4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at The Bier Stein Eugene last Wednesday. Paired with Firestone Stickee Monkee - not bad ;) . Anyways, WTF is going on here but awesomeness? Himalayan pink salt in a beer? Winning. Smells of peppercorns, cocoa, thick sugar, and a hint of malts. Flavors have a sweet up front kick, a cocoa salt mid-body, a molasses tipped off third quarter, ending with a Caldera classic bitter end. Somehow all in a Red Ale - and it works? One extra Overall point for creative cleverness.

Tap at the source. Chocolate, pink sea salt, pink peppercorns. Interesting. Pour is clear deep red with a small white head. Aroma and flavor with notable cacao, rich light-toasted malt and a slightly spicy peppery finish. Really interesting beer. Loved it but one is all I could do. Totally worth trying. Not too much salt.

Clear dark amber color with ivory head. Big vanilla, chocolate, toffee sweet aromas. Medium body. Sweet chocolate, vanilla, earthy molasses, toffee flavors with some drying black pepper bitterness to finish---surprisingly tasty for how sweet it is...

Draft at sb. Pours a murky dark amber with a dense and creamy tan head that fades. Huge cocoa nose, molasses and soft sweet cherry peppers showing. Creamy thick body with soft carb. Big caramel, cocoa, and molasses mid palate with a long cocoa finish.
