look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Pours a dark, murky brown with a slight red tinge. Transparent throughout, with fairly lacklustre head of big beige bubbles. Lace is alright, but not great. Looks decent, though.

Smells alright, a bit nutty and spicy with nutmeg, carob and a touch of marzipan. Quite on the sweet side with only an afterthought of roastiness. But it's OK.

Taste is a bit boozier, an underlying palate of roastiness and a mild touch of black pepper. Majority of palate is sweet and quite nutty, with some almond paste, chestnut and more carob. Aftertaste adds a touch of spice which is a bit more colour to add to a decent but otherwise uninspiring palate.

A bit thin, a bit dry, nothing really interesting on the texture.

Don't get much, apart from the fairly ballsy roasted malt, but then it's not a big Baltic porter flavour and nothing outstanding in Brewdog's oeuvre.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours a deep black color and a very weak tan head that immediately settles down to a small lacing. The aroma is slightly roasted along with some fruity smell, later I could also smell some caramel. The taste is bitter with some coffee in the back - there's really not much there, too bad. It's drinkable, although feels slightly stale, but not exactly what I expect from BrewDog.

Very dark brown, with a caramel colored head that disappears quckly but really leaves some lacing behin. Lots of tiny bubbles. Beautiful.

Smell: hops, brown sugar, chocolate, coffee, grapefruit peel.

Taste: bitter at first, with a big undercurrent of slighty burned cookies. Some blackberries, a touch of grass, then some heavier notes, coffee and liquorice. Big citrus (grapefruit). Aftertase is bitter and has that lovely burned note. .

Mouth: medium, nice carbonation. Very very dry, really stays in the front of the mouth.

Overall: hmm, very fresh and hoppy, with is unexpected but actually works well. But you'd have to like hoppy/fruity beers. Very interesting and enjoyable.
