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.

Ungstrup (29334) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 9, 2010
Entered to celebrate my rating number 18,200. Bottle 15/12. A golden beer with no head, but long clear curtains from the thick alcohol, when swirled in the glass. The aroma has strong notes of alcohol - so much that it burns in the note combined with sweet notes of rabbit pee - reminded me of cleaning out for my rabbits when I was a kid, berries, caramel, and fruit. The flavor is sweet with strong notes of the alcohol combined with notes of berries among them strawberries, fruit, caramel, and wood, leading to a dry and very alcoholic finish. The body is extremely strong - the alcohol burns on the lips and a lot in the throat. This beer offsets anything known, hence it is very hard to grade on a beer scale. Extreme, but interesting. Thanks to James and Mikkel for making this happen - what a night.

Papsoe (25085) - 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

7th September 2010. The Rake Brewdog Event.
Thanks to James for sharing this with us and also to Tom for a generous measure! Crystal clear bright gold beer with a real presence of colour. Looks good even in it’s plastic cup. No head whatsoever! Aromatic nose - floral sweetness and a little herbs. Smooth but very dry palate. Spicy alcohol start but if you endure and keep it in the mouth there is some nice passion fruit and a hint of something medicinal. Some hop bitterness and then a big kick of alcoholic heat. Lingering spicy warm aftertaste. Strewth! A complex beer and I don’t think I got everything from the small sample so looking forward to spending some more time with this one day, letting it breathe and see what happens!

tiniest sip thank to some very nice guys and then a lucky win on raffle number 2 ... at cloisters AB:03 launch ... dark amber ... big peach ... little cheese ... little apricot ... little funky barnyard that i expect from sour but there is no sour ... nose ... peach ... apricot ... how odd ... how fruity ... hint of apple ... big explode in mouth flavour ... spicy hop ... little chilli finish... quite firey ... i think this could be even better than the bismark ... but I’ll never afford enough to be sure 4.3 ... what really got me was how much summer fruit character this had... ok empty glass with tiniest drop of water to rince ... lost little spice and fruit from nose ... much more funky barnyard dominated... soft peach ... little funk persists ... spice all but gone ...ok but think better neat
