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

Pours a dark brown colour with a medium white head which dissipated quickly. The aroma is oticeable caramel with a light salty notes i think goes together well. Flavour has a light sweetness of caramel then a bit of saltiness and a medium bitterness. Definitely better then i thought it was going to be not really a fan of sweet and salty but very enjoyable

650 ml bottle poured at home. Pours red with a beige head. Good lacing. Smells strongly of malt. Taste is sweet with a malty and toffee or caramel like flavour. It’s too sweet, almost cloying. For what it’s going for it works, but I personally don’t care too much for it.

UPDATED: MAY 21, 2016 So you think B.C. will do it now that D.V. has waxed his wife? Haven’t seen this in ages, not sure yet. HEad is okay on this thing, dark copper body, aroma of that bad dark lager you got from the guy in front of the liquor store when you were 16. When getting shitfaced was considered cultural, when the Railway Club was still a thing, instead of another Asian condo development. But that’s Vancouver and that’s why we drink, eh? This is like sucking down a liquified bag of Christmas chocolates from Purdy’s holee wow this is sweet, like Oakridge mall’s chocolate store and liquor store put all their stock in a blender and sold the result in bottles. Super cloying, maybe good for a dark dreary Vancouver winter night but this is harsh stuff that needs serious sipping to appreciate.
