3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Poured from the bottle into a trumpet glass to drink. The beer had a ruby/copper-amber color, was mostly clear, with an average foamy white head with short retention but good lacing and cling. The aroma featured yeast, straw, and touches of grain and citrus hops, along with some light floral and spice notes. It had a fairly bitter and sour grainy flavor with bits of sour yeast and malt, and a presence of alcohol. It was a fairly well carbonation and fizzy beer, but was a bit dry and on the thin side.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Botella de 33 cl mayo de 2013. Esto casi entra de lleno en el mundo de las infusiones. Cerveza muy especiada con aromas muy marcados a hierbas silvestres. cuerpo ligero de color turbio. Muy peculiar como experimento, aunque eso de los cero ibu no convence demasiado a un amante del lupulo. Se podria repetir? ... Aún me lo estoy preguntando.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
(Bottle) Amber colour with frothy, beige head. Fruity, spicy nose with ginger, honey, heather, clove, ginger-bread cake, dark bread, orange peel and a touch of mint. Malty, spicy taste with notes of ginger, cardamom, clove, anise, rye bread, orange and a perfumy finish with low bitterness. Medium body, with a certain herbal sweetness. Strange beer, but quite interesting. More interesting than brilliant actually. But quite enjoyable.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle side by side
Pours a bit darker than flying dog no real foam
I like this label better
Smell is sweeter , and fuller than FD
Taste is bit sweeter ( sugar ) and slightly less weird than FD . So this is less ’ special ’ but in a way better . Not in the aftertaste , wich is to perfumed , but i think brewdog won , even though its close , they mostly won cause of the better atrwork , i guess ;-)

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Deep copper with a disappearing beige head. Smells of sweet Unfermented malt, lots of spices like ginger and cinnamon, with some perfume and caramel. Medium oily body with soft carbonation. Sweet with a spicy finish. Body of caramel with pepper and herbs. Lots of ginger in the taste with nice spices and a dry finish with a lingering liquorish. A decent work that hides the 7.5% well.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
330 ml bottle. Deep copper. Clear. Fizzy tall head that falls down quickly, like soda leaving only a little around the edges. Spicy herbal aroma. No hops in sight, but the beer is well balanced, though leaning towards the sweet. Rich malty flavours that are cut with a nice flavourful perfumey herbal note. Interesting experiment, but not really an IPA.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
0,33L bottle from Vinmonopolet. Dark golden/bronze colour, with almost no head. Aroma: Gingerbreaddough, spicy and malt. Taste: ginger (ale), spicy, caramel malt. If I had tasted this blind, I would have guessed it was a ginger ale. Too much ginger in this, and kinda....dull.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle from BarleyWine, Copenhagen - Gold pour small white head. Very herbal nuances in both taste and aroma, some dark fruit and woddyness. Certainly different to the norm, but didn’t get on well with this.
