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 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.

McWorta (1516) - LUXEMBOURG - MAY 26, 2014
Deep mahagony coloured beer with a very fast fading caramel coloured fine head. On the nose aromas of caramelised dates, sugared red fruits and treacle develop. Also offers hints of wet leather, red wine, wood and is pretty complex overall. The taste is sweet with a notch of saltiness which makes it very pleasant with a bold slickness on the palate. NMore flavours of treacle, sweet red grapes and dates develop. Full bodied with a sweet long lasting well balanced lingering finish.
