Founders most complex, most innovative, most feared and yet most revered ale produced. Massive in complexity the huge malt character balances the insane amount of alphas used to create this monster. More IBUs than any brewery has documented, more than you would believe and dry-hopped for twenty-six days straight with a combination of 10 hop varieties. Dangerously drinkable and deliciously evil. We dare you to dance with the Devil. 112 IBUs

andrepintado (3259) - Lisbon, PORTUGAL - DEC 29, 2016
Bottle from beautiful beers I think. Clear red to copper color. Thin persistent beige head. Taste is medium sweet, medium bitter. Aroma and flavour is orange, hops, resin, pine, mango, meat, spices, pepper. A bit hardcore, but still, cool stuff.

jjsint (2879) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - DEC 27, 2016
Bottle from Total Wine & More, St. Petersburg. Amber, clear, with a little bit of carbonation. Smell is... fuck me. Caramel, toast, massive resin. And booze, booze, booze. Taste is much more balanced, less boozy. Theres the hop bitterness of course but its overlaid by a thick malty sweetness. The alcohol hits again in the finish, resplendent with bitter hop oils. Cherry and pine in the aftertaste. This is intense and frightening. Im ignoring the inevitable balance issues and giving this a full on yes.

FatPhil (15795) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 26, 2016
355ml bottle (Alko Arkadia, Helsinki)
Wooof! Thats a hot aroma. Big bitter hop component, pine needles super concentrated. Sweet slick palate, but resinily bitter hops too. Tons of sweet caramel, toffee, in the taste, a ton of resins. Finish leaves me with alcoholic vapours, and monstrously bold bittering hops. Not actually bad, but not particularly drinkable either. Id rather be brainfucked by a 9% lithuanian lager - one PET bottle will do, than this. However, I can fight my way to the bottom of the bottle. Hot stuff!

Marduk (7474) - Reval, ESTONIA - DEC 26, 2016
330ml bottle (thanks FatPhil). Clear dark amber color. Medium size, dark yellow bubbly head, stays. Sweet, caramel, tropical fruits, grapefruit and citrus in aroma. Sweet, tropical fruits, caramel, spicy in taste. Citrus and sweet tropical fruits in aftertaste. Alcohol is kind of hidden. Hidden behind that caramel and sweetness perhaps? Solid brew.

Shark_Pants (722) - AUSTRALIA - DEC 3, 2016
355ml bottle, bottled 02 May 16. Slighty hazy red amber with small yellowish head. Big tropical fruity hop aromas, caramel, some booze evident. The taste is certainly not subtle - a sledgehammer of grapefruit, pine, pineapple, apricot hoppiness, huge caramel and toasted bread maltiness, heady alcohol, long grassy bitterness. Fairly full bodied, relatively moderate carbonation. A titan of a beer in just about every way, but masterfully balanced. Simply fantastic.

Cerveza servida en Olut (Sabadell) en botella, muy sabrosa y presente, aunque, personalmente, le sobra graduacin.

Final de mdia/longa persistncia tem um misto de amargor lupulado com dulor bem equilibrado, lembra a caramelo torrado mais com toque frutado de morango, deliciosa!

CObiased (491) - Bayfield, Colorado, USA - NOV 26, 2016
12oz bottle - pours a slightly murky amber orangey color with a med off white head. Massive aroma of fruit (mango, peach, melon, pineapple and grapefruit) and sweet caramel. Flavors of intense malt and gigantic hops meld to make this monster. A little boozy with a long bittersweet aftertaste. Whoa

blueshockey24 (607) - Colorado, USA - NOV 19, 2016
Bottle. Pours reddish amber with tan head. Aroma is sweet and malty. Taste is sweet malty hops with a hoppy piney finish. Pretty good but a little to much malt for my personal preference.
