3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
330ml bottle kindly shared by Chriso and fonefan at The BrewDog Bar in Manchester. Inky black body, naked surface. Vanilla oak to the nose added by bready malts. Taste good with Christmas spices, bread, sweet liquorice, and gradually arriving dark fruity hops that lingers for quite a while. Warming alcohol. Full bodied. Nice sipper (25.01.2013).

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
330mL bottle at Brewdog Leeds, pours black with a tiny tan head. Aroma brings out shitloads of rum barrels that totally dominate everything. Flavour brings out lots of soy sauce that totally dominate everything, with secondary notes of rum. Man, this is a total soy sauce bomb. Interesting how a rum nose could be totally different on the palate. Decent, but strange.

Opaque black - brown beer, short bubbly tan head. Palate is airy and light and slight soft. Modest fine carbonation. Rich tangy dark malts, but not heavy at all. Clear rum and raisan and other tangy dark fruits. Some alcohol spice but it’s not a hot beer. Finishes light leaving a slight warm afterglow. Pretty good.
