DnAuK (112) - South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 19, 2012
This is quite astonishing. Fantastic aroma of toffee tinged with that aromatic , almost oak aged hints. Flavour is big, bold and powerfully bitter. Like Stone Arrogant Bastard but without the strength. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 18, 2012
On keg at The BrewDog Bar, Edinburgh. Pours a dark amber colour with a fair light tan head. Aroma of pine, pineapple and chocolate. Similar flavours with mild carbonation and an oily mouth-feel. Nice.

gunnar (8404) - Sandnes, NORWAY - MAY 9, 2012
Bottle from Brewdog online store. Pours deep amber with a light frothy and tanned head. Aroma is toffee and light roasted malts. Taste is moderate roast and toast, dark berries, bitter chocolate, well hopped, nice towards the end, with some wood as well. Good balanced brew.

maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - MAY 1, 2012
Keg BrewDog Camden London. A mahogany coloured beer with a thick and tight whitish head. Sweet and hoppy aroma with a hint of woody spice. Same in the mouth. Chewy, hoppy and fruity. Quite complex and becomes over complicated.

erickok (5628) - Leuven, BELGIUM - APR 21, 2012
Light orange, small white head. Raisins, white bread, herbal, interesting. Mild bitterness, medium carbonation. In between of an IPA and flavourful Belgian white, or something. Bit hun thin, though. More of these Japanse beers please. Thanks to the great guys at the Brewdog Camden bar. (Sample glass)

JohnRMurdoch (4564) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - APR 2, 2012
Bottle from BrewDog Glasgow. Unexpected dark brown collour with a yellowish foamy head. Hoppy chocolate caramel aroma. Hop & chocolate flavour. Quite smooth. Not a typical amber ale.

flying_pig (1464) - SCOTLAND - MAR 21, 2012
1/2 Pint on tap at Brewdog Glasgow (2.95):
Pine, roasted malts smell that is blended with a good caramel arona. Very sweet with a bit of brown sugar as well. The end is more pine and hops with some bitterness.
Dark amber colour, thin and bubbly white/brown head and slightly cloudy.
Caramel and roasted malts to start things off with, followed quickly by some piney hops and bitterness and a lot of sugary sweetness. The taste is rounded off by yet more malts.
Light and smooth with a good bitter hop feel to the drink and a nice, sweet finish and a touch of dryness right at the end.

Quite a nice, light and refreshing beer that was gone almost as quickly as I ordered it. The roasted malts and sweetness worked well and this one was a pleasure to drink.
