Start the car. The lights are about to turn amber. Buy the ticket, take the ride. Past the alley where thieves and pimps sell corporate brews and good men soak it up like vermin, blissful in their ignorance. Past the jackhammers who want their three and a half percent. Keep going. Towards that golden orb, the size of Zeus’s ass, that hovers over this crazy town. Sleep late, have fun, get wild, drink amber, and drive like a bastard towards that saintly light.

    Pours clear sepia with a fairly thick and rather persistent light tan head. Aroma presents notes of woody hops, toasted malt, and a snip of caramel. Woody hops dominate the flavor, but share the stage with malt, resin and caramel tones for a very drinkable ale. Body is firm, though fizz is not overly strong; finish has hay and hoppy notes. Early in the morning or late at night, a worthy drink.

    Sampled from bottle. Pours copper-amber with a faint haze. With head and decent lacing. Rich malt aroma and flavor still notable after all the late addition hops. Medium-bodied and smooth. Seems to be a Scottish 80/- malt bill with aggressive American-style hopping. I like it!

    Aroma: 7 | Appearance: 7 | Mouthfeel: 5 | Flavor: 6 | Overall: 7

    Pours an average amount of foamy head and has a dark amber appearance with reddish/brownish highlights. Aromas of citrus hops and sweet malts. Flavours are mainly toasty and nutty malts with very minimal hops. Also some notes of spices and something like celery in the finish. Very much of a salty like taste. Fairly bitter and astringent mouthfeel. More hoppy in aroma than flavour. Pretty weird one here.

    Lightly hazed deep tea brown copper color, short and condensed creamy head, plenty of lacing. Piney and floral, orange and fruity, malts and very light sour nose and initial taste, nice bitter linger, then more malt sweetness, bread and nuts, and a nice finish. Drinks way bigger than 5% ABV.

    Great aroma with nuts and caramel. Looks really nice too hazel color and quite big top which sadly dissapears quite fast. Taste has some hints to cookies and fruits. Really strong and good aftertaste. Great beer.

    Darker redish color with brown solid head, sticky and lacing. Aroma is sweet, with definately some coffee. So is the taste, coffee and bittersweet, nice beer after all. Aftertaste is dominated by that same conbination, bitter winning the end game. (The Hague, 201209)

    surprised to see this one so high - it gave me high expectations that weren't met. 2 months short of the stamped best by date, but it tasted a little stale. biscuit malt forward, with nice bittering hops, but little on the aromatic side. looks and feels average. meh.

    As an amber ale it is killer, but even more so it is an over all impressive beer regardless of style listing. Rich body, hopped up content and it never lasts long in my glass. Cost is prohibitive (as are most anything worth buying from Brew Dog) but it's worth checking out.

    I quite like Stoutlovers root beer reference. It is a bit sweet but not in a pop like way. Great aromas, floral, sweet, honey?, brown sugar, carmel, trace white pepper, really really nice. To the taste, its well balanced, not sweet or bitter, maybe just a touch of a sour ester in the back of the mouth, but not experienced with every bottle. Could have been a touch of residual yeast in bottles from one batch. Orange zest perhaps. Wicked malting, complex, gives you something to hold on your tounge and be interested by, but the lack of anything prevelant makes in extremely drinkable. Like I said, not bitter but dry. I would compare it to a Pouilly-Fume in the wine world, with a touch of added complexity. The hop profile is good but it is the malts that make it. One of my favorite 2010 brews

    Bottle: Pours a hazed amber-red ale in the glass with a 3 finger tight sand-colored cap..great lacing. Moderate carbonation. Aroma is subtle but complex...layered malts and layered hopping..simply frikkin gorgeous. Medium bodied with a rounded character. Flavor has a rich complexity of malts in front that is almost perfectly balanced with a layered mix of hop varieties....biscuit, toast, bready, sweet dough, toffee meets pine, citrus, floral, herbal woody hopping. Clean and distinctive with a demure complexity...great beer.
