Pours a clear bronze with no head. Aroma is packed with mango and tropical fruits. Tropical fruits are picked up on the taste rather quickly bt soon the alcohol heat/burn overwhelms everything. Great as a spirit and as an example of brewing achievement but apart from aroma it does not possess much beer qualities Lilja (3140) - Malmö, SWEDEN - NOV 20, 2015
Några cl provade på Beer-ditch. Väldigt höga förväntningar. Smakar först bara sprit med en liten touch av salubrin och kungen av Danmark/bröstkarameller. Men när spritsmaken lagt sig finns där en söt, kryddig, karamellig karaktär med toner av toffe som funkar. Eftersmak är värmande, torr, kärv och ganska besk. Gott att äntligen fått prova.

Surprisingly it has aromas of hops with notes of pomelo and orange peel, mango. Lots of vanilla, cinnamon and resin. Very deep. I was expecting more alcohol. Still it’s 41% so ...there is enough but the thickness and huge hop burn makes you remember it isn’t a typical high abv distillate. It’s completely out of this world. phfyysik (1252) - Tartu, ESTONIA - APR 10, 2016
Pours golden with no head. Aroma is alcohol, fruits, some caramel, sweetness, hardwood. Taste is strong, hops, a lot of different fruits, lilac. Not very sticky and after taste does not last long. Interesting. Fullpintofbeer (365) - Bristol, Somerset, ENGLAND - MAY 2, 2016
No head, no lacing, copper colour, aroma of whiskey with a little addition of hops, strong alcohol taste, flat. Not everyday you can try a 41% of alcohol beer, but it’s worth it.

Thick caramel color with no foam at all and thick viscous marks in the glass. Sweet, hoppy, caramel, thick alcohol nose. This smells like hop liqueur. Thick raisin sweet alcoholic taste with a light sting. Too much hops and alcohol and diabetes. Bitter tart aftertaste. This beer is an interesting experiment, but bring a lot of friends if you open a bottle, you don’t need a lot of this beer. AtronSeige (1519) - 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.

33 cL bottle. Pours cloudy orange with a fully gone head. Aroma is dense grapefruity and peachy, sugarish/dextrose malt sweetness. Alcohol dense, overly solid hoppy and sugarish dense dextrose. Burning alcohol and dark hops flavoured finish. Marko (5640) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - APR 13, 2010
Tremendous, enormous thanks to TBone who shared this one with us! Poured a red-gold body. Appley aroma hops in the nose, some sweet maltiness too but mainly alcohol. Aromatic hopiness mixing with saltiness in the taste, definitively quite malty too, maybe some notes of caramel. The alcohol is warming. You can definitely feel that this is huge, maybe not this huge but what can I compare it to? Still, I don’t care much for beers with some kind of alcohol presence, and this one fits the bill unfortunately. Still, huge respect and again huge thanks to Timo! jesperhammer (4727) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 8, 2010
Wouw, this is alchohol. Bitter, and not just from the hops, but also from the alcohol.
This is not beer. The TNP was (not being scientific here).
I liked the TNP a lot, and I had hoped for something fantastic since I am an IPA guy. But dissappointed. Too sweet, too strong.
BUT brewdog - I am with you all the way:)
