4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: APR 29, 2015 Anniversary beer, basically their AB04 but with added vanilla and, whatever it is, naga chilli. Yellowish beige head, thin due to the extreme alcohol strength, colour near black, just a bit of chestnut glow under bright light. Very dense, powerful and exciting aroma revealing all kinds of cacao powder, bitter chocolate, black coffee, whisky, cider, cinnamon, pear syrup, peat, tobacco, vanilla, brown sugar and even that chilli. Taste begins assertively with a mouth-filling toasted bitterness, thick oily and powdery mouthfeel weighing heavy on the tongue, profound chocolatey maltiness, lots of spicy tones reminiscent of sweet tobacco, pepper and again that chilli, lots of dark fruits, finishing with a great deal of leafy hop bitterness, very very long, accompanied by an equally long warming alcohol reminiscent of coffee liqueur and cognac. Brewdog has flabbergastered me more than once but this is so far the most impressive thing I ever tasted from them - I would even go as far to say that this is one of the best beers I ever had.

Bourbon aroma and taste with a bit idea of cola on the taste. Thin foam rich shape. Cool beer for a night dessert. Worth tasting.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
2014-07-05. Black body with a nice creamy brown head that fades. 4+ Aroma is moderately roasty, dark chocolate, mild alcohol. Flavour is rich, sweet dark malt core, bitter finish has light roast and warming alcohol, cocoa. Whiskey notes? Alcohol is present on the palate and warming the throat but is surprisingly restrained. Very smooth full bodied palate, soft carbonation is possibly a touch light? On tap as Dog C at BrewDog, Aberdeen

4.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
33cl bottle. Bottled 2012-04-01. Pitch black colour with a very small light brown head. Aroma is laden with massive notes of coffee but also notes of cocoa and chilli. Overtones of sweet malts and brown sugar. Flavour is as massive as the aroma. Lots and lots of coffee with chilli and liqorice. A very decent amount of alcohol as well. A long lingering aftertaste.
