Thanks to my buddy Matt for bringing this over. Pours viscous black with no head or carbonation. Nose of smoked meats and scotch. A great sub for scotch and a cigar!

Leighton (14389) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 16, 2010
Bottle at the Ginger Man, NYC. Pours reddish-brown with a slight, tan head. Strong roasted malt aroma with smoke, peat and booze. Flavor is intense and fairly sweet, with more dark malts, some caramel. Full bodied with almost no carbonation. Finishes with some boozy burn and lingering smoke and peat notes. Pretty good.

gunnfryd (12622) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - SEP 8, 2010
bottle at Patricks. Dark amber colour with no head. Aroma is alcohol, coffee, heather, whiskey. Flavour is smoked malt, coffee, heather, whiskey, alcohol. Alcoholish finish. Intense imperial stout. Nearly too much in my opinion.

buzzoven (376) - JAPAN - SEP 6, 2010
Sampled this nuclear drink at the Brewdog meeting at Craftheads back in feb. 2010. Truly a mindblowing brew. Difficult to classify as "beer" but works well as a bridge between whiskey and beer. Very very strong alcohol flavors...but fun to share and sip!

Darkbrown color, no head. Whisky, smoke, tar, vanilla in the aroma. Also some chocolate and toffee. Flavour is whisky, chocolate, toffee and vanilla. Medium to fullbodied, very soft carbonation. Fun to try!

Nose is like a beef jerky liqueur, taste is hot, hurts the lungs, very smoky, complex, should suck but is actually very damn good.

(Bottle, batch 5, courtesy of thirdeye11) Pours a brown body with crazy legs. Aroma of butter, caramel, wood, diesel fuel, smoke, tar, and butterscotch. Flavor of wood, alcohol, ash, and roasted malt with a dry finish.

berlinoise2go (669) - NORWAY - AUG 20, 2010
Sample at Řl og Mat 2010, Oslo. Rich herbal and malty nose. Alcoholic, herbal taste. I don’t really associate this with beer, it’s more like Fernet Branca with a dash of malt. Intriguing though.

RyansRatings (43) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - AUG 20, 2010
Amber golden colour, coppery hue. Still. An enormous nose; polished boards, raisin, spice, cream, cocoa. Epic. Enticing. The spicy, hot palate delivers warm dried fruit flavours. Very hot, prickly and raisiny. Lengthy, hot raisiny, spicy mulled wine aftertaste. Fails to match the nose. I don’t know what to make of it. If indeed it is a beer, then it certainly raises the bar, in terms of interest. However, if distillation makes it something else, it’s at best an average, interesting spirit.
