Brown bottle, 330ml, co-op. Scentless. Light toffee and coffee notes. Pours black cola with a ruby hue. Taste is dense coffee and toffee notes. Thick and syrup feeling. Grassy and earthy feelings on the mouth. Good.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark brown with ruby red hues and a fine poring tan head. Aromas of toast, chocolate, instant coffee and heather paired with subtle dried leather and light tobacco notes. Short pronounced fine carbonation offering a light slick texture and a full body. Chocolatey milk coffee sweetness develops with a noticeable roast astringency. Lasting bit warming finish, harmonic beer!

Dry chocolate dark peat creamy runon sentence. Dont get much honey or punctuation. Light head on dark brown. Aroma is quiet chaos: peat herb root interesting echoes.flavour is intriguing but seems a work in progress needing some finessing.

Wow! Aroma of dark mollases and malts. Huge malty blast that coats your tongue immediately and lingers. The malts fade into a sweet honey flavour. Really nice balance and tons of flavour here.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Really enjoyable. Heavy wee scotch malt, toffee, molasses, light chocolate and woody notes. Nice malt base. The pour is nearly opaque, dark muddy brown with a thin light tan head. The aroma is malty with a bit of fruity notes, toffee, caramel, molasses, dessert like. A nice heavy malt flavour profile. Sweet but reserved somehow. Not bitter but a light robustness on the end. A good wee heavy style.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
330 ml bottle bought at Gorgeous Wine & Cigar in Yuen Long.
Looks: Clear, deep blackish brown colour; Less than one-quarter finger head with soapy light beige foam which fades in 15 seconds;
Pretty good sticky lacing and near zero carbonation.
Aroma: Quite fragrant roasted dark malt, with strong toffee, caramel, creamed coffee, brown sugar, very light milk powder, yeast and faint grass.
Taste: Close to medium sweet dark malt, with very strong roastyness, very light smoke, soot, faint hint of Whiskey, caramel, light toffee, burnt toast, molasses, moderate coffee, hints of soy sauce, lime, quite strong bitter hops and sharp grass.
Body: Mid to light body. Thin palate.
Mouth Feel: Good dark maltyness in a rather thin body, very strongly roasted with taste more like a Stout. Some notable Peat maltish soot and faint Whiskey taste prevalent. Not much Heather honey on the tongue but rather subtle sweetness match quite well with the roast, burnt toast and bitter hops. A bit of soy sauce here, but otherwise not much imaginative fruityness or sweetness you can find here. This is strange but intense. Not bad at all.
Hoppiness: Faint grass in nose. Lime and sharp grass in nose and taste. Bitterness is quite strong for a lasting bitter-sweet roasty finish.
After Taste: Quite dry. Roasty with light Whiskey, bitter-sweet to mouth.
Comments: This is one of those BrewDog’s experiments that will divide drinkers’ opinion. This tastes more like a Stout than a Scotch Ale, with dark roastyness so strong. The customary Peat-like soots and Whiskey hint is nice but a bit gimmicky. I was looking for some intense honey, cocoa and coffee, but they are muted at best. A decent brew, quite nice to drink but it’s not something I will re-stock again.
