October 2017 - Bottle share in Hackney. Huge thanks to Kenny for this. As 'BrewDog / Mikkeller Devine Rebel 2010', 13.8%. Dark ruby red, translucent, foamy light brown head. Aroma is oxidised, redcurrant, toffee. Body is smooth with soft carbonation. Taste is toffee and redcurrant, sugary, those colourful fruit tarts you used to get cheap in a supermarket, booze starts coming through in finish but is well hidden. Interesting stuff – fun to try.

Deep ripened berry aroma, lots of toasted toffee, fruitcake, meaty cherry, butterscotch. Big sweet flavour with hints of oxidation, lots more fruitcake, some raw booze, bread, dates. Full bodied, oily and chewy, with average carbonation. Warming finish, with more alcohol, some earth, toasted brown sugar, vanilla, rich leathery berries. This one definitely still has some kick.

Bottle from I think it was West Lakeview Liqours in Chicago. Pours a dark brown with a light orange/brown head ring. Nose is sweet maltiness with raisins and some vanilla barrel character. Tastes very sweet with some fruity, a little bitter and is a little hot. Really fucking tasty. It’s been in my cellar since 2011? I can’t remember. Wish I had more.

The nose is delicious, featuring Scotch whisky, malt, prunes, dark berries and fruit jam. Dense murky dark brown colour suits the style. A well balanced taste profile leads with some booze, prunes, brown sugar, toffee and tropical fruit. Some oak as well as fruity hops create some edge on a rich sweet beer.
