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.

Bottle generously shared by yespr at Ølbutikken, Very appreciated. Pours an amber colour with no head. A strong alcoholic aroma with a lot of fruity sweetness and a hoppy kick hits the nose. Flavour is dominated by alcohol, with notes of hops and a hint of caramel and toffee. Very intense and with a long lasting after taste and throat burn.

Copper orange beer with no head, some bubbles. Leaves angels tears on the glass. Deep caramel, syrup and ripe orange fruits on the nose. Mouth feel is thick and soft and full. Very nice syrup and caramel taste combined with a deep bitter finnish. Ripe sweet orange fruits again in the flavors. As a whisky drinker and an IPA lover I am just so excited about this drink! This is a truly pleasant surprise for me. I love it! It’s just so unique and exciting.

Bottle. Aroma of honey, caramel and full of alcohol. Taste is bitter, light sweet. Very boozy flavor, harsh and hot. Also some herbsherbs, caramel and hops. Hard to drinking.

Share with Bish and Danny. Andy had some too, bet he didn’t see himself doing that when he left the house. Think numbers speak for themselves really Thomas, as someone who got a B in A Level maths I thought you’d know that.

alteregoo (673) - POLAND - APR 15, 2016
UPDATED: APR 17, 2016 Klarowne, bez piany, bursztynowe. Aromat przywodzi na mysl najlepsze angielskie BW w typie K31 z wyraźniejszym alkoholem. Praktycznie bez gazu. Mocno alkoholowe a zarazem chmielowe w smaku, karmelowe, z wyrazna goryczka na finiszu.

Darkred clear, no head. Strong alcohol with a hint of raisins in the aroma. Cough-drop, liqruish and hops in the aftertaste. Can not recommend more than one glass of this.

Nip in Edinburgh ... Basically a Quad IPA liqueur ... Lovely rose color... No head at all. Prominent alcohol nose... Super concentrated hop notes... Moderate legs... Full flavored, long bitter dry finish... Almost a single malt with hops to finish ... Very unique and interesting beer... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours clear copper like whisky. Aroma very toffee like aroma with ethyl alcohol. Taste is a syrupy toffee, some burning alcohol. Nicer than anticipated

2 bottles from BrewDog shared between our small beer club. Poured dark amber colour with no head. Intense whisky/brandy alcohol nose but some fruit in there too,plums maybe.First tastes of brandy/whisky alcohol with the plum flavour there too.Cough syrup in amongst these tastes and also a hop prescence which was quite strong.With a little warming more alcohol at the end and also malt and toffee too.Like the TNP this was different to what we expected although not quite as much as before having been surprised by that earlier tasting.This was also an aged bottle but i doubt that in this case as with the TNP it would make much difference to this style of beer.Again,everyone enjoyed this tasty warming drink but as with TNP due to price etc probaly a once only experience for us.Having said that,as with a lot of things in life its there to be tried and must be done.
