3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at a recent bottle share... Poured clear golden with a thin, off-white head. Biggest component here was berry and fruit esters along with peat and scotch tones. Some bitterness and sweetness. But again, mainly fruits and whiskey all over the place.

bottle... another horrendous brewdog beer that is up there with zephyr... ugly medium pink, watery, almost no head... smells like bandaids, black sharpie, a little peat and smoke... one of the worst tasting beers I’ve ever had, drinking a bandaid, chemicals, disgusting

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
15th June 2010 rate
Free sample to accompany my AB02 at the CP&K launch (thanks Tom). It pours a crazy red-amber with a quickly dissipating head. The nose is ripe raspberry, smoke from the whisky and some resin. The taste is smoke, peat, concentrated raspberry sweetness, resin, hop-bite, wood and some sourness, with a dry finish. A crazy mash-up of raspberry, smoke and hop. Perhaps a little bit too sweet and rough around the edges for me.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
330ml bottle @ Chriso’s pre-GBBF ’Raise the Roof’ Tasting ’10. A ruddy amber beer with a fine, creamy beige head. Oaky and tart raspberries. Some of the whiskey peatiness from the cask but the Hardcore gets lost in the process. I like raspberries, I like Hardcore & I don’t mind whiskey but together it’s a bit too jumbled. Finishes with a pithy, bittersweet fruitiness. Relatively short finish, light to medium body but crisp and spritzy on the tongue.
