The perfect beer for Turkey, The Queen’s Speech, boring relativies and boozed up Pictionary.

Merry Christmas.

TBone (12333) - Pori, FINLAND - APR 13, 2012
Bottled 330ml (Petalax, BB 09/2012)
Deep brown color, steady beige head. Aroma has toasted malts, some earth and tartness, chocolate. Medium-bodied. Toasted malty, a bit earthy cellary, hints of soya sauce and then black chocolate. There is some light fruity chili in the finish. Not the most "common" Brewdog.

oh6gdx (20217) - Vasa, FINLAND - APR 13, 2012
Bottled (thanks omhper!). Quite much black colour, mediumsized brown fluffy head. Aroma is mild toffee, caramel, some slight ashes and roast and dark dry fruits. Flavour is leather, some liquorice, mild salty and ashy notes as well as some toffee. Pleasant Porter, which probably suits some heavy meatdishes very well.

worldbeertaste (1599) - AUSTRIA - APR 8, 2012
Black with a red tint and a thick frothy tan head. Smell of light roast and a faint hint of chilli. Almost no smell. Medium frothy body and some graininess from the carbonation. Taste of rasin, licorish, roast and coffee with slight spiciness on finish. Sort of bland compared to th other Brewdogs. Rather a simple porter with some spicy lingering hints.

dreadnord (1013) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 30, 2012
Pours black with a small white head. Nose is not overwhelming. I struggle to get much of anything. What I do get is light scents of chocolate, maybe some coffee and light grassy notes. Weak. The flavor is slightly bitter. More sweet than not and a lot of mettalic notes. Mouthfeel is crisp and clean, aftertaste is long.

Pours totally black with a light brown head. Aroma is roasty malt, fruit and spices. Taste is also roasty malt, caramel, fruit, cacao and spices leading to a roasty finish. Pretty nice.
