Brewdog now brews the worlds two most alcoholic beers. Tactical Nuclear Penguin ranking in at 32% and as if that wasn’t enough, now there is Sink the Bismarck reigning at 41%.

Surprisingly, the beer is ultra hoppy, given the higher the abv of a beer the more hop oils it can absorb. Right along side the hops was a surprising malt flavor, don’t be mistaken though, the alcohol was very forward and very, very hot. Initially the hop bitterness nails the tongue, followed by a slight malt backbone then, like a blow torch to your tongue, the alcohol heat blasts your palate. Bismark is a fantastic “after dinner” sipping beer. Grab a cigar and a seat in your favorite lounging chair, settle in and enjoy the world’s strongest beer.

If your ever lucky enough to have the opportunity to get a taste, go for it. What a remarkable achievement for beer. If you’d like, visit the BrewDog site and buy yourself one direct.

Pairing suggestions: robust cigar
