We put the kettle on for a long boil and this Scottish wee heavy is what we got. Rich Caramel is complemented by sea salt for a complex intense flavour. Another? Aye

22oz bottle pours out a hazy caramel color topped with a small sand head. Nose heavy caramel sweetness vanilla and a nice bread malt. Taste is as the nose with the caramel sweetness leading the way along with a nice malt to round out the sweetness.

suprchunk (2313) - Crestview, Florida, USA - SEP 3, 2014
Caramel colored pour. Small off white head. No lacing. Big aroma of caramel drowning anything else out. Taste is tons of Caramel with a slight note of malt. It is like they only wanted caramel.

Bottle into a snifter. Caramel in color, very soft haze. A soft layer of sandy tan. Red grapes, tangy and wine like. Subtle caramel, biscuits. Salty or just barely sour. I can’t quite tell which. Noticeable alcohol flavor. Not caramel, per se. A little tangy, almost berry-like up front. Hint of toffee. A touch of toasty biscuits and, yes, salty caramel at the finish. Clean, and a little too light for what it is. Caramel, toffee, berries, booze. A touch of smoke. Grape juice. Better as it warms. Sweeter, toastier. Less a salty Scotsman, more a fruity Frenchman. Not that that’s such a terrible thing.

doublebock (509) - California, USA - SEP 1, 2014
Appearance; Cloudy amber with thin white head Aroma: Bold caramel and malt aromas Taste: Sweet malted and flavor with toffee and hazelnut Overall: This beer definitely lives up to its name with a truly salty caramel flavor. Very similar to a typical double bock.

DYCSoccer17 (3345) - Woodland, California, USA - AUG 10, 2014
Bottle purchased at BevMo Midtown Sacramento. The aroma on this is very sweet and sugary with tons of caramel and a light buttery diacetyl. Overly sweet. Transparent amber body with a smallish, off-white head present. Kind of light in color. Starts with a sweet, sugary, cloying buttery and toffee flavoring. Light-bodied. More sweetness late. This is a sugar bomb, and just not very good at all.

Luvystypotables (753) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - AUG 4, 2014
Sweet malt aroma, reddish brown colour, with an off white transient head. An interesting complex taste of malt, caramel and salt. Creamy feel, and sweet and salty palate.

HourGlass13 (111) - North Carolina, USA - AUG 3, 2014
Pours a nice warm amber color, with a light tan head. Aroma is caramel. The taste is very malty with caramel dominating throughout, and a salty note added. Very sweet, very drinkable. A work of art.
