Whew, don’t try to drink the whole thing. With all the alcohol, it will drink like brandy or whiskey. That being said, it still has some great IPA flavors, just amplified, overemphasizing some of the piney/hoppy nature. Grab about 10 friends, some shot glasses, and add it to the tasting list.

Shared (ofcourse) bottle at Trappistenlokaal ’t Klooster. Liked it better then the T.N.P. Strange how a "beer" this strong can still tast like a beer. Lot’s of hops, but still room for more flavoures... Funny,strange, glad I tried it.

Bottle 330ml @ Patricks Pub og Restaurant, Kristiansand
Pours clear amber with no head. Aroma has notes of alcohol, malt, caramel, herbs, grassy and fruity hops. Taste is medium sweet and heavy bitter with an insanely strong and bitter finish. Body is full, texture is sticky, carbonation is flat.

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

I really loved the kick and intensity and in particularly the spice.

Bottle @ UDRM, Oirschot. Hopflowers and peach in the glorious aroma. Grapefruit. Pineapple, peach, loads and loads of malt, fresh hops. You almost forget the alcohol. Concentrated op hopbitterness, floral and fruity hop flavors, hopoil, tropical fruit. Very intense fluid, but it is impossible to finish the bottle.

Had this one in Scotland and UDRBM, Oirschot. Orange colored brew. Intense hopped aroma, very nice. Overwhelming, the alcoholic boom too. Flavor is hopped all over, grapefruit, pine, peach, malty. It’s like hopjuice on steroids. Sip this one, but not all at once ;)

Brewdog beer tasting Oslo------ Nose is vanilla, strong vanilla, competing with the intenseness of amarillo. No head, pours red, yellow, copper is what im trying to say, back to the nose, Hops, orange, resinous, orange peel, lemon zest, best nose ever. Taste is salty, orange rind, biscuit, malt, vanilla, strong vanilla undertones, definitely alcohol all over the place that probably should have been mentioned first. Lots of amarillo. incredibly sticky mouthfeel. really sticky long bitter finish. An experience. Some sort of mix of beer and scotch.
