Clear golden pour, thin white head. Aroma is heavily hopped alcoholic pine resin juice. Flavor is warming (burning) hop bitterness with loads of plants. A bit too much.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Keg @ The White Horse On Parsons Green. Pours deep chestnut red with the absence of a head. The nose is huge medicinal hops, astringent. Boozy. Plenty of sweet toffee, cherry. The taste is dense fruit cake, toffee. This gives over to a wallop of bitter, herbal hop flavors. A bit caustic tasting, but not an absolute palate wrecker. Still, this drinks pretty heavily, you’re well aware this is a high ABV beer. Dense. My half pint was more than enough. I guess comparisons to 120 Minute are inevitable, but perhaps not warranted. Overall, OK.

So rich and syrupy that if calories concern you then this is not a beer for you. Lovely rich colour with flavour to burn. Dangerous alcohol level.

On tap at BD Camden. It pours a slightly hazy golden colour with a small white head. Aroma is hops, pine needles and booze. Sweet and hoppy in the mouth with hops, resin, toffee and alcohol notes. Sticky mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Nothing legendary here.

Pours a clear and copper beer with a weak white head. The aroma is malt, alcohol and hops with citrus and grapefruit. The flavor follows the nose. The palate is sweetness and alcoholwarmth. Overall a good beer, but with too much alcohol.

Dark golden colour, white head, hoppy and spicy aroma, with some honey sweetness. Taste is sweet, malty, some more spices, apricot and hops. Powerful stuff. Interesting too, but it just isn’t brilliant by any means.

Draught at Brewdog Camden. RATING #5,000!!! (okay, I have over 300 in my backlog, but lets not be picky). Beautiful bright ruby-amber with a smallish diminishing off-white head - looks syrupy. Utterly huge aroma; fruity thick malt, plenty of booze, grain and various bittering elements. Tastes sweet and boozy, apricot, dried herbs, sage, nomnomnom - a real "go for it" american bw. Slick, thick, syrupy, surprisingly well carbonated, a real ear-warmer and even a touch tart. Really loved it, but a pint of this would fuck you up big time. 5000 ratings in just over seven years. Holy shit, do I have ANY liver function left? Whocares. Wheeeee!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
33cl bottle at Amundsen. Batch 72. Best before 2017-03-15. Orange colour with a small head. Aroma is rich and malty. Massive notes of malts and caramel. Faint hints of hops but it’s almost drowned out. Not a lot of alcohol either. Flavour is also rich. Alcohol is more noticable here. Caramel, malts, bread, toffee and of course alcohol, although the alcohol is very well hidden. Warming.
