Bottled@Black Heart (rockpub around the corner from Brewdog Camden). After ordering all the big abv bottles at Brewdog Camden, it was probably the perfect thing to go and order a big bottle of beer in this cosy pub... Reddish brown colour with a small off-white head. Aroma is leathery, sour wooden, with some sweet malts and mild earthy notes. Flavour is rather similar in good balance. My notes have a few more sentences added by the end of the bottle, but the coding is too hard for me to interpret...

Hazy dark red - brown beer. Big cream - tan head. Light lactose malt on the nose. Palate is crispy and semi dry. Creamy malt with robust hop bitterness but not much hop fruit except a trace of grapefruit. Whisper of bubblegum. Semi dry finish with strong bitter linger. Too much bitterness without any hop fruit.
