Brewed at Red Duck by Christian Skovdal Andersen of BeerHere and Scott Wilson-Browne of Red Duck.
One of the signs that the end of the world is coming is when the Fenris Wolf eats the sun. And that is Ragnarok for you, here one day, gone the next. Ragnarok, from Norse mythology is the final battle of the Gods, in which most are killed, and the Earth is destroyed. It would be the end of the world as we know it. But the outcome isn’t all bad, as a few Gods survive, as well as 2 humans who are able to repopulate a new and cleansed world.
Ragnarok, the beer, is a Belgian Quadruppel kind of ale, with an incredibly small amount of dried chilli added. You won’t feel like you have eaten the sun, just some Godlike warmth, and we are sure that this ale will rock your world...

Pours murky brown with no head. Nose shows brown sugar, golden syrup, figs, sultanas and some spicy clove notes. Really nice. Similar flavours but not as refined. More spicy cloves, brown sugar and figs but there’s some solvent-like alcohol in the finish. Completely flat, no carbonation whatsoever which ruins it.

Bottle from Slowbeer. Deep mahogany-red, no head, very little carbonation, maybe my bottle was a bit old. Raisins, spices, some licorice, obvious alcohol, syrupy sweet caramel, couldn’t taste the chili.

Bottle, 13C. Lovely clear deep copper with an off white head that disappears quickly in a La Trappe glass but sticks around a bit longer in a more forgiving tulip. Aroma of raisins, figs, red wine, pickling spices. Slightly syrupy, prickly carbonation. Taste has caramel, dried fruit, plenty of alcohol, spices. Not much yeast presence although getting the sediment into the second helps. Quite Christmas ale like. Dries out a fair bit at the end leaving spices and some heat from the alcohol (which I don’t love but it not out of whack for this sort of thing). Was hoping the "incredibly small amount of dried chile" here would mean earthy fruity flavours like a mulato chile but there’s a lack of sweet fruity earthy depth. Not a knockout but enjoyable enough.
