3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Bottle Park. Aroma is perceptibly nutty, with light fruity hops background. Clear dark brown colour. Taste is fruity up front, assertive bitterness, but in excellent balance with nutty biscuity caramelly maltiness. Just a slightest hint of roast, mostly in finish. Full bodied, easily drinkable. Long balanced finish. Very good experiment.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Asahiya. Sweet juicy roast malt nose, light spice and nutty notes. Light translucent brown. Gentle sugary toasty malt / balances with some rough hops / barely detect the hazelnuts or the oak / hop tingling finish. Medium body. Okay. Has some roughness than doesn’t belong in a brown ale.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A rather nice brown ale with a mild taste. Not the best that BrewDog has offered, however, drinkable. Nice to try but there are better beers to try out there.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from CBB. A pitch black pour with a foamy beige head. Fruity, figs, malts in the nose. Medium bodied with a slightly rough mouthfeel from the carbonation. The taste is chocolate, bitter dark chocolate, some cherries but I don’t get much oak or hazelnuts. Not bad. It opened up somewhat after warming up but stayed in the well made but average category.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Full bodied, rich and tawny but perhaps lacking a defining character. Chocolate, caramel, toffee and some firm hop assertiveness.
