On tap at Rattle n Hum bar in New York, NY. A slightly hazy amber coloured pour with a medium off white head. Malty, hoppy aroma. Tastes hoppy, malty, bitter/sweet. Another big beer from Stone. TheDazz (1) - New Jersey, USA - NOV 14, 2011 does not count
Caramel, pine, citrus, grapes, candy corn, toffee-like flavor that comes in with raisins. The alcohol is almost completely masked by the complex flavors. Medium to full body creaminess that engulfed the mouth perfectly. Light Carbonation, just a hint of alcohol warmth going down. It leaves the lips sticky and the mouth feeling dry from the metallic hops. A dangerous easy drinking high abv. beer that should be sipped. Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - NOV 21, 2011
On keg at The BrewDog Bar. Pours a deep ruby colour with a thin beige head. Aroma of alcohol, passion fruit, grapefruit, sherry and pine. Flavours of plum pudding, sherry and treacle with alcohol quite present. Mild carbonation and a warming alcohol finish. A little metallic right at the end though. bittersbetter (6) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 24, 2011 does not count
Intense. This beer lives up to it’s name and description, very complex aroma and super bitter shock and linger to the taste buds. Extremely dry, bitter and alcohol after taste but surprisingly smooth and easy to drink (especially for the 10+ ABV)

Fullbodied Ale with loads of floral hops and well balanced bitterness. A hint of sweetness is present in the background. Scopey (14778) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 20, 2012
Bottle from BrewDog bar Aberdeen. It pours deep red-brown, with a thick beige head. The nose is gingerbread, wood, cake, spice and dark fruit. The taste is oak, leather, resin, alcohol warmth, spice, fruit cake and stewed orange citrus fruit, with a decent bitter finish. Full body and moderate carbonation. Well balanced. I like it.
