3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
75cl bottle. great looking pour, golden, clear with nice head. aroma has vanilla hint (the whisky is coming through) with fleshy summery fruits, peach, plum, mango. Taste is sharper on the vanilla/whisky, the fruit comes later, with a thin quick alcohol hit as it goes down. An interesting beer, a nice one to try! And with the proceeds going to the RNLI i’m happy i had the chance!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
75cl bottle at CBC Clerkenwell. Many many thanks to Paul for popping this rare treat on his B-Day! It pours a light golden colour with a thin white head and good lacing. Aroma is berries upfront with woody, oaky notes and some peaches. Flavor is thinly hopped, with berries flavours and the barrel aging showing much more. Again berry notes in the finish. Interesting for sure, I liked it.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle shared at my birthday drinks. It pours golden yellow with a medium white head. The nose is whisky, oak, strawberry, raspberry, faint toast and coconut. The taste is faintly tart, strawberry, raspberry, light toast, hay, sweet pale malt, fairly prevalent alcohol, straw, berry ice-cream, candyfloss, wood and mild whisky with a dry, bitter finish. Medium+ body, mild tartness and fine carbonation. I find this still pretty hot really. Fun to try, but I couldn’t drink much of it!

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Rating #2800! Bottle, cheers to Paulo for the pour! The pour’ deep amber with a tiny white head. The nose is knackered sherry, cherry and strawberry fruit compote. Toasted leaves and wood. A touch of sweet marzipan. The taste is quite peppery. Some signs of oxidization. General paper. More cherry and strawberry. Woody finish. I didn’t get much whisky in my sample. Medium body, fine carbonation. Overall, fine, though certainly not in its prime anymore.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Harpoons at the ready, gents! Bottle shared at CBC Clerkenwell during Paul’s Birthday Celebration - London. Thanks to Paul ’Ahab’ Scopey for leading this expedition. Pours clear, yellow-gold, lightly effervescent, with a moderate foamy white head; looks quite fresh for a beer of its vintage. The aroma holds dried citrus fruits, hay, pale malts, notes of white bread. Medium sweet flavor with decent alcohol punch, dry wood, hay, light bitterness, dry pale malts. Medium to full bodied with fine carbonation. Lightly warming finish, slight minerals, further dried pale malts, mild dryness, dried citrus, some hay bitterness, hints of peach and other stone fruits. A novel beer. Certainly fun and interesting to try one of BrewDog’s first ’experimental’ beers. Overall, decent. It does drink fairly well for the ABV.

750ml bottle pours a clear orange with some cloudy white head. Big, strawberry aroma, candy sugar... not much else. Flavor is... strawberries, candy sugar. Medium bodied, sweet finish. Just a strawberry beer, not a whole lot else.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear amber pour with a small white head. Bready oxidation, vegetation, and caramel toffee. Not good at all. Ugh. Thick syrupy palate with thin carbonation.
