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.

On tap at Brewdog Bristol -- given as a 25mL pour into a snifter. This is beer in liquor form. Hops are concentrated but not harsh. The alcohol is concentrated but not harsh. An intense beer throughout. Quite the experience.

Drank 28-3 @Majid the night before going to Struise. Very special. Very, very sweet start. Then some metally liquorice. Not really beer anymore. But very rich taste.

kkearn (1165) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 19, 2010
Sample from bottle, at pre-ZBF March 5th, 2010. Pours orange-amber, topped with a minimal head of off white bubbles. Fairly intense earth hop aroma, with notes of orange rind, whiskey, and plenty of alcohol. Flavor is super hoppy as well, coating the palate with earthy resin. There is some overripe fruit, as well as herbal and nutty notes in the background, but the flavor is still heavily hop focused. This is quite warming, with a good amount of alcohol burn. Thick, viscous mouthfeel. Finishes with earthy hops, menthol, and alcohol. This was better than I expected, but I enjoyed the Tactical Nuclear Penguin a bit more.

I tried this beer on January 17, 2011 at "The Beerbistro" in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The beer was a translucent golden red with no head. The aroma was alcohol, pine, and hops. The mouthfeel was full bodied with no carbonation and burned going down. The flavour was citrusy hops and tons of alcohol.

The_Bish (1123) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 18, 2013
Shared with the delicious Domnik and delectable Danyul. Relatively acceptable and more of an experiment than a gimmick. I liked it, warming and went down fairly smooth. Hard to rate with numbers.

Pours clear copper like whisky. Aroma very toffee like aroma with ethyl alcohol. Taste is a syrupy toffee, some burning alcohol. Nicer than anticipated

GenkiGonzo (1091) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 15, 2015
Draught at Brewdog Edinburgh. Pours like a ruby whisky. Super malty aroma. Really surprised that it actually tastes like a beer rather than a spirit. Loads of burnt orange. Very smooth.

Interesting curiosity, tastes like beer, not like any kind of spirit I have tasted. Malty, rich. Surprisingly not very alcoholic taste.
