New Belgium and Ben & Jerry's Salted Caramel Brownie Brown Ale

This 6.25% ABV ale brewed with cocoa is a collaboration with Ben & Jerry's ice cream from New Belgium Brewing of Fort Collins, Colorado. 

The beer pours a very dark brown and dark ruby, appearing black. There is a small head of light tan foam. The aroma is dark roasted malt, sweet, yet dry, lots of chocolate, caramel and nut. The taste follows the aromas, hitting the same notes, tasting exactly like it's name. The beer drinks easy, soft, and smooth, tasting like a liquid dessert. This is really good, the dry, salted, nuttiness makes it a “dessert” beer that I could drink more than one of in a night. I was afraid this would taste gimmicky, but it was much better than I expected.
