Tyvärr höll inte ölet riktigt måttet. Doften var lovande med ett fint inslag av hallon. Smaken var tyvärr spritig med en konstig bismak av bränt gummi. Då vätskan blev varmare dök det fram lite hallon men det var för sent för att rädda äran. Kändes lite avslagen, inte mycket kolsyra alls.Inte prisvärd enligt mig, långtifrån. daniele (9021) - ITALY - NOV 23, 2010

Bottled and served in the brewdog Teku glass. A rich vibrant ruby red with hints of dark orange in colour. Aroma is a rather sweet strawberry. The taste however is far from sweet. Very dry and crisp on the palete, with is quite bitter finish. The tartness of the raspberries really comes through in the aftertaste. I was quite surprised to hear this beer was aged in whiskey casks because i really wasn’t able to pick out any whiskey character in this beer. This is a really well made beer. gyllenbock (9099) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - NOV 18, 2010
Bottle was number 449 of 3200.
The aroma was promising with a nice touch of raspberry. The taste was not as good, too much alcohol and with a strange aftertaste of burnt rubber. The beer felt a bit off, not much carbonation. Not worth its price. Skinnyviking (9550) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 14, 2010
Draught. Low fluffy and quickly disappearing white head. Clear red body. Intensive mild slightly sour raspberry aroma and flavor with low carbonation and a long aftertaste.

Bottle at Craig’s, Edinburgh tasting, yet another big thanks to Craig for this beer. Shared in company of Craig, Stella, Jan, Charlotte, Fritz and Loz 30.10.10 This the cork was a bloody nightmare to get out but once this was out, yummm pours light amber with some reddiness. Really good fruitiness, lovely rasping raspberry, damn good. A7 A4 T8 P4 Ov14 3.7 Miksu (5053) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - NOV 2, 2010
0.375 l bottle, thanks Sampo! Reddish amber color, creats lots of foam. Sweet perfumed aroma of raspberry and strawberry. Dryer and more acidic flavor with raspberry and bitter spiciness. Does not seem very oaky at first but the finish is very oaky and long with fruit liquer character. Slightly tannic palate. Surprising flavor combination of fruits, oak, alcohol and bitter spiciness. zathrus13 (1776) - Mount Laurel, New Jersey, USA - OCT 29, 2010
Bottle, thanks to darkguardian. Pours orange, with a white/pink head. Aroma is fruit, malt, and a touch of bourbon. Flavor is fruit, wood, and bourbon. Dry and a little bit bitter. hopscotch (11048) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 20, 2010
Bottle… South Florida Throwdown 2010… Clear maple syrup-colored ale with a small, fizzy, white head. Decent retention. Smells like boozy, woody, strawberry cough syrup… only worse. Light to medium-bodied and abrasive with tickling carbonation. The flavor is a boozy, bitter, fruity and acidic mess of a concoction. Finishes astringent and dry. Well, everyone else at the throwdown liked it a good bit. I think it’s a total mess of a beer. It rubs me in all the wrong ways and in all the wrong places. I’m a big BrewDog fan, but this one was a major disappointment for me. I’m still grateful to have had the opportunity to try it. Thanks go out to darkguardian for providing the bottles for all of us to share! I’m glad I was in the absolute minority at the Throwdown as far as the level to which I disliked this beer. Admittedly, only my craft beer bias prevented me from scoring this as low as the BMC beers. dimenhetfield (2486) - , Florida, USA - OCT 18, 2010
Big thanks to DarkGurdian for sharing this one at a recent tasting. The aroma just explodes with a massive amount of chocolate and strawberries. I noticed a little bit of sediment floating around in the glass, but I figured that it was just from the whisky casks that were used to age this beer, so therefore no harm done. For a beer being at 11%ABV it’s incredible smooth and easily drinkable. It’s got a good amount of carbonation with a very thin head to it. A great beer!!
