COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION


Watt Dickie is a spirit born out of our stone-faced misadventures in high ABV brewing. The bastard lovechild of the technique we developed to produce idiosyncratic masterpieces such as Tactical Nuclear Penguin, Sink the Bismarck and the infamous End of History a beer which reached 55% ABV.

This is an insanely amplified IPA masquerading as a spirit. A faux spirit, a dead spirit, a new spirit. Born as an India Pale Ale, Watt Dickie then undergoes patent pending (and consequentely for now secret) freezing alchemy which transforms the beer into a high octane roller coaster of flavour, craftsmanship, originality and audacity.

The process condenses & amplifies the flavour, body and mouth-feel resulting in full bodied malty, hoppy rock n roll opulence which is unlike anything you (or anyone else) has ever tasted before. Watt Dickie is uncarbonated and designed to be drunk and enjoyed as a spirit: have it neat, have it on the rocks or even make a cocktail with it.

Vells (899) - Riga, LATVIA - MAR 17, 2015
Nose like superintense barleywine - hoppy, caramel malty. Its quite warming, but ABV goes quite well to this BEER (underline). Lovely maltiness, nice that hops arent drowned in ABV and still delivers awesome fruitiness, dried fruits Quite intense sweetness with solid bitterness. Thick and bit sticky. I loved Penguin, but was quite sceptic before approaching this one, but. .its quite awesome. Love it.

mandaritto (74) - LATVIA - MAR 17, 2015
Aroma - fruity, intense alcohol, malty, caramel. Flavor is intense and complicated. Very strong, manly beer. Although very expensive.

jonnyguns (1096) - AUSTRALIA - MAR 2, 2015
Bottle from mane liquor. Pours dark brown with no head. Lacing is JDizz worthy. Pours like a whiskey. Aromas of booze, honey and peat. Fuck. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bov (10204) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - FEB 19, 2015
from BrewDogs online shop - translucide brown beer with no head retention; apparent alcohol in the nose; aroma of cognac, caramel, nuts and minerals; very salty, oily and without carbonation; late and huge bitterness, dry and very long salty/bitter finish of earth, caramel and with strong warming alcohol notes - pleasant would be exagerated ... really hard to rate this stuff

magicmn (120) - Moscow, RUSSIA - FEB 4, 2015
Depp amber to red colour. Intensive dried fruit and raisin sweet aroma. TAste is overpowered with similar theme - dried fruits and caramel, similar to strong bock but with higher alcohol backbone. Balanced with some hoppines. Still its a very interesting and good beergeek example:)

Bottle from Brewdog Nottingham, 2013 Dark Copper coloured, no head, aromas of malt, toffee, caramel alcohol (lots of it, damp wood, winter fruits, and port perhaps?

olliejobbins (1261) - Dorking, Surrey, ENGLAND - JAN 7, 2015
Bottle at brewdog Nottingham. Pours a thick, syrupy dark orange/brown wi the a few small bubbles on the surface. Aroma is alcohol, caramel and more alcohol. Taste...the texture is similar to medicine and it coats your tongue. You get a little heat from the alcohol. Burnt oak finish. Very interesting and worth trying.

Taste is sweet, malty, toffee, caramel, medicinal, deep woody fruity hoppy notes, warming with grassy bitterness and alcohol burn. Oily mouthfeel, full bodied, low carbonation, warm woody boozy finish. Quite sippable.
