A salt caramel popcorn imperial ale. Bourbon and rum barrel aged, this 12.8% ale has complex and twisting flavours. Bitter caramel, wood, smoke, spice, treacle and vanilla are all present and intertwine against a smooth and lightly chewy mouthfeel. The salt caramel popcorn lends subtle hints of a smoky brininess.

andrew_drinks (234) - Luxembourg, LUXEMBOURG - MAR 6, 2015
Bottle from the cellar. Pours deep brown, no head at all. Aroma of marron glace, brown sugar, treacle. Very little carb - just a sparkle. Big caramel flavour between candied fruits, fudge and condensed milk - a hint of salt and some slight butterscoth. Barrel is evident with some vanilla and a touch of sugar and spice, along with some heat. With some carb this would have been up in the 4s.

rodbod (260) - SCOTLAND - JAN 4, 2015
bottle at home. More or less flat - just a faint spritz - and treacle black. Smells like boozy treacle plus cream sherry. Not complex on the palate, just a huge dollop of treacle. Maybe a wee bit salty, but definitely no popcorn. I was rather disappointed by this one. Yes, its a huge flavour, but there is very little variety.

Cunningham (7347) - Halden, NORWAY - DEC 28, 2014
A very dark liquid and almost no head. Powerful nice aroma with plums, raisins and dried fruits. Full body and a bit sweet. Really flat carbonation and a oily texture. Cousy flavor with figs, dates, raisins, plums and portvine.
