Zeitgeist by Brewdog
It pours a silky black liquid with a thin white head.
This is the epitome of the book and cover syndrome. The nose is like melon and those old-skool Rosy Apple sweets, it's a candied smell but not synthetically candied despite the quarter reference, there's also some floral notes. When I went back to it half an hour later this fresh fruit smell had evolved into a roasted malt nose.
The palate is floral and appley but the finish has some coffee flavours and black chocolate with a hint of hop and some nice refreshing acidity. This is a beer for all tastes. It seems to combine a good quality lager style with a roasted malt beer and an element of a pale ale, very interesting and layers of flavours.
I'm also very excited to inform you all that 'Sink the Bismark' is en-route from Scotland.. 2 bottles bound for Deveney's of Dundrum.
Shout if you're interested!
