Schlafly Salted Caramel Stout

What the brewers say

“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 maple- syrup 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.”
