3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottle, 0.33 l, at William K Kurvi, 20131109) The beer poured deep mahogany coloured and clear. Its head was small and white. Aroma had vanilla, wood, malts and sweetness. Palate was full bodied and warming with medium carbonation. Flavours were wood, vanilla, malts, sweetness, fruitiness and bitterness. Aftertaste was malty, boozy and bitter. An interesting brew but not really a good one.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at BrewDog Stockholm, November 2013.
Amber with a small head. A lot of malt in this one with interesting undertones of hops. Also dried fruit, wood and some notes of hay. The body was full and the mouthfeel oily. The finish was long and with warming alcohol. A beer to sip in peace.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Bottle, from trade with Foffern. Pours a crystal clear deep amber body with a large, long-lasting creamy off-white head. Lovely. Nose is hugely complex: whisky, smoke, bourbon, oak, vanilla, pine, spruce, herbs, dry grass, bubble gum and hints of heather honey, cognac and muscovado sugar. Taste is smooth vanilla and oak tones up front, then loads of fruity American hops, red fruits, white bubble gum, bourbon, whisky, sweet floral tones, muscovado sugar and hints of floral and herbal notes in the back. Full body, soft to medium carbonation. A really stunning piece of art, blending new and old in a very stylish and taste-saturated fashion. Props to BrewDog for still keeping their experimental skills high, despite the otherwise evident turn to mass marketing and brewing in other areas of their operation. This is absolutely gorgeous! :-)

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle in Italy. Clear amber pour, thin off-white head. Aroma is full of whiskey, vanilla, oak, caramel, iodine, peat, sugars and quite boozy. Flavor is very sweet, spicy and very alcoholic. More bitterness comes almost minutes later and the hops end up dominating the finish. Thick body, but just not thick enough for the sweet booze bomb this is. Interesting brew, nonetheless.

330 ml bottle. Copper color with off white head. Aroma of figs, dates, dried fruit, perfume, rum and whiskey. Taste has loads of dried fruit, very sweet, syrup, rum, raisins and whiskey. Alcohol well hidden. Reminds me of barley wine, neither tripel or TIPA. Very pleasant beer
