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.

BVery (10201) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - FEB 19, 2012
UPDATED: DEC 30, 2013 Bottle. Dirty orange pour. Dusty biscuity aroma and flavor. Tastes a bit old - and somewhat uninspired. Its okay - but just okay.

Scopey (14202) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 8, 2011
Many times in bottle and most recently at the White Horse on Cask (March 2011). It pours amber, with a decent, fluffy off-white head. The nose is caramel malt, citrus fruits, grass and some floral. The taste is sweet caramel, toasted malt, biscuit, grass, earth and some citrus, with a dry finish. Medium body and soft carbonation. Ok, but not up to the other Brewdog offerings.

tombyars (1672) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - OCT 10, 2011
Tasted this at the Paisley Beer Festival in April 2007. Cask, handpump dispense. Clear copper red in colour with a thin white head. Rich fruity aroma laced with caramel. Pale malts give a fiery chewy base of moist maltloaf with rich berry fruits and a hint of butterscotch. Peppery hop resins add a bitter bite to the aftertaste. Finish is dry and woody with tart redcurrant fruit evident. A powerful ruby ale and tastes stronger than the 5% suggests. Well recommended.

750ml bottle from Picks poured into an English Pint. Bottle expired 6/6/2009. Pours a cloudy dark amber with a small bit of white head. Aroma of citrus and some sort of berry. Taste is very lightly sweet and lightly bitter. Taste of biscuit malt and blueberry. Light bodied with a thin texture, flat carbonation and not much of a finish. Overall, not bad for my first Brewdog. Something Im glad I tried but wont be drinking again.

slimspady (219) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 29, 2011
Nice, fat white head on a crimson brew. Intense and complicated aroma. Some oak notes. Great taste. Not as good as some other red/amber ales. Nice caramel and roasted malty goodness. Feels thicker than 5%. Not a bad thing, just not expected. The malt sticks around with a citus finish. Good beer. I rarely buy beer twice (theres just too many to try!), and this one of those. Glad I tried it, liked it, but not so much that Id have it again.

Koelschtrinker (19702) - Kln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 21, 2011
Ser, honigartiger ausbalancierter Geruch, etwas fruchtig. Sehr hopfiger Antrunk, leicht ser Hopfen mit entsprechender Bittereinheit, dies wirkt sehr interessant. Vollmundig, im Nachgeschmack bitter-wrzig, langer hopfiger Abgang. Test vom 29.5.2007, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: -,11,10,12,9,11 - 10,88

Warning! Early amateur rating! Starts with crisp malts but then blooms in to quite a bitter-hop beer. Subtle smoky note. Okay.

marcot (770) - Campomorone, ITALY - JAN 7, 2011
In bottiglia da 33 dasporto dal Polli. Bottiglia con qualche problema (non rifermentata?), birra completamente ferma, sapore e aroma apparentemente inalterati. Buona e come al solito con un luppolo molto importante.

alobar (3727) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 28, 2010
Clear amber color with a slightly off-white head. Aroma of caramel and citrus. Sweet malts flavor up front with caramel and citrus flavors with a crisp hop bite at the end. Excellent lacing for an amber with a creamy mouth feel. Very nice beer.
