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, were 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.

On tap deep dark brown thin brief tan head. Smooth soft chocolate roast flavors. Just a touch of the caramel. A great sweet stout.

jrodooo5 (1584) - DOVER, Delaware, USA - FEB 18, 2017
Not quite as sweet as I hoped for - pun intended. Very nice black pour w/ a tan head that leaves plenty of lacing. The aroma is roasty w/ a bit of chocolate coming through. The taste is more bitter than anticipated. It has the nice chocolate syrup taste initially that gets slightly drowned out but roasted notes making it just average on the palate. Its still a quality beer nevertheless!

Visual: Pours ultra dark brown with a creamy 2cm frothy head, sticky lacing, a thin layer of fine retention, singular fast as well as clustered steady micro streams.

Nose: initially light plasticky; sweet roasted barley malt (lvl-4)-pungency

Attack: crisp-creamy-thicker, sweet roasted malt impression

Mid-palate: liquid light roasted barley malt, (lvl-5-sweetness), background balanced stout sour, cascading creaminess, subtle alcohol detection

Finish: slight dark caramel, traces of salt, chocolate, smooth and clean bittersweet light roast

Summary: Extremely drinkable with subtle caramel and even subtler salt and bittersweetness to augment the main stout body. Wished for some vanilla to put it over the top. Still great.

Rating #2438 - 2016.04.11 - Draught @alibiroom - Copper&Theory TT Dark brown pour with a non-existant head. Super caramel, cocoa nose, a ton of sweet and earthy malt notes. Taste is very rich in chocolate, with a sweeter than expected finish. Excellent.

Not to impressive until we added ice cream to the beer. Vanilla ice cream makes it extremely delicious. Cheers! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
