Bottle@TastingSession. The aroma is very alcoholic, like brandy with quite some apple, raisin and stuff. No head at all, not even a little fizzy head. Flavour is strange. Starts off as brandy or something but has this unbalanced character due to the hop and mainly malty bitterness. The palate is horrible. Sharp and alcoholic like a very young whisky. Rating it like I would rate a beer isn’t fair, I understand that. Rating it on it’s means I really dislike it. Rating it as a liqueur or spirit still doesn’t give it any credits.

Quite a nice aroma of port, sherry, red wine, stone fruits. Dark as night with no head. Taste starts malty and sweet, develops to some caramel and then BOOM, burnt paper, char, ash, smoke, accompanied by a huge bitterness. The finish on this beer is brutal and punishing. Nice to say i’ve tried it, but its just too much.

Butelka zakupiona w firmowym sklepie BrewDoga w Londynie. Degustacja z kieliszka 0,1 ml. Gesty likier. Piany oczywi?cie brak, brak wysycenia. W zapachu mocny alkoholowy likier owocowy. Dodatkowo karmelu smaku rozgrzewaj?cy równie? lakierów posmak, s?odk? czekolada i ciemne owoce. 1 shot w zupe?no?ci wystarczy. Wi?cej nie da si? tego wypi? :)

Bottle. Pours dark amber in colour, sticky, no head. Aroma of cherries, caramel, some vanilla. In taste caramel and cherries with strong and long bitterness in the finish, not pleasant.

A ’shot’ at Brewdog in Leeds. Tasty and dry, but not surprisingly more of a spirit than a beer.

MarcoDL (3382) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 7, 2015
Sample at beertemple. Copper red pour. Strong aroma of booze, vanilla and glue. Taste has caramel, vanilla and licorice at first, but then the strong booze kicks in and takes over. This is a gimmick.

Flaska på Örebro ÖoW. Kolsvart med brunt skum. Tung doft med soja, choklad och karamell. Värmande sprit med söt smak och även lite syrligher.

Not for feint hearted, but perfect in place of a glass of port or whiskey at the end of the night

Bottle sample @ Briljant, Haarlem. Sweet, boozy aroma with chocolate and licorice, dark fruits, light iodine. Taste is sweet, boozy, aftertaste of alcohol, iodine, hint of chocolate somewhere in the aftertaste. Not bad.
