Bottle at Craig’s tasting. Piney, bitter, dry, bit harsh, too sweet, needs longer in the bottle.

Light pale nose. More active than its sister beer. Some syrup. Tamer and nice but could do with more definition and individuality.

330ml bottle, cheers Craig. Pours hazy reddish brown, no head. Aromas are sherry and Christmas cake. Taste is more of the same, light boozy whisky note. Much smoother than the earlier version, nice.

Bottle, thanks Craig. Nice mahogany red with off white head. Aroma of sherry, dried fruits. Taste is oxidised in a nice way, sherry and dried fruits. Quite sweet and bitter. Nice

Amber copper, small to no head.
Nose is extremely sweet with caramel and tropical notes. Full body, oily texture. No carbonation. Red fruits, caramel and toffee, marmelade, tropical fruity hints, brown sugar...wow!

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Lots of bourbon. Very boozy. Lots of oak smell, too. Eventually flavors of coffee and pepper come out. This stuff is really heavy and kind of tedious...

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle originally from BrewDog online. BrewDog rating #200. It pours deep ruby with a rapidly diminishing yellow head. The nose is quite savoury, wood, earth, brown bread, spice, tart fruit skin, date, fig, berry, faint jam. The taste is plum skin, date, red grape, fig, faint fruity tartness, toffee, wood, varnish, resin, alcohol warmth, spice and some medicinal whisky notes with a dry, bitter finish. Full body, fine carbonation and foamy mouth-feel. Good depth of flavour and well balanced. The fine carbonation lifts it and makes it rather drinkable also. Tasty.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cellared bottle. Pours murky brown with no head. Aroma is slightly over-ripened stone fruit (very specific, I know). Taste is oxidized a bit, sweet....I taste plum, Sticky sweet and slightly cloying. Kind of a mess but this may have been improperly stored. I will try another to make a better assessment.

Botella de 33 cl tranquilamente en casa una noche de junio de 2011. Una auténtica maravilla. Sabores tostados, café y toque ahumado y madera de whisky. Algo de dulzor también. Una maravilla además con 13.8 vol. Para darle más vidilla a la cosa. Una gran pena que no haya más.
