ComradeK (1269) - Sydney, - JUN 21, 2013
375ml bottle. Pours an opaque black, with a moderate beige head, which lasts well and leaves good lacing. The aroma has dark chocolate, warm chilli, cured meat and savoury malt notes. Mild herbal and lemon hops up front gradually segue into sweet but zingy ginger. This blends surprisingly well with rich dark chocolate and toasted rye bread malt in the mid-palate. Warming chilli comes in towards the finish, where it blends very nicely with ginger and dark chocolate. There is an almost whisky and dry ginger aftertaste. This is one of those out there BrewDog beers where all the strange ingredients come together and work very well. A rich and enjoyable brew.

Rune (13720) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JAN 12, 2017
This 375ml bottle, no.5033, was bought at the BrewDog bar in Shoreditch London in November 2012. Coal black body, naked surface, dotted spots on the glass. Aroma of dark spices and chocolate malts. Rather unusual taste profile with variety of prunes, ginger, caramel and dark bread. Lingering spiced fruity finish. Mouth filling. Something else, pleasing (Shared with Finn and djoeye at a rating session, Tromsø 09.01.2017).

Finn (8305) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JAN 11, 2017
Flaske 375ml. Nr. 5033 av 9819. Spandert av Rune. Delt med ham og djoeye i WCveien 9 Jan 17. Svart. Filmskum. Aroma av whisky & krydder. Smaken Jägermeister & kamfer. Tørr ettersmak. Annerledes øl - men ikke spesielt godt.

djoeye (5343) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JAN 10, 2017
Aroma; jägermeister, ginger cinnamon, oak malts. Look; off pink film, jet black body. Taste; roasted malts, black syrup, roasted prunes, jägermeister, camphor, dark cherries, ginger – solid n warming finish. Feel; solid, soft. Overall; suddenly something completely different.

Erzengel (9750) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - DEC 11, 2016
Malty sticky beginning. Fresh with lots of malt, The ginger is there, the peppers as well. Hints of dried fruit, plums, probably the raspberries as well. Round, refreshing, easy to drink for the ABV, lots of chocolate roasted malt, no alcohol tasteable. Fantastic great brew! Smooth, round absolutely great!
