This wasn’t my pick, but of course i wanted to sample it. Typical malt liquor, highly alcoholic, sweet and lacking bitterness.

Eh ... not as bad as I expected from the reviews below. Basically tastes like an American macro on steroids. Clear gold in color, small white head; slightly sour malt aroma ... sweet malt, corn and alcohol taste-wise; a touch of hop bitterness on the end ... seems like a mere afterthought, though. Meh.

Bottle...although I don’t think draught would’ve helped matters much. Poured out a very pale yellow-gold...minimal head. Skunk-malts dominate the aroma....and they got skunkier as it warmed in the glass. The flavor was dominated by sweet malts, some bitterness, but I fear it was due to something other than hops. You can sense the alcohol...there was nothing else there to mask that. Yep...EuroColt45. Blah.

Bottle poured a golden bodied beer with a lasting, frothy, white head. Lightly malted, stagnant aroma that was tinny and medicinal. Brandy aromas while warming. Non-descript sour, stale flavor. Left me with a confused/annoyed look on my face.

How ironic... I gave it an overall 9.

Togda-to ia zhe pil i napil eto pivo, i dumal chto eto bylo takoe kliovoe. Akh, chto ia ne znal. . . This beer is strong, that’s about it. Tastes like it was strained through a newspaper.

UPDATED: JUN 21, 2008 Smells like corn and sweet rubbing alcohol. Pale yellow with short lasting head. Tastes like creamed corn, corn sugar, and maybe a little hop bitterness. There is some slight burning due to the 8% ABV in the swallow. Not offensive like most US malt liquors, but not the most pleasant strong lager either. As with other MLs, it’s not well balanced.

Dorqui (2127) - Brescia, ITALY - MAR 28, 2005
Light and little compact foam; evanescent. Clear and limpid color, not particularly bubbly. Medium and alcoholic scent; sugar and malt notes. Determined and sweetish taste; decidedly alcoholic. Overbalance but not to despise.

Smells like champagne, with pears! Initial taste is devoid,like a bad beer, but then the flavoring kicks in. The alcohol gives it a faint wine/barleywine taste. Overall, though, it can’t escape being a malt liqour...high alcohol with little complexity.

In the 16.9 oz bottle. Surprisingly, I liked this beer. Standard yellow in color with a fizzy white head that is poofy only a short time. At first, the aroma seemed slightly skunked, but this aroma gives way to a malty perfume-like aroma. Flavor is a strong alcoholic maltiness, but it has a tempered sweetness and a suggestion of some hop balance. Kak dela tovarich?
