Pours dark oak. Texture is very thick. Aroma is sticky of alcohol with prunes, raisins and a bit vanilla(?). Taste is sweet and smooth with dried fruit. The alcohol is well hidden in the flavours. Gives a warm feeling of happiness. This was a huge surprise. I bought it online from Brewdog when i saw they had made a new batch and i dont regret spending £40 on this bottle.

No head, the body is heavy and oily. The smell is of hops, alcohol and rum. So much that burns the nose. Taste of rum, heavy hops and oil. Drink it as a spirit rather than as a beer. Excellent.

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

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sour, sweaty aroma of ipa and sock reduction. Sickly thick sweety hop and alcohol burn monster. Very, very tasty, even if not terribly good smell, but a really pleasing experience.

Bottle shared at home. Pours golden amber. Oily texture and smells of hops and toffee. Described by the taste panel as a well balanced hop liqueur. Prominent alcohol but not to disturbing. A fantastic IIPA. Meant to be shared.

In Denmark, I have gotten a chance to sample a variety of schnapps. This “beer” would make an excellent hop schnapps. The aroma is parfum de houblon. I thought about sprinkling a little behind my ear as pheromones for my husband. The color is like orange Ceylon. The texture was more similar to a liquor. The flavor was full of hop fruitiness with some sweet honey and alcohol sublimation in the finish. Sink the Bismark is pretty delicious, but the thing that was a little off-putting was the syrupy film it left on my tongue. That said, I could see drinking it again as an aperitif for something greasy and uncomplicated from a chip shop or some pork cracklings from a traditional Danish roast.

3.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a deep amber, with no head. The aroma is very intense, very sweet, lots of dried and candied fruits, raisins, apricot, a bit hoppy. Very similar to port wine. The taste is the same, lots of candied fruits and alcohol and a bit of hops. It gives a burning sensation that lasts. Great aroma and taste but dissapointing aftertaste.

Botella. Color cobre intenso sin apenas carbonatacion ni espuma. Aroma intenso a alcohol y maltas caramelo. En boca me recuerda a una barleywine con alcohol extremo con notas resinosas del lupulo, con un final curioso entre dulce alcoholico y seco.
