Very strong. Not much flavor but still a decent drink. I should’ve ordered the Shipyard.

Bière qui affiche un grand 13 % alc vol en collerette.... Un peu comme les vaches qui vont à l’abattoir avec leur numéro au cou … Argument marketing bien entendu, on peut comprendre et pardonner … Ce qui est plus grave est l’affirmation sur l’étiquette « bière la plus forte du monde », ce qui est évidemment faux. Il faudra que ces gens se rendent chez Dubuisson ou chez les Struise Brouwers par exemple, mais connaissent-ils seulement la Belgique ? Couleur doré moyen brillant. Clarté nette sur le versage total = bière filtrée. Bulles quasi inexistantes... !!! Mousse blanche qui tombe vite et devient beige en nappant !!! (= caramel de coloration) Arômes de massepain de basse classe (ou premier prix, avec un haut pourcentage de remplissage en denrées diverses!!), alcool tord-boyau de type blanche sans traitement des têtes. Volume sirupeux d’une 1ère bouche inclassable par sa nullité, du genre mêlée pain/sel/épices dans un alcool campagnard du type rhum de trafic. 2ème en mélange bizarre blé/agrumes/amandes noyés dans l’alcool bas de gamme. 3ème avec des accents de limonade et de pop corn !!! (d’ailleurs il y a du maïs dans la composition). Longueur sans intérêt, un méli-mélo tragique. Levure inexistante, bière filtrée. Alcool bas de gamme, noyé dans la masse. Finale : heureusement il n’y a que 25 cl dans la bouteille. Bière donc sans aucun intérêt, et dont la prétention est bien entendu délictuelle.... Affaire à suivre … pardon, classée sans suite !

Bottle, rated from backlog. Dark amber beer with off white head. Aroma of caramel, toffee, dried fruit and some banana. Flavor of toffee, caramel, alcohol and dried fruit. fairly well masked abv, still boozy thou

Bottle. The alcohol coming off this beast really cuts through everything else they were trying to do here. Worth a try but nothing too great.

McTapps (4073) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JUN 5, 2013
So I had some certain hopes before drinking this beer (and before reading the score at the moment when I opened the bottle) because of the brewer - Brasserie Grain d’Orge- and the quite interesting and promising label. But well, the book is always not to be judged by its cover and so is this beer. It has got a deep golden colour, low head and smooth body. Nose of strong alcohol. Taste of warm vodka (warm vodka is so disgusting, isnt it??), mild hops, barley, straw and leaves. Finish of cough syrup. Just disgusting and just good because of the strong alcohol that blows you away.

MichaelAwesome (4070) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JUN 5, 2013
Tough one. Loads of sourness which ends a bit of an aroma that could be like thrown up stuff. Alcohol domintaes from first to starts. If cold drunken maybe drinkable but otherwise this one is a huge oponnent. Would not take a second one.

Rulymel (136) - SPAIN - JUN 3, 2013
Golden crystal colour with a short thin head. Aroma: first you can feel a caramel aroma little bit artificial, followed by cereal and then, alcohol invades everything. Taste is sweet, with some nuts reminders, but the alcohol appears with not balance drowning all notes. Impactant name al ABV, but very poor beer.

Shaney (2428) - Köln / Cologne, GERMANY - APR 29, 2013
Mittleres Bernstein, kaum Schaum. Ein strohiges Malzaroma ist vernehmbar. Im Geschmack auch malzig-süß, bevor der Alk. den Gaumen betäubt und alle anderen Geschmacksnuancen erschlägt. Schlecht!

MrBeerFanatic (864) - Friona, Texas, USA - APR 28, 2013
Pours a medium carbed light amber with a boozy head. Aromas of caramel, toffee, slight hint of banana, little fig, and no alcohol. Flavors of toffee, caramel, and light alcohol coming through flavors and nose. Light to medium sweet and leaves a light grain/alcohol aftertaste. Alcohol dominates many of the malt flavors which takes away from the enjoyment.
