12 fl oz bottle. Pours dark brown with a little head. Light roasted malt aroma. Flavour is roasted malty with a light chocolate smoothness. But the flavour is immediately taken over by a strange bitter hoppy flavour, slight herbal. Ends mild bitterness with a distinct BrewDog note.

Bottled. A deep red beer with a brown head. The aroma is sweet alcoholic combined with notes of roasted malt and citrusy hops. The flavor is sweet with notes of roasted malt, and hops giving it notes of grass and grapefruit, as well as an alcohol note, that burns in the throat. joergen (29397) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - NOV 12, 2007

Warning! Early amateur rating! A dark complex beer. Dry palate and some harshness is offset by fruitiness and sumptuous strength. Sure this was a draft pint !
