COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Fuck the system. Forget what you know. What has been. Bow to no one. History is bereft. Reorder. Disorder. Embrace the unknown. The groundbreaking. The challenging. The ichorous revolution is upon us. Try until your fingers bleed and your mind is numb.Try harder. Try this. Try that. Try the other. Try what hasn’t been tried. Then try again. Keep trying. Forge the new. The molten elixir awakens.

A 16.5% IPA Evolution. Taking our favourite beer style to the next level, Anarchist Alchemist is a triple dry hopped triple IPA. Did not think triple IPAs existed? Neither did we. So we brewed one.

Bottle. Dark Amber body with a tiny beige head. Aroma is strong hoppy with a rich plum note. Taste of burned wood, flowers, pine, apricot. Spices in swallow. Feeling of eating heated marmelade with prunes. In a good way.

In Duvel glass, playing KB Dark Side. Undrinkable. Pure alcohol. One of the worst beer I’ve ever tasted, if it can be called a beer

tmrmwel (1284) - Bergen, NORWAY - APR 3, 2015
Old rating. Batch #185. Pours amber, with a small creamy head. Aroma is tropical hops, roasted malts with caramel and a whiff of alcohol hotness. Flavour is sweet roasted malts and hops, before the hoppy bitterness kicks in with orange peel and grapefruit lingering throughout the finish.

andrew_drinks (234) - Luxembourg, LUXEMBOURG - MAR 26, 2015
Bottle from the BD online shop in 2012... and finally consumed in 2015. Pours slightly turbid, a deep orange like Seville marmalade. Has a classic ’old IP’ nose of candied peel, a mix of caramel and sugary citrus. Medium carbonation. Toothsome sugariness, some more marmalade, barley sugar, boiled sweets, a bit of burnt orange tang. Firm bitterness to finish. Clearly way past its best but actually quite a pleasant drink, like a soft, very fruity barley wine.

Gurthnar (3022) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - JAN 3, 2015
Bottle, aged ~2 years to see what happens. Best before 05/06/2017. Aroma rich malty, fruity, raisins. Lightly hazy orange-amber colour. Taste is pretty strong alcoholic, high hopping still evident, but rather citrusy, zesty, and receding to background. Full malty taste, result similar to american barley wine. Interesting development, showcasing the hops (un)aging.

Bottle by Gurthnar. Pours hazy deep orange color, lightly beige head. Aroma of honey, citrusy, malty, fruity. Taste is sweet, medium bitter, orange, malty, peach. Lot if alcohol in the end.

[6471-20140708] Bottle. Light caramel toffee aroma. Clear, golden amber body with a quick foamy off-white head. Sweet boozy toffee and caramel wood flavour. Medium-full body. Good. (8/3/7/3/14) 3.5.
