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, we’re worried that this might be the most addictive dessert beer ever made.

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.

jgb9348 (5613) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - AUG 12, 2016
Deep dark brown coloured body with a rich, four centimetre tall pure deep brown head. Aroma of alcohol, caramel, sugar, honey, grain and quite a bit of chocolate. Medium to Full-bodied; Sweet chocolate and honey flavour with a lot of caramelised sugars and roasted malt throughout and a noticeable bitterness towards the end. Aftertaste shows the roasted malt, oatmeal, grain, alcohol and especially the sweetness throughout. Overall, a very nice beer with a good balance of sweet and bitter, with a full rich malt finish - nice and pungent, even in the heat of Hawaii! I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Sack N Save (Foodland) in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii [Island], Hawaii yesterday on 11-August-2016 sampled in my hotel/condo a few minutes later after the power went out on 11-August-2016 for US$6,88.

(En fût à la source): Sec, salin, vanillé et caramélisé. Goûte exactement ce à quoi je m’attendais.

cmacklin (815) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 26, 2016
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.

koleminer20 (2413) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - JUN 13, 2016
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.

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.

Draft at Rattle n Hum West with Linh, Brendan, Erica and Maggi. Pours a deep black/brown body with thick tan lacing. Super bitter roast and very ashy on the palate. Some sweet melted caramel and chocolate and lots of sweet sugary malts.

beerplace (710) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 14, 2016
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.

Panzuriel (1922) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - MAY 9, 2016
Location: 22 oz bottle obtained through Tavour Appearance: Almost black. Opaque. Finger of deeper mocha medium bubbles Nose: Deeply roasted malt. Caramel. Dark chocolate. Coffee. touch of vanilla. Taste: Caramel and sweet with a bit of alcohol evident. Dark chocolate rises towards the end of the sip and finishes with good dark bitters Body: Medium to full, smooth and satiny. Parting thoughts: A fantastic dark caramel beer with hints of salinity that keep it interesting.
