deanso (5728) - the Hague, NETHERLANDS - OCT 10, 2013
bottle courtesy of and shared with Worldbeertaste, big thanks. Very thin off white head. Raspberry aroma. Hazy red pour. Fruity alcohol taste. Nice and smooth. It has aged well. Nice brew!

maneliquor (3263) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - SEP 8, 2013
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours amber with a small white head. Nose shows heavy stone fruit and sweet citric fruits with light acidic tones and very heavy and sticky caramel. Taste is pretty much spot on that with some added oak undertones and velvet vanilla. Works very well and the age has probably mellowed out the fruit because I don’t get a heap of berry driven tones like I was expecting, more barnyard/funk. Exactly 3 years old today and leaves a good impression. Nice stuff

McNeillR (1325) - SCOTLAND - AUG 30, 2013
Fook meh this has held up. Tawny brown with sliver sand head. Pulped, instant freezed raspberries and sly malt pole. Strong dessert sweetness, big billing of crisp greatness. Silky finish of caressing sour, borrowed Yoda whispering hops, ploughed back over the sweet finish. Dreaming of how this stands on the 10th anniversary.Big rusty amber body with boozy listless head. Coppery nose, firey. Dense oily, oxidsed boozeage slips away to floral rustiness. Crystalled throughout, keeping it steely and narrow. Terse finish, mapely

Bottle, Brewdog Garvie Gauntlet

hopdog (9133) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 1, 2013
Bottle. Ok, this one was different. Berries, herbal, caramel, and some earthiness. I just kept thinking and noting that this one was ’interesting’.

fletchfighters (1134) - AUSTRALIA - FEB 4, 2013
Clear but dark deep red color. Little carbonation and head. Big nose of raspberries, vanilla and strawberries. Really surprised how the fruit had held up in this in the nose and the taste. Well balanced between sweet and tart with enough notes of the barrel/ cask mixed in. Just slight wood character . Waves of booze in the mouth here and there but a good mix and well balanced.

maekchu (2283) - Hirakata, JAPAN - JAN 24, 2013
Bottle at sampling session. From notes (Oct. 8, 2011). Strawberries and raspberries in the nose. Light reddish color. Strong berry flavors. Very dry and with an alc. kick. Bitterness near and in finish. Fumes hit in the final.

OrionBelt (32) - ITALY - JAN 15, 2013
Bottle, amber color. The nose ripe fruit, strawberries and malt. Mouthfeel is medium body, caramel, vanilla, strawberry, fruity, whiskey and wood, light citrus and sugar syrup. Low carbonation, slight hint of medicine.

bierkoning (10555) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - NOV 19, 2012
Bottle. Amber color. Remeins of red fruit in the aroma. Malty sweet flavor with raspberries and vinous notes. Tart with a hint of licorice. Citrus. Alcoholic. The fruit had faded. This beer doesn’t age really well.

snzcujo (282) - RUSSIA - OCT 17, 2012
Tasted from the bottle @home on 17/10/2012. Pours of lovely dark copper, crystal-clear color. Head is small off-white and quickly dissapears. Aroma is full of berries upfront, definitely packs of raspberries, strawberries are somewhere behind. After several sniffs a very nice, elegant sourness appears. Very complex and intensive aroma! Taste follows that pattern - astonishing mix of raspberrries upfront, tasty malt sweetness, wonderful bitterness lingering the back of the tongue - all covered with that lovely sour taste of fresh raspberries. After few sips also could feel faint strawberry notes. Having so much berries it, this beer is still has a "beer taste", pretty much drinkable and enjoyable. Well done, Brewdog! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
