Bottle. Light hazy deep copper liquid with small to medium off-white head. Aroma of raw sugar, toffee, black pepper, syrup and dried fruit. Taste is light sweet and light bitter with notes of pumpernickel, dried fruit and some pepper. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Pretty nice, pepper is an interesting addition.

Bottle in Brewdog Glasgow. Ruby with a thin off white head. The taste is fruity with lots of peppery spice that leaves a burn on the tongue. Different.

Pours a fairly clear copper with a small creamy off white head. Aroma is chocolate, caramel, peppery, and kinda perfumy. Flavour is med-high spicy, peppercorns mixes with rye, light chocolate, caramel, mild bitterness and overall just a nice warmth!

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Thanks to cfrancis for this one. Pours a clear medium brown with a small soapy brown head. Aroma of caramel, light chocolate, sweet malts and light perfumy esthers. Taste is caramel, sweet malts up front with some spiciness from the rye and then the peppercorns take over and provide a light tingling sensation on the tongue and then into the throat. Notes of nuts present too but the spiciness of the peppercorns is balanced delicately and adds nicely to the spicy rye. Great beer!

Bottle. Clear brown color, good white head. Aroma of caramel malt, pepper and other spices. Flavour: first some caramel malt, then comes the pepper. Strong and good. Great pepper finish. Really surprising. I like it. Only drawback, I find the body too thin.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Amber light brown. Pretty nice fresh, light roasted, peppercorns, amber slight bready malts. Intriguing. Soft med bodied. Malts, spices and some peppercorn heat in the finish. The aroma was a lot better than flavour. Gets a bit too spicy-xmassy-herbal, loved the clean peppercorns in the aroma. Nice to see another one of these. Hope I’ll get to try more soon.. .

Bottle. Pours amber/brown with not much head. Aroma is spicy for sure though I cannot make out peppercorns. I get brown sugar and mellow, slightly warming peppercorn in the taste. Medium body, a little caramel malt balance. Too much for me but I like the effort!
