3.84/5 rDev -1.8%
Poured a brown body with good head and lace with an aroma that is a little salty and dry but caramel, toffee and roasted malts come out. Taste is more sweet than aroma as sweet caramel seems to coat my tongue (the salt aspect is there I guess, but one could also describe it as a hint of toffee or bitter chocolate) and there's a smoothness to this beer as it's not light-bodied but goes down light-bodied all right. Not a complex beer but one that interests me as I've not had too many sweet beers like this. Not for everyone but I enjoyed my bottle.

Poured from the bottle into a Wee Heavy glass.
A real nice red copper and quite clear body color. Head forms about two fingers tan and a little soapy tall but settles slowly to one finger with some staying power. Nice glowing and shiny appearance quite solid.
Very nice simple toffee and caramel nose. Hints of soft maple syrup quality and chewy milked graham crackers also. Quite nice.
Palate is a little bit light on flavor. Fleeting mid palate of wet toffee. Very thin watery body with not much coating or hints of malt thickness. Some soda like carbonation, and sugar candied cola like finishing power. Slightly fizzy also.
Missing a lot of malt and toffee richness and thickness here. Says added with sea salt and caramel. Even that really didn't seem to help in the flavor department. It is however a much lighter scotch ale and is easy drinking, but nothing really exciting in the realm of this style which is normally rich and large.

My first stab at a Parallel 49 beer from BC.Pours a rich clear deep bronze with a thinner but well sustained slight off white head atop.There is alot of malty things going on in the nose,first off I pick up some caramel toffee and brown sugar, with a hint of butterscotch and whiskey,yeah you can tell it's gonna be sweet but it's inviting.It is sweet,vanilla and caramel are predominant,like a sweet caramel chew,the saltiness is starting to come into play after I swallow in the back of the mouth.This very well could be the best dessert pairing beer I have come across,even better than any chocolate stout.Different in a good way.

On draft at Alibi Room, Vancouver.
Glowing oxblood with white trailers.
Smoke, maple + big caramel nose - sweet + enchanting.
Red berry, pear cake, and - sure enough - salty caramel before a leafy end.
Candy apple finish and dry linger.
Medium, chewy, round.
Hits the concept but is still a real Scot. Way drinkable; never cloys. Went back for more, which doesn't happen much in a pub with such a selection.
Whatever about adherence to style or gimmicky flavors, this is just darn tasty!

A - a clear deep redwood hue, half finger of head fizzled to a few random islands
S - big nutty and caramel aromas up front, some burnt sugars and woody earthiness
T - the salted caramel feature some through very nicely right away, supported by an almond nutty background with earthy hops and a woody linger, very tasty indeed
M - a sticky sweet syrupy feel, fairly full throughout with a tongue coating quality
O - the scotch ale aspect is a little overwhelmed here but the salted caramel aspect is so tasty that all is forgiven, this is a must try
