Brewed By BeerCast Rich and Hopzine Rob
Rob and Rich have named the beer Dead Metaphor, after a lot of the nomenclature and meaningless buzz words and phrases that are bandied about in the world of beer writing. This beer should be sipped for instant inspiration. - See more at: http://www.brewdog.com/blog-article/introducing-dead-metaphor#sthash.pM7YQs8T.dpuf

fredfa (27) - belo horizonte, BRAZIL - MAR 30, 2015
Melhor stout normal que já provei. Não sou fã do estilo, mas desta eu gostei. Não chega nem perto de algumas RIS, mas está aprovada. Só achei um pouco ácida.

Werckmeister (405) - Vienna, AUSTRIA - MAR 20, 2015
Bottle at home. Black color, small coffee colored head. Smells malty roasty, coffee, some raosted grain notes, also a very light smoke note and slight sweetness. Full body, slick, malty taste, light to medium sweetness, light smoke note, some coffee, some roastiness. Light smoky / light sweet malty finish. Good, I would enjoy a bit more roasty bitterness on the finish instead of the sweetness.

Kauge (536) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - NOV 30, 2014
Transferring some earlier reviews from my blog to RB. Märts 2014, City Beverage, London. Batch 018. Süsimust, tumepruuni helgiga. Aktiivne ebaühtlane tumekreemikas vaht. Lõhn on julmalt mõrušokolaadine ja kakaone, see kargab ninna kohe kui pudel avatud - lisaks on siin midagi suitsust ning tuhmi ja mullast, umbes nagu südasuvine päikese käes kõrbenud muldtee. Erksa mulliga, kuid pehme, Stouti kohta ülimõrkjas-hapukas, veits nagu jooks külma espressot (see röstine maitse nagu muud esile ei lubakski). Neelatades tähelepanuväärselt torkiv humal või isegi alkoholisus. Esialgu ei tundu magus. Lõhn muutub soojenedes veidi magusamaks, meenutades nüüd tõesti pigem (siiski tumedat) piimašokolaadi. Kurgupärra jääb kleepjas tunne ning hapukas järelmaik, suulage katab kuivus. Väike pettumus - ootasin midagi coolimat. Kuidagi nurgeline jook.
