The End of History: The name derives from the famous work of philosopher Francis Fukuyama, this is to beer what democracy is to history. Fukuyama defined history as the evolution of the political system and traced this through the ages until we got the Western Democratic paradigm. For Fukuyama this was the end point of mans political evolution and consequently the end of history. The beer is the last high abv beer we are going to brew, the end point of our research into how far the can push the boundaries of extreme brewing, the end of beer.

kazin (528) - Malm, SWEDEN - JUN 5, 2012
Sampled at rsted lbar tasting of the (then) 6 strongest beers. Aroma and taste was overwhelmingly dominated by alcohol and malt. I prefer to compare it to a finer whisky, where it can actually hold its own. An experience.

SilkTork (5693) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, ENGLAND - JAN 18, 2012
Brewdog event at the Rake, 7th Sept 2010. With thanks to The Cad for double servings. Alcohol aroma. Some plastic. Fairly clean and pure aroma - distilled. Quite fumey. Marzipan. Pasta. Vodka. First sip was alcohol - clean, mostly neutral and fairly drinkable. Theres an awareness of the beer base somewhere in the pure alcohol and spirit heat - some suggestion of caramel. A nettle like finish that is interesting. Impossible to assess or even pin down as a beer. Perhaps best thought of as a beer liquor, than as a beer. A spirit that has some sense of beer as its origin.

Frenger (367) - Derby, Alabama, ENGLAND - OCT 23, 2011
Bottle at sheffield tap. Pours deep amber with no head. All the smell and appearance of a whisky. Caramel aroma mixed with a lot of booze. Really glad I tried this although it was hard to tell it was a beer.

Bottled 2cl sample @Beer Hunters
Stoat. Claimed to be the last bottle in the world sold.
Clear deep amber color, no head. Strong alcohol, overly sweet, ryeish aroma. Full-bodied, liquerish. Different flavor than aroma ... strong alcohol (vodka), juniper/wood, orange peels, lots of malts, licorice. Warming aftertaste. Better than expected but still once in the lifetime experience.

Pours clear nut copper with no head. Nice fruity, malty and dried fruits aroma. Heavy sweet, boozy, bitter flavors with notes of sweet liquorice and a hoppy acidity. Full body. Oily texture. Alcoholic warmth. Thanks to tarjei for inviting me, and thanks to the winner of Mikkeller bars lottery, who kept it sealed until tarjei was in town and then kindly shared. The bottle came with the name of the animal that engulfed it - Susan, which was renamed Susie when arriving in Copenhagen.

Ethereal (2421) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAY 30, 2011
A third of a thimble taster from the stoat at Brewdog event at the Rake, 7th Sept 2010. Bright clear yellow gold appearance - looks like the "yellow oil" that was the desired outcome of every first year organic chemistry practical I did at uni! Grassy, earthy, peppery hoppiness on the nose. In the mouth, theres an insane level of alcoholic heat - it makes your tongue swell. Orange and pine resin are the dominant flavours. Its got great legs - the oily palate ensures it coats your mouth and just keeps giving.

Ratman197 (14372) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - APR 20, 2011
Sample courtesy of Doodler (thanks Scott!), provided by cgarvuiek and brought to the USA by Jason poured a clear gold with no head (still). Aromas of toffee, earthiness, dried fuit, alcohol, white pepper and a hint of vinegar. Palate was light to medium bodied with a dry warming finish., Flavors of toffee, dried fruit, straw, light earthiness and light spice with a smooth dry warming lingering toffee finish. Never thought Id get a chance to try this one, Big thanks to Craig, Jason and Scott!

Adenila (1560) - DENMARK - APR 14, 2011
Sampled at "the strongest beer in the world" tasting session on rsted lbar. Its clear golden and looks very sticky, no head. The aroma hits you with a mix of herbal juniper, loads of hemp and of course nostril ripping alchohol fumes. The flavor reveals a super intence and high amoung of hops, which almost makes the bitterness more noticeable than the alchohol, almost. It is all in all more balanced than i thought because of the bitterness and in the end it was actually a great little sip.
