COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Sink the Bismarck! is beer, amplified. With the volume turned full up, it is important you that you be careful with this beer and show it the same amount of sceptical, tentative respect you would show an international chess superstar, clown or gypsy. Sink the Bismarck is a quadruple IPA that contains four times the hops, four times the bitterness and frozen four times to create at a staggering 41% ABV. This is IPA amplified, the most evocative style of the craft beer resistance with the volume cranked off the scale. Kettle hopped, dry hopped then freeze hopped for a deep fruit, resinous and spicy aroma. A full out attack on your taste-buds ensues as the incredibly smooth liquid delivers a crescendo of malt, sweet honey, hop oils and a torpedo of hop bitterness which lasts and lasts.

Boozy unplessant smell...taste is ok. Ive had this beer for about two years. And those two years have helped it.

Brewdog sink the bismarck. 41 %. IPA. det første jeg kunne dufte da jeg åbne flasken var den her maltsødme som mange af de her stærke øl på over 13 % tit har. smagen er super god sød stærk og bitter

En udvanlig stærk sag, som kun bør nydes i små mængder. Sjovt indslag, men er smagt bedre.

Could have been stronger. Shouldn’t have been able jump out of a moving helicopter afterwards, but here we are.

This was a wild experience. Very warming with a heavy dark fruit flavor. Overall not as bad as I thought. Syrupy as well

danlo (1166) - Darlington, Durham, ENGLAND - OCT 19, 2013
375ml bottle. Ruby-brown colour, no head, visibly oily consistency and aroma of alcohol, orangey hop, malt, caramel. Taste is sweetish malt concentrate, molasses, caramel, toffee with a mellow orangey hop edge and grassy, warming boozy notes plus some bitterness. Thick oily mouthfeel, full bodied, low carbonation, alcoholy grassy bitter warming finish. Surprisingly drinkable.

Bottle. Pours dark amber with no head. Aroma of alcohol, caramel, toffee and some fruit. Flavor was intense and strong with caramel, raisins, toffee and had a grain alcohol burn. Full bodied with a sticky oily texture and had no carbonation. Bottle procured from statelineliquors.

KansaiBeerLvrs (2060) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 14, 2013
41%! Quadruple IPA, 65 SEK for 1 cl at Brewdog Stockholm. Amber gold pour, no head. Made with hardcore IPA & frozen at minus 18C four times. Boozy floral aroma vs. Tactical’s boozy oaky malts. Wow, a punch of hops & a nostril burning waft of booze! Sweet malts, caramel but the power of the hops & booze really clears the sinuses. Tactical becomes something close to other liquors but this is off on it’s own unique journey. Try it if you can.

Bottle thanks to Joey. Pours a clear brown with no head. The aroma is a strong smoke, booze, and hairspray. Thin mouthfeel with strong smoke and alcohol burn.
