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!

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.

Clear amber, no head. From 25cm away the aroma is slightly dipaish, but at a smaller distance than that its just plain alcoholic burn. Flavour is extremely sweet and extremely bitter. Alcoholic with stupid, stupid, stupid morbid fascination.. Fuck...fuck... fucking abomination.

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 (1512) - 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
