Difficult beer to rate, because of the lack of comparable brews. High viscosity and taste like whisky. Liquirice and hoppy. No carbonation.

Draught at Brewdog Edinburgh. Pours like a ruby whisky. Super malty aroma. Really surprised that it actually tastes like a beer rather than a spirit. Loads of burnt orange. Very smooth.

2/21/15. Sampled during RBWG 2015. Small sample thanks to Homer321 via phaleslu. Brown pour. Huge booze aroma, hints at citrus, mint, and lots of caramel. Rich flavor, boozy as all hell, as expected, mild citrus, mint, pine, but I’m really searching beyond all the booze. Essentially a liquor. Glad to try, but definitely something to sip and share.

had when it was the strongest beer out there - split up a bottle 4 ways. Glad we did. A nice experience but harder to drink than say, a Utopias which is better crafted and a better sipper. This is slightly citrusy booze, resemblimg whiskey more than "Imperial IPA". Cool, but not worth the price.

This is Brewdog pushing the borders, expanding the definition of beer while remaining loyal to it at the same time. A successful experiment if you ask me. Get together with 4 good friends, get a bottle and split it to 5 glasses. Drink slowly, the way you would if the drink was a hoppy spirit. Actually, it is.
