This is an aggressive beer. You probably wonít like it. It is quite doubtful that you have the taste or sophistication to appreciate an ale of this quality and depth.

This was the first craft beer I ever tried, which was about 3 years ago, and I remember thinking it tasted like tree bark. I couldnít get past a few sips from the bottle. Now that Iím older I feel as if I can fully appreciate this beast. Hoppy aroma with some pine scents. When you drink it, it starts nice and smooth and sweet with said pine notes and some minor lemony and grapefruity flavors as well, but then you begin to notice the carbonation and the flavor profile quickly shifts to bitter and remains that way for the finish. Itís this quick flavor shift quality that makes this beer really complex and interesting to me. I love the appearance of this beer. Hold it up to a light source. Itís blood red with a nice thick head. Great beer thatís fun to drink at parties.

Very acceptable aroma and a delightful deep rusty orange amber appearance. Carbonation is perfect and this one slides down the pipes quite easily. I was very pleased with this one and found myself wondering exactly why I hadnít had it before now....Proof my tastes are being honed and changing as well...upon researching, I found I had this one a year or so ago before I was rating here. I sure wouldnít have given it a fair shake then so it worked out well because itís def a brew that will be in my glass often after this tasty experience.

1pt bottle. Dark reddish brown with a beige head. The aroma is sweet caramel and syrup. The taste is heavy sweet, syrupy and medium bitter. Piny hops. Over rated and priced.

50cl can. Dark red brown color, thick head. Earthy hop aroma, toffee and dark caramel (kind of like a beefed up ESP?). More citrus and bitter hop resin in the flavor, nice maltiness. A great beer all around.

Mainuh_man (262) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 21, 2016
16 oz can. Pours deep mahogany with a huge tan head that lingers leaving huge lacing. Aroma of overripe fruit, sweet malt and a hint of cinammon. Fruity, sweet malt flavor, quickly giving way to long, herby and piney hops linger, leaving tongue a bit numb. Thick and oily mouthfeel with lots of warm alcohol linger. Overall, liking the balance. Not as aromatic, but good malt to hop profile.

500ml can from Brewdog shop. Big off white head, good retention, good lacing. Hazy dark amber body. Woody nose, raisin, brown sugar, a little honey. Flavour is sweet malt, biscuit, dark fruits, hop bitterness follows and lasts well. Great mouthfeel, creamy, oily and a little sticky. Like a big bastard supercharged brown ale.
