4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

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.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.
