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.

Marduk (5345) - Reval, ESTONIA - DEC 31, 2015
Poison bottle. Straight from the bottle. Malty, sweet, fruity, oily hops in aroma. Very malty and sweeet and hoppy in taste. Dry mouthfeel. Harsh but full of flavors. Didn’t expect that. Beer is not completely killed and I like it. Sipper.

60ml bottle (Alus Celle, Riga)
Rather pleasant sweetish malty base, but quite a pleasant hop liqueuer on top of that. Same goes for the taste. Does have a big alcohol booze burn if you drink it at above zero temperatures I’m sure (I can breathe fire from it), but I’m drinking this at -10C, and it slips down rather easily as a sipper, as a hop liqueuer. Bitterness is nettley and spicy, but fits perfectly with whatever it is. I was expecting more breadiness, from what others had said. No mind, I liked it as the hop liqueuer.

gueuze (774) - - SEP 24, 2015
Schwarz, Schlieren im Glas. Ohne CO2. Geruch wie ein Lösemittelschlag in’s Gesicht mit Sherrynoten. Im Mund pappig. Im Nachgeschmack dann sprittig. Läuft heiß den Rachen runter.

Idiosynkrasie (5879) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - AUG 8, 2015
60ml [?] phial. Opaque, dark brown colour, no head, everlasting lacings stain the clear glass into brown. Intense cough syrup aroma, nose cleaning menthol or eucalyptus tang, notes of molasses, liqueur, Grand Marnier, Averna, tea, liquorice, sorrel, Scotch thistle, sage. Four staged taste cascade starts with molasses, moves over liquorice and tea to Scotch thistle and sage; a good deal of alcohol, naturally. Hardly to be rubricated under beer; a taste etude nevertheless.

Brandman (2612) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 13, 2015
Deep mahogany body, no head. Aroma has much alcohol, resiny and sweet notes. Much bitterness. Liqourice, some orange. Somehow there is something that reminds me of beer. Harsh.

Vells (1338) - Rīga, Latvija, 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.
