Bottle@Voldby Brewdog tasting. Black, no head, thick lacings on the glas. Instense aroma of whiskey, smoke, oak and booze. Taste is like aroma with some dark dried fruit added. Interesting and fun to try, tastes pretty good, but not really what i call a beer

15$/1oz. Aroma of smoked malts, wood, coffee and wine. It feels like scotch/wine/imperial stout hybrid, but not as intense as I anticipated. Taste is closer to scotch or wine that beer. You really can feel the Speyside saltiness. The palate is the major flaw in this otherwise very intriguing and enjoyable beer. The mouthfeel is thin and quite sticky, far from the richness of a worldclass spirit. Gets few points for originality but still a too expensive and cool tick.

gnoff (9417) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - OCT 16, 2010
Bottle from Rotary Pub, Göteborg. Shared between 7 of us, which was more than enough. On October 9, 2010.
Clear dark brownish red color, no head. Salty, vinous scent. Sweet, intensly bitter, very very salty taste. Long alcohol and salty aftertaste. Warming to burning alcohol.. Smooth mouthfeel, high bitterness. Char coal, tar, smoke, salt, and really not good at all.
If sold similar to Underberg bottles perhaps would be perceived better?

Sampled at Brewdog dinner at beerbistro. In terms of the brewdog crazy strong beers, I liked this one better than the Bismarck. Dark reddish-brown colour with zero head. Aroma is alcohol, coffee, and strong whisky notes. Flavour is smoked malt, coffee, heather, whiskey, alcohol. Alcoholic finish. Intense imperial stout. Like the Bismarck, to be drank like a scotch instead of a beer, but intriguing.

ekstedt (6319) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - OCT 9, 2010
Bottle (33 cl) shared with some dudes at Rotary Pub, Göteborg, Sweden. Dark reddish brown, no head. Strong harsh charcoal and smoke aroma, with heavy alcoholic notes. Extreme unpleasant bitterness. Hugely undrinkable.

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 (17230) - 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.

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.

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!

Ljunkan (530) - NORWAY - SEP 4, 2010
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!
