Che birrone! Ciliegie, zucchero a velo, toffee, canditi, pan di spagna inzuppato di brandy, malto caramellato, vaniglia... Liquorosa, vinosa, dolce, rotonda, alcolica, di corpo medio-abbondante, vellutata... Peccato solo per il finale, piacevolmente amarognolo, che è più "corto" dell’atteso!

Flavour is liquorice, roasted malts, some chocolate and coffee along with mild ripe fruits and some alcohol to it. Thick and big, and actually rather tasty.

I was just lamenting the disappointing qualities of BrewDog’s top beer when I found this in my tickle trunk. And what a beer it is. Suave, slick, with a slight alcoholic burm this is the beer which should show the righteous the BrewDog potential.
Restrained coffee, chocolate, smoothness and awesomeness. Fannytastic.

Can@brewdog hki. Black, brown timid top. Roasty, soy roasty, clean, some madeira, porty tones. Full bodied, quite easy though. Roasty soy, some smoke, sausage bbq. But really like the texture, finish. Has an oilyness nidpalate, but totally wiped clean in the finish, without being harsh too bitter. Well made, nice. Chocolately, soy-y, some vanilla, super drinkable ris. Edit. This grows on you. Really nice.
