COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask & Bottled;
A historically accurate beer based on the recipe devised on the 8th of February 2007.

Recreated using the finest coloured malts which provide the complex sweet malt character which initially arouses the senses. Like a fine cheese cake the biscuit base has a smooth and creamy layer that both satisfies and entices. Culminating with a delicate fruit topping of blackcurrant and tinges of citrus to refresh the participant, complimented fully by the crisp dry bitter finish.

DanielBrown (4520) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - APR 19, 2017
Keg at Brewdog Leicester. Bit of a throwback this: standard, well delivered red ale. Nutty, tangy, good medium sized hopping. Core.

LazyPyro (1298) - Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - APR 14, 2017
330ml bottle rebrewed for AGM. Clear deep dark amber brown colour with a small beige head. Aroma: caramel malts, berry fruits. Taste: sweet malts, caramel, toffee, biscuit, berries, light bitterness in the finish. Medium body, good carbonation bit of a bubbly mouthfeel. Not bad actually, think 5AM Saint is better.

mR_fr0g (12601) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 13, 2017
Keg at Brewdog Soho. A dark reddy brown coloured pour with a lasting loose beige head. Aroma is subdued, nutty malts, tangy red berries, little rustic component. Flavour is composed of mellow brown malts, brown bread, liquorice, hint of pine,. Palate is semi sweet frothy and easy going. Lingering liquorice and black sugars.

Mjp12 (1901) - York, North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - APR 10, 2017
UPDATED: MAY 12, 2017 Rebrewed for the AGM, it looks ok, but has too much of a malt aroma and taste for me. Very different to what brewdog are putting out today . Re rated from a bottle, with a clean palate, some nice sharp fruit, and pine bitterness on the finish

Heidbummer (694) - SCOTLAND - APR 9, 2017
Rebrewed for AGM weekend. Pours deep ruby/amber, tan lacy head. A little overcarbonated for me. Sweet malty taste, quite dry, a bit thin. Ok. This can go back to its retirement home.
