Bottle from Vinmonopolet, with a more professional label. Lovely glowing ruby, firm head. Bittersweet, clearly related to % AM Saint. An overload of hops? No, not really. A firm malty foundation, just the right amount of sweetness. This is Brewdog at their best.

Flaske 0,33l - gave fra Rune. Mørkerød. Høyt luftig skum som fester seg til glasset og varer en stund. Kraftig & god sitrusaroma. Smaken sitrus som glir over i en kraftig syrlig bitter ettersmak som varer. Blir litt snerpete tørr på slutten. Bra øl - men litt ensformig.

Little head. Deep ruby colour, almost black at the top. Little head. Hoppy as all hell! Lasting malty notes. Mmmm.

Fin (10911) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 9, 2012
On tap at Brewdog Camden, London, 07.01.12 Pours red/amber with a filmy white head. Nicely hoppy but not an overkill of hoppiness. Lovely lasting citrus, good bittersweetness, little dry, good thrusting bitterness. My favourite of the ones that I tried in here today. A7 A4 T8 P3 Ov15 3.7

capoccetta (171) - roma, ITALY - JAN 8, 2012
alla spina. un amber ale un po anomala,colore molto intenso con note caramellate e una legera tostatura.Per essere cosi forte è anche molto beverina ed equlibrata, ma il finale troppo coperto da questi luppoli che ormai rendono uguale ogni birra.....che peccato.!!!

330ml bottle, batch 485, bought at Vinmonopolet Vika. Very pretty appearance with its bright, dark brown body sustained by a rusty shade and a decent off-white head, leaving spotty lacing behind. Smell of sappy red oranges and pineapples. Robust malt-hoppy taste of caramel mixed with oranges and citrus shells. Solid mid-dry, bitter tail. Well made and a pleasure to drink (hotel room, Oslo 05.01.2012).

SaintMatty (7522) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - JAN 7, 2012
330ml Bottle - Copper/dark red in colour. Hoppy aroma with notes of pine, soap and toffee. Hoppy and fairly bitter taste with notes of toffee, grapefruit and nuts.

fonefan (51064) - VestJylland, DENMARK - JAN 6, 2012

Bottle 330ml. @ home.

[ Trade by cgarvieuk ]. Clear medium to dark amber colour with a large, frothy and open, good lacing, mostly to fully lasting, light beige head. Aroma is moderate to heavy malty, caramel, moderate to heavy hoppy, citrus, orange - citrus. Flavour is moderate to heavy sweet and bitter with a long duration. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft. [20111111]

markas101 (2499) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - DEC 31, 2011
33 cl bottle, Sheffield, UK via Brewdog shareholder online preorder. Dark ruby brown, almost totally transparent. Fruity hop aroma, cherry and peach, spruce resin and faint mint with cloves. Sweet, then immediately taken over by the hops, a mingled caramel resin combination with a strong pepper finish. More fruit come through on the very end.

RichardW (1813) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - DEC 30, 2011
Bottle, Coppers, Ncl. Big caramel and hop aroma, blackcurrant and cherry cough mixture aftertaste, caramel comes back to the fore midway through. Could be seen as a bit harsh on the palate, the alcohol is not too overpowering, but still needs slow sipping!
