2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

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.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.
