3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Nose like superintense barleywine - hoppy, caramel malty. Its quite warming, but ABV goes quite well to this BEER (underline). Lovely maltiness, nice that hops arent drowned in ABV and still delivers awesome fruitiness, dried fruits
Quite intense sweetness with solid bitterness. Thick and bit sticky. I loved Penguin, but was quite sceptic before approaching this one, but. .its quite awesome. Love it.

Aroma - fruity, intense alcohol, malty, caramel. Flavor is intense and complicated. Very strong, manly beer. Although very expensive.

Bottle from Mane Liquor. I’m not going to lie, I struggled to drink my third of this. Really struggled. It’s like sticky sweet muscat. Booze is huge. No good

Bottle from mane liquor. Pours dark brown with no head. Lacing is JDizz worthy. Pours like a whiskey. Aromas of booze, honey and peat. Fuck.

from BrewDog’s online shop - translucide brown beer with no head retention; apparent alcohol in the nose; aroma of cognac, caramel, nuts and minerals; very salty, oily and without carbonation; late and huge bitterness, dry and very long salty/bitter finish of earth, caramel and with strong warming alcohol notes - pleasant would be exagerated ... really hard to rate this stuff

Depp amber to red colour. Intensive dried fruit and raisin sweet aroma. TAste is overpowered with similar theme - dried fruits and caramel, similar to strong bock but with higher alcohol backbone. Balanced with some hoppines. Still its a very interesting and good beergeek example:)

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at brewdog Nottingham. Pours a thick, syrupy dark orange/brown wi the a few small bubbles on the surface. Aroma is alcohol, caramel and more alcohol. Taste...the texture is similar to medicine and it coats your tongue. You get a little heat from the alcohol. Burnt oak finish. Very interesting and worth trying.
