The Rich, Creamy, Hard Kickin' Cow

Ever wanted to save time and have your dessert and get bombed at the same time?  Well welcome to Southern Tier's crème brûlée Imperial Milk Stout.

10% AND it tastes just like crème brûlée - no kidding.  It also made me feel exactly as happy as I am in a candy store.

This strong stout screams vanilla and caramel.  It's definitely not a session brew, but if you're thinking of switching it up in the digestif area, do me a favour - try this.  But don't try it after a 67oz steak for pete's sake; treat this bevy with the respect it deserves.  I'd recommend having it after either a late, light lunch, deli-esque perhaps, when you have no intentions of dinner that night.  That, or even after hearty salad.  One of those southern ones with corn and strips of steak in it.
Best yet - after a small sized helping of spinach, cheese, and beef or veal ravioli in a nicely seasoned tomato alfredo sauce. Oh yea, that's the one.

Ps. If you want to read about other Southern Tier (I love you Souther Tier) bevy's I've had - check these out: (I've had their Imperial Choklat Stout, but failed to write about it.  I will remedy that some day soon, that's a promise.)
