Brewdog paradox which was aged for 9 months in a speyside cask then 9 months in a smokehead cask, then taken to an icecream factory and frozen over the course of 2 weeks, then the non frozen liquid was drained off. Came out at 32% and at time of release was the strongest beer in the world.

Pours very dark brown. Strong alcohol in aroma, burns your nose. Also some caramel and raisin. Taste is strong, sharp. Little bit sourish, pepper, sugar, burned bread. Sticks in your lips, after reveals strong alcohol and stays pungent. Nice liquid to try!

Swaroga (2103) - Gdańsk, POLAND - MAR 20, 2016
Concentrated to the bone, cloying sweet with burned coal and alcohol bitterness and also some coffee like acidity. It’s only possible to sip it very slowly cause it’s almost burning with alcohol and packed thickness. After a while it’s not even enjoyable anymore. Still a good companion with a cigar or a pipe. I also get some soy sauce notes that aren’t delicious.

Quite a nice aroma of port, sherry, red wine, stone fruits. Dark as night with no head. Taste starts malty and sweet, develops to some caramel and then BOOM, burnt paper, char, ash, smoke, accompanied by a huge bitterness. The finish on this beer is brutal and punishing. Nice to say i’ve tried it, but its just too much.

Butelka zakupiona w firmowym sklepie BrewDoga w Londynie. Degustacja z kieliszka 0,1 ml. Gesty likier. Piany oczywi?cie brak, brak wysycenia. W zapachu mocny alkoholowy likier owocowy. Dodatkowo karmelu smaku rozgrzewaj?cy równie? lakierów posmak, s?odk? czekolada i ciemne owoce. 1 shot w zupe?no?ci wystarczy. Wi?cej nie da si? tego wypi? :)

Bottle. Pours dark amber in colour, sticky, no head. Aroma of cherries, caramel, some vanilla. In taste caramel and cherries with strong and long bitterness in the finish, not pleasant.
