On tap at WOB. Black with brown highlights small off-white head. Aroma is salted caramel, medium body, medium carbonation, and pretty good lacing. Taste is caramel, salt, and cocoa. shadey (2148) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 10, 2017
12oz bottle. Black pour with a thin head of light tan froth. Aroma is sweet dark chocolate and a scent that I can oddly describe as salty. I think it's toffee and lightly toasted sugar. The body is smooth and sweet with some alcohol heat. Good. Ron (4095) - Rochester, New York, USA - OCT 9, 2017
Bottle. . Pours a deep black with a tan head. Smells of salt and caramel, citrus, and the blackwater series vanilla and creme smell. Taste is super salty upfront, followed by chocolate, caramel and vanilla, and some cake in the finish. edgallow (4362) - nashville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 7, 2017
22 oz bottle pours black with a brown head. Aroma of caramel, salt and chocolate. Taste is caramel, chocolate and a hint of the salt. poisoneddwarf (2620) - Coeur d’ Alene, Idaho, USA - OCT 3, 2017
12 oz bottle. Pours black with a thin tan head. Aroma is chocolate, caramel, candy corn...yum. Taste is unfortunately not as impressive, but it starts out sweet and quickly turns really bitter, something I wasn't expecting from a dessert beer. Notes of earthy, herbal hops, alcohol, cough drops, chocolate and caramel round out the flavors. Not getting any salt. Although I still think it's a good beer, I was really wishing for something on a par with their other dessert beers.

This is a good beer for special occasions. With the aroma of salted Carmel, it teases the senses with the anticipation of nation overly sweet. Thankfully, there is a balance with this beer to provide a fuller flavor by offsetting the sweet with a dark bitterness. This would be an excellent be to have with friends and family. My mind goes towards the cooler months when a drink can make a gathering into a cherished memory.

Draft to taster at The Pint Room. Looks good; a mildly translucent darker cola with beige head. Smells sweet and malty with notes of chocolate, caramel, and a bit of sea salt. Tastes like it smells, but saltier and less balanced, with a mildly boozy and warming full-bodied mouthfeel. Enjoyable, but smells better than it tastes.
