Brewdog sink the bismarck. 41 %. IPA. det første jeg kunne dufte da jeg åbne flasken var den her maltsødme som mange af de her stærke øl på over 13 % tit har. smagen er super god sød stærk og bitter OwainTurner (425) - Leicester, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 2, 2015

Had this last night at Stone Brewing World Bistro and Gardens in Escondido, CA at their meet the brewer night. Small sample out of the bottle. Intense orange amber with intense earthy hop aroma. Hoppy fruit flavor with subtle sweetness and alcohol. Warming feeling (you can feel it all the way down). Be sure to have some food in your stomach as some of my colleges’ stomachs had trouble with the alcohol. This is an intense hop experience! Not much malt to it, but if you like hops then definitely indulge! yngwie (17038) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 10, 2010
Bottle at Patricks. It’s a clear, dark golden beer, or should i say drink, I have a hard time convincing myself it’s a beer. No head at all, still beautiful to look at. The aroma punches you in the face with its massive amounts of citrusy hops and stinging alcohol. There’s malty elements too, and overall it is lovely even though it is so intense. In the mouth it is full as hell, and very warming. Very high on bitterness, and with a good dash of malty sweetness. Citrus and pine in copius amounts. The finish is bitter and warming, leaving very little room for the malts. A wonderful beer, maybe in a non-beery way, actually it’s the insane levels of hops and alcohol that drives it forward. Thx Brewdog for doing this limits-pushing experiment. 100610 RCL (2030) - Waltham, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 18, 2010
I was actually quite surprised that I liked this as much as I did. Big piney hop aroma reminds me very much of Dogfish Head 120 Min. Flavor has massive hops and is a bit hot but, when compared to spirits, it’s fairly smooth sipping. Put yourself in the "slow sipping spirit" frame of mind when trying this, and it is quite nice.

Whew, don’t try to drink the whole thing. With all the alcohol, it will drink like brandy or whiskey. That being said, it still has some great IPA flavors, just amplified, overemphasizing some of the piney/hoppy nature. Grab about 10 friends, some shot glasses, and add it to the tasting list. thebeermonk (24) - NETHERLANDS - APR 29, 2011
Shared (ofcourse) bottle at Trappistenlokaal ’t Klooster. Liked it better then the T.N.P. Strange how a "beer" this strong can still tast like a beer. Lot’s of hops, but still room for more flavoures... Funny,strange, glad I tried it. haakonm (4) - NORWAY - MAY 25, 2011 does not count

Pours clear amber with no head. Aroma has notes of alcohol, malt, caramel, herbs, grassy and fruity hops. Taste is medium sweet and heavy bitter with an insanely strong and bitter finish. Body is full, texture is sticky, carbonation is flat.
Color is amber with no head. Aroma is burned malts, caramel, alcohol, dark fruits, syrup... Complex and rich aroma. Flavor is anis, alcohol, burned malts, burned sugar, liquorice. Swell!
