Bottle remain the last. Dark brown with a small tan head. Aroma is strong with alcohol and chocolate and bourbon whiskey and liquorice. Taste is strong and bold, syrupy sweetness and tart tangy bitter alcohol. Thick and oily with carbonation that combines with the abv to leave your tongue humming. Very good.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Bottle - Dog B. Batch 142. Bottled on 17-06-2013.
Pours dark black with hardly any head. Nose is coffee, dark chocolate, vanilla cream. A trouch of licorice and chili almost comes through. Taste is warm - there’s chili straight away, very little fizz, but theres a few bubbles carrying it across the tongue, with chocolate, a touch of licorice, whisky tastes. I can pull vanilla, raisins and banana out of it. There’s a little chili burn, a little alcohol burn, but it’s drinkable. Sippable actually. Some brewer has been proud to make this one.
Now theres some coffee, it’s like drinking a rich irish coffee. Warm. Inviting. So embracing.

2.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Aroma: Medium-high rich, dark malt. Licorice, soy sauce, settles down to bread crusts. Light alcohol
Appearance: Black body with red hues. Very small head that dissipates quickly.
Flavour: Medium-high soy sauce, bitterness. Medium alcohol. Light berries, cardboard. Dry, harsh alcoholic (near nail polish remover), soy sauce finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-high warming, but not harsh. Medium-light carbonation. Medium-high body.
Overall: One sided and very alcoholic. Missing the complexity associated with RIS. It feels like the enamel on your teeth is melting off. Possible oxidation.
330 ml bottle, poured.

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.
