2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Not as alternative as BrewDog likes to describe it. Decent black lager, or scwarzbier if you like, but nothing special. Beautiful dark color, very sparsely carbonized, mild aroma with hints of flowers and metal and a sweetish taste with some bitterness and notes of coffee, caramel and dark chocolate

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle 33cl. Black with a beige head (very short). Malty nose with caramel. A bit flat, not impressive taste. Miss body and richness. Suttle bitter finish, which not lasts very long. A bit disappointing beer from this brewery.

1.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Pours a clear black, with no head. The aromas are mostly roast malts, cocoa and liquorice, and a slightly sour metallic aroma. The taste is sweet, and low on the bitterness. The mouthfeel is a bit thick, and there’s almost no carbonation. This beer is a lot more boring than Brew Dog’s "radical image" makes it appear, and if you’re in the mood for a generic dark beer with a roasted aroma and not much else, you might as well go for a Guinness, which costs less.
