3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at Brewdog Birmingham
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.

clear brown, small light brown head.
quite malty aroma, also strong hops, ,strong malty aroma dominates, hops try to balance, but fail slightly.flavor is very nice , good hoppy bitterness, and lots of malts create a very nice slightly roasted base. If you are okay with a slightly sweet brwe, you’ll like this.
