3.43/5 rDev -12.1%
look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3
A- Dark chocolate brown with a 1 finger tan head. Pours a bit thinner than I thought it would, given the high ABV. Maybe I was just expecting another version of TNP.
S- Rich, sweet chocolate covered cherries. Vanilla. And booze. Plenty of booze. Plus just a little oak. Not a bad aroma, but with all the ingredients and power in this beer, I'd expect a bit more.
T- Sweet, with some dark red fruit- cherry or cranberry (they did brew with it). Lots of sweet chocolate notes. Hints of burning booze. Could probably go for another few years in the bottle to settle down.
M- A bit syrup-like. Goes well with the sweetness, but a bit too thick for the taste. the balance is just a bit off.
O- Not bad. The booze is nice and warming, and the flavors are nice, but it could be a bit better for all of the ingredients. I love the super-strong beers that BrewDog makes, but this one isn't my favorite.

4.25/5 rDev +9%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25
A- Dark Chocolate pour with a tan head that disappears leaving faint lacing.
S- I have a small head cold so bear with me through this. I can smell some subtle sweetness from the cranberries, and there is definitely some oak essence as well. The smell is rich, and I can smell the 18.20% abv.
T- I was surprised how smooth this drank after smelling so much alcohol through this stuffy nose. The malt and cranberries give initial sweetness, and the oak gives a spectacular smooth finish. As I drink more, I become more puzzled by the lack of warmth from the alcohol content. It is reallly smooth.
M- This is rather heavy, almost syrupy. That being said, very drinkable.
O- This is a great beer though I found it to be very over priced. I encourge all serious stout fans to go try this exceptional brew. I enjoyed it, and I will have it again.
