You may remember Emelisse Crème Brulee Stout from several years ago.  It was a favourite of ours - and many others.  Sadly, Emelisse no longer produce this beer, and former brewer Kees Bubberman moved to open his own brewery.

The good news is Kees has brewed something just as special.  He had to brew a different beer to make it his own, so chose to make it bigger and richer.  It truly is dessert in a glass, but remains a big, bold imperial stout as well.

Remove the cap and the sweet fudge aroma bursts out of the bottle.  Chocolate, vanilla and a little burnt sugar.  The flavour follows suit with the addition of the roasted malts and the slightest hint of coffee. 

The body is rich and smooth, but somehow not that thick and sticky, with some hop bitterness adding balance to the sweet malt body.  A very clever beer!

 

And guess what?:  Kees has just laid down a full batch of the Caramel Fudge Stout filled into Bourbon barrels.  We can’t wait til they are ready later this year!
