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.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
650ml bottle. Pours an opaque black with a large, frothy, long lasting, tan head that laces nicely. Sweet aroma of roasted malt, caramel and coffee. Sweet flavour of roasted malt, caramel, chocolate, vanilla and just a hint of salt in a mildly bitter coffee finish. Medium body with a creamy, smooth, oily texture and soft to flat carbonation. Very tasty.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On draft at Beer Belly in Albany. The pour is a medium brown with hints of garner shining through there is a thin ring of khaki colored head that leaves a couple spots of lace. The aroma is pretty disappointing. There is a light caramel up front, but the bitter roast just moves in and takes over. The caramel vanishes and it’s left with a dry dark cocoa powder. Eh. The flavor is not good. There is a lactose sweetness right up front and that same cocoa powder throughout. It’s dry and not that great. The salt is nowhere to be found and the caramel is incredibly lacking. The mouth feel is thin and light with a thin carbonation that makes this drink like chocolate water. The aftertaste is lightly bitter and cocoa based. This isn’t a very good beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Roasty stout aroma. Flavor shows a little on the back end of the salt and caramel, but it’s mostly just a nice stout. Looks nice, body a bit thin but smooth. Very pleasant aftertaste.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Alibi Room. Pours a very dark brown with a decent tan head. Aroma is coffee, chocolate, roasted malt and a little salt on the background. Taste is sweet, roasted malt and some alchol notes, what is not really good as there is not much of alcohol. Burnt malt aftertaste. Would be better without alcohol in the flavour.

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

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
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
