sputnikus (96) - Brno, CZECH REPUBLIC - JAN 28, 2013
Bottle. Beer has hazy, golden appearance with minimal, quickly dissapearing white head. Aroma is really awesome mix of vanilla, citruses, butterscotch and spices, kinda like hopped whiskey. Taste is definetly soursweet with salty note. Medium body with creamy texture is combined with lively carbonation and long finish. This exemplar is really "random", but very interesting experience, so, why not.

Courtesy of Armando629, thanks! Kinézetre elmehetne akár egy jó kellernek is, de ha a közepes méretű habot leszámítjuk, akkor egy citromos teának is hihetnénk. Illata kicsit cefrés, fűszeres, fanyarkás és alkoholosan édeskés. Íze igen kiegyensúlyozatlan, fűszeres, kissé whiskys, fanyar, fás, alkoholos, még egy kis ecetes dinnyét is véltem benne felfedezni. Közepesen testes és buborékos. Utóíze kesernyés és savanykás. Tessék meghagyni ezt a stílust a németeknek és a cseheknek, mert ez nem áll jól ennek a skót főzdének. Egy kísérletnek elmegy, de ennyi elég is belőle...

Vraiment écoeurant.. Trčs déséquilibrée..On boit une larme et on jette le reste dans l’évier! Je ne désire pas en dire plus mais cette fois-ci les écossais ont déconner !

armando629 (2415) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JAN 19, 2013
0,33 l bottle from the Brewdog online store.
Poured hazy opalescent golden with a medium froathy white head. Aroma of brett, spicies like clove, herbs, vanilla and some citrusses. What the hell is this chaos? Lively carbonation, medium body with malt, vinegar and herbs, wood and grass. Dry aftertaste. Interesting experience but not my favourite one.

rosenbergh (7248) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 12, 2013
330 ml bottle. Batch #118. BB 17/04/2013. From brewdog.com.
Clear deep golden colour with small white head. Aroma is whiskey sweetness, vanilla, mild tartness and ripe raspberries. Flavour is berries, whiskey sweetness, vanilla, butterscotch and mild bitterness. Quite drinkable. Ageing has improved the flavour I would say.

Uhlen (251) - Trondheim, NORWAY - DEC 3, 2012
Golden liquid with a tiny white head. Smells like wine and apples. Taste is sour and dry, with a hint of malt. Not my kind of beer at all.

brokensail (11371) - Orange County, California, USA - DEC 2, 2012
Orange colored pour with a white head. Intense diacetyl aroma, some oak, and citrus peel. Very grassy, vegetal, and some fruit notes. A bit of water, too. The flavor is somewhat sweet with a bit of pale malt. There’s some oak, a hint of whiskey, and lots of butter. Some grass, cooked vegetables, citrus peel, and a weird savory note.

33 cl bottle @ home. Pours clear golden with a white head that leaves a little lacing. Aroma is sweet with notes of caramel, dark fruit, and whiskey. Flavour is dark fruit, caramel, and flowery hops.
