4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Finally a Brewdog beer that actually really hits the nail. Sweet and cakey notes with undertones of roastiness and pleasant alcohol. Some sweet dark fruit as well. aromawise it is not overwhelming - a bit boozy - still pretty nice though.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
33cl bottle. Deep dark brown colour with a thin tan head. Dark chocolate, coffee, roasted, leather, molasses, vanilla and chilli in the aroma. Soft carbonation and full oily body. Taste is bitter but almost sweet with dark chocolate upfront but with some liqueur notes in the long finish. Overall, a very good beer.

4.9 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Batch 142. bottled on: 17/06/13. Pours thick black, very minimal head that disappears quickly. Sweet rich dark chocolate and coffee aroma, not getting the chilli and vanilla as much as i’d thought. Chilli may accompany the alcohol burn a little. Nice and thick syrupy Imp. stout.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
100ml sample at Hanshin Dept Store.
L: jet black, no head, like syrup. A few tiny bubbles.
S: Rich roasted chocolate malt. So much dark chocolate.
T: boozy, like bourbon, but with dense malt and chocolate. More
bitter than sweetness.
F: slight carbonation, coats the throat and lips, full-bodied.
O: decent sipper, I like my stouts a bit lighter and more complex. The supposed chili didn’t really come through like how it works in Prairie Bomb.
