3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampled at Chris_O’s Shindig; Aug. 2007: Dark fruits, toffee, port aroma; brady notes; fairly alcoholic; mocha maltiness; tangy finish; rather astringent. Not a fan.

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.

3.8 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.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.

33cl in bottiglia. Pare che la Brewdog non sbagli un colpo, soprattutto con le scure. Ottima.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. This was really nice. It’s a good gateway to some of their more extreme stouts. Worth a try.

Asskicking good beer. A bit too dark for my taste, but considering the fact that I am not an beer expert, it was sure great to taste it!
