Was hoping for more of a "dessert in a glass" type of beer since the salted caramel is more of a complementary addition to the malt. Still, solid for what it is.

Rock Solid! Sweet nose, minimal head, lots of carbonation. The sweet caramel/malt flavours of this beer are greatly appreciated, because they are precisely what the label advertises. This is a fine beer, sessionable in spite of the high alcohol content. This tasting is part of my own personal supplement to the Beer Advent Calendar. Looking forward to further outstanding offerings!

Sampled on tap at BierCraft on Crambie street, Vancouver. Light brown to red brick color, with a salty, malty, seaside smell (without the fish). Taste of caramel and toffee, maybe slightly over carbonated, with a thick body. Hops are subtle and floral, in keeping with the style. Expected more of a kick considering the alcohol percentage, but goes down overall very (too?) smoothly. Would definitely have another one.

On tap up on the Roof at Whole Foods Gowanus Brooklyn. I enjoyed this beer very much. Rich flavor, is that malt or caramel? A nice combination of both to me. Salt? I did not get the salt but perhaps it was an essential part of the overall deep rich flavor profile. A not cloying sweetness too, that meant the flavor stayed away from rich deep stout or porter territory although the body did approach that of a stout.
