July 26th 2011 (from notes)
A - super deep brown, one finger very tan head and some okay lacing
S - lots of vanilla and chocolate, nice oak, nutty, very sweet, toasted grains and malts
T - nice coffee, milk chocolate, toffee, nutty, vanilla, slightly hoppy, nice Toastiness, great malt and some wood/earth
M - fluffy, well balanced, nice complexity, low acidity, medium long finish and medium dry
D - no matter light or dark big or balanced, this beer is for you.
Final thought - at less than 6% ABV this beer isn't for getting tossed. But at only $4 this is a great beer

650ml Bottle from Brewdog Glasgow (£11, 5.8%):
Dark brown to black a 1.5cm, foamy, light brown head that settles as a nice, thick lacing after a minute.
Slightly sweet with some light coffee & some chocolate coming through on top of some dark malts and a sugar base. The aroma seemed like a creamy one and was very enjoyable on the nose.
Dark malts & faint coffee with some sweetness from some caramel malts. There is a very faint hop bitterness to the beer that accompanies the chocolate and nutty taste of this one, & the beer is rounded off with some faint, background spice at the end.
Ridiculously smooth and creamy with a medium body and light medium carbonation on top of that. The drink proved a fast and easy on to finish with a lot of flavour on the palate and some touches of smoke along with a dry finish helps this one to end perfectly.
Such a good beer & more than worth the steep price with an amazing taste & great mouthfeel. A pleasure to drink from the start & refreshingly enjoyable given the fact the beer was a good session offering with the alcohol content remaining fairly low, particularly for an American craft beer.
