A salt caramel popcorn imperial ale. Bourbon and rum barrel aged, this 12.8% ale has complex and twisting flavours. Bitter caramel, wood, smoke, spice, treacle and vanilla are all present and intertwine against a smooth and lightly chewy mouthfeel. The salt caramel popcorn lends subtle hints of a smoky brininess.

Theydon_Bois (16850) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - JUL 28, 2016
Bottle at home, 28/07/16, bottle #2089/8250. Extremely dark mahogany brown with little in the way of a covering. Nose is dark fruit rinds, light spice, brown sugar, toffee, red berry fruits, light boost tuneage. Taste comprises sweet malts, spice, caramel, red berry esters, toasted brown sugar, light molasses, subtle barrel, light bourbon streak. Full body, fine carbonation, semi drying close with a sweet closure and rising alchol level. Ok ... a little boosty and perhaps past its best some 30 months post bottling. Had worse but would not rush back for this juan.

OminouSC2 (447) - SWEDEN - JUL 4, 2016
Sweet, complex aroma. Caramel, syrup, raisins?, coconut? I can’t really put my finger on it. Taste is horrible. Sweet and salty caramel, just a mess. Really not for me.

Bottle at home, last one. Thought it’d go quite well with a re-watch of No Country for old men. Pours pretty dark. Promt dissipating head. Huge aroma of caramel creamy malty booziness. Decent carbonation though it looks flat with zero lacing. Lovely colourful flavours - salty caramel toffee. Sweet and viscous. Rich. Quite delicious.

Gurthnar (4986) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - JAN 13, 2016
Bottle at our elite tasting. From my Secret Santa Beersiveknown. Thanks! Very rich and very intense. Also wonderfully balanced. Lots of coconut both in aroma and flavour. The high bitterness and light citrusy hops flavour provide ample background for lots of other stuff going on. Caramel, toffee, biscuity. Saltiness appears late in the finish. Alcohol warming and pleasant, never sharp. Really great beer, thanks Steve.
