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.

reebtogi (5354) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - APR 18, 2016
650ml bottle pours almost black in color with a finger of light mocha colored head that leaves some spotted lacing on the glass. Aroma is caramel with hints of coffee and vanilla. Taste is a caramel malty sweetness with a light coffee and roasted grain bitterness. Light to medium bodied with good carbonation. Overall, a nicely crafted brew, with interesting blend of flavors, but a little bit thin in the body.

Lactose free caramel, wait what? Never mind the brewers deScription. This is a great beer with the salty saviry notes really set it apart from the pack.

Nice delicious smell, also beautiful thick fine head lingers. Oh man. What a taste, almost like a coffee stout with a few sugar packets. Vanilla flavor. Only issues: a little thin and maybe slightly too sweet

On tap at Hops and Pie poured a clear dark reddish brown with a small lasting tan head. Aromas of roasted malt, coffee and bakers cocoa. Palate was light bodied and smooth with a dry finish. Flavors of roasted malt, cocoa, coffee, salt and light caramel with a smooth dry lingering salty cocoa finish.

Brentv (601) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 30, 2016
On tap at McNally Taproom in Hillsboro, OR. Black pour with a small beige head. Big coffee aroma and taste. I don’t get much sea salt or caramel but I sure like this beer. Nice sweet finish. Full bodied.

blueshockey24 (318) - Colorado, USA - JAN 23, 2016
Bomber. Pours black with thin off-white head that diminishes fairly quickly. Aroma is Malt, Chocolate and a little spice. Taste is sweet caramel malt with a dark chocolate burnt toffee finish. Thinner than i expected. I think it’s good.

Was excited about this but it wasn’t all that good .. . Pours s deep brown ack .. Good coco foam .. Tar and sweet burnt molasses . Very lacking in the important departments .. . You know you’ve made it when you get interviewed live on a local news morning show

KansaiBeerLvrs (4005) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JUL 9, 2015
Bomber via Ezo Beer served in a stout glass and paired with a salted caramel macaron. It poured inky black with a big thick fluffy head of tan foam. The aroma is a little roasty, chocolate and caramel with some seasalt. Med-full bodied with a velvety mouthfeel. The taste is dark bitter chocolate, roasty, a bit of caramel while the salt comes through in the finish that makes your mouth water for more. With the macaron you get more fruity flavors and caramel accented. Good.
