A nice tasty interesting beer. Noted slight tingle on the tongue from the peppercorns but would have liked a bit more. Solid beer just not giving enough of that spice for me.

Bottle. Unique beer. The companies description is spot on other than the chocolate & caramel- did not notice those flavors. The peppery spice finish is awesome.

341ml bottle for £3 from Brewdog’s Online Shop:
Not a bad beer at all and certainly a lot better than I was expecting given the aroma of the beer, it definitely wasn’t a classic but I did enjoy the spiciness to it and its fairly unique flavours. While it’s not a beer I’m likely to pick up again it is one it was a decent beer and a very spicy one at that.

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!
