3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, bought @ Skjold Burne, Aarhus.
Gusher. Pours deep deep brown, bordering on black. Staying, frothy, light fizzy, beige head. Aroma has cherries, cranberries, chocolate, deep caramel, some lactic notes. High carbonation, fine creamy mouthfeel. Flavour is sweet, caramel, chocolate. Raisins and a slight lactic touch with some metallic off-notes from the carbonation. Vinious and a bit warming. Okay, but not worth the money.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Brewdog Bar Aberdeen. It pours darkest brown (near black), with a foamy beige head. The nose is toffee, caramel, treacle, brown sugar, salted liquorice and chlorine. The taste is caramel, aniseed, malt vinegar, smoke, toffee, vanilla, salted liquorice, treacle and butterscotch, with a rich, sickly-sweet finish. It’s full bodied and has average carbonation. Interesting, but far too sweet for me.
