COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A dessert stout brewed with lactose caramel and fleur de sel, inspired by our friends Tyler & Kim Malek at Salt & Straw. Tyler has been working on perfecting a lactose caramel syrup that mimics the flavor in his sea salt and caramel ice cream. After a few test blends, we’re worried that this might be the most addictive dessert beer ever made.

On draught at Breakside. Dark chocolate stout with a subtle, but noticeable salted caramel taste. Had it last year at Breakside in a float with Salt & Straw ice cream, which pushed it into dessert bliss territory.

Fatehunter (1536) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - APR 21, 2015
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.

DuffMan (7540) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - APR 21, 2015
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.

monk191 (1219) - California, USA - APR 17, 2015
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.

onceblind (5175) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 10, 2015
Dark heavy brown pour with a foamy ivory head. Rich dark chocolaty nose with a bit of sea salt and rich, earthy caramel tones. Nice smooth flavor with a medium-full body, nice nutty earthy roasted chocolate flavors with some salt, finishes a bit biscuity and caramelly. Not bad.

On tap at the Drake. Great stout. The salted caramel just barely comes through, but it’s tough to complain about the result: a dark, toasty, well-balanced, lightly sweet brew.

BBB63 (6373) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - APR 4, 2015
Bottled: Deep reddish brown with an okay head and some spotty lace. Whilest it delivers on some promised aspects there is a husky grainy like off note that distracts. Needed more malt richness on both the flavor and mouthfeel IMO. Roast and coffee tones are pleasant enough. Then there is an out of place lactic twang.... Just too jumbled up to really make a mark nor make it something I would want again. Honestly disappointed.

julesjis (252) - Oregon, USA - APR 1, 2015
Poured from a 22. Aroma is caramel cotton candy sweet. Flavor is very sweet and has a bitter bite to it. The beer is a little too sweet for me, but overall not bad.

liquidhedonism (287) - Beaverton, Oregon, USA - MAR 19, 2015
22 oz bottle. Aroma: malty and roasty, with hints of coffee, caramel, toffee, and leather. Taste/Palate: sweet and creamy; finishes slightly astringent.

Thanks to buckeye boy for this. Poured jet black with a small beige head that disappeared instantly. Aroma is predominately roasty grains with the flavor being much the same with the salty finish that I enjoyed. Would’ve enjoyed it more with a more full body.
