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.

DonMagi (5593) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, - FEB 21, 2010
Bottle at the free sink the bismark tasting at the rake. Im going to rate this fully rather than just alround experiance. Aroma is incredible, massive hops, very piney, citrus, lychee and tangerine, some underlying toffee malt, but its probably the hoppiest thing iv ever smelt. Lightly hazy apperance. Taste is huge, intencly bitter, piney, citrusy, toffee/caramel malt, big peppery hop/alcohol hit. The finish i timed at over 10 mins, i started drinking something else so couldnt say how long, but seriously the longest finish iv ever experianced, dry, massively bitter and fresh hop bite. Perfect mouthfeel for the type of drink. Overall its an absolutly blasting drink, the best drinking experiance iv had in about a year. High 5, chin chin!

Insanely strong boogie. Mean red brown. Malty. Sake. Herbs. Very well intriguing.

Bottle Sharing / Piwne Degustacje Krakw
Kołor ciemnopomarańczowy, nieprzejrzysty. Całkowity brak piany, co jest zupełnie zrozumiałe przy tym ekstrakcie. W aromacie dżem z pomarańczy, brzoskwini i papai. Duża nuta alkoholu, W smaku likier owocowy z dominantą w postaci pomarańczy. Gęste, zawiesiste, mocno chmielone z długą chmielowo-alkoholową goryczką. Alkohol potężny, jak z nalewki owocowej. Do sprbowania w małej prbce niegroźne, więcej niż kieliszek jednak bym nie wypił.

AtronSeige (1422) - Johannesburg, SOUTH AFRICA - DEC 21, 2016
Aroma: Medium-high hops, alcohol. Medium moonshine, medium-light licorice. Appearance: Good legs, Brilliant, dark copper body. No head. Flavour: High "zoute drops", salty licorice, resin. Very high bitterness, Medium-high spiciness. Medium-dry finish with lingering burn, licorice Mouthfeel: Full bodied, no carbonation, high warming burn on the tongue, later heating the belly. Overall: The burn is strong, obviously from the alcohol, but it makes the beer difficult to enjoy. I understand that the type of beer this is acceptable. The beer can almost be a strong sambuca with hops. Although it is an experience, it is not something I will recommend. 50 ml share of a 375 ml bottle. Thanks Bradley and Rob for joining the share. 34C. Experimental Beer 22A. Double IPA

Backlog, ocena przepisana z untappd, w ramach uzupełniania profilu na ratebeer. RAZ trafiłem na naprawdę dobre. Poza tym tylko i wyłącznie alkoholowo-piołunowa rzeźnia. Ehh.

DSG (12576) - 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.

lmojoh (566) - Troms, NORWAY - OCT 7, 2016
UPDATED: FEB 16, 2017 Tap på Grunerløkka Brygghus. Farge mørk rødlig mot sort uten skum. Lukt alkoholen er tydelig, lakris, noe søtlig. Smak markert lakris og alkoholsmak, noe frukt som appelsin og grape. Grei bitterhet. En merkelig øl som bør smakes, men i små mengder

spechtacular (128) - Warszawa, POLAND - SEP 11, 2016
Ciemnobursztynowe, praktycznie bez piany, bardzo oleiste, w aromacie alkohol, karmel, w smaku słodko-alkoholwe, likierowate, bardzo mocno wyczuwalny alkohol. To na pewno jeszcze piwo?

Ocotber 1, 2015. Bottle at SBWF.
Clear amber with no head. Aroma is sweet and boozy with caramel, peach, figs, prunes, some hoppy grapefruit and pine notes. Taste is very sweet, malty, medium bitter and very boozy. Harsh alcohol finish with astringent bitterness, sweet caramel, peach and dried fruits. Full bodied, oily texture.
Sharp and boozy.
