3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft. Pours murky brown with just a touch of tan head. Aroma is boozy, barrel-y, and bold. Taste is the same. Just overwhelms the palate with the "hot" alcohol presence, woody tones from the barrel, and some milder chocolate and roasty notes. Not sure I could do more than a glass of this.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle picked up from the Brewdog online shop, consumed at Isobels, Eardisley, Herefordshire, Friday 25th July 2014 Pours black, but its too dark outside for me to determine the colour of the head, a little chocolate. Easy drinking, smooth and alcohol shows but not too much. Its good but maybe not quite as good as Iíd hoped. A6 A4 T7 P4 Ov13 3.4

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A black beer with a medium and light brown head. The aroma is powerfull, roastiness, sweetness, hint of vanilla, some fruits, and also hint of alcohol in the background. Taste is rich of malts, salt liquirice, some overriped fruits, lots of herbal hops, roastiness. Powerfull and slightly boozy end. Full bodied, low carbonation. This isnít an easy beer but rewarding. Very powerfull, almost too much of alcohol but still enjoyable.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUL 20, 2014 On tap at The Scratch Weekend of Darkness. Black with some viscous movement. Aroma is nice dark malts. Taste is silky smooth with a fairly decent whack of sweetness; oily without having too much soy sauce. ABV well hidden. Nice beer but loses a bit as it warms up - too much candied dark fruits.
