ComradeK (977) - The Vale of Dundas, - JUN 12, 2013
330ml bottle. Pours a hazy medium amber, with a smallish off-white head, which lasts well and leaves reasonable lacing. The aroma has strong pine resin and floral hops notes set against a fair amount of sweet alcohol, some berry notes and toffee malt. Powerful white pepper and pine resin hops up front lead into warming, sweet alcohol. There is a touch of Vegemite leading into some toffee malt in the mid-palate, with peppery hops, port and sweet alocohol in the finish. BrewDog make a lot of quite out there beers, most of which they pull off with aplomb. This one, however, is a bit of a miss. The hops flavours are actually quite pleasant, but they are dominated by the massive 14% ABV. If it was an imperial stout, it could handle that amount of alcohol, but in this imperial IPA it dominates the flavour way too much.

Monchito_IPA (128) - SPAIN - JUN 6, 2014
Ámbar, casi sin espuma. Cuerpo tipo caldo de pollo, sin ninguna vivacidad, con lágrimas en el vaso. Aroma a lúpulo intenso, en la boca hay algo de malta pero domina con creces el lúpulo. Es como un oloroso dulce en versión cerveza, como curiosidad está bien pero por ese precio mejor para compartir, no creo que repitas.

From a bottle. Wow, this is a big beer, no, huge beer. The super rich hops flavours have a grapefruit edge, strong as hell but no sharp alcohol punch like I expected. This is a very well made beer.

Bottle from Brewdog online shop, shared with jeevan. A bit of a boozy, sugary mess, as I recall.

Bygers (632) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 15, 2014
Bottle 0,33l. Pours a dark amber colour with a medium head that leaves a big nice lacing. Aroma of hops, alcohol, caramel and toasted malts, lots of toffee and the faintest touch of resin. Taste of sweet malts, dominating the palate, nice lengthy bitterness. Oily texture. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

angel77 (768) - oviedo, SPAIN - JAN 28, 2014
Botella de 33 cl en la cantina renfe de avilés. Junio de 2013. Increíble triple india Pale ale con sabores algo afrutados al principio predominando sabores bastante maltosos y dulces y terminando con un Amargor bastante bueno y persistente. Cuerpo fuerte y pastoso con 14 maravillosos grados de alcohol que se notan de principio a fin. Una maravilla de cerveza para repetir lo antes posible.

0,33 l bottle, Csakajósör - rated one year before, just from my notes
Pours golden brown with not much head. Aroma is malty with an alcohol kick. Pretty nice to sup, finishes sweet and alcoholic with some grapefruit hops in there. As it warms up, it becomes more pleasant and becomes a nice fruity barley wine.
