Bottle at our elite tasting. From my Secret Santa Beersiveknown. Thanks! Very rich and very intense. Also wonderfully balanced. Lots of coconut both in aroma and flavour. The high bitterness and light citrusy hops flavour provide ample background for lots of other stuff going on. Caramel, toffee, biscuity. Saltiness appears late in the finish. Alcohol warming and pleasant, never sharp. Really great beer, thanks Steve. rusos (751) - Stupava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - JAN 13, 2016

375ml bottle from Brewdog shop.
No visible head or lacing. Body is clear dark brown. Nose is caramel, popcorn, vanilla, wood. Flavour is creamy caramel, bourbon, rum, some alcohol burn. A little spice on the finish, some treacle. Very smooth mouthfeel, no carbonation, sticky and a bit chewy. So much going on here, a bit jarring at times but then it melds together. Quite a weird beer but a good one to savour. teorn88 (7682) - Rimini, ITALY - OCT 18, 2015
Backlog rating. Keg at BD Shoreditch, London. It pours a rich amber color with a small tan head. Aroma is sweet and rich in caramel and toffee notes, light bitter and bread, light banana and liquor. Taste has some more sweet toffee notes, vanilla, run, bread and cocoa. Medium to full bodied with ok carbonation. Overall, interesting but sweet Habanero (4678) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK, DENMARK - SEP 12, 2015
Bottled. Pours clear paleamber with a small off-white head. Aroma of bourbon and rum, wood and vanilla notes. Sweet flavor that ends up more dry with a hint of bitterness. Medium bodied, oily texture and soft carbonation. A nice Ale indeed. 🌟🌟🌟🌟 androman (2322) - Maarssen, NETHERLANDS - AUG 7, 2015
37.5% bottle at home from Only Good Beer, Budapest. Body is dark brown, head is flat, no lacing. Nose is liqueurish, flavor is bourbon, whine, cherry, candy sweets, honey, wood. Heavy sweet, light bitter, medium sour. Finish is long lasting medium sweet-sour, roasty and smoky light bitter, medium to heavy alcohol warmth. Full body, oily texture, nearly flat carbonation. A bit heavy dessert beer, not too easy to drink, interesting, I’d call it barley wine. rarbring (2294) - Linköping, SWEDEN - JUL 15, 2015
