Bottle share. This beer is exactly as described on the bottle. Heavy nose of caramel and salt. Taste is heavy caramel with sea salt cutting off/balancing the flavour. It's a fun beer.

Excellent beer, caramel flavour all over... pretty much pure scotch ale with lots of sweetness etc. Very mild salty backbone on the tongue.

650ml bottle to english pint, beer is a transparent dark red with an off white thin head. Aroma is faint but lots of candy, caramel, butterscotch, but no hint of booze. Taste is awesome...sweet and salty, kinda like eating chocolate covered pretzels with a bittersweet finish like licorice. Not much hop presence but the malt more than makes up for it. Palate is warming, full bodied, co2 medium, balanced well. Overall...very good beer, lots of character and a lot of fun to drink.

UPDATED: NOV 4, 2013 In bottle ... interesting. Aroma of caramel and sweetness, almost like creme brule. Pours nice brown/dunkel color. Taste is interesting/complex with light body, some creaminess and a very subtle salt note. UPDATED - Nov. 3 - tried again .. definitely let it warm to the reco’d temperature ... much, much better. Nice cocoa and caramel notes with a finish of salt .. very nice .. I did buy again

Slightly muted but deep malty aroma. Looks great in the glass (but its dark here). Nice flavorful malts used in this beer. Feels a bit weird in the mouth, may be the alcohol coming through. Finishes pretty good. Mmmm

Thanks to Reimer for this. Pours dirty brown with a small quickly disappearing white top. Aroma is toffee and caramel. Taste is sweet caramel and fizzy carbonation with some wood.

A reddish brown scotch ale with a thin mocha head. In aroma, strong sweet cherry malt with candy overtones and fruity pulp. In mouth, a sweet fruity malt with light corky notes, a bit light. Cask Days 2013.

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

On tap at The Alibi Room in Gastown. A deep rich amber color, with a bit of whitish head. The caramel is up front, but nicely balanced with more complex flavours, which I can’t discern at the moment. Nice.
