WASW (50) - - APR 15, 2012
Pungent almost savoury flavour. Deep brown liquid that sticks to the side of the glass. Flavour is almost overwhelming cough-syrupy with little hint of its Paradox origins. Something Im glad I tried once, but it is the only Brewdog Ive had that has felt genuinely gimmicky.

Koelschtrinker (19716) - Kln (Cologne), GERMANY - APR 29, 2017
Torfiger Geruch. Intensiver rauchiger Beginn, in dem die Se nur eine Nebensache darstellt. Stark alkoholisch, langer Nachhall. Gut. 10/11/10/11/0/11

Zlotta (3035) - Hagen / Bonn, GERMANY - APR 29, 2017
Sampled from 0.33 l bottle. Clear, dark brownish amber, no head. Very intense, peaty, slightly sweetish-malty aroma of mainly peat, some caramel and hints of vanilla. Extremely intense, malty and very peaty taste of massive peat, caramel and some vanilla, followed by a long, very peaty and warming-alcoholic finish. Full body, oily mouthfeel, flat. Really intense stuff, not bad actually, quite enjoyable, couldnt drink more than a few sips though.

Hopmaestro (1596) - rebro, SWEDEN - MAR 9, 2017
Backlog: Aroma is sweet and spicey from alcohol. Taste is thick tar, smokey notes, chunks of wood and a burning alcohol sensation. Not my jam.

Un produit atypique. Brune foncée à noire cette bière est une explosion de saveur en bouche. Une bière extra-ordinaire qui tranche les saveurs et les avis. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Sweet vineous aroma like Port wine, dark syrup and fruity. Raisins, liquorice and coffee in the taste. Really interesting and much better than expected.

Piwo z pewnością kultowe, ciekawe, a przede wszystkim, bardzo mocne. 32% to nie wynik tradycyjnego procesu, a wymrażania. Oczywiście nie jest to trunek sesyjny, ale na spotkanie w pięcioosobowym gronie było idealne! Bardzo oleista konsystencja, ciemnobrązowe, bez piany, bez gazu... Aromat ciemnych, suszonych owocw, czekolady. Likierowy. W smaku mocy nie czuć. Czuć za to owoce, owoce w likierze, czekoladę. Całość tworzy bardzo smaczną kompozycję. Ciężko myśleć o Pingwinie jako o piwie, ale to i tak trunek wart uwagi! Ciekawe doznanie!
