate and vanilla tones with a lightly toasted/burnt character to it. Tasting the beer a creamy texture hits the tongue and leads into a toasty, vanilla-caramel flavour experience. The toasted notes have a burnt character to them and the vanilla adds sweetness and body to the mix. A mild coffee character also lingers in the mix leading into a fairly bitter finish for the style. This is a big-flavoured stout but one that is quite delicious and best enjoyed with friends.

Alcohol – 8.0%
Size – 650ml bottle

    I have had a few of this style of beer before. This one was the only one that was not seriously to sweet for me. It was still on the sweet side but it was still enjoyable. They just hit the right balance.
