2.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
This is probably the scariest I have been drinking recently. When I opened it and smelled it, I became quite fond of it. But after tasting it so I changed my mind. It did not taste at all what it smelled sadly. Strange taste, I can say it was.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Birratrovo, Como, bb 10.03.13, batch 068
Hazy light amber color; medium sized head. Pungent aroma of fruity hops, tropical fruits, strong manure, some toffee later. Good malt and caramel flavor, with some apricot jam, light residual sweetness; good bitterness level, well blended and balanced, with fruity and resiny hops. The final is bold and pungent, the best of the series.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
0.33l bottle from Brewdog web shop shared with Inbreak. This is a near-clear honey-orange one with a medium sized off-white quite bubbly head. On the aroma this one is light hoppy, some grapes going on here, a little earthy tone, also I get some quite clear references to red-currants stitches. not bad, a bit more on the subtle side perhaps? It has a slick to oily texture and a soft to average carbonation level. Flavors are mild caramel sweet, quickly balanced by light soapy and grassy hopps. It also has a hint of mouthdrying earthy-starch. Not bad, a bit subtle perhaps. 14.06.2012
