On tap at glasgow brewdog. Pours a muddy black/brown color. Tan mostly lasting head. As thick as oil in the glass. It has a nose of dark fruits and molasses with a touch of dark chocolate/coffee. Mouthfeel is syrupy and it sticks to your throat going down. Taste is coffee and molases and dark chocolate. No chilli though...All in all I am glad I got it.

Beese (2560) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 9, 2014
Draught at BrewDog Shepherd’s Bush. Pours a thick black, with a thin tan head. Massive aroma of coal, treacle, booze soaked cherries and slight smoke. Full, syrupy mouth feel. Complex flavours of black cherry, dark fruit, liquorice and roasted malt. Finish is lovely, balanced whisky, dark rum, peat, molasses and dates. Smashing beer.

Draft at BrewDog Sheperd’s Bush (under the name Dog B). Poured black with a thin tan head. Aroma of Xmas pudding, toffee and slight booze. Full syrupy mouth feel. Flavours are incredibly full with molasses, maple, dried fruit and chewy malt. Palate is equally gratifying. Notes of port, slight whiskey, dry grains and fruit cake. Very tasty, but I’m surprised to find that Dog B is the same as Dog A...

Procent (330) - POLAND - JUL 2, 2014
W aromacie wanilia, kawa, czekolada, trochę chili w tle, barwa ciemny brąz/wiśnia. Piana minimalna, lacing średni. W smaku na początku słodycz i czekolada, ale zaraz potem kontrowane przez goryczkę i silny, wyczuwalny smak chilli - dla mnie zbyt wyczuwalny, bo nie tylko daje dodatkowej ostrości i uczucie pieczenia, ale po prostu czuć chili, której nie lubię. Za dużo Chili, nie dla mnie...

bobroman (661) - Torun, POLAND - JUL 1, 2014
Intensive chocolate aroma with some roasted malts. Small beige head disappearing to ring. Completely black body. Briliantly balanced and intensive taste of chocolate sweetness and coffee bitterness. Alcohol is very well-hidden but pleasantly throat-warming. Chili is almost unnoticeable but pleasantly powers up the aftertaste. Personally I prefer more chili, but it’s OK. Very massive, powerfull and impressive. Great pleasure to drink this. Happy anniversary BrewDog.

Bottle. Deep black pour with small, very tan head. Aroma has an initial hit of chilli along with chocolate and coffee. Great chocolate flavour, followed by some dark fruit, liquorice, chilli and coffee. Strong alcohol remains after. Great drink!
