330ml bottle from Archive Beer Boutique. A mighty fine looking drop with a big thick creamy looking head of sandy coloured foam. Hazy dirty amber colour with vanilla, toffee and caramel aromas.light in the mouth but has a big kick to it, a little deceiving I think. Smooth with a whiskey like aftertaste.

On tap at Brewdog Shoreditch. It pours dark ruby almost brown with a nice off white head. Quite lasting foam. Aroma is sweet and peaty with some hop hints, wood and roasted malts. Taste is initially sweet than turns to roasty smoky and bitter. Very nice balance here. Body is quite full with good carbonation. Overall, delicious.

2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle, 12C. Amber, lots of chunks, an inch of off-white head. Aroma of toffee, dried peaches and mangoes, prunes, peat.. Peaty and sweet with toffee, dried stone and tropical fruits, soon sidetracked by bitterness. Herbal notes and unintegrated alcohol at the end. Smells OK, but then doesn’t mesh at all. Desultory.
