Watt Dickie is a spirit born out of our stone-faced misadventures in high ABV brewing. The bastard lovechild of the technique we developed to produce idiosyncratic masterpieces such as Tactical Nuclear Penguin, Sink the Bismarck and the infamous End of History – a beer which reached 55% ABV.

This is an insanely amplified IPA masquerading as a spirit. A faux spirit, a dead spirit, a new spirit. Born as an India Pale Ale, Watt Dickie then undergoes patent pending (and consequentely for now secret) freezing alchemy which transforms the beer into a high octane roller coaster of flavour, craftsmanship, originality and audacity.

The process condenses & amplifies the flavour, body and mouth-feel resulting in full bodied malty, hoppy rock ‘n roll opulence which is unlike anything you (or anyone else) has ever tasted before. Watt Dickie is uncarbonated and designed to be drunk and enjoyed as a spirit: have it neat, have it on the rocks or even make a cocktail with it.

Pours deep brown with no head. Smells nose is soy sauce. Aromas are soy sauce, viandox, alcohol. Flat beer, full body. Very bitter, very astringent. Terrible. Not a beer at all. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Backlog, ocena przepisana z untappd, w ramach uzupełniania profilu na ratebeer. Fatalne. Śliwki i spirytus. Jedno z najgorszych piwnych doświadczeń ever.

An ale you got to try at least once, in my case strictly once! totally mental strength with powerful alcohol taste but found it undrinkable really. As scary as the cool little bottle.

Shared a 60ml bottle with my spouse. Aged about two years. Tasted it warm with no ice. Pours dark brown and still. Smell is quite mild and pleasant, cough medicine comes to mind in a good way. Taste is suprisingly strong, condenced barley wine with licorice on top. Alcohol burns in the end. It was a bit too intense for my woman, but I enjoyed it. I could get these as a shot from time to time.

Poured from a 60ml bottle. Dark brown clear liquid with no head. Very good aroma, it does not smell very alcoholic at all. Good first sip with a burst of flavor that dissipates rather quickly. It has the alcoholic after bite, but it slowly disappears as well. Since the alcohol bite is so strong, there is nothing left on the palate to enjoy the lasting taste. However I am quite enjoying the tingling caused by the alcohol. On second sip I noticed that the beer is quite viscous, and reminds me of barley wines.

Poured from 60mL bottle shared with Dslam [aged ~2 years]. Amber brown, no head, no carbonation. Aroma of caramel malt and dark stone fruit, doesn’t smell much more alcohol-y than your average barley wine. Holds much of the same flavours on taste, but dissipates quite quickly from the alcohol. Alcohol isn’t overpowering, but still provides a mild burn, not unpleasant like a cheap spirit. Originally thought it would be a one-off novelty that would just be for the experience, but it’s actually not bad. Add some water back in and it would be like a barley wine.

Poison bottle. Straight from the bottle. Malty, sweet, fruity, oily hops in aroma. Very malty and sweeet and hoppy in taste. Dry mouthfeel. Harsh but full of flavors. Didn’t expect that. Beer is not completely killed and I like it. Sipper.

60ml bottle (Alus Celle, Riga)

Rather pleasant sweetish malty base, but quite a pleasant hop liqueuer on top of that. Same goes for the taste. Does have a big alcohol booze burn if you drink it at above zero temperatures I’m sure (I can breathe fire from it), but I’m drinking this at -10C, and it slips down rather easily as a sipper, as a hop liqueuer. Bitterness is nettley and spicy, but fits perfectly with whatever it is. I was expecting more breadiness, from what others had said. No mind, I liked it as the hop liqueuer.
