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.

Part of a bottle, 6th February 14, Beer Temple, Amsterdam. Great bar, had to try this. Aroma is intense, booze soaked fruit, taste is warming, dark marinated fruit, like a port, but still bizarrely keeps some beer character. Would have been nice to drink a bottle.

Shared bottle @ Gallows Bird, Espoo, RAF2011, January 2011. Pours a dark, wooden brown, not much of a head. Aroma is dark malts, booze, liquorice, boozy. Taste is very boozy, some dark maltiness and roast, some wooden notes.

wasnt expecting something this good, so good. a mighty malty monster that could kill a goat at 20 paces... well perhaps not but it is a powerful smell and the taste is just as good, a bit like jagermeister mixed with nethergates old growler, dangerously drinkable for its strength what a winner!

horrible! too strong & too sweet. ’pushing the boundries’ for the sake of it. better off buying a decent rum or brandy.

Tastes like balsam, dark, uber intense and complex aroma. Sweet and complex body. Aftertaste changes every second leaving feeling of disappointment, cuz the beer is gonna run out eventually.

Piero1987 (571) - Sottochiesa, ITALY - DEC 3, 2013
Brown with no head. Nice malti and whisky aroma, powerful with lot of alchol and fruit under spirit. At taste is very drinkable but too strong with many alchool, very nice wood and fruit flavour.

StueyD (1070) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - NOV 30, 2013
A very dark brown coloured still beer. A complex aroma, woody, vanilla spice, buttery, vegetal, meaty, cherry fruit, vinous and amongst all of this there is a hint of malt, did I miss anything? Thick full-bodied, syrupy mouthfeel. The taste is exactly the same as the aroma, a Marmite meaty flavour, woody, vanilla, vegetal and a touch medicinal. Fruity, cherry brandy and a sherry vinous flavour, with a little sourness towards the end. The finish is long, slightly sour and full flavoured.
