4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle at Printz, Tolv Stockholm. Very good aroma. Good taste, some alcoholic notes, not extremely bitter. Served a bit too cold, but after a while the hoppy taste becomes as good as it should be.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: JAN 1, 2015 330ml bottle (Koht, Tallinn)
Holy jesus, this smells of shampoo. Palate is sticky. Taste is perfumey too. Bit of a mess. Malty and way too perfumey. Very sticky palate. However, it did cover the alcohol, so a bonus point, but overall, quite an unpleasant drink. Toung-scrapingly dirty chemical acidic hop finish, aggressive and quite nasty. Bit like Vlad, so well named.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Love the aroma, kind of like any other BrewDog’s IPA. Nice copper colour and thick foam. Soft palate, everything is in its place. The 8,2% is felt at the beginning, after that it is quite moderate. I thought it would be more intense because of it’s name and IBU. Expected more bitterness, that in turn makes the body and aftertaste weaker, which isn’t bad but waited just a little bit more. The berry flavor comes at the very end, when you breath in. Overall very pleasant and nicely done beer.

Shared by martjoobolut, thanks! Copper beer, tan head. Nose is hoppy, fruity, citric, caramel notes with malty sweetness. Flavor is pretty malty, caramel, smooth citrus notes, boozy-hoppy finish. Long finish. Decent DIPA, fair balance.
