Somewhat daringly named Satan Satan Satan, this subverts the classic German Bock (which translates to goat) by adding saltpetre, sulphur and carbon, three of the key ingredients in gunpowder. The aroma is deeply earthy and malty, with fresh ashes and a streak of flinty smokiness. Malt richness hits first on the tongue, accompanied by a flash of mineral saltiness that rapidly drops away, leaving a charry bitterness that lingers into the finish. A truly elemental beer.
