1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
I tried this beer on January 17, 2011 at "The Beerbistro" in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The beer was a translucent golden red with no head. The aroma was alcohol, pine, and hops. The mouthfeel was full bodied with no carbonation and burned going down. The flavour was citrusy hops and tons of alcohol.

1.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle from brewdog online shop. Amber colour, tiny off-white head. Aroma is extremely hoppy, intense bitter, pine, Feigling, sweet orange, alcohol. Flavour is extremely bitter, pine hops, strong malty. Burning finish.
Except the aroma, it does not work for me. Maybe I’ll make a marinade with the remaining stuff.

I had this beer at Churchill’s in San Marcos during the New Brew Thursday 1st Anniversary Party. I just didn’t enjoy this beer; it seemed tart, but not in a good way.

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.

Bottle at craig’s. Pours a nice clear ruby red, no head, flat. Alcohol burns my nose on the aroma, musty cheesy hops. Taste’s like a mouthfull of dust, horrible, musty, dusty, brutal. Big alcohol burn. A shocking beer

1.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Hazy golden brown color with no head or lacing on the glass. Aroma of honey, some rauch, nail polish remover, apple, and alcohol. Taste of vanilla up front with chemicals, and dry, sharp alcohol. This was pretty bad.

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bottle shared by jtclockwork at the jimmack Invitational ’10. Holy booze bomb Batman. My rating should stop right there but I will continue. Poured a clear lifeles, headless brown body. Aroma is soooooo boozy that it’s ridiculous. There are some hidden traces of honey, maple syrup and citrus. The body is hotter then any alcohol I have ever tried and the only redeeming quality was that there was a hint of carbonation to signify that this was supposed to be a beer. Amazingly after the gasoline flavor passes you can actually pick up some notes of hops, citrus rind, wood, caramel and toffee. Maybe this is a ber after all, a bad never should be made again beer but a beer none the less.
