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.

Tmoney99 (13911) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 12, 2015
Sample shared by alexsdad06. Poured hazy dark copper color with a small frothy off-white head that was mostly lasting with fair lacing. Moderate to heavy earthy hop aroma. Medium to full body with slick texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy smooth bittersweet flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration.This was a solid beer.

Ferris (13583) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 2, 2014
Bottle - Boozy oily hops, earthy and rich. Dark copper. Oily hoppy earthiness, sweet and a bit of rich toasted malts. Complex oily hops and in my opinion quite nice. Boozy and bittersweet finish.

Scopey (13343) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 12, 2010
Many times (including the launch at the Rake), most recently at Brewdog Aberdeen. Pours cloudy orange with non-existant head. Nose; powerful citrus hop, varnish, floral, wood, alcohol. Taste; like hardcore IPA concentrate, great alcohol warmth, citrus fruits (oranges, lemons), varnish, pine. Great fun to drink.

Christian (13085) - Odense, DENMARK - MAY 22, 2010
Amber with a small white head. Malty aroma with citrus hops. Rough on the mouth with hot alcohol and bitter hops. Good job getting so much beer character in a 41% drink! Its a hit

bierkoning (12819) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - APR 14, 2010
Bottle @ UDRM, Oirschot. Hopflowers and peach in the glorious aroma. Grapefruit. Pineapple, peach, loads and loads of malt, fresh hops. You almost forget the alcohol. Concentrated op hopbitterness, floral and fruity hop flavors, hopoil, tropical fruit. Very intense fluid, but it is impossible to finish the bottle.

djd07 (12624) - Houston, Texas, USA - AUG 12, 2013
Bottle thanks to Joey. Pours a clear brown with no head. The aroma is a strong smoke, booze, and hairspray. Thin mouthfeel with strong smoke and alcohol burn.

DSG (12552) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - OCT 15, 2016
[9/27/16] Bottle sample at Brewdog in Brussels. Nice deep reddish amber. Aroma of hops, piney, a bit stale, caramelly malt, and some alcohol (but doesnt smell like 41%). Flavor is very boozy (duh) with sweet caramelly malt, and very bitter hops. Oily syrupy mouthfeel. Extreme and overpowering (burns my lips), but better than expected.

jcwattsrugger (12298) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - NOV 9, 2010
12oz bottle-thanks jtclockwork for sharing-pours no head and orange color. Aroma is initially resin/lemon, 2nd medium malt-caramel. Then iodine/acetone. Taste is biting hops, then turns to grain alcohol, warming/burning all the way down the gullet. Both aroma and taste start impressively, then goes explosively downhill. Initial 9/3/7/4/15=3.8 then 4/3/4/2/10=2.3
