I'm a fan of spicy beer, and this a solid one. Albeit, it can be overpowering if you don't like the taste of pepper. The peppercorns are right upfront front: smell and taste. Add to that some caramel and some distant chocolate, strong malt flavor. Did not detect the rye or fruit as the label implies.

341ml bottle from Brewdog's Online Shop:
Not a bad beer at all and certainly a lot better than I was expecting given the aroma of the beer, it definitely wasn't a classic but I did enjoy the spiciness to it and its fairly unique flavours. While it's not a beer I'm likely to pick up again it is one it was a decent beer and a very spicy one at that.

Earthy spice, pepper, rye sweetness. Very interresting and fun beer. Different than any other rye. A must have in my opinion.

Ruby, good lacing. Quite a strong rye component and a spicy beer, good balance, light hops but a rich earthy peppery character, good drinkability and balance. Not something I would have regularly but this was enjoyable.
