COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottled
The Bottle label claims an abv of 65%.

"The world’s strongest beer at 65%. Ingredients include crystal malt, wheat, flaked oats and of course 100% Scottish spring water. We then freeze ferment the beer to bring up the ABV. Consume this like a fine whisky. Despite being 65%, the beer has a lot of flavour - malty, hoppy, slightly sweet and lots of yeast still in the beer. Be careful though, smelling it is probably enough to put you over the limit!"

Flavor is malty, sugar, caramel, bready, nutty, bitterness, spruce, wet wood, booze. Full body, fat oily mouthfeel, flat carbonation. Allthough strong, imo not near the 65%ABV. 200614

I was a dumb ass that paid for this. No way this is 65%. When i contacted them on facebook and called them out mentioning that tactical nuclear penguin lit on fire and theirs did not they blocked me from commenting. I have another bottle and will be paying to have it tested and will send results.

kidmartinek (3654) - austin, Texas, USA - FEB 26, 2014
Pours like blonde yeast gelatin suspended in a caramel malt felatin. Boy, this stuff is thick. The aroma is old textbooks and libraries reminiscent of college awesomeness. The texture is like 80w90 gear oil. It leaves clear sediment on the glass. The smell is that of a scottish ale with oak, peat and earth and more peat. Its decidedly smooth on the palate. Thick as pudding. Flavors of toffee, caramel, gelatin, and a hop syrup reduction abound. Amazingly drinkable if the strength advertisers true.

thewolf (11184) - Kolding, DENMARK - FEB 22, 2014
Bottle, bought @ YNWA Beershop. Pours clear dark amber with a small, creamy white off-white head. Aroma has caramel, sweetness, raisins. No carbonation, oily and dry mouthfeel. Flavour has caramel, vinious, sharp, dry, horrible.

kevinator (909) - The Colony, Texas, USA - JAN 1, 2014
Well, I can say I had it. Aroma was sweet and malty and a little offsetting. The color was amber but had a lot of debris and this was from the beginning, not just the bottom of bottle. No head whatsoever. The palate was oily and smooth without carbonation. The flavors were mixed and a little unbalanced. It was boozy up front and not like a spirit, which is what I was expecting. Sweet malts with a slight hops bitterness but not that good. Regarding the 65% ABV, I would agree with the other reviewers. I highly doubt this beer meets the claim and that’s based upon how I felt after drinking a bottle.

fonefan (35055) - VestJylland, DENMARK - NOV 21, 2013

Bottle 330ml. @ [ pre-TSODRBSG13 ], Ulfborg.

Clear light medium amber colour with a small, fizzy, virtually none lacing, fully diminishing head. Aroma is moderate to heavy malty, bread, dried fruit, earthy malt, caramel, sweet malt, sugary, alcohol. Flavour is moderate to heavy sweet and moderate bitter with a long duration, earthy, wood, harsh bitter, tobacco, spruce. Body is medium to full, texture is oily and sticky, carbonation is flat, finish feel is light alcoholic. IMO. not even close to 65% more like between 15 & <20% [20130830]

Bottled @Beer Hunters
Hazy amber color, no head. Fruity, apple, raisins aroma, like in Russian PET-bottle strong lagers. Medium-bodied. Very hoppy, salty, licorice in the finish. Green apple fruityness. Quite sweet, lacks alcoholic burn. As said, not 65%.
