Poured a bottle into a chilled mug.
A: Pours a dark brown with no translucence, like a typical stout. Pours with an amber two-fingered head, moderate lacing with sticky brown resin clinging to the side of the mug.
S: Citrus, chocolate, brown sugar and coffee on the nose. Just a hint of pine resin.
T: Grapefruit and bitter floral notes up front. Then comes the sweet dark chocolate, coffee and malty flavors.
M: Surprisingly light, fizzy and crisp for a stout. Very refreshing.
O: This beer is a bit challenging and confusing at first, but this of the most interesting beers I've tried. It's like drinking two beers at the same time. You get the citrusy hops, like a IPA, then the caramelized maltiness and richness of a stout. Drinks like an ale, with stout-y goodness!

355ml Bottle from Brewdog's Online Shop:
Black with a thumb-sized head that is creamy & holds well, especially over the opening couple of minute. There was very little movement initially & the head smoothed out a little after a bit with some minimal lacing on the sides.
Hoppy & IPA-like to start with some subdued pine notes & bitterness. A strong, darker malts presence with some darker fruits coming in as well with some sweetness that makes the beer seem almost like a porter. There is some grapefruit & pine coming through towards the end too.
Mellow hops with a pine bitterness & a little bit of grapefruit coming through, quickly followed by some darker malts, hints of sweetness & coffee. The beer tasted quite fresh & lively with the hops and malts balancing against each other well.
Smooth with a medium body & plenty of bitterness from the hops throughout, although hints of sweetness make an appearance. Carbonation was about medium with this one & the beer had a good balance too.
A pretty good offering, it's hoppy & packs a punch with regards to bitterness. I enjoyed with one, particularly because the balance was good with the hop bitterness & the darker malts working well together.
