COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
keg and bottles, special
10 Heads High is loosely based on our awesome 2011 Prototype beer Hops Kill Nazis. This is an uncompromising 7.7% Imperial Red Ale loaded high with American Hops. Think of this as an Imperial india Rd Ale, or a super-charged version of 5am Saint. Either way this is a seriously good beer!
2013 vintage - 7.8% abv

Nowhere near the hop assault I recall from Hops Kill Nazis. In fact, not enough hops at all for my taste. Nice, but still somewhat disappointing. -- rated via 'Find A Beer' for Blackberry 10

armando629 (2415) - Budapest, HUNGARY - AUG 20, 2013
0,33 l bottle, Brewdog Online Store.
Deep saturated red appearance with a medium creamy offwhite-tan head. Floral piney aroma with malt, some liquerice, forest. Fine body, well hidden alcohol. Flavor of some sweet but not too sweet malt, light cocoa, caramel. And the resinous, piney hop taste arrives slowly but rules the aftertaste. It was a really fine ale- i think. And yes, this is a double5am ;-)

Vignale (2184) - Malmö, SWEDEN - AUG 18, 2013
Flaska från SB. Stor maltsöt doft med citrusmarmelad, röda bär, karamell, lite metall. smaken är söt och ganska oren. Plåt, gummi, bensin tillsammans med rejäl beska gör mig inte imponerad. Drickbar men inte mer.

Senap (386) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - AUG 17, 2013
Hm, doft och smak matchar inte. Fruktig och fyllig doft. Smaken domineras av en tydlig beska. Den har en ton av någon form av trä, typ asp. Ja, inte illa, men ingen mästare heller.

Jorn69 (1158) - Ängelholm, SWEDEN - AUG 17, 2013
@ Havregatan. Flaska från Systembolaget (30:-). Fruktig doft av bla grape och tallbarr. Också i smaken finns det grape och tallbarr, även lakrits och lite choklad. Rejält besk.

stefannilssons (1491) - SWEDEN - AUG 16, 2013
Det här var en bra öl med en lätt märklig och komplex smak. Kroppen är stabil men speciellt balanserad tycker jag inte att den är. Smaken är lite lätt spritig med dova fruktiga toner och inslag av lakrits och vindruva. Dessutom är aromen ljuvlig här och beskan hänsynslös.

Staffan47 (880) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - AUG 15, 2013
Färgen får vi kalla stiltypisk. Men o så dålig. Hög spretig beska som bara är jobbig. Doftar inget vidare heller. Snudd på vasken. Flaskad 26-04-14

hoffback (37) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - AUG 15, 2013
Doften är små toner av gräs. Känner tydlig maltkaraktär samt någon typ av godis. Smaken är även den maltig och söt. Ganska tunn eftersmak.

This was my final stop before heading back home. I am sure it is available at other locations as well. Would I order it again? Probably not due to the high cost but it is worth sampling once if you have plenty of time.

Aroma / Appearance - The amber red base shimmers in the industrial light. A fringe of sticky head adds some more depth. Strong malted tea, cocoa, and a very hoppy assault hit the nose with little effort. This is not an example of subtlety.

Flavor / Palate - Chestnuts, walnuts, and strong tea are bitter on the tongue. A chocolately transition moves things towards a hop driven finish. Strong and intense it isn’t your average amber ale. I would actually prefer something more toned down if I were doing it differently but it was not a bad choice.
