From a 330ml bottle into a tulip pint.
A: Pours a clear dark amber, with a bubbly beige head. The head dissipates reasonably fast, leaving a thick ring around the glass.
S: Cereal grains with some caramel, light nuttiness and a bit of toast/roast. Black licorice. A little bit of dark fruitiness in the background as well.
T: Malty. Definitely some biscuit, also a fair amount of toast/light roast. A bit of caramel. Good aftertaste of biscuit and cereal malts.
M: Feels thin at first, but coats the mouth nicely. Carbonation is good for style, maybe on the high side.
Overall: great beer, always a joy to drink.

Poured this Brew Dog staple from the 330 ml bottle into an English pub glass. I was greeted by a nice brick red hue, just short of brown, with around three fingers of tan head. Features a toasted caramel aroma with some citrus rind and hop spice apparent. Stated plainly, I was impressed by the flavor: Malt-forward but provides a decent flavor hops punch. I get raisin biscuits, faint molasses, and lightly toasted cereals providing the scaffolding, while tangerine rind and flesh, tobacco, floral pollen, black tea, pineapple, and maybe a hint of bramble fruit provide the decorations. Tasty. Smooth body is on the thin side perhaps but does coat the mouth a little, oily with a moderate soft carbonation. The fruity flavor notes develop nicely as the beer warms up. Finishes fairly crisp but does leave a malty echo and some earthy hops. One of the better red/amber ales I've tried in recent memory, clean crystal malt flavors and not cloyingly sweet, with a decent hop spice. I will be back.
