Shared with the delicious Domnik and delectable Danyul. Relatively acceptable and more of an experiment than a gimmick. I liked it, warming and went down fairly smooth. Hard to rate with numbers.

Bottle at Brewdog Brum. The smell burnt my nostril hairs. To me (any road), this did taste like a beer. Albeit a very strong one indeed. Seemed to evaporate in my throat, but flavour was loooong. Not bad.

Bottle, from Brew Dog’s grim Manchester pub. From notes. Nose cream, fudge, toffee, caramel, spices, slight brandy. Taste, caramel, hops brown sugar. Alcohol burn high.
Overall, the nose is spectacular, the taste less so. Interesting to try

No head, the body is heavy and oily. The smell is of hops, alcohol and rum. So much that burns the nose. Taste of rum, heavy hops and oil. Drink it as a spirit rather than as a beer. Excellent.

3.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a deep amber, with no head. The aroma is very intense, very sweet, lots of dried and candied fruits, raisins, apricot, a bit hoppy. Very similar to port wine. The taste is the same, lots of candied fruits and alcohol and a bit of hops. It gives a burning sensation that lasts. Great aroma and taste but dissapointing aftertaste.

Interesting curiosity, tastes like beer, not like any kind of spirit I have tasted. Malty, rich. Surprisingly not very alcoholic taste.
