COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The End of History: The name derives from the famous work of philosopher Francis Fukuyama, this is to beer what democracy is to history. Fukuyama defined history as the evolution of the political system and traced this through the ages until we got the Western Democratic paradigm. For Fukuyama this was the end point of man’s political evolution and consequently the end of history. The beer is the last high abv beer we are going to brew, the end point of our research into how far the can push the boundaries of extreme brewing, the end of beer.

Thanks James. I’m not sure where to start with this. Clear brown, like flat cola. Nose is sweet, smokey, with alcohol burn. Tastes of sweet smokey alcohol. This is pretty harsh. I’m glad I got to try it, but wow.

Bottle at James’ house for the End of History tasting. Pours a clear cola brown. Big warm chocolate, cocoa, warm alcohol and umami and soy sauce. Medium to thick bodied, certainly some alcohol, but it’s not unpleasant in small sips. Soy, mushrooms, tobacco, leather, jerky. Warm and boozy, but lots of chocolate, smoke and tobacco. Lingering alcohol, along with chocolate and cocoa powder. Nice stuff.

Small sample via JtClockwork. Viscous mahogany color with layers of raisin, leather, burnt wood, rotten dates, lots of boozy heat, toffee, very boozy and unique. Fun to get to try !

Jesterdeal (1984) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - OCT 3, 2014
Small sample generously shared by JTCLOCKWORK via Jeppe. Aroma is dog biscuit, soy, leather, Asian mushrooms, beef, and sweet chocolate. I mean what? Viscous and thick muddy brown, this thing coats the glass so I had to lick it clean. Taste follows suit with mushroom, tobacco, kibbles, leather, and beef. Mouthfeel is surprisingly smooth and mellow given its gravity. Aftertaste is like beef and chocolate. Overall, not as gross as I was anticipating. A rare treat to try this. Thanks, James.

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.
