Pours a clear bronze with no head. Aroma is packed with mango and tropical fruits. Tropical fruits are picked up on the taste rather quickly bt soon the alcohol heat/burn overwhelms everything. Great as a spirit and as an example of brewing achievement but apart from aroma it does not possess much beer qualities

Några cl provade på Beer-ditch. Väldigt höga förväntningar. Smakar först bara sprit med en liten touch av salubrin och kungen av Danmark/bröstkarameller. Men när spritsmaken lagt sig finns där en söt, kryddig, karamellig karaktär med toner av toffe som funkar. Eftersmak är värmande, torr, kärv och ganska besk. Gott att äntligen fått prova.

Surprisingly it has aromas of hops with notes of pomelo and orange peel, mango. Lots of vanilla, cinnamon and resin. Very deep. I was expecting more alcohol. Still it’s 41% so ...there is enough but the thickness and huge hop burn makes you remember it isn’t a typical high abv distillate. It’s completely out of this world.

Pours golden with no head. Aroma is alcohol, fruits, some caramel, sweetness, hardwood. Taste is strong, hops, a lot of different fruits, lilac. Not very sticky and after taste does not last long. Interesting.

No head, no lacing, copper colour, aroma of whiskey with a little addition of hops, strong alcohol taste, flat. Not everyday you can try a 41% of alcohol beer, but it’s worth it.

33 cL bottle. Pours cloudy orange with a fully gone head. Aroma is dense grapefruity and peachy, sugarish/dextrose malt sweetness. Alcohol dense, overly solid hoppy and sugarish dense dextrose. Burning alcohol and dark hops flavoured finish.

Tremendous, enormous thanks to TBone who shared this one with us! Poured a red-gold body. Appley aroma hops in the nose, some sweet maltiness too but mainly alcohol. Aromatic hopiness mixing with saltiness in the taste, definitively quite malty too, maybe some notes of caramel. The alcohol is warming. You can definitely feel that this is huge, maybe not this huge but what can I compare it to? Still, I don’t care much for beers with some kind of alcohol presence, and this one fits the bill unfortunately. Still, huge respect and again huge thanks to Timo!

Wouw, this is alchohol. Bitter, and not just from the hops, but also from the alcohol.
This is not beer. The TNP was (not being scientific here).
I liked the TNP a lot, and I had hoped for something fantastic since I am an IPA guy. But dissappointed. Too sweet, too strong.
BUT brewdog - I am with you all the way:)

Bottled. Orange/amber coloured. No head to talk about. Sweetness, spice, alcohol, herbs and flowers in the aroma. Flavour dominated by alcohol, herbs, cloying sweetness and some liqourice. Medium to full bodied. Heavily burning alcohol totally domintates the end. Not my thing. Thx. yespr for sharing.
