BrewDog Tactical Nuclear Penguin
Good (2)

No Penguins  were harmed in the making of this beer; some humans did get very, very cold though. It was worth it.

The Antarctic name, inducing schizophrenia, of this Ÿber-imperial stout originates from the amount of time it spent exposed to extreme cold. This beer was initially double barrel aged for 14 months; maturing in the deep, rich oak of Scottish whisky casks. After this epic maturation the beer was then frozen, then frozen again, then frozen again.

BrewDog Warning


This is an extremely strong beer, it should be enjoyed in small servings and with an air of aristocratic nonchalance. In exactly the same manner that you would enjoy a fine whisky, a Frank Zappa album or a visit from a friendly yet anxious ghost.

Holy moly that is one unbelievably, powerful flavour. its like getting punched in the mouth. It wakes you right up. Its not for the faint of heart, and you better be absolutely certain your ready.

Intense. I was not expecting the flavors that protruded out of that glass bottle. The smell was a mix of thick syrup and ash. The first taste was a strong burnt molasses flavor that kind of threw me off, but immediately after was a sweet mix of strong fruit flavor reminiscent of a port. There were a lot of different flavors that I could not place but, wow, I have never tasted anything quite like this. I really hope this is included in a future tasting to get some different perspectives on the flavors.
