3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Brewdog online store. It pours clear deep amber with no head. The nose is fruit cake, ginger, cinnamon, wood, caramel, burnt toffee, bourbon, sherry, vanilla and dark fruit. The taste is smoother than expected, wood, earth, maritime salty edge, spice, big on the alcohol, gingerbread, dried fruit, toffee, honey, vanilla, dried apricot, orange peel and sherry with a long, warming finish. Full body, no carbonation and oily mouth-feel. Great depth of flavour. Drinks like a fine spirit. Pretty impressive actually.

Not entirely sure where I bought this, probably on the BD webshop. Very boozy smell, smells like slivovitza. Similar taste, sweet. Very boozy. Hard to rate, I would not be able to drink more then a few cl. mariuspoenari (2988) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - DEC 6, 2016

Tiny bottle thanks to Stuu666 for my 9k. Pours hazy amber with no head. Big bag of booze on the nose, sherry, rum, raisins, caramel. Faint aniseed. Taste is hot, more like a spirit than a beer. More dried fruit and sherry. Glad to have tried. rouhlas (3784) - Thessaloniki, GREECE - NOV 8, 2015

Bottle split at Reubs flat on night 1 of RBESG ’15, thanks to Kenny for this juan, 20/08/15.
Amber with moderate off white spotting that is eager to dissipate.
Nose carries rich sherry tones, toffee, dark malt, wood, caramel, booze tunes but well tempered.
Taste comprises woody tunes, boozey, a touch harsh, rich fruit cake, menthol notes, not a patch on the nose.
Full body, slightly cloying but not OTT, warming alcohol in the close.
Not a bad effort for the ABV to be fair, tidy nose but became a little harsh thereafter. brnandersen (4143) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 23, 2015
Sample from 6 cl. bottle, courtesy of Colin, thanks! Amber colour with no head. Sweet aroma with lots of booze, barrel - bourbon, sherry. Rich caramel malts and dark, dried fruits. Taste is sweet. Thick texture with a flat carbonation. Lasting sweet and boozy finish with barrel and dark fruits. Pleasant beer despite the alcohol content. Still to extreme for me to be really good. Desverger (12974) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 20, 2015
Bottle thanks to Colin - Amber pour with almost no head. Aroma and taste is sweet malty and dark fruity with sherry and whisky infused wooden notes, sweet on the palate, boozy sweet finish. Interesting brew.
