Bottle shared at BD Shepís - London. Thanks, guys! Pours clear brown with a beige cream head. Big chocolate aroma with striking ginger. Medium sweet with nice chocolate character, more spicy ginger, some mint essence. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Moderately sweet to finish with light earthy bitterness, lasting ginger and cocoa. I really like when cocoa and ginger get mixed in a beer; I just think it works well.

Brewdog Shepherds Bush. Bottle share with Jackie, Simon and David. Opaque dark brown - black beer. Small pale tan head. A nose of potpourri and those nibbles you get waiting for your Indian restaurant takeaway. Palate is soft and airy with superfine carbonation. Smooth dark malts, little cream. Mild spicy floral flavours that follow the nose. Finishes light and soft. A pleasantly mellow spiced Impy that is also light on itís toes. Nice.

Overall a really solid but really weird brew. Tons of ginger and cardamom in the nose and taste. Some vanilla and roast coffee coming through. Worth a purchase if you see it.

Excelente cerveza, cabeza color avellana, profundo color oscuro, aromas intenso a cacao, licor de cafe, como si mordieras un biscocho de chocolate envinado, sensacional paladar robusto de cuerpo, y gran sedosidad, muy recomendable.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, 22oz. It pours a small, dense, firm dark beige head over a next to black body. The aroma has lots of coffee escaping the glass at first, soon getting company by molasses, woody notes and a pleasant spiced touch which somehow leads my thoughs to cloves. Ginger too is pretty easy to spot. Some chocolate as well, but thatís more evident in the flavor. Spices, coffee and molasses are the dominating flavors, both bitterness and alcohol are subdued. Itís full bodied and soft on the palate, very low on warmth considering the ABV. Lasting sweet coffee, molasses and spice finish. A very tasteful one, with a clever use of spices, but Iíd say a 12oz bottle would be sufficient. 140514

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
"Pours a deep sable with a thick, if not too persistent, chocolate-tan head. Roast malt aroma has an overtone of horehound plus notes of caramel and chocolate, plus a hint of yeast. Flavor has bold coffee, roast malt and semi-sweet chocolate notes with underpinnings of caramel and licorice, plus a hint of woody hops. Texture is viscous and smooth, though fizz leaves a bit to be desired. Go berserk in Bombay - or Atlanta, or Detroit, or Toronto, or wherever you are!"

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours an opaque black from the bottle with thin ring of lacy tan brown head that leaves light lace. Aroma has nice spicy notes with earthy tea and an underlying roasty chocolate. Taste follows, more on the curry spice and less of the chocolate, nice bitter coffee notes. The tea comes out more as it warms, was expecting a bit more, but not bad.
