wyzzywyz22 (2108) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - DEC 19, 2013
Bottle from Brew Dog Shop, shared with Nick. Poured a deep dark brown with a slight tan head. Aroma consisted of roasted malts, choc and a little smoke. Slipped down smoothly with similar characteristics to the nose and some emerging hop bitterness. Well above average stout that is very drinkable.

När jag läsar min recension av ölen upptäcker jag att jag inte var helt nykter när jag genomförde den. Med det sagt tyckte jag om ölen, den var god och intressant med sköna inslag av sötma och syra i smaken. Men av recensionen att dömma verkar jag ha varit mer intresserad av att häva, än analysera, ölen. Slutsats: jag är mänsklig.
