Partial Transcript: "On Tap -- Crème Brulee Imperial Milk Stout

Hi. I'm James Knott and today we are talking about Crème Brulee Imperial Milk Stout from Southern Tier Brewing Company in Lakewood, NY. The company was opened in 2002 and already has beer for sale in at least 25 U.S states, 2 Canadian provinces and 5 other countries.

Crème Brulee Imperial Milk Stout comes in 22oz bottles and is 10% ABV. Serve it in a snifter at 42 degrees Fahrenheit. Vanilla beans and lactose sugar add to the rich flavor of this brew. Nathan from Southern Tier calls it a desert beer and recommends enjoying it with chocolate or vanilla ice cream.

This is part of Southern Tier's Blackwater series -- a series of 5 seasonal imperial stouts -- named for their dark appearance.

For those who don't know, Crème Brulee is a dessert with a custard base -- usually vanilla flavored -- topped with a layer of hard caramel that is usually formed by torching sugar on top.
