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.

larsniclas (5586) - Billdal, SWEDEN - DEC 25, 2010
Sampled at SBWF-10 Contained in Susan. Golden. No head. Of course loads of alcohol, but surprisningly also a lot of beer-aroma and -flavour. Fruity hoppiness.

Scopey (6659) - 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 (7956) - 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 (10291) - 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.

TheBeerBabe (6) - Portland, Maine, USA - NOV 15, 2010 does not count
Thanks to the BeerTapTV guys for a taste at the Beer Bloggers Conference. Smells like whiskey. Nice golden color. Taste is of beer and moonshine - it does retain the beery character but burns like a shot. Extremely interesting... would have loved to make a mixed drink with it (with bitters it might have been really weird and rocking) but I doubt I’ll ever get a chance to try anything like that again.

rlgk (10254) - Göteborg/Jönköping, SWEDEN - NOV 7, 2010
Sample at Stockholm Beer Festival 2010. Golden color, no head. Malty aroma. Alcohol flavor, hops, grass, malty. Strong alcohol flavor but still there is a beer feeling to it.

Papsoe (25088) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - OCT 26, 2010
Handbottle. Courtesy of madmitch76. Pours a clear amber with no head. The nose is very boozy with some Calvados accents - the booze makes me cough. Medium body - if at all it makes sense to talk about "body" in a beer like this. The alcohol burns my lips - seriously burns. Again flavours of apple brandy, oops....I mean Calvados. Very salty and minerally with oxidized woody notes. Ends fairly bitter. Not all bad actually - I enjoy these experiments. Thanks for the effort yespr. 261010
