3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Golden in color,small head that faded quite fast,the aroma was malty sweet with a definate hint of alcohol,with some mild hints of caramel and mild fruit tones as well.the taste was much the same as the aroma with a big alcohol punch.with the after taste being malty and mildly hopped,and then the alcohol kicks in again giving a very warm feeling going down.IMO this is definately not a brew that i care to have again.I definately know there are better brews out there in this style.Thankfully i have only one to try thanks to my Bro-In-Law

An interesting taste, very sweet with a slight vanilla taste and interesting twinge with the yeast. Alcohol is very warming,especially as it warms up. Glad I tried it, but not something that I would drink often.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Amber colored with a small fizzy white head. Smells like wet dog. Sweet alcohol taste. Has a smokey or marinated taste. Definitly a sipper.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottled. Ginger-amber colour, rising fine gas but not sustaining a head. Sweet malt aroma drowned out by ethanol. You’ve got to try to pick the flavours between the sweet and the burn. Course burnt palate with a long sweet tail. The moral is, if your going to be this big, be subtle about it...this isn't.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Smelled like pumpkins with alcohol. Not much head. Copper color. A little carbonation. Split with my girlfriend, neither of us cared very much for it. As other breweries have shown, just because a brew is high abv, doesn't mean has to taste terrible.

First I confused this beer with Lucifer, but evil is evil and this one is no exception. Offensive alcohol taste, sweet low quality malt.

This was absolutely brutal. I can say that it was hard as hell to split and 8 or 11 ounce or whatever size it was. I get pleasure from drinking forties when compared to this. All malt, and all alcohol. I'd rather eat a bowl of cherios soaked in vodka.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
When you walk into a beer store and look for something new and see beer with a label that say 15% ABV on the foil surrounding the cap you just have to try it. It poured with a gold body and an off white heat theat is completely diminished. A sweet caramel maltiness in the aroma with alcohol. A flavor of sweet malt and a hint of caramel that is taken over by alcohol. Very warming. Not well balanced. How can you have a nicely balanced beer with 15% alcohol??

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
UPDATED: JUL 12, 2009 May, 2008 Nice colour. Smells and tastes like a strong lager. Carlsberg Special Brew with a fancy name. Well, a bit nicer perhaps, but still fairly one dimensional. [1.8]
July 2009 250ml bottle, brought back from the Pyrenees by Bridget. Tastes like a fiery and crude Strong Lager. Some perfume in the malt. Bock, malt liquor, strong lager or strong blonde ale - the end result is a strong pale beer with too much alcohol for my taste, but lovers of strong beers will give it higher marks. Really crude stuff - the Carlsberg Special Brew is tastier. [1.4]

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Aroma is verry ho-hum. Smells of slight malty sweetness. Color is a nice shining golden-copper, with a tad bit og head. The alcohol is too overpowering in my opinion. Beer is sweet tasting regardless, hints of orange in it. Not enough malt or hops to give this beer anymore of a profile.
