Sip thanks jeppe. Black pour with no head. Very dark, different deep tones. Burning, warmth, other deep. As a beer, not very good. Liquor, decent.

UPDATED: AUG 11, 2014 Sample with many thanks to Jeppe. Pours dark brown. Nose/taste of extremely strong bourbon, tobacco, cigar ash, deep earth, cocoa, burnt caramel, burnt toffee and very woody alcohol. Full bodied. Lots of alcohol in finish. Puts hair on your chest. Ton of flavor despite the burn.

I was one of the lucky ones in Stockholm. Great and very different kind of beer. And the bottle is something amazing.

Pours a dark brown with no head. Aroma is concentrated with brown sugar, dried dates and figs, raisins and booze. Taste is very syrupy with an oily feel that clings to the teeth. Tastes of raisins, cognac, tar, caramel, burnt sugar, bacon. Very interesting as an experiment.

Finally the End is here! Pours brown with no head. Aroma of alcohol, booze, wood, brown sugar, muscovado, barrels, booze... Taste is creamy sweet, massive at first, then huge alcohol warming lasting finish. Ouch! Body is nearly non-liquid, feel like I need a spoon... Fun to try for sure but not really a great beer...

Sampled at Ørsted Ølbar tasting of the (then) 6 strongest beers. Aroma and taste was overwhelmingly dominated by alcohol and malt. I prefer to compare it to a finer whisky, where it can actually hold its own. An experience.

Brewdog event at the Rake, 7th Sept 2010. With thanks to The Cad for double servings. Alcohol aroma. Some plastic. Fairly clean and pure aroma - distilled. Quite fumey. Marzipan. Pasta. Vodka. First sip was alcohol - clean, mostly neutral and fairly drinkable. There’s an awareness of the beer base somewhere in the pure alcohol and spirit heat - some suggestion of caramel. A nettle like finish that is interesting. Impossible to assess or even pin down as a beer. Perhaps best thought of as a beer liquor, than as a beer. A spirit that has some sense of beer as its origin.
