Aroma has gooseberry bush, some citrus and exotic fruits. Flavour is somewhat sweet and stale with grapefruits, gooseberry bush, caramel and some nettles. Also some odd savor I find hard to describe. Too stuffy and sweet, the new version is much better.

Just tried this a few weeks ago and we impressed with the overall taste and feel of the beer. It’s a solid effort from BrewDog.

Una auténtica joya. Nariz muy afrutada con matices de fruta madura, herbáceos y lúpulos cítricos. En boca tiene cuerpo y un gran equilibrio amargo! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dark yellow, copper indeed with brownish foam head, staying and lacing to glass. Aroma is sweet, not hoppy. Taste is bittersweet, with some banana and apple apparently, interesting combination of hop and fruits. Shorter bittersweet aftertaste.

Huubs (142) - NETHERLANDS - SEP 6, 2012
Helder koperen kleur met kleine witte schuimkraag die snel vermindert. Geur is zoet met hop. Smaak is fruitig zoet. Smaak is wederom zoet en fors hop. Beetje koolzuur aanwezig, maar alcohol goed verborgen. Nasmaak wat bitter en droog. Aldus Huubs. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
