What the brewer says

“It’s un­apolo­get­i­cally rich and creamy. Us­ing sea salt and caramel for a smooth, sweet, and bold dec­la­ra­tion of deca­dence.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Sweet choco­late with medium lac­tose and medium caramel. Caramel sweet­ness mixes with a light maplesyrup aroma. Caramel is com­plex, in­di­cat­ing a va­ri­ety of colors (de­grees of carameliza­tion).” Fla­vor: “Like a liq­uid caramel choco­late candy. Caramel dom­i­nates with the choco­late and roast play­ing an im­por­tant sup­port­ing role. The salt adds just a touch of com­plex­ity but el­e­vates the beer tremen­dously.” Over­all: “Ex­actly what you would ex­pect but even bet­ter bal­anced. It’s very well made and it does an ex­cel­lent job of ex­press­ing the ad­juncts and tast­ing like salted caramel added to a rich milk stout. Rich and creamy up front with a lin­ger­ing choco­late sweet­ness.”
