Keg at BD Shoreditch. Dark brown pour with little head. Nose isn’t the best but it’s not off putting or anything. Pretty standard roast with some light chilli and chocolate coming through. Taste is your typical dark ale roast with some ashy undertones and a bitey chilli finish. Very peppery. Not balanced at all. Not my thing

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap at BrewDog as 48 Miles Later. It pours darkest brown, near black with a small beige head. The nose is roasty, spicy chilli, orange, lime, grapefruit and dull smoke. The taste is roasty, some acidity, chilli, vegetal notes, grapefruit, orange zest, pithy lime and wood with a dry, roasty finish. Medium body and average carbonation. Balance not really there in my opinion. So-so.
