    Scotland - 'World's strongest' beer with 32% strength launched

    'World's strongest' beer with 32% strength launched


    James Watt said Tactical Nuclear Penguin would sell for 30


    A controversial Scottish brewery has launched what it described as the world's strongest beer - with a 32% alcohol content.

    Tactical Nuclear Penguin has been unveiled by BrewDog of Fraserburgh.

    BrewDog was previously branded irresponsible for an 18.2% beer called Tokyo, which it then followed with a low alcohol beer called Nanny State.

    Managing director James Watt said a limited supply of Tactical Nuclear Penguin would be sold for 30 each.

    This is an extremely strong beer; it should be enjoyed in small servings and with an air of aristocratic nonchalance
    Tactical Nuclear Penguin label warning


    He said: "This beer is about pushing the boundaries, it is about taking innovation in beer to a whole new level."

    Mr Watt added that a beer such as Tactical Nuclear Penguin should be drunk in "spirit sized measures".

    A warning on the label states: "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."

    However Jack Law, of Alcohol Focus Scotland, described it was a "cynical marketing ploy" and said: "We want to know why a brewer would produce a beer almost as strong as whisky."

    The beer has been launched on the day alcohol was at the top of the political agenda with the unveiling of the Scottish government's Alcohol Bill including proposals for minimum pricing on drink.

    Meanwhile, BrewDog's plans for a new headquarters to produce millions of bottles of beer a year have been approved by Aberdeenshire Council.

    The decision was taken at a full council meeting despite having been recommended for refusal by officers because the site at Potterton, near Aberdeen, is in the green belt.

    It has been distilled by freezing

    Not really a beer by my reckoning

    "But what does it taste like? Well, the comparison with whisky is really quite apt. For one thing, it's dominated by the same intense alcohol bite and aroma. For another, the smoky peatiness of the whisky casks comes through as well. The freezing really has concentrated it, giving it a dense syrupy mouthfeel. But underneath all that one can still make out the flavour of the original Imperial Stout: salty, roasty, earthy, and chocolatey. The aftertaste is surprisingly bitter and smoky. "

    Not beer to my rekoning either,, I made beer at about 6% maybe a tad more and was good, and I thought it was impossible to go above 16% when brewing, so anything over is bound to be a distillate of some sort, and does not sound good to me.
    If you drank like I did in the last of my drinking career , it was just to get as drunk as possible as fast as possible and pass out, so then that shit would be OK.

    I thought this was old news, it was in the pub magazine circular two months ago.

    If Brew Dog are anything to go by with there cask ales on sale it couldn't be too good

    Question
