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

DYCSoccer17 (3306) - Woodland, California, USA - AUG 10, 2014
Bottle purchased at BevMo Midtown Sacramento. The aroma on this is very sweet and sugary with tons of caramel and a light buttery diacetyl. Overly sweet. Transparent amber body with a smallish, off-white head present. Kind of light in color. Starts with a sweet, sugary, cloying buttery and toffee flavoring. Light-bodied. More sweetness late. This is a sugar bomb, and just not very good at all.

Luvystypotables (614) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - AUG 4, 2014
Sweet malt aroma, reddish brown colour, with an off white transient head. An interesting complex taste of malt, caramel and salt. Creamy feel, and sweet and salty palate.

HourGlass13 (50) - North Carolina, USA - AUG 3, 2014
Pours a nice warm amber color, with a light tan head. Aroma is caramel. The taste is very malty with caramel dominating throughout, and a salty note added. Very sweet, very drinkable. A work of art.

ryecatcher (766) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 22, 2014
Bomber. Pours a medium chestnut brown, ample off-white head, decent retention and lacing. Nose is pumpernickel toast and a generous helping of maltiness. Mouth is huge burnt caramelly toffee malt with some dried dates and figs along for the ride, finishes drier than it begins with a hint of salt at the finish. Slightly above average. O Canada.

gendv138 (1192) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - JUL 22, 2014
22 oz bottle poured into a Belgian snifter. Bottle courtesy of Richard and Better Beer Authority for a live Blind Taste Test. Clear amber/copper color with a small amount of off-white to slightly yellowish head. Aromas of caramel, toffee, dark fruit. Tastes of dark fruit, caramel, toffee, candied and brown sugar. Medium body with a dry finish. Medium carbonation, syrupy mouthfeel. Fairly smooth. Having it blind I was guessing a barleywine around 7-8%.

freekyp (1483) - Thomasville, North Carolina, USA - JUL 14, 2014
Nice smoked malt earthy aroma. Pours light brown with a minimal ring of tan head. Big malty flavors dominate but are tempered by some British hops bitterness. Ends mellow, smoky and long.

tmoreau (2369) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - JUL 8, 2014
Shared bomber, poured to snifters, showing a hazed, copper color, with a modest layer of off white head foam, and dots & dashes of lacing. The aroma was light grain, malt, and extremely sweet, and caramelized. A very dessert-like nose. A little less than medium bodied, with soft carbonation, the taste offered low bitterness, hints of brine & peat toward the finish, and hidden alcohol. Not wee-heavy, but a tasty treat.
