Little aroma, brownish clear beer seems very thin. No carbonation and little taste, though slight roast bitter. Not a favorite.

Draught at BrewDog Camden on 5 February 2014. Poured a clear ruby colour with a tight, white head. Sweet aroma of roasted nuts, boiled sweets and pastry. Initial flavours were somewhat artificial; mild chemical notes, some flowery hops and cereal. Finish was toffee sweetness mixed with a little metallic bitterness.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
A dark orange-brown coloured beer with frothy off-white head. A strong, skunky hop aroma, rubbery, and metallic, but a light roasted malt element is evident in the background. Dry mouthfeel. A light hop taste, tangy and citrusy thats followed by a sweeter toffe like roasted malt flavour with a hint of nuttiness. This is evident well into the finish.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Clear 500ml bottle, poured into a UK pint sleeve in Sep 2011.
Dull Ruby red body, thin white covering for a head.
The smell was of roasted malts, semi-sweet.
The taste was fairly dry but with a malty front, brown toast malty rather than sweet molasses malty.
I struggled with it, the 4% ABV didnít seem to sit right and although itís colour was fine it didnít back it up with any depth or rich flavours one could shout about.
A fairly boring brew all round.
