On-tap; 1/3rd of a pint in Brewdog Glasgow (£3):
Copper amber colour with a thin lacing on top for a head that was a beige colour & wasn't too bad & left some nice lacing too.

Really sweet beer with a lot of malts on the nose and some strong alcohol, although thankfully at least some of this was hidden. There was a good caramel aroma with strong, ripe fruits & lots of depth.

Sweet malts & some alcohol initially, with a little spice, some darker fruits & a touch of spice. I could also detect some caramel & prunes backed with some sugar & a little pepper. The taste was rounded off with some sweet fruits.

Smooth & very strong with a warming alcohol taste that came on top of a full, sweet body & fairly low carbonation.

Quite an enjoyable beer and definitely a strong one that had to be sipped at. There was a lot of depth in the beer with a good combination of big alcohol flavours, sweet fruits & caramel malts all blending well. (941 characters)

Pours amber/copper, thin lacing. Looks flat.
Smells of sweet malts, caramel, vanilla, flowers.
Really sweet malts, with honey and vanilla. Nice citrus (oranges, tangerines and limes), somewhat tart cherries, juicy plums, berries, so generally lots of ripe dark fruit. Dark grapes also, red wine-ish. Big green hops, but not as bitter as expected from a BrewDog.
Alcohol creates a nice sherry feel, bit of cognac too. Not too flat, but with a mild fizz.
A good barleywine, good malts and nice extra fruity hops. (510 characters)
