worldbeertaste (1637) - AUSTRIA - NOV 5, 2013
Clear golden yellow/orange with a disappearing frothy, lacy, white head. Smells of toasted malt, alcohol, caramel and sugar. Some Fruit. Medium oily body. Tastes of stale alcohol with yeast on a malt base that tries to cover it all with sweetness but fails. Finishes with a stale warming alcohol. I found it hard to drink.

UPDATED: OCT 27, 2013 Pours with no head or lacing. Skunky aroma. Almost painful to have in your mouth. Flavor is toffee.

Westchesterco (951) - mclean, Virginia, USA - OCT 15, 2013
Poured from a bottle it is a caramel color with a rim head. The aroma is of molasses the taste is very odd flavor that tingled the palate and resonates of some flavors that were hard to discern

kidobutai (366) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - AUG 31, 2013
UPDATED: SEP 1, 2013 Strongest store-bought beer I?ve tried. Reminded me of a homemade fruit mash my neighbor brewed earlier this summer that messed me up! So perhaps I still had a lingering aftertaste (and hangover) from that, but this didn?t taste enough like beer for me. I enjoyed the initial taste, but it was almost like a medicine going down the throat. Drank it anyway. ..guess I don?t learn.
