Dark brown in the tall Pilsner glass with a decent amount of off-white foam. Plenty of spritz on the tongue and a substantial mouthfeel. Not so much aroma beyond the grainy note.
Rather sweet and very malty with massively roasted grain. I wouldn't say that "salted caramel" immediately comes to mind, but there is a burnt sugar taste. The vast amounts of quite charred malt plus the hops give this a surprisingly bitter finish. Very dark in the back of the throat.
This is a different Stout but quite sippable. The flavoring is not overly strong. From the 22 oz bottle.

Poured into a Reuben's Brew snifter. Pours a very dak mahogany brown, appearing nearly opaque black in the glass, with a half finger dark khaki head with good retention and lacing. Classic sweet stout aroma of dark toasted malt, milk chocolate a hint of vanilla. Flavor of toasted malt, semi-sweet chocolate, toffee, finishing with toasted malt with light char and mild grassy hop bitterness that is intensified by the mild saltiness. Medium bodied. An interesting sweet stout that has its sweetness restrained by the mild saltiness. Nicely designed to balance the sweet/salt flavor as neither is dominant. Good choice of toasted malts with just a hint of charring in the finish. I expected a bit more caramel character; the profile seems closer to an export stout that has been sweetened a bit. Probably pushed my salt and sugar rations for the day through the roof, but it was an enjoyable way to go

Pours black with a very light mocha head. 2 fingers and dissipates into light lacing on the glass. Smells more of malt than anything else. First taste is cocoa, roasty malt, ending with a slightly salted caramel finish. Mouthfeel sis decent, coats cheeks but no film on the teeth. Texture is about the same as skin milk. Pretty tasty, if I want a sweet stout if probably grab this over the creme brûlée from southern tier. Side note, this is a collaboration with our favorite ice cream shoppe, so it got my hopes up from the start.

22 oz bottle bought from "Roth’s 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 heavy body and lowish carbonation..nice flavour profile. I liked this..unusual but i don't think its a stout..more a porter.

Another share from rudzud.
Pours a nice thicker rich creamy darker mocha colored just about 2 finger head fades fairly slowly with nice soapy lacing, pitch black color.
Nose mostly base black malts, roasted malts, light roast but def roasty aroma, little cocoa, little lactose like milky dry aroma, light salty note in the back end, mild coffee note with the roast, and touch of caramel.
Taste is similar to the nose, mostly just a base stout, little roasty, little cocoa, some lactose like milk choc, creamy, little char, black malts, etc. Just a hint of caramel, and very faint like smoked sea salt mostly on the back end. I get a little of the choc bar with sea salt flavor on the finish, fair sweetness. Caramel finally comes through nicely as i get through the darker malts. Finish is where the salt finally comes through, little more caramel, roast, char, cocoa, etc, lingering.
Mouth is med bod, decent carb.
Overall pretty boring, mostly just a plain stout, nothing really sticks out, just a touch of the caramel and salt, mostly boring.
