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.

Tap at Biero. Masterpiece. Aromas of caramel, biscuit, grass, apricot, and butter. Taste has a sweet start, with bitterness taking over for a very long finish. Palate is creamy, with a medium-to-full body. Amber, with a frothy head.

OMFG! Smells awesome. Palate is silly smooth, like liquid chocolate. Taste is very similar with a rich bitter kick at the end. This is powerful and exceptional. Yet smooth and comforting. Pudding beer. Order it if you see it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nothing normal about this beer. The caffeinated African Kola nut and Brazilian Guarana expedite your journey to joy. Aroma is somewhat mellow compared to the palate pull...honey, caramel, pear, Brazil nut, strawberry, and apricot. This isnít a fruity beer, but the essence is there and welcome. Brew Dogís stock price just went up.

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.

Ethereal (2421) - Los Angeles, California, USA - AUG 9, 2008
Bottle at GBBF 08. Perfect amber colouration with a small magnolia head. Great hoppiness on the nose, balanced by a honey note. Likewise, in the mouth, all the ingredients come into play to give rise to a complex and interesting flavour. The palate is full and overall I found this to be a great beer.

Mmmm. Itís a spiced IPA. Like an IPA mixed with a Christmas ale. Hazy amber with a beautiful off-white heavy lacing head. Aroma of spices, floral hops, grass and some caramel malt. Taste is a little sweet, but dominated by a spicy bitterness. Very nice.

UPDATED: MAY 28, 2012 33cl. Bottle. Poors clear amber with white head. Good Carbo. Aroma is flowers, honey, bread, hearbs. Taste an awesome bittersweet, honey, fruits, hint of spices/hearbs. Mouth-feel oily. This is a great beer I love the taste and aroma, to bad itís the last batch.

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

UPDATED: NOV 30, 2008 Bottle(s) thanks to martin! Pale and richer malts, fruity and somewhere between floural and spice. Brewdog grassy yeasty character. Amarillo hop is key, the other unusual flavours are pritty subtle. Alc is hidden and its quite drinkable. RERATE: Like alot of the brewdog beers its developed with age in the bottle. Its really tasty, spicey, hoppy, balanced yet has a nice sweetness too it(probably from the spice) and its dangerously drinkable. No wonder i just bought 3 more online!

"Ale brewed with honey, kola nut, poppy seed and guarana." 24.4oz brown glass pry-top. Batch 196. BB 03/03/10. Appearance: The most head Iíve gotten from a BrewDog beer yet: 1/4 inch and fast fading bone white head. Clear orange/amber. Nose: Caramel covered nuts and seeds, forest floor, dried orange peel. Complex and subtle. Palate: Medium-bodied and somewhat bitter. Guarana! Like a tropical-fruit-infused cream soda ale. Best way I can describe it. Some black-pepper-like spiciness, and some dusty hops on the long finish. Finish is dominated by this creamy guarana. Notes: This beer is somewhat subtle, and if you donít know what guarana tastes like, you should go to your local ethnic food grocer and see if the have a Guarana Soda from Brazil. Itíll give you an idea. Yum!
