4.25/5  rDev +13.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A raisiny garnet-brown with creamy lumpy tan head that trails. Brown sugar, soil, cinnamon oil, smoke (cured meat?) and port barrel on a complex nose. Lingonberry and maybe plum, burnt toast and sticky toffee up front followed by kola spice and a touch of ash to end. Brandy finish and tight tingly linger. On the light side of medium, surprising fizz, very soft and creamy and some cling.

Manages to bring the sweetness of Baltic Porter without the sugary pitfalls of that style. The body is the difference between porter and stout. a.k.a. vanilla porter, I've read, but I'm not sure I see that except maybe as elements of other flavors.

Easy drinking (6.2% is invisible) top porter.

Edit: Brewdog blog says this is brewed with Bramling Cross (which could account for some berry notes) and Sorachi Ace - that comes as a real surprise. The only lemon I could see is peel as a component of cola and in the lingering oily tartness.

3.14/5  rDev -16.3%
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.

4/5  rDev +6.7%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

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.
