4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: DEC 22, 2010 Deep amber in color with no carbonation. Nose is just awesome. Big hop aroma despite high alcohol - very surprising. Thick, chewy mouthfeel. Nice spicy hop flavor, followed by alcohol warming. Overall a great beer for one this big.

there is no foam or carbon dioxide in the beer. the smell is strongly hoppy, malty and strong. the taste is not surprisingly very strong alcohol, but has strong hop flavor and a sweetness which dampens shock of alcohol. They classifies itself as a Quadrupel ipa. a truly extreme beer experience. drinking only a few cl. the most surprising enough that it tastes like beer, not spirits hops

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Rated on 5-23-2010 - Batch 2 - Best Before 18 03 20. This beer poured into a snifter, forms a very, very small tan head that is long lasting, hazy reddish body, and very little carbonation. The aroma is malty, heavily hoppy, very fruity, spicy, and a big alcohol aroma. The taste is sweet, fruity, spicy, heavily bitter, hops, hot, alcohol burn, and a dry finish. The palate has a warming sensation and this beer is medium-full bodied. This beer is just insane! I enjoy drinking very strong beers, but this is a bit too strong even for me. I was barely able to finish my pour.

375ml bottle. Pours a clear deep copper, viscous and with no head. It looks a bit like slightly carbonated whisky. Oily resinous hops, with orange and aniseed notes and a little roast almond make up the aroma. Whisky-like heat up front brings plenty of aniseed. Oily resin comes in next, with burnt caramel and orange in the mid-palate. Cointreau orange gives it a smooth finish. This is an interesting experience, a little like a blend of good Scotch and potent IPA. It certainly shows its strength more than Tactical Nuclear Penguin, but that means it is one to sip and savour. Nice.

Sampled at CBF 2011.
Hops dissolved in alcohol, earthy notes, pine, orangepeel.
Hazy brown, hop oil trace on top.
Strawberries, chocolate, pipe tobacco, grass, earth layerd on.
Alcohol burn - it is like drinking a aroma test set.
Solid mouthfeel, jams the palate.
Hardcore hop aftertaste.

Paura e delirio con Brewdog! Ne avrei bevuto volentieri più di assaggino. Aroma di legno profumato e caramello. Gusto caldo e avvolgente, con varie stratificazioni di amaro, note di caramello, frutta e leggere di torba. Sembra quasi di bere una inconsueta rivisitazione di un cognac luppolato. E stranamente beverino, considerando il grado inquietante di cui fa vanto.

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

Brewdog sink the bismarck. 41 %. IPA. det første jeg kunne dufte da jeg åbne flasken var den her maltsødme som mange af de her stærke øl på over 13 % tit har. smagen er super god sød stærk og bitter

En udvanlig stærk sag, som kun bør nydes i små mængder. Sjovt indslag, men er smagt bedre.
