2012 Vintage (750ml) from Brewdog's Online Shop:
Another brilliant beer from AleSmith, the quality really shows through with this one and it is remarkably easy to drink despite the fact it comes in at 11% abv. and is packed with flavour. It's more fruity than I was expecting but the balance is great and the carbonation is perfect, helping the beer down far too easily for the strength of the beer. Simply put, this one is a must try for any beer fan and one that was well worth the very expensive price tag - definitely a beer that has aged well since I picked it up a couple of years ago.

The nose represents Belgian yeast with a lot of spicy clove, peppercorn, light banana, bubblegum and an earth tone.

The bottle suggests this be served between 50 and 55F and it is spot on. Too cold and it was just too clovey but as it warmed the sweetness came out. The banana was nice and it has a bit of bubblegum but the yeasty fungus earth tones are not my favorite.
