2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle 37,5 cl. Courtesy of yespr. Pours a clear deep golden with a small white head. Dry chili notes on a bed of syrupy fruit. Rich body, thick and rich fruits, again syrupy with a rough hop profile and then again quite some chili. Boozy finish. No pleasure in this one for me. I note that others taste coffee where I taste chili - actually I often feel a similarity between the too. But I do feel a slight bite here. 290212

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Yet another surprising concoction from Brewdog - getting a lot of different smells and tastes: coffee, blue cheese, cigar, honey, licorice. A strange mix but works great!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
375 ml bottle. Clear, amber liquid with small to medium off-white head. Looks like an IPA or something similar. Aroma of coffee, chocolate, ash, nuts, some butter and caramel malt. Somewhat imperial stout-like but still not too similar. Taste is light sweet, light to medium bitter and has notes of peanuts, ash, butter and cold coffee. Medium bodied with good carbonation. Interesting experiment but not the best beer I’ve had. Still, enjoyable.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. VERY STRANGE beer! My friend had me blindtasting this one, and I thought it was a barley wine when cold. It has also got some lightly smoked vegtable notes that reminds me of some kind of german bock beer. Lots of licorice, Very alcoholic.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Brewdog.com. Well, it certainly smells of stout, very much so. My friend Sophie tells me I cannot use words like "aroma" or "palette" so I won’t. Very nice and definitely an American strong ale, not a stout.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Whether this lives up to its ’white stout’ promise matters not. Similarly to the Durham attempt, it isn’t necessarily successful, but it does what it does very well indeed. A mid-blonde, clear body, with a fluffy white head, this beer lets of aromas of oak, coconut, vanilla sugar, and maybe even some jam. Thick, boozey body, with plenty of burn to it, tastes of vanilla and chocolatey marshmallows. A hefty mouthful of icing sugar finishes it off - an exceptionally sweet and indulgent dessert beer, if ever there was one.
