WEIRD. Amber colored pour, light head. Ok at first the taste of caramel is interesting. But as you get into the beer further its artificial, plastic, flavors of caramel, peat, overripe fruit. ODD.

Bottle at West Coast Brew Fest 2014. Pours dark copper. Aroma is sort of winey malt. Med body. Flavor is rather vanilla roast malt. Smoke? Not for me. Not a lot of hop.Nice taste.

So, I kind of expected this to be awesome or a complete disaster, and was really...neither. Not much salt character, and just a little caramel, it seemed like a slightly above average Scotch Ale.

650 ml bottle purchased at One Stop Market. Clear brown with an amber hue without any head retention. Aroma is dead on caramel candy and a light hint of sea salt. <br
Flavor is just like the aroma. Thick syrupy caramel, with a salt water taffy chewy character. The carbonation is flat with a hint of salt showing in the finish with lingering caramel sweetness. The brewer does deliver what is advertised, interesting concept. Sweet for sure, makes a nice desert brew.

Odd saltiness distracts when it’s cooler but blended in better as it warmed. Plenty of caramel malt with some dark fruit.

What size bottle is this? 22oz? Pours a murky brown with very little white head. Nose is fairly muted, some caramel, some malt, a little candied orange, some raisin, a little prune. Flavors are similar, sweet, malt, caramel, a little toast, raisins, orange. Medium bodied. Forgettable.

Golden amber, sweet character...almost flavoured, i like the salty caramel notes, but it’s too sweet to drink too much.

Deep reddish copper pour with a small ivory ring for a head. Only a single spot left inside the glass. Nose is subtle and sugary with toffee, butterscotch, caramel malt, honey, macadamia nuts, and maple syrup. Flavor shows all of the before-mentioned redeeming qualities with the addition of crunchy, coarse sea salt. The sweet and briny quality is reminiscent of incredible ice cream. Great combination of flavor and surprised by the average rating.
