allmyvinyl (10932) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 1, 2014
Bottles from Brewdog online shop. Memory banks rate. More brown than red. Big toffee malt character, big pine and resin hops. Taste brings citrus bitterness and nuts. Bitter finish. Good.

zimbo (970) - SCOTLAND - DEC 29, 2013
Dark plummy smell in the bottle and as it warms up it gains an appetising brown sugar quality. Deep Indian red in colour it initially forms a loose tan head when poured but this thins in time despite giving some consistent complex lacing. Pleasant dusty dusky elements leading to a dryness beyong anything even martini like. Could do with more refinement but real individuality and complexity and the elements have really be brought together with some skill. Very good. Would probably drink it even if it was dispensed from the mouth of a wall mounted stag’s head. I wouldn’t even ask for a glass.

Kopparfärgad med ljusbrunt skum! Massor med humle men även lite sötma av malten! En bra öl!

KM (416) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAR 22, 2013
Bottle. Nice dark red body. Very fine large pale brown head. Sweet malty aroma. Quite heavy malty flavour, with some bitterness. A tad alcohol flavour. A little too sweet. (At home, 22.03.2013)

prima nota: sono vivo! del resto non sono un nazi. la prima cosa che mi ha colpito e’ il colore. mi aspettavo una bionda, invece trovo una rossastra ramata. una bella schiuma e un profumone da ipa d’assalto. poi il sapore: credo che il luppolo abbia sverniciato le pentole... beh... forza luppolo! buonissima! stanotte sognero’ foteste antinazi luppolate.!

3.5
danlo (3185) - Darlington, Durham, ENGLAND - JAN 18, 2013
330ml bottle from Brewdog online store. Reddish dark brown amber colour, thin off-white foam head and hoppy pine orangey caramel malt aroma. Initial taste is caramel, biscuit with some bitterness and a hit of resiny pine, orange rind, grapefruit hop flavour, then a warming lingering deep malty (sweetish) bitter finish. Medium body and carbonation. Quite drinkable.
