look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 1.5
A: Tasty looking pour with thin but very persistent head. Dark black, good lacing. Really impressed with this one's appearance considering the ABV. 4.5
S: Definitely get sulfuric stouty smell and also something like juniper berries. Also, hops. Also get some musty woody notes like a wood workshop. Alcohol well hidden. Definitely notice the familiar Brewdog hop profiles as it warms also. Smell is complex but a bit subtle and faint. 4
T: Surprisingly sweet, loads of residual sugar in this. It hides the alcohol _extremely_ well though. Smoky notes coming in later. But it's still so sweet. To an almost sickly extent. 2.5
M: Pretty good for the style. 4
O: Enjoyment is substantially reduced by the excessive quantities of residual sugar. I couldn't finish the whole bottle. 1.5

4.25/5 rDev +9.3%

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.
