can @ Calandro’s / Baton Rouge LA --- Aroma of caramel malt. Hazy amber brown, beige head that sticks at a thick cover, hanging lace strands. Taste is malt, medium fizz, light hops, and then a gradual move toward sweet caramel as it moves through a long finish. Slight dip back to bitter at the very end. Maybe a little too sweet, but complex and easy to drink. cmacklin (1371) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 21, 2017
650ml bottle. Pours a clear dark amber with red hue and a small, creamy, short lived, beige head that leaves spotty lacing. Sweet aroma of caramel malt, toffee and vanilla. Sweet flavour of caramel malt, toffee, butterscotch, vanilla, light roast, chocolate and a hint of salt in a dry finish. Medium body with a sticky texture and soft carbonation. Nice. dmac (6573) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - DEC 1, 2016
12oz can from Xroads. Poured a clear mahogany body under a dense super light beige creamy head. Aroma is meh....notes of brown paper bag, dry caramel, sea salt, grainy chocolate malts. Flavor is all that plus earth, peat and a touch of older rotten banana. Medium body at best with stingy carbonation and a quicker fading aftertaste. floydslip (428) - Washington DC, USA - OCT 29, 2016
Decent looking caramel colored beer with a thin tan head. Sweet nose of salted caramel, vanilla, and toffee--it smells like candy. Flavor is semi-sweet, but not over-powering, with salted caramel, toffee, and butterscotch finished with a hint of smoky bitterness. Definitely enjoyable brown ale.

Can from Taniguchi. A sea salted caramel version of a scotch ale that fills my thistle glass with amber brown goodness. The light beige heads doesn’t linger but does leave a ring of film behind. The aroma is syrupy caramel, bread pudding and salt.
Medium to full bodied with a sharp burnt toffee caramel then a mouth-smacking salt edge melding into chocolate notes. This pretty much nails salted caramel with charred/burnt accents but it feels like it’s a touch cloying or artificial. Yep, I just checked the label and the salt is real but the caramel flavor is fake... well from some kind of concentrate. Shame but it’s still a pretty good brew. It definitely reminds me of a bunch of other of these "food" type brews but I can’t recall which one, maybe one of those Rogue voodoo donuts ones?

Tap at Wiz. Aroma is big caramel. But not overly sweet. Bit of cocoa powder. Taste is good. Caramel of course, can’t quite get the saltiness, but there’s definitely a little bite to it. Nice.

Pours brown with a compact head; aromas of burnt caramel; medium bodied with a sweet palate. ryanhunter_4 (379) - Strathmore, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 12, 2016
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. oldrtybastrd (5228) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - JUN 22, 2016
Pours a red/brown. Aromas of dark roasted malt and fruity aroma sweet, malty flavors with a hint of smoke. Finishes with a touch of dry bite. jamestulloch (4415) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 30, 2016
Can from The Beerhive. Clear amber body with a thin off-white head. Steady carbonation. Faint lacing. Aroma of salted caramel, sugary tea and toffee. Flavour of stewed apple, brown sugar and fig. Thin to medium body with a slick texture. Lively fizz. Very sweet and flavoursome.
