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.

Draft at 16 Tons Taphouse. Pours a medium dark brown, little head. Aroma lacto, salt, caramel. Body lively, finish sweet and getting sweeter. Nice, but wouldnít want more than an 8 oz pour.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: MAY 3, 2013 On tap at Belmont Station.
A: Very dark mahogany with a thin creme colored head. Legs are present when glass is swirled
.N: Salted caramel is first note evident. Thereís milk chocolate, a hint of coffee, and some licorice. Itís pretty simple, but it smells good.
T: A sweet treat, similar in vein to the ice cream itís taken from. Slightly salty with very little bitterness to be found.
M: Smooth and creamy. A bit like melted ice cream, albeit with a lighter body.
O: This works and itís very creative. A perfect accompaniment to ice cream.

From the growler that was filled at Breakside... Poured dark brown, near opaque. Not quite black. With a light tan, khaki head. Nose had some roast, honey sweetness and a hint of malt. Kind of dry, big sweetness. Toasted caramel with a hint of saltiness. Malty, sweetness, toffee, lactose. The salt made it dry and made going for another sip all the more worth it. Bitter-sweet and one to savor. Paired perfectly with a bourbon soaked bread pudding we had with it.
