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.

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.

allmyvinyl (3162) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 1, 2013
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!

brystmar (1237) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUL 16, 2013
Smells like stale hops. Minimal contribution from the adjuncts, bitter and murky taste. Not awful. Not good.

From bottle, courtesy of dpjuart. Rye, green peppercorns, floral with pineapple, lemongrass, allspice, and sassafras. Deep coppery amber clear with foamy off-white lacing head. Starts and stays spicy with herbal notes. Smooth and sweet with lasting herbal and bitter finish. Fairly clean after.

DeliriumT (355) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - APR 19, 2013
Pours black with generous head. Aroma is deep caramel and toffee. Flavour has a good kick of honey over a fairly full bodied scotch ale ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
