Tallgrass Explorer Series Sweet Tooth

Tallgrass Sweet Tooth, Salted Caramel Belgian-style dark ale brewed with salt and brown sugar. 9.2% alc. by vol. Brewed and canned by Tallgrass Brewing, Manhattan, Kansas.

This is okay. It's alright. It drinks down real good, and the booziness please me, but it lacks a certain finesse, a little grace, shall we say. It's alright, it ain't bad, but....eh....
