A 750ml bottle with no clear bottled on or best before date. Poured into a MBCC 2018 stemmed tasting glass.

Appearance: Black in colour with only a very thin mocha brown head that stuck around throughout while leaving some nice lacing.

Aroma: Chocolate, caramel and vanilla dominate with hints of coconut and roastiness. A bit like chocolate ice cream with chocolate sauce.

Taste: Chocolate and sea salt are strong, cacao, vanilla, lightly bitter dark chocolate, and hints of coconut, caramel and alcohol poking through.

Mouthfeel: Extremely creamy, full bodied, with low carbonation.

Overall: I thought that the sea salt was too strong. Normally I love caramel salted chocolate, but in this case, the strong sea salt combined with the booze and maybe even the light bitterness just didn’t work together as well as it could have for me.

This one pours with a dark and deep black hue, with a small head, and not much lacing.

This smells surprisingly salty- I figured the sea salt would be an afterthought. There's lots of creamy milk chocolate and bittersweet caramel on the nose. Unfortunately, I don't get any coconut on the nose.

The taste also has no coconut, which is disappointing. The sea salt and caramel are definitely the dominant, and kind of obscure whatever the (very sweet) base beer should taste like. The sea salt does help dry the beer out a bit. There's lots of chocolate, too, but I'm not sure if that's the flavor addition or it's just a particularly chocolatey base stout.

This is medium bodied, a little syrupy, and pretty creamy, with a lower level of carbonation.

This is pretty solid, but I don't think the base beer is strong enough on it's own.
