3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cozy, but clear smell; like sweet vegetables and honey. Alcohol-intensive with hints of dark chocolate, prunes and pipe tobacco. The aftertaste is very local in the back end of the palate, and is smoky.

Pours a pitch black body with a beige head. A smoky aroma and a lightly bitter taste. The finish slowly kicks in with hints of coffee and chocolate.

Strong, tastey and delicious. It has a heavy body and a gentle bite. Smell like flowers, but thats a joke before you zaste it.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Black with small tan head. Aroma has roasted malt and milk chocolate. Flavour has more dark roast, a little licorice and sweetness with moderately bitter ending. A touch too sweet for me.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A pitch black oily body covered by a surprisingly well-lasting brown head. Nose has sweet aromas of chokolate, roasted malts, coffee and a hint of liquorice. Taste is sweet with a heavy dry roastiness to it, the finish is bitter. Carbonation is quite low and the palate feels nice and rich. Alcohol presence is there but not in a harsh way. Very nice.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
coloração muito escura, preta, quase sem espuma. Aroma fraco, após mexer a cerveja no copo, aroma ácido e meio azedo.
Sabor de cafe, muito forte. Carregada e alcoólica.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
One of Brewdog’s classics, with pale beige head and very dark burgundy colour, near black. Powerful aroma of cocoa powder, raisins, liquorice, dates, coffee; full and creamy palate, oily, sweet and spicy (liquorice again), increasingly dryer and roasted bitter, concentrated and dense, with warming alcohol in the finish, complex and nowhere astringent. Delightful imperial stout.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
330ml brown bottle poured into a Snifter glass. Appearance is opaque brownish black with a medium sized foamy tan head with good retention. Aroma of chocolate, roasted malts, coffee. Flavours of chocolate, roasted malts, coffee and a hint of vanilla and muscovado. Taste is light-medium sweet and medium bitter. Palate is full bodied, slightly syrupy texture and soft carbonation. BrewDog Riptide is a good, but compared to the breweries other Imperial Stouts, this lacks character and personality, is therefore somewhat forgettable.

Coffee, chocolate, dried fruits and roasted malts in the aroma. Black with a tan head. Medium to heavy sweet and medium bitter. Full body with a soft carbonation. Overall a delicious Stout, smooth in the mouth, rich in flavour and some warming alcohol in the finish.
