COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Sink the Bismarck! is beer, amplified. With the volume turned full up, it is important you that you be careful with this beer and show it the same amount of sceptical, tentative respect you would show an international chess superstar, clown or gypsy. Sink the Bismarck is a quadruple IPA that contains four times the hops, four times the bitterness and frozen four times to create at a staggering 41% ABV. This is IPA amplified, the most evocative style of the craft beer resistance with the volume cranked off the scale. Kettle hopped, dry hopped then freeze hopped for a deep fruit, resinous and spicy aroma. A full out attack on your taste-buds ensues as the incredibly smooth liquid delivers a crescendo of malt, sweet honey, hop oils and a torpedo of hop bitterness which lasts and lasts.

Mesjasz (1288) - Lodz, POLAND - APR 15, 2016
Bottle. Aroma of honey, caramel and full of alcohol. Taste is bitter, light sweet. Very boozy flavor, harsh and hot. Also some herbsherbs, caramel and hops. Hard to drinking.

Aroma: alcohol, herbs,honey, malty. Appearance: clear amber color and no head. Taste: warming alcohol, really herbal and bitter, quite rough. Palate: full body and low carbonation, bitter finish. Overall: It taste like jaeger, strange stuff, absolutely this is not IIPA.

alteregoo (1204) - POLAND - APR 15, 2016
UPDATED: APR 17, 2016 Klarowne, bez piany, bursztynowe. Aromat przywodzi na mysl najlepsze angielskie BW w typie K31 z wyraźniejszym alkoholem. Praktycznie bez gazu. Mocno alkoholowe a zarazem chmielowe w smaku, karmelowe, z wyrazna goryczka na finiszu.

phfyysik (1102) - Tartu, ESTONIA - APR 10, 2016
Pours golden with no head. Aroma is alcohol, fruits, some caramel, sweetness, hardwood. Taste is strong, hops, a lot of different fruits, lilac. Not very sticky and after taste does not last long. Interesting.

JoTheO (157) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - APR 3, 2016
Interesting beer. Color reminding of an Oloroso sherry, copper red. No head and no lacing. Definitively void of any carbonation... Very salty salmiak taste and plenty of hop bitterness, somewhat surprisingly. OK, have tried this and fun to offer the rest of the 375 ml bottle to guests and friends, but nothing I will sip on on a Friday evening.

weordie (1040) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - APR 1, 2016
Pours clear copper like whisky. Aroma very toffee like aroma with ethyl alcohol. Taste is a syrupy toffee, some burning alcohol. Nicer than anticipated

Swaroga (2165) - Gdańsk, POLAND - MAR 20, 2016
Surprisingly it has aromas of hops with notes of pomelo and orange peel, mango. Lots of vanilla, cinnamon and resin. Very deep. I was expecting more alcohol. Still its 41% so ...there is enough but the thickness and huge hop burn makes you remember it isnt a typical high abv distillate. Its completely out of this world.

StilleStorm (1468) - Stavanger, NORWAY - MAR 5, 2016
DWF; Bottle 375ml, from Vinmonopolet. Pours nothing, dark brown with no head. Nose is heavy, malt, dark dried fruit and alchol. Taste is tons of alchol and sweet with a bitter, hekken alkohol finish. Body is full, texture is creamy, carbonation is totaly flat. Interresting and enjoyable experiment! Dont run to Kvadrat.

Una autntica brutalidad. Aunque sinceramente no me gust nada y es tan, tan fuerte que lo mejor es tomarse un chupito e incluso compartirlo. No volver a pedrmela.
