Bottle at Beer Cellar. As expected salted caramel and roasted malt dominate with a light buttery edge and notes of vanilla, gentle sweet finish. Nicely executed, a pleasant dessert drink.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap @ Breakside. Black colored beer with a tan head. Pretty ashy and burnt smelling. A lot of roasted malt, roasted nuts, and some caramel. A pretty generic smelling stout... Has some more sweet caramel and vanilla flavor components, but still pretty roasty and ashy. Kind of acidic and thin. Pretty bitter as well, and I don’t really get the salt. Wasn’t anywhere near as big a fan of this as others.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a finger of tan head on a black body.
The aroma is caramel, roasted malt, cocoa and a little coffee.
The taste is milky, caramel, coffee bitter and a general sweetness at the end. Nice.
The texture is thicker with moderate carbonation.
Enjoyable and interesting.

Bottle, shared with Parksy and phantomhennes. Dark brown with copper highlights and a lasting beige head. Bready caramel malts, fudgey chocolate, some bitter roast. Nicely balanced, not killing us with sweetness or extract artificial crap. And quite malty too, more full bodied than anticipated. Tasty.

A very good, interesting stout. Pours a deep carbonated brown-black with a tan head. Smells of salt, caramel, vanilla and strawberries. Lots of fruitiness in the taste, with strawberry and raspberry, followed by some vanilla, caramel, and a salty finish. More strawberry in the after taste. Had in the bottle.
