3.64/5  rDev -2.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

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.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Bottle opened on 2.11.14

A - Pours a dark brown with a nice large dark tan head with great retention.

S - Lots of roasted malts, chocolate, pretty mild.

T - Salty, mild chocolate, a bit of caramel and salt in the finish.

D - Good carbonation with a medium body.

O - Sounds amazing, but misses a bit on the caramel flavors.

3.59/5  rDev -4.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a bomber into a Deschutes Teku glass.

A: Dark, Dark, brown...almost black. Nice fluffy, light khaki head. Slow dissipating, and nice lacing.

S: really disappointed in the nose of this beer. Aroma of typical dark malt, a slight bit of cocoa. Was expecting sweeter aromas.

T: dark, roasty malts. slight bittersweet chocolate and coffee flavors. Caramel is on the back end, but lacking. Saltiness is weak, but detectable on the finish.

M: pretty thin for a stout, more of a porter mouthfeel. Carbonation is light.

O: not a bad beer, just dissapoonted. Was expecting the advertised flavors to be stronger. $6/bomber isn't bad. Won't seek this out again, though.

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.

Split with JLindros.

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a very nice dark brown hue with a two finger mocha head that leaves light lacing.

S - Aromas of a basic genetic stout notes, faint chocolate, super faint caramel and light salt.

T - Taste is more of that genetic stout tastes, chocolate malts, light roast, some light caramel towards the finish along with subtle sweetness. Pretty average.

M - Mouthfeel is nicely drinkable, lightly smooth.

O - Overall this beer was just average. Really feel flat on the promise of salted caramel.
