COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewdog paradox which was aged for 9 months in a spayside 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.

Bottle at clocks. Pours a deep amber brown. Aroma is straight shoe polish alcohol. Mouthfeel is horrible. Straight alcohol, heat and shoe polish. Awful.

keanex (1290) - Atco, New Jersey, USA - MAR 27, 2014
Bottle.
Appearance: Deep chestnut body, murky, with no head.
Aroma: Big fruity raisin, big chocolate, soy sauce, roasty and boozy. Sweet aroma.
Taste: Wow, very sweet. Not Southern Tier Creme Brulee sweet, but sweet. Lots of dark fruit and chocolate notably on the intro. This becomes incredibly boozy by the finish with tannins. Reminds me a bit of a boozier World Wide Stout.
Palate: Super thick like cough syrup.
Overall: Super pricey and more of a novelty than anything. I could see this being enjoyed as a cordial or with desert.

Satyroneto (61) - - MAR 14, 2014
Russian Imperial Stout; 32% de alcool; Cor negra sem espuma; Aroma doce, licoroso e intenso de frutas vermelhas/escuras (framboesa, ameixa, cereja, cassis...) e vinho do porto; Sabor de inicio doce seguindo a mesma linha do aroma, evoluindo para meio e fim picante e alcoolico que aquece a boca levemente; retrogosto de leve picardia e levemente alcoolico; Baixa carbonatacao e corpo sedoso, licoroso. Alcool muito bem inserido, sem agredir ou lembrar uma bebida destilada. ---Rated via Beer Buddy by Satyro

From a bottle thanks to Toby(JohnGalt1). Very smokey and boozy smell. Taste was very high in pete malt. Also this beer will light on fire, pretty cool to watch.

Monchito_IPA (114) - SPAIN - MAR 2, 2014
Oscura y brillante, sin espuma. El aroma es alcohólico y dulce, igual que el sabor, donde hay algo de café y pasas. Me recuerda al brandy luis felipe. Otras imperial stout de brew dog menos extremas son más complejas. Para tomar un chupito y decir que la has probado.

hotstuff (3954) - Indiana, USA - FEB 21, 2014
Rated on 7-22-2010 at Ratebeer Summer Gathering in Grand Rapids, MI. This bottled beer pours a small tan head that mostly diminishes. The body is reddish brown, no carbonation observed and virtually no lacing. The aroma is malty, dark fruits and alcohol. The taste is malt, dark fruits and lots of alcohol. This beer has a dry finish. The palate is HOT! This beer is medium bodied. Overall, there is a definite warming sensation with this beer. This is a novelty beer.

hohops (136) - Kent, ENGLAND - FEB 16, 2014
A small measure poured into a snifter. Appearance is very dark brown, vinagery tinges. No head at all, unsurprisingly. Leaves lots of alcohol legs on the glass. Aromas of vinegar, sweet sugar, alcohol, candy, tar, smoky notes, cigar smoke. It almost burns the inside of your nose. Taste- huge sugary sweetness, peat notes, port and brandy notes, thick, syrupy mouthfeel- you couldn’t have too much of this at once. Very interesting and definitely worth trying- it’s a bit like an undiluted stout.
