Pours a clear copper with little to no head remaining.

Nose has caramel and malt.

Taste follows the nose but is not sickly sweet.

Great beer.

Very nice variation on the style. Caramel up front but with the sea salt lingering and countering the sweetness. Nicely done.

Poured into an IPA glass.

Look: The body is a hazy amber, the head is a cream cold. Head retention is okay -- left with a film and lots of bubbles around the edge of the glass. Very light lacing, and I mean VERY light.

Aroma: Sea salt, pretzels, roasted nuts, caramel.

Taste: Very sweet caramel up front, but the salt comes in with a punch, and it tastes excellent. Some booze in the finish, but otherwise a salty caramel pretzel kind of feel.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied.

Overall: This is so tasty. Could be a good dessert beer, but a bomber anytime is perfect. I love the salt and caramel, perfect amount of each.

Was hoping for more of a "dessert in a glass" type of beer since the salted caramel is more of a complementary addition to the malt. Still, solid for what it is.

Rock Solid! Sweet nose, minimal head, lots of carbonation. The sweet caramel/malt flavours of this beer are greatly appreciated, because they are precisely what the label advertises. This is a fine beer, sessionable in spite of the high alcohol content. This tasting is part of my own personal supplement to the Beer Advent Calendar. Looking forward to further outstanding offerings!

Sampled on tap at BierCraft on Crambie street, Vancouver. Light brown to red brick color, with a salty, malty, seaside smell (without the fish). Taste of caramel and toffee, maybe slightly over carbonated, with a thick body. Hops are subtle and floral, in keeping with the style. Expected more of a kick considering the alcohol percentage, but goes down overall very (too?) smoothly. Would definitely have another one.
