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.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
1 chocolate, butterscotch, low hops
2 dark brown with a minimal tan head
3 sweet caramel, chocolate, alcohol, low saltiness
4 medium body with low-med carb, low astringency with a dry finish
5 I found that the caramel sweetness and salt were overpowered by the astringency and dryness, I like the salt stout idea and think that this can work with some tweaks

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
22oz bottle pours a dark brown with a tan head. Sweet caramel, light chocolate roast, cocoa powder, and sugar for aroma. Taste is pleasant, smooth creamy body with a rich caramel finish. Drinks like a milk stout, I would have liked a little more salt but this was enjoyable.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
22. Pours black with a dense and creamy tan head. Nice earthy roasty chocolatey nose. Creamy thick body with soft carb. Earthy and roasty more than salted-caramel-y, but that’s alright. Mild sweet finish.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Black with mahogany edges and a nice off white head. Nose is dark cocoa, prune, dried apricot, and caramel. Flavor is sharp dried fruit, round cocoa, and a subtle caramel and very faintly salty finish. Great balance of flavor elements. Unique, tasty, and inventive, this is great stuff.

Smooth stout. Not roasty. Not chewy. But nice flavor. Indeed, salt and caramel plentiful. Good.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz. bottle, pours black with an amber tinge and a medium tan head. Aroma is that of a milk stout, with notes of lactose, caramel, cocoa, and a little salt. Flavour is similar, with a great balance between the aforementioned notes all working in perfect harmony. Finishes on notes of roast and caramel. Really well-constructed in all respects. Packs a lot of flavour for a 6% brew. Great stuff.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark draft pour. Mild aroma and flavors of milk chocolate and roasted coffee. Could be a little bolder flavor, but I really liked it overall.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
This ice cream / brewery collaboration was something that I had been really looking forward to and that may have played into my disappointment. This stout pours a dark black color and the aroma is fairly muted. I was looking for a mix of chocolate and caramel and all I got was a light chocolate roast note. The taste from start of bottle to the warmed up bottle was dominated by salt with an undercurrent of coffee roast and chocolate that was neither dark nor milk. Fairly one note to me.
