COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

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.

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.

375ml bottle from Brewdog shop. No visible head or lacing. Body is clear dark brown. Nose is caramel, popcorn, vanilla, wood. Flavour is creamy caramel, bourbon, rum, some alcohol burn. A little spice on the finish, some treacle. Very smooth mouthfeel, no carbonation, sticky and a bit chewy. So much going on here, a bit jarring at times but then it melds together. Quite a weird beer but a good one to savour.

Backlog rating. Keg at BD Shoreditch, London. It pours a rich amber color with a small tan head. Aroma is sweet and rich in caramel and toffee notes, light bitter and bread, light banana and liquor. Taste has some more sweet toffee notes, vanilla, run, bread and cocoa. Medium to full bodied with ok carbonation. Overall, interesting but sweet
