3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(Botle, purchased at Tate Modern, London, a couple of years ago) Amber colour with brief, bubbly head. Fruity, spicy nose with notes of toast, red fruit, orange peel, tea, spices and slightly burnt, Madeira-like aromas. Fruity, spicy taste with toast, caramel, red fruit, tea and orange peel. Medium body, fairly dry, with a moderate, spicy bitterness. Weird, but quite decent.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A complete surprise to find this waiting for me on my first visit to the Tate Modern in ’10. Immediately took it outside and drank it on the lawn. Probably would’ve benefited from a bit of a chill, but the grass and citrus suited the day. A bit of residual spicing as well. Maybe vanilla.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(Bottle at Chris & Ruth, huge thanks) Very seldom I get to taste so spicy brew - or not spicy but so strongly flavoured. The main flavour was some sour berry, its flavour was somewhere between lingoberry and cranberry. The beer isn’t among the best ones BrewDog has produced but nevertheless a nice experiment.
