Not bad. A sweet think ans syrupy brew. Nice but not worth more than to satisfy curiosity. :-)

chinchill (3346) - South Carolina, USA - APR 27, 2015
Small sample from a swingtop bottle in Edinburgh. Dark reddish-brown body looks quite thick. Smells much like a barleywine. Tastes like barleywine concentrate. Syrupy. No mistaking high ABV in the mouthfeel. Boozy, but much less so than expected given the extraordinary ABV.

AdiBeer (2414) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 25, 2015
Aroma: toasted malts, coffee, salty, smoked flavours. Appearance: slightly hazy black, no head. Taste: medium sweet. Palate: salty flavours coming up quickly, alcohol, toasted malts, coffee liqueur. Overall: very extreme, interesting, yet nothing I would drink again. Bottle at the brewery, Ellon.

leaparsons (9106) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - APR 24, 2015
Bottle, Brewdog, Leicester. Dark brown with a thin head. Aromas are sticky toffee with smoked ham and Chinese five spice. Earthy with lemon, raisins and toasted malts. Very spicy booze with marzipan and brandy. Flavours are sweet, burnt toffee and raisins with alcohol and coriander burn. Thick on the palate with brandy and leafy hops. Smoky meatiness with honey and lemon. The opposite of a session beer but still surprisingly drinkable. Good.

Bottle. Brown color with no head. Malty aroma with a notes of cherries. Taste like no beer, more similar to some cherry liquor. Warming alcoholic finish.

nihtila (2093) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 19, 2015
Nip from bottle at DogTap. Pours dark brown. Nose is very strong and boozy, sweet chocolate, whisky, vanilla, oak. Taste is also strong, thick, liqueur like, toasted and burnt malts, chocolate, raisin. Beer of itsown style but I still rather take an IS or whisky or portwine.

Wow, nuclear is definitely a great deScription of this brew. Heavy malt flavor like a barely wine, but tastes similar to a port wine. very intense on the pallet, has a very thick consistency, I was thinking molasses. Definitely a sipper.

Part of my 2013 backlog, tried at the Strait and Narrow, Lincoln. Black colour with no head. Alcohol aroma, but i guess thats not a surprise. Flavour has Toasted malt, and chocolate, also vanilla, reminds me of a sherry. Thick heavy on the palate.
