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.

Patrickctenchi (3446) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - DEC 8, 2012
Pours orange-amber with a tall, tan head. Scent is floral, caramel, malt. Taste is sweet, spicey, honeyed, malty. Very smooth...tingly carbonation. Really nice hop florals and increasing bitter. Quite good.

beer_est_deus (595) - örebro, SWEDEN - NOV 9, 2012
Klar orange röd öl med typ inget skum. Doft: Honungs likör, sommar äng, örter, gräddkola, kaffe karameller. Smak: Hjortron (mycket), honungs likör, gräs, gräddkola, bräntsocker, persika, mineraler. Smak som en blandningen mellan strong ale, barley wine och imperial porter/stout.

Pyrmir (3252) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - NOV 7, 2012
330 ml bottle. Aroma perfume-like. Herbs and metal. Taste: herby, quite bitter. Sweet, but not full bodied (this changed with increased temperature, thou!). At room temp it was almost barley wine-like.

DrSilverworm (6011) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 2, 2012
22.4oz bottle, best by 11-23-12. Shared with friends. Mostly hazy red - amber color, little off-white head. Some loose lace. Smooth, lighter carbonation. Medium to bigger body. Light honey and spice. Caramel malt. Light fruity hop. Little grapefruit. Zesty sweet taste. This is an OK mildly malty-hoppy spice ale. Probably could be better fresher.

UPDATED: OCT 31, 2012 A dark brown to almost black in colour with an off white head. Aroma of coffee, caramel and honey with a flavour to match and a nice smooth finish. Alcohol level gives a nice kick. --- BeerItsNice

garza (567) - Oslo (NO), Caracas (VE), VENEZUELA - OCT 26, 2012
One girl sitting with us said about this beer: "it makes your tongue soft...it would be good to drink this and make out afterward..." Sooooo......pours a very dark redish colour with an off-white head. Floral aroma t first, then develops in notes of honey, caramel and malt. Smooth mouthfeel, caramel and malt in the flavour. Medium sweetness, medium bitterness. Medium body, oily feel, average carbonation and a bit sweet aftertaste. Ok, not big deal.

CanCrusher (600) - Ilirska Bistrica, SLOVENIA - OCT 6, 2012
Bottle. Clear chestnut brown colour with light brown head, that slips into a perfec tcrown. Sweety-bitter aroma of guarana, cola, honey, dark fruits (cherry), caramel, brown sugar. Taste is moderate bitter and turns into heavy bitter aftertaste. Beer is silky smooth and rich. Level of alcohol is pretty high and noticable.

Cool_Bond (1243) - Kung av Öl @ Facebook, SWEDEN - OCT 5, 2012
Smells almost nothing, tastes something between good and evil. The aftertaste is also difficult to assess. But it can not keep left at all. I thought this beer would be tastier, but it was a disappointment. Not happy with this at all.
