Salted Caramel Brown-ie Ale - Ben and Jerry's Review

One of Ben and Jerry's newest flavors is Salted Caramel Brown-ie Ale. Just in case you did not know, New Belgium Brewing Company and Ben and Jerry's together developed a beer late last year called Salted Caramel Brownie Brown Ale. I tried the beer in back in January and the beer was definitely something I never tasted before.

So, when I saw this flavor in ice cream form, I decided to try it.

Salted Caramel Brown-ie Ale ice cream consists of New Belgium Brown Ale Ice Cream with Fudge Brownie and Salted Caramel Swirls (don't worry - there is no alcohol in it).

I could definitely taste the "hoppy-ness" of the of the beer in the pint. The saltiness is not too overpowering; there is just a hint of it. There were numerous big chunks of fudge brownie in my pint and the texture of them was perfect. The caramel swirls were more like caramel "globs",

Overall, all of the flavors together made for an interesting tasting ice cream.

I would rate this one a 8/10. I prefer ice cream that has a little less of a salty flavor component to it but in this pint the salt does compliment all of the flavors well.

I bought 2 more flavors: "A Swirled of Difference" and "Cake my Day". I also found that my local Kroger has "Empower Mint" so I may pick up a pint of this as well. My local stores do have a good selection of flavors but I have tried most of these flavors already. I will have to try to find other stores with a more widespread selection.
