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.

Share thanks to petersluhale. Sweet, huge booze, tons of caramel, some dark fruit. Brown color. Huge booze flavor, straight alcohol, and then a face full of caramelized molasses. Warming alcohol (obviously). Lingering heat.

Paura e delirio con Brewdog! Ne avrei bevuto volentieri pi di assaggino. Aroma di legno profumato e caramello. Gusto caldo e avvolgente, con varie stratificazioni di amaro, note di caramello, frutta e leggere di torba. Sembra quasi di bere una inconsueta rivisitazione di un cognac luppolato. E stranamente beverino, considerando il grado inquietante di cui fa vanto.

First of all the aroma is like you stuck your head in a bale of hops. Very viscous, coating the mouth with hop resin and alcohol. Very warming sensation as it travels to the stomach. Overall a very interesting beer.

More of All, thats it. Simply more of all. More sugar, more caramel. A bit like wine. Would rather have this than a whisky.

Bottle, from Brew Dogs grim Manchester pub. From notes. Nose cream, fudge, toffee, caramel, spices, slight brandy. Taste, caramel, hops brown sugar. Alcohol burn high. Overall, the nose is spectacular, the taste less so. Interesting to try

Bottle for Christmas from my uncle! (loveliest ever!) This stuff looks like oily pondwater, smells of botanical disinfectant with a bit of sour milky yeast. But is bz far one of the loveliest liquids to ever touch mz lips. But then i am a complete nutter who loves hops. DEVINE MADNESS

malt, alcohol very very faint whiff of grapefruit, mahogany colour with no head, just tastes like a whiskey hints of cherries with the malt and harsh alcohol overtones, burn in the finish. but you didnt really come here expecting a decent flavour did you?

Bottle at a tasting 15th of January 2011. Surprise entry at the tasting. Aroma smacks you in the face with a grassy hop and alcohol. Taste is very strong on the hops, and even stronger on the alcohol burn, with a spiciness that matches the bitterness. More of an experience than a good beer, definately a novelty, although in my opinion it is MUCH better and more drinkable than the penguin.
