COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our special export-strength lager is brewed with the finest miso, 100% Sorachi Ace hops and sky blue Scottish spring water, then conditioned with hand-toasted walnuts. Finally, we age it on real apples in Bourbon barrels for a smooth, rich, satisfying flavor. Perfect for fishing or camping, watching the game, or relaxing at home, enjoying the exquisite solace of self-imposed isolation from an increasingly disjointed reality. Long time BrewDog friend and chef, Tim Anderson, Masterchef 2011 winner, collaborated with us to produce this export strength lager.

KansaiBeerLvrs (1341) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAY 5, 2013
11.3% from Rakuten. It pours a dark brown with virtually no head. A bit of wine, chocolate aroma. The flavor is a bit like a tripel or quadruple but on a dark malt base which gives you a mild roast coffee/chocolate taste. Easy to drink with some warming. A pretty good beer but at around 1000 yen a bottle too pricey. I just love the name & the label!

330ml Bottle from Brewdog.com (£5.49):
Strong chocolate aroma with lots of licorice and rich malts as well as some sweetness and a oak like, light whiskey smell. It is quite light and I could detect some vanilla too.
Black with the slightest of red tinges shinning through and a very thin and bubbly, off-white to brown coloured head that more of a patchy lacing.
Rich and chocolaty with a lot of alcohol coming through as well as some strong licorice flavours and a lot of grain. There is some chocolate malts and an earthy spice taste to the beer along with that lingering alcohol feel.
Medium to full bodied and very spicy with a rich, alcohol laced middle. Carbonation is almost non-existent and there is some grain and rich bitterness too.

Not a bad beer, although the fact that is measures in at well over ten percent means it’s not going to be one I have very often if at all again. It was a nice beer and highly drinkable but it was one that your really have to savour and take your time over. Pretty good although nothing spectacular.
