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 at North Bar, Leeds. It is fairly old and had been living in a fridge, so Im giving it the benefit of the doubt. Bottle looks good, pours an amber orange, couple of fingers of head. Aroma is orange, caramel malts, a little hint of butter. Taste is initially sweet, with caramel, butterscotch, toffee, with some hops coming towards the end. Oh, and booze. ALOTTA booze. It seems flawed. Syrupy mouthfeel with a long finish that doesnt have any sense of refinement - its a sugary, bitterish Jackson Pollock. Id expected a lot more.

jinroh (1207) - ESTONIA - SEP 28, 2016
Tried 2012 version of this, so 4-year old. On tap at Carft Heads on the occasion of their 7th Anniversary. Poured dark amber, not much foam. Aroma is rich, sweet and fruity, sort of ripe feel of fruity. Tastes like a hoppy barleywine. Of course, most hops have faded but the beer itself has also mellowed down and achieved a better balance - but on the sweeter end. Something is still left of hops, mixed with booze bitterness. Overall feels like a barleywine - but like a very good barleywine.

Not my cup of tea, too strong in alcohol. However, nice notes of toffee, oily body, lingering aromas.

weark (645) - Morges, SWITZERLAND - OCT 18, 2015
Bouteille achetée chez Erzbierschof - De couleur ambrée trouble avec une fine mousse blanche qui redescend assez vite - Au nez très malté, des notes de thé, de sucre, l’infusion de houblon, abricot, pêche - En bouche des tonnes de malt, forte infusion de houblon, difficile à trouver autre chose tellement c’est puissant - Corp ample, amertume forte, carbonation correcte, sucrée et liquoreux, final explosive ... - exceptionnel mais très difficile d’accès

From the very old notes, hence this is not a real rating, but more just a mark to myself that I have tried this at one point. The beer was very sweet and very hoppy. I kind of liked it.

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
