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.

Sampled at Brewdog dinner at beerbistro. In terms of the brewdog crazy strong beers, I liked this one better than the Bismarck. Dark reddish-brown colour with zero head. Aroma is alcohol, coffee, and strong whisky notes. Flavour is smoked malt, coffee, heather, whiskey, alcohol. Alcoholic finish. Intense imperial stout. Like the Bismarck, to be drank like a scotch instead of a beer, but intriguing.

ekstedt (6089) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - OCT 9, 2010
Bottle (33 cl) shared with some dudes at Rotary Pub, Göteborg, Sweden. Dark reddish brown, no head. Strong harsh charcoal and smoke aroma, with heavy alcoholic notes. Extreme unpleasant bitterness. Hugely undrinkable.

Thanks to my buddy Matt for bringing this over. Pours viscous black with no head or carbonation. Nose of smoked meats and scotch. A great sub for scotch and a cigar!

Leighton (14835) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 16, 2010
Bottle at the Ginger Man, NYC. Pours reddish-brown with a slight, tan head. Strong roasted malt aroma with smoke, peat and booze. Flavor is intense and fairly sweet, with more dark malts, some caramel. Full bodied with almost no carbonation. Finishes with some boozy burn and lingering smoke and peat notes. Pretty good.

bottle at Patricks. Dark amber colour with no head. Aroma is alcohol, coffee, heather, whiskey. Flavour is smoked malt, coffee, heather, whiskey, alcohol. Alcoholish finish. Intense imperial stout. Nearly too much in my opinion.

Sampled this nuclear drink at the Brewdog meeting at Craftheads back in feb. 2010. Truly a mindblowing brew. Difficult to classify as "beer" but works well as a bridge between whiskey and beer. Very very strong alcohol flavors...but fun to share and sip!

Ljunkan (530) - NORWAY - SEP 4, 2010
Darkbrown color, no head. Whisky, smoke, tar, vanilla in the aroma. Also some chocolate and toffee. Flavour is whisky, chocolate, toffee and vanilla. Medium to fullbodied, very soft carbonation. Fun to try!

Nose is like a beef jerky liqueur, taste is hot, hurts the lungs, very smoky, complex, should suck but is actually very damn good.
