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.

Adenila (1557) - DENMARK - APR 14, 2011
Sampled at "the strongest beer in the world" tasting session on Ørsted Ølbar. Its clear golden and looks very sticky, no head. The aroma hits you with a mix of herbal juniper, loads of hemp and of course nostril ripping alchohol fumes. The flavor reveals a super intence and high amoung of hops, which almost makes the bitterness more noticeable than the alchohol, almost. It is all in all more balanced than i thought because of the bitterness and in the end it was actually a great little sip.

TheJestersBeer (2130) - SWEDEN - MAR 31, 2011
Bottle (rat?). Pale yellow, no head. Malty, fruity nose, with aromatic yeasty notes, alcohol, oak, spices. Full bodied, dry, almost no carbonation at all. Very intense, burning alcohol, wood, malt, yeast, aromatic. Long, lingering aftertaste with lots of wood and alcohol. Interesting, yes. Fascinating, yes. Very drinkable - not really. (2010-09-30)

Scopey (7375) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 12, 2010
Small taste from bottle at Brewdog AB:04 launch, White Horse. Colour deep amber, non-existant head and carbonation. Nose; deep burn from alcohol, fruity, wood, varnish, aromatic. Taste; unsuprising overpowering alcohol and hop burn, hardwood, varnish, fruity, syrupy and medicinal. Glad to have had the opportunity to taste it, but not what I would describe as drinkable!

Rune (8466) - Tromsø, NORWAY - NOV 16, 2010
Just a small taster during Ølbutikkens great tasting session of the strongest beers in the world arranged at Ørsted Ølbar in Copenhagen. Clear gold-amber body. Naked surface. Smell of bready malts and heating from the alcohol. Brandy-whisky like taste with more alcohol heating. Exciting, but really not very drinkable, 06.11.2010.

faroeviking (10288) - FAROE ISLANDS - NOV 16, 2010
De botella, huge thanks to Pinball for this sample. Deep golden colour, no head at all. Very sweet alco herby bit fruity strong alco aroma. Explosive, thick mouthfeel. Sweet alco bit fruitish burning flavour, the maltiness in found somewhere in the alcohol. Alco warming well lasting finish. The strongest and best of the strongest beers of the world (20 + % by vol.). A lot better than the German (Schorsbräu) ones.
