Beersiveknown (4204) - NORTHERN IRELAND - JUN 29, 2012
Bottle from Brewdog Online,Paired with pizza. More ruby-brown than amber with a fluffy tan head. Lemon and dusty cupboards on the nose, its well carbonated, quite smooth in the mouth with toffee and chocolate notes up front, followed by some slight citrus hops and a touch of black malt astringency. Enjoyable but more of a brown ale.

omegamike (152) - York, North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 22, 2012
Pours mahogany with thin white head. Aroma is very malty, yet with a lovely tinge of citrus and honey. The flavour is rich malty liquorice with a sweet honey accent and a light bitters rounding it out. Wonderful.

DnAuK (112) - South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 19, 2012
This is quite astonishing. Fantastic aroma of toffee tinged with that aromatic , almost oak aged hints. Flavour is big, bold and powerfully bitter. Like Stone Arrogant Bastard but without the strength. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - MAY 1, 2012
Keg BrewDog Camden London. A mahogany coloured beer with a thick and tight whitish head. Sweet and hoppy aroma with a hint of woody spice. Same in the mouth. Chewy, hoppy and fruity. Quite complex and becomes over complicated.

Light orange, small white head. Raisins, white bread, herbal, interesting. Mild bitterness, medium carbonation. In between of an IPA and flavourful Belgian white, or something. Bit hun thin, though. More of these Japanse beers please. Thanks to the great guys at the Brewdog Camden bar. (Sample glass)
