4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
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

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.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JAN 31, 2014 Re-rate 31/01/2014. Lot more complexity starting to come out, including the barrel and some Belgian yeast notes. Getting better...
330ml bottle from Appellation Wines - cheers Ash! For all the blurb, we’re in pretty standard US-barley wine or Double IPA territory here. Fresh citrus hop aromas disguise any other subtleties that might be there from the Tripel end of the mix, or even from the barrel aging. I’m not finding it as sweet as some of the other reviewers, and think it’s quite well-balanced, if not ’all that’. Got a few stashed away, so might re-rate if it improves with age.

Fancy 330ml bottle in a box from BrewDog Online Store. Medium orange brown, reasonable head. Big sweet grassy glue aroma. Very sweet whiskey barley sugar flavour. Strong sweet alcohol aftertaste. Not my sort of beer.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle with thanks to BenH! Pours hazy chestnut, small off-white head dissipates to a ring that laces well. Aroma is very oaky, dark sugars, vanilla, toffee, light pine, dates. Flavor is full on sweet, medium bitter, oak, whiskey, pine, a bit of citrus. I am not getting any peaty or smoky flavors though. Full body, creamy mouthfeel. Very, very hot from the ABV. Pretty darn good, but a bit too hot.
