4.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours an almost pitch black colour with a good tan head. Aroma of oak, roasted malts, whiskey, soyasauce and some vanilla and saltyness. Really good smell. Taste is so complex. The first thing that reveals itself is a massive caramel taste. Then the chocolate comes, together with nuts, licorice and oak. The finish contributes with a really smooth vanilla touch which raises the beer even further. It’s obviously full bodied, with low carbonation and a oily mouthfeel. The bitterness in the fiinish is low, but it’s also notable to a certain extent. Overall this is a amazing piece of beer. Some may say it’s a bit out of balance, but I think this suits the beer well.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Appearance is pitch black, with a foamy brown head which leaves a few bubbles. Aroma- loads of boozy sweetness, rich dark chocolate, bourbon, vanilla, Christmas cake, treacle, burnt malt, hint of dark fruit. Taste is rich chocolate, leather, tobacco smoke, espresso coffee, rich chocolate cake, vanilla, whisky, alcohol, oily and sticky mouthfeel, syrupy sweet finish. Intense, a little unbalanced, but still very good.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Negra e licorosa com pouca formação de espuma marrom. Aroma fantástico, açucar mascavo, xarope, malte tostado, whisky, chocolate amargo e baunilha. O sabor reproduz o aroma evidenciando as notas adocicadas com um pouco de madeira e lúpulo. Os 15% de álcool aparece bem discretamente e não prejudica em nada o conjunto. Corpo de médio pra alto, licoroso e aveludado com final longo, adocicado, tostado e maltado. Uma maravilha de cerveja!!!

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at home. Purchased at Brewdog Bristol Summer of 2013. Bottle said drink by 2017. Not sure of the bottling date. Upon opening the bottle was filled right up to the cap. Poured an opaque brown with two fingers of tan head. Aroma is dark fruits and roasted Malts. Flavor follows with a good dose of charred wood. Very sweet almost syrupy. Thick on the mouth. This is a decent beer, but not world class. Had right before a 1014 Goose Island BCS and it was a much much better beer.
