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.

Being a scotch drinker I really appreciated this. It didn’t just taste like beer extract, but like a complex scotch with smokey and hop flavors mixed in. Great job.

Bottled. A bottle brought from Slovakia to Canada for my friend Erik for his 40th birthday. Batch 915. Best before forever. Just kidding. Best before 2025. Pours a black and brown color. Pours like sirup, oil. Aroma of roasted malt, espresso, dried plums, licorice, plum marmalade and tons of booze. Epic! Taste is sweet, chocolate, plums, dried fruits, imperial stout, molasses stickiness. Dry boozy chocolate bitter finish. Epic experience!

Bottle to share. Pours black with no head. Aroma full of alcohol, licorice, dark chocolate and coffe. Full body, quite flat. It tastes mostly alcohol and coffe. I enjoy my Frank Zappa albums much more than I enjoy this beer.

Taster at Oluhuone Kaisla. Intense dried plums and dark fruit, strong booze, some stingy acetone, spices. Unsurprisingly feels like a schnaps. Goes down easily though, warming and smooth. Sticky and oily, though. Qualifies as a worthwhile experiment.

Taster at tap takeover. Deep, dark brown with a tan head. Loads of coffee and malts. Liquorice alcohol with a sweet caramel finish. Very boozy. Obvs.

oldrtybastrd (5003) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 3, 2016
Pours a jet black color, with a reddish brown head. Aromas of espresso/chocolate and roasted malts with a wood like quality. Almost like this was aged in sherry casks. Taste is complex; dark roasted coffee and bittersweet chocolate malt with a smooth alcohol laced bite, also had some Sambuca like qualities, licorice and nut. This was an interesting stout with a flavor like nothing I’ve tried before. Not sure if I would buy it again, but something everyone should try at least once.

próbka z butelki i na pewno więcej wypić byłoby trudno. w aromacie paloność, czekolada i alkohol kojarzący się z brandy. zaskakująco wodniste, sojowe, alkoholowość na bardzo wysokim poziomie, ale to wiadomo z etykiety. warto spróbować

Sampel butelki. Kolor czarny bez piany. Zapach palonosci i alkoholu. Zadziwiająco gładkie i mało spirytusowe jak na abv. Czuć tam stouta, palone slody, kakao. Niezle.

UPDATED: APR 17, 2016 Bez piany, czarne, nieprzejrzyste. Aromat stoutowy z zaznaczonym sosem sojowym, sisem teryaki i melasa. W smaku lekka slodycz, ciemne slody, sos sojowy. Mega geste w idczuciu. Jest alkohol, ale calkiem znosny.
