2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: JUN 30, 2013 Aroma is of rosemary and bay leaves (spaghetti bolognese or beef stew), but the taste is flat and bitter. I think the combinations of herbs clashes. Big disappointment.
Update: we let the beer breathe for over two hours. Afterwards, the taste was much better. I recommend drinking this at room temperature.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle @ home, more than 2,5 years after bb date. Clear copper color. No head. Aroma’s; spices , sweet, fruity, confit. Retronasal the same. Lots of spices, but hard to discover which. Flavor is moderate sweet, spices, sweet fruit. Medium bodied. Still enough carbonation. Not much of an aftertaste. Actually still quite nice, as a dessert beer, but a sample size glass is enough.

Bottled (backlog). Hazy orangeish amber colour, small white head. Aroma is citrus, spruce, berries, some sour wood and spices. Flavour is quite similar with a surprisingly watery palate.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
THOUGHTS: Very interesting. Not bad either, as a stand alone beer but it was an awful IPA. Smelled a lot like a grapefruit. The flavor was almost like fruit juice. It smelled and tasted like it should’ve been bitter but it wasn’t.
TECHNICAL: Drank 3/2/2013. Bottle. Poured a murky, dark, slightly brownish orange with a small, off-white head that fully diminished and left virtually no lacing. The aroma didn’t have many beer smells. There was light gain and caramel; and odd herbal tea; something very much like grapefruit; sort of fruity; and something artificial. The initial flavor was moderately sweet, lightly acidic and slightly bitter; while the finish was mod sweet and slightly bitter. There was caramel, some odd grapefruit flavor that wasn’t bitter; herbal tea with sweetener, and something artificial. The medium body was fairly oily with fizzy carbonation and an ever-so-slight metallic finish.

Memory banks rate - and as I recall, better than the Brewdog version, more ginger, less ’medicinal’. Drinkable, if not entirely fun.
