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

Sample 1/16/16 (Binnys Downers Grove)-Pours copper with a small head. Aroma of caramel, salt, and malt. Taste of the same with a bunch more caramel and salt. This medium to full bodied brew is quite tasty.

Aurelius (5094) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JAN 9, 2016
Bad can. Clear, dark tea color with a big fluffy khaki head. Sweet, peaty, fruity aroma with some acidity and toffee. Sweet, fruity, plummy, mossy, a bit boozy. Faint chocolaty notes. Finishes with a growing sweetness and a building toffee/burnt sugar body. ABC Liquors, Bull Run.

TimE (5095) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JAN 3, 2016
light brown color. Very sweet malty. The mouth has a whallop of caramel, cherries and lacks pettiness. Not a scotch ale. With some cherries in the finish. Ok but directionless

12 oz can. Deep amber colored body with excellent clarity and a good head. Sweet aroma features caramel and vanilla. The flavor follows. sweet but not cloying. Medium carbonation with near medium body. Overall: very drinkable. Should be an excellent dessert beer. /recommended.

hershiser2 (2181) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - DEC 17, 2015
Bomber from whole foods. Pours brown with a small head. Heavy aroma of bourbon and caramel. Taste is... Oh wow salted caramel, light metal, light leafiness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

sulawang (1053) - British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 8, 2015
Visual: Pours cinnamon brown with a very small head, almost non-existant layer of ringed retention, a few small bubbles here and there. Nose: light booze, brown sugar caramel malts. (lvl-6)-pungency Attack: immediate (lvl-9)-sweetness up front, crisp, thicker viscosity Mid-palate: continual sugars, tangy bite, (MAIN) caramel malts, toasted barley, alcohol bitterness Finish: malty sweet finish, subtle bitterness. Summary: Surprisingly sweet, a decent attempt at something unique but not getting much of the salt for the ’salted caramel’. A bit above average.

northropfrye (3299) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - NOV 20, 2015
Light copper body white head. Not much retention. Vanilla sweet malt aroma and a bit of booze. Taste is quite sweet semi-boozy. Like a sweeter innis and gunn. Not bad.

cards04 (2686) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - NOV 20, 2015
A tasty treat. Pours a dark honey colour. Aromas of caramel, vanilla and banana. The booze keeps it from being cloying. Tastes like it smells. Yum.
