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.

375ml bottle, gråsälstasting #4. Near black, thin white head. Woody, toffeish, sweet dark fruity alcohol infused aroma. Flavor has dark fruits, candy notes (popcorn?), booze. Long finish, sweet stuff. Quite enjoyable but boozy.

stefannilssons (1580) - SWEDEN - JUN 20, 2014
Det här var riktigt fint och välsmakande, smaken bar toner av druva, trä, vanilj och lakrits. Kroppen var stabil till tusen och balansen väl avvägd.

Almost feels like a digestive liquor, quite boozy with plenty of salty caramel and a buttery texture. Works fine but definitely wouldn’t drink it in high volumes.

_angst_ (4499) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUN 1, 2014
Bottle bought @ Systembolaget. Pours dark amber with a small fizzy brownish beige head that quickly dissipates without leaving any trace on the glass. Smell is sweet and malty with caramel, charred wood, burning bourbon and rum, vanilla fudge, toffee, coconut shaving golden syrup, hay, soil and salt water taffy. Taste is sweet, tiny bitter, salty and malty with caramel, toffee, vanilla fudge, charred wood, raisins, bourbon, toasted coconut, caramelized almonds, hay, moist soil, peppery burning rum, sweet soy sauce, golden syrup and maple syrup. Mouthfeel is round, chewy, boozy, tiny viscous and medium to full bodied. Finish is sweet, tiny bitter, salty and malty with caramel, toffee, maple syrup, charred wood, raisins in rum, vanilla fudge, coconut shavings and bourbon. A very pleasant surprise... Sweet, heavily barrel aged, intriguingly salty sipper.
