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 manís 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.

Smells decent, but is basically undrinkable flavor wise.

dmac (4501) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - MAR 12, 2015
Sampled at the FF tasting. Poured a dead lifeless syrupy orange amber. Aroma of booze, alcohol, sweetness that eludes to chocolate and a hint of citrus. Flavor is horrible, just booze and no beer notes at all. Palate is just mouth-numbing alcohol. Why even make this??

Bottle courtesy of clockworks at Paulís February 2015 tasting. Pours a deep mahogany brown body with floating stuff throughout. Mouthfeel stings with alcohol burn, shots!, shots!, shots!, mushrooms and leather. Lots of spice.

Ferris (6784) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 10, 2015
Bottle - Boozy brown sugars, liquorice, cocoa and raisin. Clear brown with no head. Dark sugars, raisin, leather, tobacco, malty, hazelnut and a bitter finish. Very liquor like and complex. Worth drinking.

Small handbottle shared by Keir, who got it from jtclockwork - thanks a ton, Keir via James! You guys are the best. Really. Pours a clear bourbon-like color, maybe a bit darker or more íburntí looking. No head. Good lord. This is intense. Burnt sugars, tobacoo, leather, caramel, and fusel alcohol. Not as smooth or satisfying as most liquors, or at least the bottles of whiskey and shit I have around. It burns the nostril and harshes the palate. Medium-bodied, with low carbonation. Holy cow. So glad I got to try this beast, but itís a sort of one-time experience.

Keir (180) - Saint Louis, Missouri, USA - JAN 24, 2015
Thanks James. Iím 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. Iím glad I got to try it, but wow.

j12601 (7386) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - DEC 28, 2014
Bottle at Jamesí 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 itís 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.

Lukaduke (2521) - Portland, Maine, USA - DEC 3, 2014
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 (1985) - 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.
