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, weíre 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.

Bottle. Head is initially average sized, creamy, light brown, mostly lasting. Body is dark brown to black. Aroma is moderately malty (chocolate, roasted grain, caramel), with a light note of vanilla. Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, creamy/watery texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic. For a sweet stout, itís drinkable, but ultimately it just isnít that notable. And it looks very nice (creamy lasting head), but the aroma is mild and plain. The mouthfeel is on the edge of being nice, but itís a bit too light and watery for this type of beer (thankfully not syrupy though).

Dark black pour... Aroma of roasted malts, salt, caramel, dark chocolate, coffee... Flavor is roasted malts, sweet caramel, dark chocolate bitterness... Not a whole lot of saltiness in the flavor, maybe a hint on the palate... Solid

Pours a dark brown with a tan, frothy head that dicipates quickly. Minimal lacing. First thing i noticed in the aroma is cherries. Nuts and vanilla pop up in the aroma as the beer sits for a couple minutes. Definetly creamy on the palate. Medium-bodied that finishes with the taste that reminds me of gargolling warm salt water when you have a sore throat. I think i would choose this beer over warm salt water anyday.

jsnicholas (297) - Woodinville, Washington, USA - FEB 9, 2015
Bottle (22oz $6): Nearly black with big tan head. Aroma mostly roasted malts. Some sweetness. Taste is the same with some chocholate and maybe a little salt (maybe it was just because it was suggested?). Medium body. I like it, but wish they came in 12oz. Would be a regular.

vyvvy (4394) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - FEB 7, 2015
On tap at the brewpub - Pours dark brown with a nut brown hue and an off-white head. The aroma has sweet roast, dark caramel and mild chocolate. It has a medium / full body that is quite smooth and has soft carbonation. The flavor starts with dark caramel, smooth roast, hint of salt and lush malt. The finish has just a bit of a bit to it. Very nice stout.

Bomber. Caramel malt aroma with roasted malt and some chocolate. Pours black with large light brown head with good retention and excellent lacing. Starts with good roasted malt flavors and some chocolate. Finishes with lots of caramel and a little bit of salt. Nice stout!

Good stout. Was hoping for better. Smells good. Taste good. Little fizz on the tongue. Flavor ends quickly. Which is disappointing. But still good.

Bottle. Pours black with tan head. Aroma is sweet caramel, lactose, a touch of roast. Taste is smooth, sweet upfront with a touch of dry roastiness on the back, big caramel finish, full bodied, low carbonation. Overall, good.

Bottle in Seattle. Dark black-brown, small tan head. Roasty nose, sweet dark beer, some roast on the finish too, light coffee. Mild lactic-caramel and maybe a pinch of salt if I want to find it. Creamy, sharp caramel and chocolate flavor. Really quite tasty.
