3.65/5 rDev -2.7%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
Gorgeous looking beer. Opaque black with dense off white head that goes the distance and leaves plenty of lace.
Sweetish cola malts, coffee grounds, and some charcoal on a background of warm alcohol.
Taste is fairly sweet and smoky. Standard porter goodness. Hints of peat and carob, not a lot by way of bitterness in either roasted malt or hops and falls down a touch here for me. Lingers fairly sweet and smoky. Sweet and smoky the whole way really. I'm really trying to taste for more in here but there isn't a lot.m. Quite drinkable though. A good sessionable drop.
Feel is a touch thin for the style, minimal carb but quite smooth. Even with the sweetness it is not cloying and the roasted malts are far from astringent.
A very nice but standard London style porter.

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.
