Southern Tier Salted Caramel has joined the brewery’s ongoing Blackwater Series. The series is known for beers like Creme Brûlée, and Choklot.
Salted Caramel takes a base imperial milk stout (brewed with lactose), Himalayan pink sea salt, and caramelized sugar to mimic the flavor of the candy. Much like other beers in the Blackwater Series, this dessert beer finishes at 10% alcohol by volume.
Recently, the brewery started moving these big stouts into 12 ounce bottles. Southern Tier Salted Caramel follows that 12 ounce, 4-pack trend.
How does it taste? The name pretty much says it all. Creme Brûlée smells and tastes like a boozy, beer incarnate of the dessert. Salted Caramel smells like caramel, and tastes like a sweet, roasted malt/caramel-y imperial stout with a touch of salt. Find yourself a big glass and some vanilla ice cream.
Availability: 12oz Bottles, Draft.
Release: June, 2016 (Bottles hitting markets in July)
