Pours a an amber colour with lots of resin in the bottom. Very little head. Slight aroma of herbs. Whatever this is supposed to be its not very good. Would not have this again. The_Osprey (8452) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 18, 2013
Nov 2012 - bottle. Sweet tasting. No hops, so no bitterness. Not very nice, but OK and a lot better than the Brewdog International Arms Race attempt. They’ve captured some of the resin that hops brings. Wouldn’t have again. Abio (1868) - BERMUDA - MAR 15, 2013
Comparing the two beers like it should be probably be. Thy both smell heavily herbal. The black label even unpleasant. But at the taste the flying dog is slightly favorite. But both are not my kind of beer for sure. Acid303 (674) - Barcelona, CATALONIA, - MAR 13, 2013
Tap at Barcelona Beer Festival 2013. Small Pint (20cl). Hazy orange/amber colour with an off-white head. A lot of sweetness on the nose: caramel, sugar and hints of herbs. Taste is mostly toffee-like, but also blended with herbs, malts and lemon. Pretty sugary as well. Spicy notes, but no bitterness. Sometimes similarities with white wine, not well defined though. Medium body, under-carbonated (specially at the end). Not bad, but weird. Aniela (4216) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAR 13, 2013
Bottle. Clear amber beer with a small offwhite head. Spicy, woody, dry, herbal aroma with some grassy notes. Spicy and woody flavour, a bit strange beer.....

10/III/13 - 33cl bottle from Geers (Oostakker) @ home - BB: 14/VI/13 (2013-232) Thanks to Erwin for sharing the bottle! suprchunk (2994) - Crestview, Florida, USA - MAR 10, 2013
Clear amber beer, small irregular off-white to light beige head, unstable, non adhesive. Aroma: very spicy, cardamom, floral, rose petals, some overripe fruits. MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: lots of cardamom, floral, bit soapy, bitterness, herbal. Aftertaste: lots and lots of cardamom, bit sourish, soapy, herbal, some cocoa powder. Flying Dog: you lose, Brewdog: you "win", but it’s more of a pity cup you get. Neither of these beers are very good.
Chunky amber pour. Big floaties. Small off-white head that fades quick and leaves no lacing. At least there is some carbonation in there. Bay leaf aroma. A lemony presence, but very much a spice driven beer. Taste is bay leaves. Slight peppery flavor. Not that good. Same as the other side’s offering.

Hellbraun mit orangenem Schimmer, so gut wie kein Schaum innerhalb kürzester Zeit und dazu noch weiße Schwebeteilchen im Gebräu, schaut fies aus. Riecht nach Kräuterlimonade a la Rivella und Almdudler. Im Geschmack ebenfall kräuterig mit malzigem Unterton. Klingt herb und alkoholisch aus. Alles andere als überzeugend. arone12 (930) - Maryland, USA - MAR 9, 2013
Pours a dark orange color. Smells a bit of carrots. And some sugar. Taste is kinda weird. ration (2253) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 9, 2013
090313. Bottle at home. Pours hazy amber with no head. Aroma bubblegum, juniper. Tastes like iced tea. Now that I have tasted both "experiments", all I can say is all glory to the mighty Hops.
