Comparing the two beers like it should be probably be. Thy both smell heavily herbal. The black label even unpleasant. But at the taste the flying dog is slightly favorite. But both are not my kind of beer for sure.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tap at Barcelona Beer Festival 2013. Small Pint (20cl). Hazy orange/amber colour with an off-white head. A lot of sweetness on the nose: caramel, sugar and hints of herbs. Taste is mostly toffee-like, but also blended with herbs, malts and lemon. Pretty sugary as well. Spicy notes, but no bitterness. Sometimes similarities with white wine, not well defined though. Medium body, under-carbonated (specially at the end). Not bad, but weird.

Bottle. Clear amber beer with a small offwhite head. Spicy, woody, dry, herbal aroma with some grassy notes. Spicy and woody flavour, a bit strange beer.....

10/III/13 - 33cl bottle from Geers (Oostakker) @ home - BB: 14/VI/13 (2013-232) Thanks to Erwin for sharing the bottle!
Clear amber beer, small irregular off-white to light beige head, unstable, non adhesive. Aroma: very spicy, cardamom, floral, rose petals, some overripe fruits. MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: lots of cardamom, floral, bit soapy, bitterness, herbal. Aftertaste: lots and lots of cardamom, bit sourish, soapy, herbal, some cocoa powder. Flying Dog: you lose, Brewdog: you "win", but it’s more of a pity cup you get. Neither of these beers are very good.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Chunky amber pour. Big floaties. Small off-white head that fades quick and leaves no lacing. At least there is some carbonation in there. Bay leaf aroma. A lemony presence, but very much a spice driven beer. Taste is bay leaves. Slight peppery flavor. Not that good. Same as the other side’s offering.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Hellbraun mit orangenem Schimmer, so gut wie kein Schaum innerhalb kürzester Zeit und dazu noch weiße Schwebeteilchen im Gebräu, schaut fies aus. Riecht nach Kräuterlimonade a la Rivella und Almdudler. Im Geschmack ebenfall kräuterig mit malzigem Unterton. Klingt herb und alkoholisch aus. Alles andere als überzeugend.

Pours a dark orange color. Smells a bit of carrots. And some sugar. Taste is kinda weird.

090313. Bottle at home. Pours hazy amber with no head. Aroma bubblegum, juniper. Tastes like iced tea. Now that I have tasted both "experiments", all I can say is all glory to the mighty Hops.

355ml botle from Cotteridge Wines.Amber gold hazy pour with a good sized whitish head which quickly faded.Immediate strong aroma of vegetable garden which thankfully did not last long leading to strong pepper smell.Then other spices such as cinnamon,cardamom,cloves and coriander to name a few become apparent along with herbs and a hint of orange.First taste was strange to say the least but then the flavour came through made up of everything the aroma suggested with eldeflower also in evidence.Sweet spicy finish with more citrus also there.Interesting and tasty brew which i imagine will differ in various batches because of make up of ingredients and will also have a lot of differing ratings.Would like to try the BrewDog offering of this.
