COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Filtered.
Previous sold as Speed Ball.
A strong ale, brewed with guarana, Californian poppy, kola nut and Scottish heather honey. A conspiracy of trans-continental ingredients infused with some devastatingly BrewDog imaginative thinking.

maple booze and caramel aroma...dark brown liquid with beige thin head...tastes spicy up front with that sweet caramel quality at the end..i get the honey but theres a straw candy flavor in there also,along with the maple sweetness I like it..creamy and smooth on the palate..overall I don’t know what you call this it’s not like any brown or scotch ale I’ve had and its balanced toward the malty side but it’s good and warming would make a terrific dessert beer

Beerheart65 (895) - Pori, FINLAND - JAN 12, 2014
Murky mahogany with bit ruby, ultra short head. Caramel malt and hoppiness, bit burnt toffee, alcohol evident. Medium body, bitter with roasting, sweet, long bitter roastrd finish, bit pepper and other spices, herbs also, nuanced strong flavors. Interesting one, especially flavors.

From the old notes, so this is not a full rating more just a mark to myself that I have tried this one. About the beer: thought it was rather nice with honey, cocoa and spices dominating the flavor.

Poured from a bottle. The appearance was great, looked deep amber in the glass. Generous head. Flavour caramel and a very toasted feel. Not much fruityness happening.

I remember this well from when Brewdog Edinburgh opened. I’m glad they retired it, as it smelt like bad homebrew, and tasted much the same. New dogma is much better!

Smells like stale hops. Minimal contribution from the adjuncts, bitter and murky taste. Not awful. Not good.

Bottle from a long time ago. Pours brown/red with off white head, thin and rimming. Nose is caramel and astringent. Floral caramel and small bitter.
