A: Caramel colour with an off-white head, thin ring of retention shows a bit of leg.

S: Light caramel and toffee sweetness in the aroma, golden raisins, nice fruity esters (figs, pear).

T: Great caramel flavour, slight saltyness in the aftertaste, though I'm not sure I'd pick it out if I didn't know it was there. Pleasant fruitiness, hints of cocoa and nuts. Slight earthy mineral. Some good bitterness to back up the sweetness. Slight warmth from the alcohol, though I wouldn't have thought it was this strong.

M: Light residual sweetness with a slightly drying finish.

O: Really well put-together novelty ale... it's not something I'd drink a lot of, but I'd be really happy to see this every season.

Wow, this beer smells like a Salted Caramel Latte from Starbucks! This is one of those beers that is all about the added flavour, not about the beer. What I mean is, there is pretty much zero beer flavour here. The taste is entirely dominated by an out-of-this-world extremely delicious caramel flavour, with a slightly salted aftertaste. The caramel is rich and thick, with hints of maple, brown sugar, and plum. The finish is mostly where I taste the salt, and it pairs perfectly with the caramel. I suppose what is making me rave about this beer is the intensity of the flavour. I was expecting a scotch ale with hints of salty caramel, but really this is salty caramel with a hint of scotch ale: beer and dessert all wrapped up in one great bottle!

On tap up on the Roof at Whole Foods Gowanus Brooklyn. I enjoyed this beer very much. Rich flavor, is that malt or caramel? A nice combination of both to me. Salt? I did not get the salt but perhaps it was an essential part of the overall deep rich flavor profile. A not cloying sweetness too, that meant the flavor stayed away from rich deep stout or porter territory although the body did approach that of a stout.
