2 oz. sample from bottle. Rating #2200! $20 @ Palmer Place. They charged this much for a taste of Utopias, so its a value. Big sweet smell of sherry and brandy. No foam, just a dark ruby beer that bounces off a lot of room lights. Smell now has notes of Baileys Irish Cream. First tiny sip is a bottomless pit of brown malt. Full of alcohol fumes, but somehow not hot. Just the first two sips have left the inside of my mouth with a coating of malt and resin. Heck, its varnish and a clear coat on top, too. Even less than an ounce worth is quite intoxicating. No one who doesnt know the story of this drink would think its a beer. Yet its nothing less than, say, a Krampus distilled and reduced to its barest essence. No carbonation on my tongue. Definitely more potent than an 80 proof brandy. Alcoholic to the end.

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!

Taster @ Brewdog, helsinki. Intense dried plums and dark fruit, strong booze, some stingy acetone, spices. Unsurprisingly feels like a schnaps. Goes down easily though, warming and smooth. Sticky and oily, though. spectacular in all ways. and i love the name

9th Nov 2016: 375ml bottle between four at the monthly Shrewsbury beer exchange group meeting in Chez Sophie. Cheers Simon for trying to kill us all with this offering. Strong stuff isnt it! Actually I quite liked it. Thick, sticky and sweet: what is there not to like?
