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.

McWorta (1136) - 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.

375ml bottle, pours dark brown with a tiny head, sweet caramel, toffee malt texture, with fruitiness coming through with raisin, damson and blueberry. Little alcohol burn for the abv. Tastes like a very high quality barley wine, didn’t get much popcorn though! Excellent
