The front of the label says "Product of Scotland" while on the reverse is says "Produced and bottled by Evil Twin Brewing at BrewDog, Aberdeenshire, Skotland." I guess that in many ways the influence of the Danelaw can still be seen in Scotland.

Anyway, the color looked like a stout and not like most bottled black and tan and tans that I've had, most of which look like thin porters. The very thin head was mostly white with some yellow tinges to it. Some dramatic laces here and there. The smell of pine, brown sugar, some dark rum and a bit of vanilla. The taste was a little off balance: more of a blackened imperial IPA than an imperial stout-imperial IPA 50/50 mix. Not that I'm complaining, because the flavors were bright, clean, and long-lasting: slightly burned dark chocolate, oily espresso, pine, orange zest, crispy pancakes, more darkened sugars. Let it get warm, and after some time the carbonation, which was too sharp at first, will no longer get in the way of these flavors.

That said, I paid $8.00 for a single bottle; I'm not too sure about that element of this Scots-Danish brew.
