3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours dark brown with a very small head.
Aroma is very rich with sweet roasted malt showing dark chocolate, toast, and espresso.
Flavours are similarly rich, but not as sweet, and include more espresso and burnt toast, followed by a lingering roasty finish with a prominent, but not sharp, bitterness.
Light body and carbonation work well with the clean lager flavours.

Nice balanced and soft flavour with plenty of black aniseed grip. Nice and unstated but good. Smooth. Like oil to look at.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Came in a big box BrewDog sent me for buying 20 of their beers at Sainsburys.
Pours black with virtually no off whit ehead. Nutty, slight coffee smell with some wine and red fruit notes. Taste is much the same with some chocolate and tiny bitter coffee. Clean, fresh, but a little thin and watery. Not BrewDog’s best, but not a bad beer.

Bottle 33cl. Dark almost black with beige medium lasting head. Aromas is roasted malt with some hints of chocolate (and anis?). Taste is more roasted malt and again some chocolate, but a bit too thin. I like that it is an organic beer.

servita priva di schiuma,leggermente affumicata,leggera e gradevole.
si sente molto sia il malto che l’orzo,ma soprattutto il caramello.
l’unica nota negativa,è che purtroppo non si trovi cosi facilmente!!!

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Beer pours a dense brown, nearly black body with a slight off white colour on the top, not thick or lasting. Aroma showed a slight citrus character and roasted malt. Taste is of roasted malt, slight chocolate tones as well. Balanced with some coffee notes on the finish.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark brown with mahogany hues and a very small off-white head that settles fast and leaves small lacings.
Smell of dark malts, smoke, wood, smoked ham, toffee, hints of chocolate, caramel and brown sugar. The smell is decent, some aromas are quite nice, especially the gentle smoky touch, but the sweetish components of sugar and caramel are a bit too much.
Taste is not as pleasant. It’s rather sweet with malty flavors of caramel and toffee to the fore. Mild semi-smoky aromas and notes of wood. Slightly burnt character. The same disturbing character of brown sugar appears here as well though. The finish is mildly bitter with a quick flare of hops and roasted malts.
Medium body with a rather smooth texture. Semi-dry finish.
A decent beer. It get quite pointless after a while. The best thing about this beer is the artwork on the label.

Rostad i tonen, fyllig kropp, brett spektrum av smaker. Balansen är inte helt hundra, sensationerna är inte särskilt jämnt fördelade; det är framför allt eftersmaken som är kraftig, medan det omedelbara intrycket, första kontakten, är av det mer utspädda slaget.
