On-tap; 1/3rd of a pint in Brewdog Glasgow (£3):
Copper amber colour with a thin lacing on top for a head that was a beige colour & wasn't too bad & left some nice lacing too.

Really sweet beer with a lot of malts on the nose and some strong alcohol, although thankfully at least some of this was hidden. There was a good caramel aroma with strong, ripe fruits & lots of depth.

Sweet malts & some alcohol initially, with a little spice, some darker fruits & a touch of spice. I could also detect some caramel & prunes backed with some sugar & a little pepper. The taste was rounded off with some sweet fruits.

Smooth & very strong with a warming alcohol taste that came on top of a full, sweet body & fairly low carbonation.

Quite an enjoyable beer and definitely a strong one that had to be sipped at. There was a lot of depth in the beer with a good combination of big alcohol flavours, sweet fruits & caramel malts all blending well.
