Taste is minimally sweet caramel malty with a nuttily touch, piney, and herbal hoppy overtones, a fruity touch of cherries.

BlackHaddock (5190) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - SEP 10, 2015
33cl bottle into a Chimay chalice at home on 10th Sep 2015. Cheers son for winning this for me. Off white topping to a reddy brown body. Malty, yeasty nose, Belgian like in fact. Some hop bitterness arrives in the aroma once the maltiness has elapsed a little, or I got used to it. The taste is also malts first with the hops coming through later, mild yeast presence in the background. Highly carbonated, a little too much for me to be honest, almost ’fizzy’ in nature. Dry finish to the taste, but the hop bitterness does not linger, the malts come strong again towards the end.

ClubGonzo (4897) - Bergen, NORWAY - DEC 24, 2012
Bottle, shared with BBGTC. Pours a deep amber-brown body with a small white head. Nose is caramel, nuts, roasty tones, grass and hints of pine. Taste is nougat, grass, nuts, burnt sugar and hints of paper. Moderate carbonation, medium body. Pretty standard amber without any real flaws, nor merits.

RichardGretton (4469) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 23, 2013
Bottle. Strong coloured amber beer with a strong head. The aroma is quite dry with a hint of bitterness, the flavour is very bitter (rather like an IPA) and refreshingly dry with a hint of spice. Overall a nice strongly bitter beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

erickok (4464) - Leuven, BELGIUM - APR 21, 2012
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)

Beersiveknown (4408) - 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.
