Tap at Hamilton’s Tavern in San Diego. Pours very dark brown/black with a few tan bubbles. Aroma of really dark toasted/burnt malt with a hint of alcohol. Medium plus body with sharpish carbonation. It’s mildly sweet with a touch of heat. It’s very smooth burnt malt. Texture and flavor suggest barrel aged. A genuine sipper. Shared with a couple of guys at the bar. They were impressed. So was I.

100th BrewDog rate! Bottle, many thanks to thepeter. It pours jet black, with a bubbly tan head. The nose is quite subdued - chocolate, caramel, toasted coconut, sweet and chewy. The taste is roasted malt, alcohol warmth, charcoal, chocolate, caramel, oak, smoke, treacle and some dried fruit, with a roasty finish. Full body and fine carbonation. Smooth and well balanced. This has held up pretty well. gunnfryd (15176) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JAN 24, 2010

33 Bottle in Klooster, Delft. Very very sweet with candy like flavour which overpowers the beer HenrikSoegaard (14448) - Randers, DENMARK - MAY 7, 2011
Bottle. Frothy lightbrown fair mostly deminishing head. Black colour. Moderate hoppy and malty aroma. Moderate bitter flavor dominated by tobacco and wood. Average moderate bitter finish. Creamy palate. Christian (13773) - Odense, DENMARK - FEB 14, 2009
Black with no head even when I try hard. The aroma of licorice and caramel with a little barbecue isn’t ground breaking, but it’s damn good. Sweet with a lot of roasted nuances, some flowers and a little smoke. Unique and tasty as heck. bierkoning (13598) - La Tropica/Doarp, NETHERLANDS - SEP 28, 2008
Bottle, batch # 1 from Cgarvieu. Thanks! Opague, hardly any head. Chocolate, licorice, jasmine, oak and red berries in the aroma. Salty, malty, roasty flavor with licrice, oak, vanilla. flowers and berries. Sweet but complex. Full bodied. Some roasty bitterness. A bit too perfumed for my taste, but still a very good beer.

Shared with Skinnyviking after purchasing a 330ml bottle at Ølbutikken, Copenhagen. Dark-black body under a brownish layer. Roasted, almost burnt, spicy malts. Dark caramel leading to a confectionary smooth flavour. Rounded palate and warming alcohol (10.09.2008).
