Aniela (2412) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - APR 3, 2012
From a 37,5 cl bottle at home in Skövde. Bottle 5335 of 7902. Amber clear beer withe a big offwhite head. Dried fruits, brown sugar aroma with malty notes. Very sweet beer with alcohol flavour.

gyllenbock (4862) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAR 31, 2012
Bottle. Clear golden with a small white head. This was a strange beer, hard to describe. It was sweet with notes of alcohol, also ash, toffee and malt. Far from the best one from BrewDog.

SirLimpsalot (2249) - SWEDEN - MAR 31, 2012
Blir inte riktig klok på denna. Doften består i stort sätt av aska. Även så i smaken. Torr. Lite sträv och besk eftersmak. En mycket udda öl. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Hermod (3308) - Vantaa, FINLAND - MAR 25, 2012
Bottle # 5729, bought from Kihoskh. Poured clear golden with a white head. Very good looking. Aroma is old coffee filters, toffee and sweetness. Flavor is quite a mess, cold coffee, caramel, very sweet and oily. Alcohol pushing through a lot in the finish as well.

rlgk (11026) - Göteborg/Jönköping, SWEDEN - MAR 24, 2012
Bottle. Copper/golden beer with a small white head. Roasted malt aroma, toffee, brown sugar, a little vinous. Sweet flavor, alcohol growing stronger and stronger. Way top sweet, tio much alcohol och with notes of strange flavors I cant describe.

tkrjukoff (4082) - SWEDEN - MAR 24, 2012
Bottle 37,5 cl. Pours clear amber with a small off white head. Aroma is malty bready a bit sweet hoppy and slightly fruity. Flavor is too sweet, too boozy, nice touch of smoke, maltyness and bitterness. Not in my alley. They should be able to do better than this.

Ktwse (2082) - SWEDEN - MAR 18, 2012
Pours clear orange with a fairly big white head that drops quickly. Aroma is very sweet with lots of alcohol present. Caramel, toffee, butterscotch, dates. Not a lot of hops in there. Taste is very sweet up front with a funky off-taste. The alcohol is really too strong, as I feel has been the case with several in the AB series. Finish is quite long with a strong pungent bitterness balancing up all the alcohol sweetness. Not a lot of carbonation and quite full bodied. Very warming, but not my favorite in the series. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

FatPhil (9405) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 17, 2012
375ml bottle (Kaisla, Helsinki)
Dry, stale coffee aroma, but without any of the fullness of actual coffee. Smooth sweet body. Again, a thin coffee in teh taste. Thin and plasticky. Palate a touch sticky. Does cover the 11.8% well though, it feels about the 8% level. The coffeeness doesn’t sit well in the beer, and the beer itself is a bit messed up. There’s a fine line between genius and stupid.

espenra (878) - Kurland, NORWAY - MAR 17, 2012
37.5cl bottle at Håndverkerstuene. Wonderful bronze golden colour with a disappointingly small head. Aroma is rather complex with notes of hops, malts, coffee, caramel. Faint hints of alcohol. Alcohol is massive and the first thing that hits the palate. A weird mixture of hops, roasted malts, coffee, caramel. The alcohol has a warming feeling. A massive beer to take on alone despite the small size. Long lingering aftertaste.

Bottle at home ... copper ... thin white head ... soft smokey woody hop nose ... very fizzy ... orange fruits ... woody malts ... soft toffee ... loads of alcohol ... little spirit burn ... hint of burnt malts ... hints of whisky ... not really me ... the more i drink the less i like it. rough raw alcohol
