Notes & Commercial Description:

Building upon a Scottish "Wee Heavy", this unique beer was developed to provide a strong caramel malt flavour with enough salt to give it a bit of a bite. Stronger in alcohol, this beer starts off sweet but remains fairly light to drink.

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.

Delicious caramel, salt. Thick, full mouth-feel. Warming.

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.
