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.

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.

had a shot at a local bar. what could I expect from this experiment. I was surprised to see carbonation at this strong ’beer??’ aroma of caramel. dark fruits, overwelming alcohol smell. citrus, caramel, sugar malt. burns a lot. and a verry dry aftertaste. why should you even call this beer.... anyway, this is far from drinkable. nice to try it for one time.

Very sweet and concentrated. Boozy in a good way, like a good avec or something like that.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
330 ml bottle at home, shared with close family and shared from a sniffer glass. This beers pours deep dark amber. Nose is alcohol burn and soy sauce, completed with chocolate and slight vanilla. Body is even worse; despite the initial salty caramel, hopiness is just too too much, not to mention the alcoghol buuuuuuuuurn... Worth the try... for once, just because of the experiment... *SIGH* nothing beats the Struise Messy...

Thanks Fern! Smells like petroleum, tastes not bad honestly. Kinda sweet before booze overwhelms. Caramel up front, hints of Utopias-esque notes for an instant, then turns to fire as it descends. Much better than expected, especially given my experience with Tactical Nuclear Penguin, but Utopias blows it away.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Very strong aroma. Aromas of caramel. The taste is good, not too much alcohol. The taste is of licorice. The aftertaste is left for a while. Very heavy beer drinking. It was enough 3cl at me. Drank it at Brewdog Bar Stockholm. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

UPDATED: FEB 17, 2014 Bottle. Whiskey with no head appearance. Smells alcohol, sweet, grain. Full mouth feel with stingy alcohol. a lot of licorice, some hops, and nice alcohol burn in the stomach. Overall: super nice, But why not buy whiskey?
