1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
330 ml bottle. L11.1.06. BB 11/09/13. From bierzwerg.de.
Here it goes. I expect this to be quite repulsive and horrible experience. Letís see. Iíd love to be wrong. Colour is clear reddish golden with tiny white head. Malt, almond and booze in aroma. Flavour is incredibly unpleasant. Booze with capital B. "...an intense alcohol flavour..." You bet! Undrinkable. Down to drain. And what the hell? E224 E330? Why on earth? This is bad, very bad!

Clear amber pour, not much head. Aroma of caramel, toasted nuts, and something a little too medicinal - like a cough syrup. Really sweet, and with that same cough syrup quality to it. Aftertaste is slightly bitter, bordering on metallic. Not a fan.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nice orange color with 1 finger yellow head. It smells like figs, orange, caramel and may be a bit vanilla. Taste is not bad but quite sweet and also you can feel the alcohol content, also I feel banana in there. To be honest I was expecting to be worse itís actually not bad at all.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
0.25l bottle. This is a clear dark golden one, lots of floaters and particles swirling around, and it has a small heavy lacing just off-white head. On the aroma this is not extreme in any way. No hints of alcohol even if this is a 13% beer. I get some light flour tones, some sweet corn and not really much more. No off-aromas. In the taste you can sense the high alcohol percent. Itís quite thick and oily on the mouthfeel and itís average carbonated. A bit sweet perhaps? No clear off-flavors here either. Itís strong and boozy indeed, but thatís just what I was expecting. You get what you buy in this one. A strong alcohol infused lager, but in a not-so bad way. 15.09.2012

Bottle, thankfully a small one. This verges on undrinkable with loads of medicine in the aroma; sugar syrup, toilet cleaner, asbestos, fruit syrup with no fruit in it. Pretty horrid

Olha, o que dizem sobre n„o julgar um livro pela capa, serve pra essa cerveja.
Fiquei impressionado com o paladar que ela me trouxe, completa, encorpada, com aroma espetacular, essa cerveja francesa e mesmo uma otima strong.
Tenho certeza que cai muito bem com comidas mais temperadas.
Acho que com queijo azul e otima.
FantŠstica, eu recomendo.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear amber orange with a modest head and decent lace. Caramel and bread malt on the nose, a touch of pepper and spices, a whiff of molasses. Sweetness from the malt comes through almost cloyingly, with a prominent alcohol burn. Pretty disappointed in this one.

Alcohol naturally comes through in the taste. Decent flavor hides under the alcohol burn, but the 13% ABV is the most evident thing here. Still drinkable though....

Poured from bottle into glass amber color with white head. Aroma of sugar and bread. Taste of sweet honey. Nice finish.
