4.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draft from BrewDog Shepherd’s Bush opening night on 29 November 2013. Poured black with a dense tan head and good lacing. Aroma of grassy hop, ash, Oxo and possibly mothballs(?). Where the aroma was not super enticing, the mouth feel was absolutely perfect; full and velvety. Massive flavours of dark fruit, roast malt and cinnamon. Finish was espresso, liquorice, port, burnt grain and molasses. Super complex flavours, shame slightly about some odd aromas, but overall this was a spectacular beer.

On tap at Bellwoods, Toronto. Black, tan head. Nose is licorice, coffee, vanilla, wood. Flavour is vanilla in the front coffee in the back. Thick dusty palate. Great stuff, love the vanilla aspect especially. EDIT: Unbeknownst while rating, this is apparently my 500th Canadian beer. How cool is that?

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a completly dark colour with a big tan head that leaves a good lacing the glass. Aroma of licorice, coffee, dark chocolate and spruce. Taste is so balanced and round it’s hard to describe. Coffee, licorice, spruce and leaves. A long, quite bitter finish. Full body and soft mouthfeel. Supprisingly easy to drink. Just a awesome beer, one of the best ones I’ve ever tried.
