COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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 alpha’s used to create this monster. More IBU’s 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

Ampolla al olut. Quina bomba! Es doble alcohol i doble llupul, quina exageració.

andrepintado (3323) - 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.

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. There’s the hop bitterness of course but it’s 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. I’m ignoring the inevitable balance issues and giving this a full on yes.

FatPhil (15964) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 26, 2016
355ml bottle (Alko Arkadia, Helsinki)
Wooof! That’s 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. I’d 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 (7588) - 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.

Dermi (1182) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 13, 2016
12 fl. oz, bottled. Pours cloudy red with a minimal white head. Aroma: Hops, grains, malt. Taste: Medium+ sweet. some notable bitterness. Palate: Medium body, oily feel. Average carbonation. Not bad.

Shark_Pants (736) - 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 graduación.

4.4
Tognetta (951) - São Paulo, BRAZIL - NOV 27, 2016
UPDATED: NOV 27, 2016 Âmbar avermelhada de pouquíssima turbidez quase translúcida, espuma avermelhada de otima formação e persistência. Aroma adocicado, malte, morangos, xarope, álcool mais perceptível com o tempo de copo. Paladar de dulçor intenso e médio amargor. Corpo licoroso, média carbonatação. Final de média/longa persistência tem um misto de amargor lupulado com dulçor bem equilibrado, lembra a caramelo torrado mais com toque frutado de morango, deliciosa!

CObiased (496) - 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
