magdalar (513) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - MAY 18, 2012
Bottle. Pours a very dark brown, with a small dissipating head. Smells strongly of rum, roasted malt, caramel and some alcohol. Tastes of a heavy sweetness, medium bitterness, a warming alcohol, and very much of sweet rum. Medium-full bodied, light carbonation, oily texture. Finishes with a warming and somewhat biting alcohol. Tasty.

Sigmund (5319) - Tau, NORWAY - MAY 17, 2012
330 ml bottle in cardboard box, Cardinal Pub & Bar. ABV is 11.5%. Very dark brown colour, nearly black, mahogany in the highlights. Moderate beige head. Strong and impressive aroma of rum barrel (= oak, dark rum, vanilla). Sweet and very malty flavour, again with strong notes of rum barrel, also molasses, caramel, raisins, chocolate and mild coffee. The domination of the rum barrel is no doubt intentional, but as BrewDog are normally not afraid to use hops (to say the least), I think they could have used some more of them here. But by all means, this is a lovely beer, when you want to satisfy your sweet tooth.

Archibaldo de la Cruz (1122) - FINLAND - MAY 16, 2012
Bottle. Dark brown color with a small tan head. Rum, raisins and malt in the aroma. Taste is rum, sweet malt, caramel and chocolate. Some bitterness in the finish. Medium-bodied. A bit unbalanced.

KyotoLefty (6737) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAY 14, 2012
Bottle shared by Ajen. Nice, pretty head. Red tints in very dark brown beer. Nose of raisins and rum; a bit simple. Soft, sweet, fruity chocolate and fruit flavor, raisins, wood, rum, cola. Nice stuff, lots of rum.

davidmg (49) - SPAIN - MAY 13, 2012
Aroma a roasted malts y a alcohol, como si fuera un destilado. sabor recuerda a los vinos dulces del sur de españa con un final seco y amargo. De carbonatacion baja con un final alcoholico y a madera.

Lagunitasfan (1321) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 12, 2012
This was a special gift of an Irish buddy returning from a visit with his friend who is a brewer in Scotland. Enjoyed at a drunken adult prom party. Moderately dark with bed brown tints. Nose is sweet malt with hints of cherry tart. Booze and vanilla and tart. Taste is big sweet malty tart with light fuzzy booze and dark fruit. Yeast and coffee and vanilla and fuzzy booze. Don’t understand the low ratings. Really really good brew.

pilsnerrogge (2537) - Finspång, SWEDEN - MAY 11, 2012
Dark brown colour, small head. Very sweet aroma of dark rum, brown sugar and raisins. Very sweet flavour of dark rum and alcohol. Too much rum and too little porter.

_angst_ (3058) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAY 9, 2012
Bottle bought @ Systembolaget. Pours dark reddish brown (almost black) with a rather small brownish white head that quickly dissipates without leaving much trace on the glass. Smell is sweet with rum, wood, vanilla, alcohol, roasted malts, raisins, chocolate, lemon zest and toffee. Taste is sweet and slightly bitter with rum, wood, alcohol, vanilla, raisins, bitter chocolate, sweetened coffee, liquorice fudge and toffee. Mouthfeel is tiny dry, boozy and medium to full bodied. Finish is slightly sweet and bitter with bitter chocolate, rum, raisins, roasted malts and coffee.

sebletitje (6895) - Enghien, BELGIUM - MAY 8, 2012
33cl bottle courtesy of and shared with _angst_ Batch #176. Brune claire, léger col beige/ocre laissant un léger filament doré sur le verre. Arôme de rhum, malt, le tout reste assez faiblard, caramel et toffee. En bouche, rhum est présent mais pour moi l’influence de Lost Abbey s’en retrouve faible et on voit bien là une bière qui signe bien Brewdog. Le tout est bien alcoolisé, malté, raisin/rhum a partager à plusieurs sur une pointe de vanille et barrique.
