3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma: Sure it is hoppy with a heavy malt accent following through, but there is also a sweet, mellow berry aroma all over.
Mouthfeel: Silky texture, firm body.
Taste: Strong bitterness, but not overly agressive. A fruity, marmalade-ish flavor kind of counter-effects it. Lots of grapefruit and Mild sweetness. (And peach?) Blackberries deep underneath, like thebeertourist says.
Finish: Very bitter, astringent.
Overall: Biternees dominates the palate and finish. Very good, unusual and surprisingly drinkable.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
330 ml bottle, BB date 18.09.13, from Vinmonopolet, Nettbutikken. ABV is 8.2%. Hazy orange colour, moderate to low white head. Fruity aroma, more from the fruity hops than the brambles. Fruity and well hopped flavour, but not extreme. The brambles are only there in the background. "Dusty" and reasonably bitter finish. Nice enough to drink.

Bottle. This is a pretty decent beer, not my favourite from Brewdog but it sure hits the spot nicely.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle. Slightly cloudy amber ale with a small white head. Typical Brew Dog pungent nose with tons of hops. Orange, mango, pineapple... and yes, blackberries! The blackberries really come into their own in the mouth though, they dominate and then the other hoppiness leaks through behind the charge. There’s a strong malt backbone there too and this turns from a blackcurrant wonder into a nice, surprisingly quaffable, brew. No big alcohol stings, no rush up the nose... a tasty triumph!

Flaske 0,33l fra Vinmonopolet, Langnes. Drukket i Skibotn 22 Feb 13. Gyldenbrun. Litt uklar. Raskt dalende skum. Behagelig fruktaroma. Litt banan. Litt sitrus. Smaken det samme. Blir litt syrlig etter hvert. God balanse. Litt tørr fruktig ettersmak. Godt øl!

Several bottles from the online shop, and at least once in the Edinburgh bar. Golden amber pour, thin white head. Big grapefruit aromas, resin and light blackberries. Big sweet taste, followed by hop bitterness. Berries remained light. Not the best of this series.

Bottled 330ml @Beer Hunters
