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.

Reid (2504) - Salem, Oregon, USA - MAR 29, 2014
22 oz bottle bought from "Roths Sunnyslope Market" in S.Salem. $5.99 Pours a dark brown colour with a large light tan head.. Aromas of caramel,toffee,slightly seaish, light roast coffee bean..some vanilla wafts by. Taste is again semi-sweet coffee, caramel,salt and slightly toasty. Palate is just fine..medium to gheavy body and lowish carbonation..nice flavour profile. I liked this..unusual but i dont think its a stout..more a porter.

Thechasm442 (1002) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 29, 2017
Bomber. Super dark brown with a thick mocha head that leaves nice lacing. Aroma is roasty with cocoa, chocolate, caramel, and a little vanilla. Taste is cocoa, chocolate, and dark roasted malts. Caramel creeps in and finishes with some vanilla. Average thickness and lingering cocoa bitterness with caramel in the finish. Really nice.

650 ml bottled 02/15/2017. Black with a thin disc of foam. Aroma is caramel cola, salt and coffee. Flavor is salty roasted nut, dark bread, caramel and cocoa. Finish has some ash and green herb. Medium body has too much fizz yet somehow manages to be sticky.

Draft at Brawleys. Dark brown color tan head. Dark chocolate and burnt caramel aroma. Taste is earthier and roastier than I anticipated and not as sweet. Light body, easy drinking. Well done.

stantheman (1016) - British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 27, 2017
On tap at St Augustines in Vancouver. A very dark beer with a moderate tan head and a malted nose. Wow, this is good! Big sweet caramel upfront. Very smooth. No hop detected. Very nice. 3.9

Appearance: clear deep ruby brown with one fat finger of fluffy beige head, moderate retention and patchy lacing. (4/5) Aroma: chocolate, roasty dark malt, caramel, lactose. (6/10) Taste: moderate-high sweet, moderate bitter, light salt. (7/10) Palate: medium-full body, soft carbonation, dry slightly briny mild bitter warming finish. (3/5) I was hoping for a little more little more dessert-in-a-glass, but not bad. Body is a decent weight for the style, and in fact would be quite capable of supporting more emphatic salted caramel. A bit more bombast would go a long way here. (14/20)

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