Bottle, thanks Craig. Black with brown head. Roasty aroma with lots of licorice. Taste of molasses, roasty. Bit thin, tangy amd sticky. McNeillR (2313) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 25, 2014
Darkest brown, no real head. Oaky, bleeding liquorice and light cherry. Almost oaty, decent sweetness. Vibrant darkest malt. Held up suprisingly well but rakes of dryness. torebravo (2) - - APR 23, 2014 does not count
Bottle, from the CGArvieUK cave
(18.2% version). Exceptional beer! A bit sweet and the taste lasts for minutes. BrewDog once again shows why they are among my favourite breweries. Renobob (2064) - Besançon, FRANCE - APR 5, 2014
Bue en bouteille de 33cl. Malts, chocolat, liqueur sucrée. Ca tape un peu trop quand même. Moyen plus. NeoHippie2 (1074) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - MAR 30, 2014
Jet black pour with a small tan head. Boozy aromas with some nice molasses and cocoa. Flavor is pretty warm at first but then the roasty character comes out nicely. Finish is long and a bit hot. If the abv was a bit more hidden on this one it’d be a lot nicer but still pretty good.

12oz bottle pours a dark oily black with a tan head. Big oak aroma. Caramel Maple oak and sweet malts taste. GIJOE (1196) - North Berwick, Maine, USA - JAN 30, 2014
Pours black with a frothy, brown head that fades quickly. Nearly no lacing. Nose is spiced molasses, dried prunes, and sweet mocha with oaky booze overtones. Taste is powerfully sweet and incredibly rich. Thick, full bodied, creamy goodness. Soft carbonation. Whiskeyed toffee finish. This is a remarkable dessert beer!

served this with perigordine walnut cake on Christmas eve, fanrastic!! pushkinwow (2781) - Ottawa, CANADA - DEC 30, 2013
On tap at Capones 2013 Black Friday event. Dark mahogany with no head. Once it warmed up lots of molasses, raisin, prune, alcohol, oak, belgian candied sugar. Full body, mild carbonation, sweet but there is some bitterness present. Makes a great black and tan with Dogfish 120 minute! RichardW (1813) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - DEC 11, 2013
Bottle. Unbelievably rich and thick with a massive sweet sherry aroma. The big abv isn’t immediately apparent on the tongue but there’s only a little time before the warmth in the chest becomes apparent. Very well made and well worth keeping for the last 30 odd months!
