4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Rich malty flavour combined with great salted caramel dance over the tongue, hops are very mild and that is what makes this such a great beer. Well balanced with quite a distinct nose, not a lot of head and just the right amount of carbonation for a silky smooth mouthfeel.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at Alibi Room, Vancouver
Dark amber color with red hue; small creamy head. Some aroma of caramel and fudge. Good body structure, round mouthfeel, good flavor of dark caramel some fudge, light saltiness.
Salted butter caramel is a specialty of Brittany; indeed this beer reminds a bit of that caramel. Pleasant.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a deep copper hue topped with a quickly receding, foamy off-white head. Sweet, caramelized malts in the nose are offset by a unique brininess. Full-on Scotch ale character in the flavor, rich malts come through and gradually fade into a slightly salty and caramel toffee finish. Smooth and full-bodied on the palate, it is easy drinking and takes the style in a new direction.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a hazy dark copper colour with an off white average head dissipating to a medium sized ring around the glass. Aromas of salt water, sweet, caramel(Not to be confused with diacytal). Flavours are salty, sweet, caramel, roasted malt, some nuttiness, quite smooth being a 7.5 abv beer.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a cloudy reddish brown with a nice off white ring that leaves some good lacing. Aroma is a nice sweet caramel with a good amount of sea salt sourness. Taste is caramel & sea salt with some bready cereal. Very well balanced for 7.5 points. Love the addition of the caramel and salt Walter but staying true to the scotch style.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the Alibi Room, pours a beautiful orangey amber with a small beige head. Aroma of big syrupy caramel malts and not much else - very pleasant nose though. Flavour of salted caramel--very true to the name--, with corn syrup and caramel malts. ABV is well-hidden, and the flavour profile is well-constructed. Solid stuff.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tried this at a tasting today and had to take a bottle home for an in-depth review. Pours a nice deep ruby, two fingers of frothy off-white head that lingers. Aroma reminds me immediately of those awesome hard caramels in the orange wrappers they used to give out at Hallowe’en. Tasting - tastes a lot like those caramels, nice sweet malt, a tiny bit of breadiness, a hint of salt, though I don’t know if that is just because it says it on the bottle or there actually is a bit of salt in here. Nice rich mouthfeel, lingering taste. A very good offering.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Hazy copper, golden highlights, lacy off-white head. Sweet butterscotch malt, fruity nuances. A little sweet and simple, but not bad. No peat or smoke at all, but that’s a non-issue for me. I had this after Eel River Porter, and maybe that was a mistake because the sweetness really seemed amped up in this brew. I don’t know. it was good, but didn’t blow me away.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A beautiful scotch ale. The pour is a bright but murky brown with a bit of beige splotchy lacing. THe nose is well roasted, with caramel and toffee notes with light hops, a bit of peat smoke with a warming booze note. The taste is quite sweet and forward with a big caramel and malted scotch notes with some light hops. Well balanced and complex...really great!
