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.

Ktwse (2240) - SWEDEN - MAY 22, 2013
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... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

kazin (203) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JUN 5, 2012
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.

SilkTork (5277) - Rochester, Kent, United Kingdom, Kent, ENGLAND - JAN 18, 2012
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.

Frenger (367) - Derby, Alabama, ENGLAND - OCT 23, 2011
Bottle at sheffield tap. Pours deep amber with no head. All the smell and appearance of a whisky. Caramel aroma mixed with a lot of booze. Really glad I tried this although it was hard to tell it was a beer.

Bottled 2cl sample @Beer Hunters
Stoat. Claimed to be the last bottle in the world sold.
Clear deep amber color, no head. Strong alcohol, overly sweet, ryeish aroma. Full-bodied, liquerish. Different flavor than aroma ... strong alcohol (vodka), juniper/wood, orange peels, lots of malts, licorice. Warming aftertaste. Better than expected but still once in the lifetime experience.

abemorsten (2916) - Mosterøy, NORWAY - JUN 19, 2011
Pours clear nut copper with no head. Nice fruity, malty and dried fruits aroma. Heavy sweet, boozy, bitter flavors with notes of sweet liquorice and a hoppy acidity. Full body. Oily texture. Alcoholic warmth. Thanks to tarjei for inviting me, and thanks to the winner of Mikkeller bar’s lottery, who kept it sealed until tarjei was in town and then kindly shared. The bottle came with the name of the animal that engulfed it - Susan, which was renamed Susie when arriving in Copenhagen.

Ethereal (2417) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAY 30, 2011
A third of a thimble taster from the stoat at Brewdog event at the Rake, 7th Sept 2010. Bright clear yellow gold appearance - looks like the "yellow oil" that was the desired outcome of every first year organic chemistry practical I did at uni! Grassy, earthy, peppery hoppiness on the nose. In the mouth, there’s an insane level of alcoholic heat - it makes your tongue swell. Orange and pine resin are the dominant flavours. It’s got great legs - the oily palate ensures it coats your mouth and just keeps giving.
