330ml Bottle from Good Spirits Co, Glasgow:
Opaque black with a thumb sized, bubbly beige head that holds well at 1cm & has touches of lacing on the sides as well & looks quite creamy.

Dark chocolate with some sweetness & caramel coming through. There is some smoky notes & darker malts along with some spice & tiny amounts of coffee.

Dark malts & plenty of chocolate along with some smoked flavours along with a hint of bitterness & some subtle hops.

Smooth & well carbonated with some slight fizz & a medium body. There is some touches of bitterness & it's creamy in parts as well.

Definitely not the best Brewdog offering if I'm honest, the beer is fairly easy to drink but it just doesn't grab your attention or stand out from the crowd much. A nice effort & one of the better of the 2013 Prototype Challenge but it's not one I'll be likely to pick up again in truth.

Pours black with a tan head.
Nose shows roasted malt, soft liquorice and a hint of cocoa.
Flavours include a fair bit of dry roast with further hints of cocoa and liquorice. Understated and very well-made.
Low carbonation, perfect.

A - Black color with creamy one finger brown foam. Can`t see any bubbless.
S - Lots of fresh dark fruits, but aroma is not to dominate. Chocolate malt. Very pleasant.
T/M - Lots of chocolate and very refreshing coffee. Right amount of bitternes, really refreshing and drinkable.

O - Really good.
