4.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: MAY 23, 2013 Bottle from Beer Ritz. Pours a pitch black, with half a finger of dark tan head. Aroma is a lot of ginger (Fentimans Ginger Beer), gingery cake, a bit of cinnamon. It gave me flashbacks to International Arms Race, and set me up for a disappointment. Taste came as a wonderful surprise. Rich sweet barleywine malt, coffee, chocolate, liquorice, a little bit of spice (from the ginger and chipotle?) and a tiny hint of raspberry. Sweet upfront, but a nice coffee bitterness and a little (but genuine) spiciness, tempered with a touch of alcohol heat balances it really nicely. Complex as hell. To answer gyllenbock’s question "Who buys this junk?" (not entirely sure what he’s looking for - this has complexity by the barrel, and is maturely made and tasty as hell), I do. And I f*cking love it.

This 375ml bottle, no.5033, was bought at the BrewDog bar in Shoreditch London in November 2012. Coal black body, naked surface, dotted spots on the glass. Aroma of dark spices and chocolate malts. Rather unusual taste profile with variety of prunes, ginger, caramel and dark bread. Lingering spiced fruity finish. Mouth filling. Something else, pleasing (Shared with Finn and djoeye at a rating session, Tromsø 09.01.2017).

Malty sticky beginning. Fresh with lots of malt, The ginger is there, the peppers as well. Hints of dried fruit, plums, probably the raspberries as well. Round, refreshing, easy to drink for the ABV, lots of chocolate roasted malt, no alcohol tasteable. Fantastic great brew! Smooth, round absolutely great!
