2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
12 oz bottle and served in Bells tulip: Pours a ruddy pale brown with a lovely frothy off-white head which left very good lace upon the glassware. The aroma at first hit me with hairspray and band-aid but those esters quickly vamoosed leaving heavy wood and caramel vapours in the wake. Lemony, plum and raisin fruity notes along with a dash of peat and char. Damn it, those same medicinal and chemical notes I found at first on the nose are still hanging around the palate. This time they are not going anywhere. The taste is like a cheap scotch with a blend of a strong ale. Almost no bitterness left and that is really needed. Whatever Nelson Sauvin hops were here have long vacated the premises. That same band-aid character is even found on the mouth feel, harsh and medicinal. This beer is an utter failure on so many levels, big brew for the sake of being big. Much like Brew Dog Smokehead Stout you can go too far with the Scotch overtone... I dislike this is an understatement.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Di colore mogano, torbida; la schiuma è biancastra, inizialmente di buona presenza, che però svanisce rapidamente. L’aroma è fumoso, con note immediate di torba; malto e odori che portano il pensiero al whiskey. In bocca non si discosta molto dalle percezioni olfattive; vanta un sacco di torba e fumo, con caramello e malto. Il corpo è abbastanza pieno. La bevuta risulta abbastanza difficoltosa a causa del forte gusto affumicato e di torba; che persistono anche nel finale.

Bitch Please foam is poor and offers lots of fruity aroma. Strong fruity and winey taste the plum, raisin, peach, prunes and sweet sherry tones unite really nice. There is absolutely no hop track and it is a very elegant and delicate barley wine.

Bottle, batch 96. The pour is a muddy hazel color, looks like river water. The aroma is off, can get the whiskey for sure, also get notes of charcoal. The taste is kinda harsh. Carries that charcoal aroma over to the taste which is not a good thing. Was expecting more.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle with Guinn and Pete at Guinn’s house. Pours a light brown golden with a thin off white head. Aroma is sweet candy, smokey peat, and some maltiness and a floral perfume. Weird. Flavor follows and is odd. Not very pleasant. Some alcohol. Not clearly beer flavors in this. Muddled. Too much going on. But interesting. Bottle picked up at Brewdog Bristol in the summer 2013.
