3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
4 cl from bottle at Black Door, Helsinki. Bright dark reddish brown color with no head. Sweetish thick toasty toffee aroma with dark caramel, port wine, perfumed berries and alcohol. Thick biscuity and bitter taste with port wine, marmelade and some burning alcohol. Dry charcoaly and smoky finish. Actually quite good substitute for a whisky. There are still some alcohol roughness from young age.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at pre-ZBF, served by Martin, courtesy of Keith - thank you sir! Dark maroon color, no head, no lacing (they both drowned in alcohol). Aroma is prunes, vanilla, dark fruits, brandy. Taste is warm and tingly from tongue to belly, rich dark fruits, raisins, dates. Nothing hidden about this one. Best drunk in front of the fireplace while wearing your smoking jacket.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tasted at PreZBF Festival, Belgium.
Poured near black with a minimal small lacing beige head. Aroma of a very characteristic porter one with a lot of liqueric fruits like plum, raisins, dark chocolate, cocoa. And because of high abv...some scotch or some burned/smoked sprit. Hard texture with roasted tastes like coffee and cocoa and of course, the liqueric, alcohol taste. According to the incredible high abv, the alcohol is well hideden!

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle at Ryan’s Midtown Hotel room tasting post EBF 2010: Headless deep brown. Has a huge ethanol aroma initially. As it breathes some notes of cocoa, peat and quality Scotch comes through. Very hot, burns the palate. Lots of ethanol intially. As it warms and you swirl it a bit more peat and cocoa notes come through, displaying the qualities of an Islay Scotch. Too much burn, but I can see the appeal from a Scotch lover’s perspective.

Tactical; of or pertaining to a maneuver or plan of action designed as an expedient toward gaining a desired end or temporary advantage.
e.g. Brewing the worlds "strongest beer" makes good tactical sense from a marketing perspective.
e.g Having Roberto Luongo as your goaltender in a hockey game is a smart tactical move.
Nuclear; relating to, or forming a nucleus; of, using, or possessing atomic or hydrogen bombs
e.g. An extra game allowed for more time for players to form the nucleus of the team.
e.g. A smokey whiskey filled 32% abv beer is the the nuclear warhead of the beer world.
Penguin; Any of various stout flightless marine birds of the family Spheniscidae, of cool regions of the Southern Hemisphere, having flipperlike wings and webbed feet adapted for swimming and diving, and short scalelike feathers that are white in front and black on the back.
e.g. A penguin makes for a cute mascot that enhances the sillyness and fun of marketing endeavours.
e.g. When not scoring gold medal winning goals at the Olympics, Sidney Crosby plays in the NHL for the Pittsburgh Penguins.
Tactical Nuclear Penguin; A beer that arrives in the glass with a very very dark brown body, and little or no head. 3+ It carries with it a powerfully alcoholic aroma of nuclear proportions, all but smothering light smokey, and rough peaty/iodine like whiskey characteristics. When ingested it camouflages the smokey whiskey character beneath an ever present blanket of alcohol. A moderate, still body.; A beer of acquired taste.
This well crafted Fraserburgh Project leaves my palate feeling like the Bikini Atoll. The booze and whiskey character seem almost engineered to offend my personal sensibilities. Truth be told, had I known what was in the bottle I might have been less eager to acquire one. An intriguing experiment, which packs a flavourful punch, but decidedly not to my own tastes. I got my butt kicked by a Penguin... Huh.
Bottle smuggled into the country from Scotland by Sister of DuctTape.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
It’s too hot for a penguin! And hot it was. Bottle with a big thanks to Ryan at his hotel room tasting after session one of EBF in Boston. Pours a clear brown, still, but with viscous legs on the glass. Wow! Rubbing alcohol. Smells like nothing but rubbing alcohol for the first few minutes. Eventually the beyond the booze there’s a little chocolate and smoke. Really hard to drink, bracingly boozy. Long chocolate finish with a good amount of smoke. As a beer this was kind of gross. Might make an ok scotch, but definitely not my thing. Once my sample was finally gone, and just some lacing and vapors remained in the glass there was some good chocolate and smoke qualities, and the residual bits mixed with water were tasty, but this was just such a challenge to drink and brought me no enjoyment aside from the novelty of it.
