1.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Aroma: A surprising hop aroma, followed by fuel grade alcohol made to run jet engines, almost enjoyable.
Appearance: Light coppery amber, slight carbonation.
Taste: Lots of hops followed up by palate dismembering levels of aclohol, in a bad way. The bitterness isn’t really noticable.
Palate: I one time tasted a tiny drop of hop extract, it does similar things to your palate as this "beer". Destroys the mouth and leaves you with an unpleasant feeling that this was a bad idea.
Overall: Better than Tactical Nuclear Penguin, but not by much. This is sadly mislabeled as "beer" when it has more in common with jet fuel ethanol. The BrewDog guys need to learn how to make good beer instead of this unenjoyable gimmicky crap.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma: caramel, massive alcohol, bread malts. Appearance: clear, dark amber, no head. Taste: very salty. Palate: saltiness continues, dry, warming from the alcohol, sharp bitters, grappa. Overall: hmm, this is an extreme, interesting, yet nothing I would drink again. Bottle at the brewery, Ellon.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Pours amber in colour, no head of course. Leaves nice marks on the glass, like whisky. In aroma alcohol, some caramel notes. In taste similar, alcohol + malt with some hoppy bitterness. Very difficult to rate it as a beer, it is far worse than any alcohol beverage you can drink for that price and on the other hand yuo can buy few world class beers instead of it. To sum it up - interesting but not worth the money.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Kolor bursztynowy, klarowne, brak piany, brak wysycenia, wyglada jak rasowy destylat. W aromacie bardzo intensywny slod karmelowy, ale taki swiezo wrzucony do gara - chleb, karmel, troche sliwek, slowem pachnie jak zacier, jest tez troche alkoholu, ale nie jest go az tyle by mozna stwierdzic rzeczywista zawartosc alkoholu - pilem RISy, ktore mialy cztery razy mniej alkoholu, ale zalatywaly nim cztery razy bardziej niz to. Jezeli doleje sie troche wody, zaczynaja wychodzic chmiele i przypomina to juz bardziej imperial IPA niz destylat. Konsystencja jest bardzo gesta, kisielowata, a nawet kluchowata, prawdopodobnie najgestsze piwo jakie pilem do tej pory. W smaku od poczatku uderza przeogromna ilosc chlebowo-karmelowego slodu (jest bardzo slodkie), ktory szybko miesza sie z wysoka goryczka, ktora z charakteru jest mocno ziolowa i zywiczna, ale jednak mimo tej goryczki piwo stoi wyraznie po slodkiej stronie mocy. Alkohol jest, ale absolutnie nie objawia sie tutaj jak 41%, odczuwalnie jest go maksymalnie z 15%.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a clear bronze with no head. Aroma is packed with mango and tropical fruits. Tropical fruits are picked up on the taste rather quickly bt soon the alcohol heat/burn overwhelms everything. Great as a spirit and as an example of brewing achievement but apart from aroma it does not possess much beer qualities

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: MAR 28, 2015 A nip at Brewdog Edi. Pours dark ruby. Aroma is like concentrated IPA, strong sweet caranel malts and fruity hops. Taste is like liquor, still reminds of the concentrated IPA. In absolute terms it is quite horrible but just a thing to try. Points are just something.

Share thanks to petersluhale. Sweet, huge booze, tons of caramel, some dark fruit. Brown color. Huge booze flavor, straight alcohol, and then a face full of caramelized molasses. Warming alcohol (obviously). Lingering heat.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
375 ml bottle sample thanks to phaleslu. Pours a murky amber brown color with a few scant bubbles that coats the glass and lasts for seemingly hours. The aroma exploded from the glass even though there was no carbonation. Big, boozy, caramel, toffee, molasses, dark fruit, and wood. The flavor is very similar; big caramel, molasses, dark fruit and intense ethanol booze, not something I would have wanted to pursue, but I am happy that I was able to try this finally.
