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.

Good choice for a cask. Some sweaty salty caramel. Nothing complicated, howoever break from the hops and the like.

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 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.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
(650ml bottle) Purchased at The Strath. Pours a medium white head atop a brown body. Nose of sweet caramel almost a toasty toffee aroma. Very smooth, and little detection of the alcohol - its a tad thin but easily drinkable. I don't know that this will age well but it doesn't likely matter as your lap it up immediately.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
650ml bottle pours brown in color with a finger and a half of off-white head that leaves some spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma is dominated by caramel. Taste is caramel malty sweetness with a mild citrus and herbal bitterness. Medium bodied with mild carbonation. An interesting interpretation of the style and definitely worth a try.
