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.

small measure at brewdog Newcastle. Clear amber with legs similar to Courvoisier or similar. Aroma of alcohol and minimal hops if any. Taste is similar with a very warm liqueur taste and alcohol rather than that of beer. A novelty.

Very sweet and concentrated. Boozy in a good way, like a good avec or something like that.

had a shot at a local bar. what could I expect from this experiment. I was surprised to see carbonation at this strong beer?? aroma of caramel. dark fruits, overwelming alcohol smell. citrus, caramel, sugar malt. burns a lot. and a verry dry aftertaste. why should you even call this beer.... anyway, this is far from drinkable. nice to try it for one time.

had when it was the strongest beer out there - split up a bottle 4 ways. Glad we did. A nice experience but harder to drink than say, a Utopias which is better crafted and a better sipper. This is slightly citrusy booze, resemblimg whiskey more than "Imperial IPA". Cool, but not worth the price.

UPDATED: APR 17, 2016 Klarowne, bez piany, bursztynowe. Aromat przywodzi na mysl najlepsze angielskie BW w typie K31 z wyraźniejszym alkoholem. Praktycznie bez gazu. Mocno alkoholowe a zarazem chmielowe w smaku, karmelowe, z wyrazna goryczka na finiszu.

Przeklejka wyjazdowa, probka (dzieki, Swaroga!): Sink The Bismarck! BrewDog Aromat klasa - owocowo przyprawowy, jak intensywne BW. Smak... Alko-chmielowy. Ma chmielowa goryczke. Wynalazek, warto sprobowac poznawczo
