Crème Brew-léeDessert Stout • 7.2% •
Brewed with chocolate malt, oats and roasted barley, Beau’s Crème Brew-lée Dessert Stout is decadent, dark, and dreamy. It satisfies on those long cold nights with a winter warmer that is both drink and dessert. Just unwrap, pop the crown, then sit back and savour.
History and Style
The beer bottle’s gold foil label alludes to the traditional cracking of caramelized sugar on crème brulée for dessert, but is also a nod to Kintsugi, the Japanese art of mending broken pottery with silver and gold. The time-honoured practice renders the glittering new creation more valuable and treasured: a thoughtful sentiment for the 2023 holiday season.
Pours dark brown with lingering tan foam. Aromas are of caramel and burnt sugar, with notes of chocolate, a hint of vanilla, and coffee. Flavours are chocolate and roasted malt, with balanced sweetness. Medium mouthfeel with smooth creaminess. Finishes with slight alcohol warmth.
- Dessert and pastry stouts were newly added to the list of official BJCP beer styles in 2023
- The paper wrap is a throw-back to a series of beers Beau’s released in Spring 2014 for a special barrel aged feature at the LCBO
