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.

olio (7954) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 9, 2014
375 ml bottle @ O’Hara’s.
Pours clear dark ruby red color with a small head. Very sweet and caramelly aroma, mild yeast and malt notes with toffee and brown sugar. Sugary sweet palate, caramel, dark fruits on the flavor. A delicacy off a beer. Sweet but with just the right amount of it, nice.

Flaska hemma - ser bra ut men blir skumkronan försvann snabbt. Djup bärnstensfärg. Doften är inte lika bra som 14. Smaken är underbar och brewdog fortsätter att leverera :) ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

(Bottle, 0.375 l - bottled on 05/01/14 - bottle #5400, at William K Kurvi, 20140502) The beer poured dark brown and clear. Its head was small and white. Aroma had vanilla, wood, caramel and mildly roasted malts. Palate was full bodied, warming and dry with low carbonation. Flavours were vanilla, sweetness, saltiness, wood, malts and low bitterness. Aftertaste had sweetness, saltiness, sweetned popcorn and low bitterness. A bottle of booze and excessive sweetness but a ticker must tick.

Bottle at home split with Sarah from Brewdog online. Aviscous chestnut brown / red pour with a fleeting tan head. Aroma is big oak, bourbon, rasin rum and vanilla. Pretty boozy in the nose. Some medeira cake. Flavour has an initial salty kiss, then sweet cakey, rum, dried fruits and considerable booze. Warming alcohol makes this a sipper. Full viscous body with low carbonation and sweet cakey finish. Dried fruits and run booze lingers. Tasty but not as good as other abstracts.

Lonick (790) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 11, 2014
@ The Lets do a Chris O tasting. Pours red/brown with no head what so ever. Wood, smoke and vanilla milkshake on the nose at first then a huge dollop of cherry. Fruitcake taste, sweet but tempered with the smoke and whisky from the barrel, great.

@ Bishop Molbergs, Brewdog Tap-Takeover. Kraftt arom, kanske lite russin. Fin fyllighet i smak och kropp, kraftig även där.

Garrold (2693) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 28, 2014
Tap at Brewdog, Sheffield. Dark, coppery brown. Halo of off white head. Bonfire toffee. Light smoke. Boozy, ashy, wood. Light, dried vine fruit. Taste is toffee sweet. Dryness creeps in for balance. Heavy, but somehow, not clarty, palate. Lick of salt at the end. Felt like I could have been sipping a liqueur. Nice.

Ktwse (2844) - SWEDEN - MAR 19, 2014
Pours deep burgundy with minimal off-white head. Aroma of, well, what? Booze, brown sugar, sweet wine, vanilla. Hard to define, but good! Almost like an american strong ale. Taste is a sweet explosion, very hard to pick out distinctive flavors, and almost too much but still nice. Body is rich and creamy. Warming, boozy finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
