Shared a bottle with friends. Deep brown almost black pour with a nonexistent head. Powerful aroma, alcohol and vanilla. Tastes is coffee, dark chocolate, vanilla. Alcohol content is present throughout the whole experience. Definitely a sipper not a gulper.

This is a heavy thick beer, you can taste the whiskey flavors, more similar to a fine port, if i had the money I would drink it in a port glass or brandy balloon after every meal. Tasty, strong and warming.

From bottle #908. Wow, this is a huge beer, well it’s kind of a beer. Huge very complex aroma that hints at how intense the flavours will be, but it lies, this thing grab you by the throat. Pours and looks like a port, thick with no head. The alcohol is very warming, ultra rich flavours keep changing as you sip. Its not an everyday beer but I liked it a lot.

The aroma is so fantastic I’m enjoying it with every sip. Very thick, tasty, and it definitely has a strong Scottish whiskey taste. I’d love to have a small glass every day but unfortunately the price tag won’t let me do this. Well done to the brew dog boys.

When I tasted it I wasn’t so sure that it’s an ale. More like Irish Whiskey. Woody, smokey. Incredibly tough brew - more like Incredible HULK of the craft beer :D Warm feeling afterwards, more like hot.. licorice aftertaste.
Although when I get to know the price - I was shocked. It’s way too expensive. But I’m glad I tried it once.
I loved it but I still don’t think that it’s an ale..

Pre-DLD bottle share in 2014. Pour is deep black with no head. Aroma is of strong alcohol, brown sugar, and tar. Flavor is very smoky with notes of burnt malt, chocolate, cigar smoke, and licorice. Tastes like scotch with some sugar added, better than I expected.
