3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured a slightly hazy amber color. Aroma is slightly tart with fruity and veggie notes. Taste has more veggies with some slightly skunky fruit flavors. Some lemon and honey. Ginger and spices in the finish. Not bad!

3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: DEC 27, 2012 12 oz bottle - pours hazy orange with fizzy white head, bubbles and diminishing returns. Fresh black pepper black pepper black pepper on the nose. Incredible amount of black pepper with an undercurrent of juniper. Medium crisp palate. No bitterness or bite whatsoever. Tastes of cool citrus fruit with touch of acidity at the finish. Pretty nondescript but for the nose of BLACK PEPPER! Great idea though.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Golden brown with little foam. Aromas are caramel and brown sugar with lemon and marzipan. Lots of vegetable with ginger and herbal notes. Flavours are dry biscuit with sweet brown sugar and herbal, spices. Quite slick on the palate. Not as good as the Brewdog version.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from Brewdog. Pours dark golden with a small white head. Aroma is spicy, juniper and cinnamon. Taste is quite something, there is a weird bitterness here, from herbs and spices, interesting, but not an everyday beer.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle through BrewDogs webbshop. Compared to BrewDogs version this one is more fruity rather then herbal. I prefered this one but didnít like any of the versions to be honest.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured a clear amber with little to no head. Aroma is like sticking your head into an herb garden with some pepper on top (only way I can describe this). Taste is pepper, tobacco, floral, and an astringent earthiness. Very odd.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from Brewdog shop. Amber color, white head. Bitter sweet taste with citrus, herbs, hint of cinnamon and grapefruit. Quite unbalanced body. Dry bitter finish. Not bad.

1.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle at home thanks to Lewis. Aroma is much more woody than the BD (the bay maybe?) some mint notes too. Smells a bit muddied. Little bit of orange which smells grim. Poured with obvious carbonation but very little head and what it poured with disappeared quickly. Taste is a bit soapy and synthetic like dried and spiced orange slices from a Xmas tree: meant to be smelt and looked at but not tasted! Canít decide whether I preferred (hated less?) this one or the BD one. Probably this initially

2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle. Iíve had this directly after the BrewDog version and this significantly different. Still an amber colored, this hasnít got a head. Aroma is spiced, slightly sour and has hints of apples. Flavor is sour and quite harsh to drink. I didnít like this that much..

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Sampled from bottle. Clear copper to amber color, no head. Smell malts, herbs and spices and yuk. Tastes the same. No, not my thing. Just not, definitely not. Anyone who really likes this beer can rate it properly.
