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.

Bottle: words fail me. I havent the ability to describe the ecstatic experience a beer geeks palate goes through when it meets this glorious elixir. All I come up with is; intense, crazy hopping but balanced with super rich malting, peaches, citrus, malt to the max....like a west coast DIPA liqueur. For the price, Id rather buy a bottle of this than malt scotch...this is the most intense IPA you will ever encounter.

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.

tlind2 (1645) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 6, 2015
Shared [email protected], Helsinki. Copper color, no head. Strong piny hop aroma, alcohol. Strong, bitter herbal flavor with aniseed. Medicinal alcohol reminiscent of Unicum. Very full body, no carbonation. Disappointed: I enjoyed Tactical Nuclear Penguin, but I wouldn't buy this again.

330 ml bottle at home, shared with close family and shared from a sniffer glass. This beers pours deep dark amber. Nose is alcohol burn and soy sauce, completed with chocolate and slight vanilla. Body is even worse; despite the initial salty caramel, hopiness is just too too much, not to mention the alcoghol buuuuuuuuurn... Worth the try... for once, just because of the experiment... *SIGH* nothing beats the Struise Messy...

An imperial ipa, no its a spirit ! Although there are hop notes, its the sweet candied booze that dominates. Its an experience !

weaselkenievil (1608) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - JAN 23, 2012
Bottle shared at MesandSims wedding. Sorry, dont know who shared it with me. Pourty a dirty looking pale brown amber with no head. Almost normal aroma wise, nice amount of hops for sure but major alcohol lurking in the shadows. Flavour has caramel, honey, walnut. It burned my lips. Dangerous stuff. Thanks but Id probably leave this experiment next time, interesting to try though.

GlasgowTAD (1581) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - APR 2, 2015
Pours a clear bronze with no head. Aroma is packed with mango and tropical fruits. Tropical fruits are picked up on the taste rather quickly bt soon the alcohol heat/burn overwhelms everything. Great as a spirit and as an example of brewing achievement but apart from aroma it does not possess much beer qualities

Det hr var en spnnade upplevelse, flera hade tidigare sagt att den bara smakade sprit, som tur var hll jag inte alls med. Jag tyckte verkligen att det hr var en god l med mycket smak av humle och lakrits. Men som sagt det hr var en trevlig upplevelse som jag grna om och den gngen kanske man kan ta mer n endast 1cl.

olliejobbins (1578) - Dorking, Surrey, ENGLAND - FEB 19, 2013
small measure at brewdog Newcastle. Clear amber with legs similar to Courvoisier or similar. Aroma of alcohol and minimal hops if any. Taste is similar with a very warm liqueur taste and alcohol rather than that of beer. A novelty.

2 oz. sample. Gorgeous honey pour with no carbonation. Beautiful legs on the glass. Aroma is spicy hoppy, and alcohol hot. Hops just ooze out of the aroma of this. Resin and citrus and spiciness. Flavor is knock you on your ass hoppy at the front, but surprisingly smooth for all of that. Hop bitterness is present for sure, but is not as concentrated or harsh as I was expecting. Spicy is the best word. This is like concentrated hop juice. Not sure if the hops are masking the alcohol or if it really is that smooth, but the alcohol burn was minimal. Impressive beverage. Very tasty.
