Bottle. Black body under a small, rather fast disappearing beige head. Strong aroma of dark roasted malt, dark fruit, wood and alcohol with whisky. Very complex and warming aroma. Flavor is sweetish, roasted dark malt, dry fruit, dark fruit, chocolate, wood, whisky and balanced bitterness. Full bodied with a strong, long lasting warming aftertaste. Brewdog at their best.

aleanguz91 (180) - Grignasco (NO), ITALY - SEP 2, 2017
UPDATED: SEP 3, 2017 Bevuta il 03/09/2017 @DurtyNelly'sPub in Borgomanero (NO). Colore nero impenetrabile. Fine schiuma marroncino che svanisce quasi subito. Forte odore di whisky misto a cioccolato fondente, avverto una leggerissima nota affumicata. In bocca si sente molto l' alcol del whisky con punte di caffè. Retrogusto di cioccolato fondente. Poco carbonata. Pur essendo molto alcolica e liquorosa si lascia bere molto bene. BIRRA NOTEVOLE.
