COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
5am Saint is The Holy Grail of red ales. We live in a world of disposable deities. Someone, somehow has managed to press that big, flashing moronic override button and we’re hard wired straight into the pockets of false idols trying to make a quick buck. Sadly, for a lot of people the same mentality applies to beer. But who’s to know what’s worth worshiping when monolithic advertising budgets have you sucked down the rabbit hole in the blink of an eye? At BrewDog we are on a mission to open as many people’s eyes as possible. Cast away any aspersions and let the crook of BrewDog be your guide in a whirlwind of conformity and mediocrity. Once this ruby liquid forms a foamy halo around your glass, you’ll never want to look back.
Malts: Maris Otter, Caramalt, Munich Malt, Crystal and Dark Crystal Malts
Hops:Cascade, Amarillo, Nelson Sauvin, Simcoe, Ahtanum, Centennial
Twist: Loads of late hops and bucket-loads of dry hops

SlovakSniper (3369) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 11, 2011
(33 cl, batch 192) Dark amber ale with a sheet of foam. Some lacing. Nose is filled with toasted malts, grapefruit, raisins, mango and more. Very nice fruitiness. Maybe some leafy hops. Not so sure about that. Anway, taste is moderalty sweet with some delicious and bitter hops. Very pleasant palate : body is medium, carbonation is moderate to soft and texture seems to be oily. Nice lasting smooth bitter finish. Overall, very drinkable stuff.

suurjuust (1221) - ESTONIA - OCT 9, 2011
Brownish ruby red, slightly off white head. Aroma of caramel, spice, pine needles and some citrus notes. The taste begins malty, caramelly, citrusy and finishes piney, bitter, with citrus notes in the background. Long finish. Interesting and refreshing beer.

Miksu (4972) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - OCT 9, 2011
0.33 l bottle from Alko. Reddish amber color. Citrusy hop aroma with some tropical fruits, onions, toffee and dark caramel. Citrusy, caramelly and toffeish flavor with dry, salty and bitter finish.

Koelschtrinker (11054) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - OCT 4, 2011
Scharf bitterer Antrunk mit trockener Säure. Der blumige Hopfen steht dabei eher im Hintergrund. Holzige Noten kommen im Mittelteil hervor, die Säuerlichkeit wird ein wenig stärker, die Bitterkeit lässtwässrige Noten durchblitzen. Rundes und volles, dazu süffiges Bier. Super Erfrischung! 11/12/12/11/11/12

BeerManic (21) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 4, 2011
Bottle. Pours a medium red. Fluffy head, reasonable carbonation. Hop aroma is stunning, full of floral aromatic character. The taste follows suit with a blast off sweet hop, then an almost chewy malt sensation. Not as bitter as I remember, lovely beer.

Scottrf (105) - Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 3, 2011
Clear brown, no bubbles. Light beige head with lacing. Malty red fruit aroma. Fruity, malty with a lasting/building pepper/bitter aftertaste. Big fan, but the hoppiness can overpower the rest of the beer, stops it scoring higher.

welho (93) - FINLAND - OCT 1, 2011
330ml bottle. Dark red amber, white little brownish head. Aroma has some clear pine. Lots of hops and taste ends with bitterness. Since I like it I guess I am so called hophead then?

Velkyal (297) - Gordonsville, Virginia, USA - SEP 30, 2011
Pours a rich red, topped with a rocky light beige head. The aroma is heavy with caramel, some earthy spice and a touch of smoke. Taste is piney hop bitterness overwhelming the sweetness of the caramel malt. Thin bodied and increasingly rank as drinking continues.

Tastes like hops but not in a good way - pellets and all that : pleasant but the hop overpower ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Brenhophead (595) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - SEP 30, 2011
UPDATED: MAY 28, 2012 330mL bottle, pours a deep redish copper with a small offwhite head . Has a gargantuan aroma of pine, mango, toffee, caramel, tropical fruit all mixed in together and they complement each other so well. Taste is grapefuit and pine with the sweet toffee malt. Overall this beer floored my taste buds, so much flavour in this beer and its only 5%! I could drink it all night.
