Say hello to Ghost Deer. A defiant and irreverent, devil may care, supersonic bitch of a beer. Ghost Deer is a 28% fermented beer, the strongest ever fermented beer which is only ever served from a single handcrafted and authentic deer’s head.

The beer itself is a robust 28% blonde ale. After fermentation it is aged for 6 months in some amazing whisky, bourbon, rum and sherry barrels. There is only one Ghost Deer head and this beer will only ever be available on draft, served in a stemmed glass, direct from the mouth of the deer himself.

Miniature bottle [big thanks to kermis!] shared @ weekly tasting. Clear amber-ish color, no head. Aroma is alcoholic, but it has some caramel as well. A bit like a cider actually. Taste malts, alcohol, liquor, nuts, whisky, bitter. Warming alcohol burn in the finish. Quite pleasant overall.

Botella de 6 cl. En casa una noche de agosto de 2013 en Llamas. Esto ya es otra historia, entra en el mundo de los licores..., para mi no ya que a pesar de sus 28 vol. conserva sabores maltosos en el fondo que no tiene ningún licor de esos chungos. Es pues la primera vez que tomo una cerveza que supera a muchos licores de esos del montón que pululan por ahí (whisky, bourbon ... no por supuesto). De color cobrizo sin espuma alguna tiene un cuerpo fuerte y muy alcoholico, como no, Aroma muy intenso a maderas envejecidas y toques dulces de caramelo. Sabor muy potente pero contenido por los toques de madera; primero dulces de Bourbon mezclados con el Jerez y finalmente algo seco y salado del Whisky. Alucinante alucinante cerveza, imprescindible repetir unas cuantas veces o las que el precio de coste te permita claro. Ahí va texto integro de la etiqueta: If you are lucky enough to get your hands on Ghost Deer then be careful. This Schizophrenic delusional screw up of a drink is best enjoyed with vigilance and a dose of vagrant optimism. At 28% Ghost Deer is the wolds strongest fermented beer. A beer that is an audacious blend of eccentricity, artistry and rebellion. After fermentation this beer has been aged for 12 months in some amazing whisky, bourbon, run and sherry barrels """Si tienes la suerte de conseguir sus manos en Ghost Deer entonces tenga cuidado. Este esquizofrénico delirante tornillo de una bebida se disfruta mejor con una vigilancia y una dosis de optimismo vagabundo. En 28% Ghost Deer es la más fuerte de la cerveza fermentada del s wold. Una cerveza que es una mezcla audaz de la excentricidad, el arte y la rebelión. Después de la fermentación de esta cerveza ha sido envejecido durante 12 meses en un poco de whisky increíble, bourbon, correr y barriles de jerez""""

Bottled 6cl @Beer Hunters
Clear deep amber color, no head. Vanilla, fresh wood, caramel and alcohol in the nose. Medium-bodied. Lots of vanilla - very sweet - dessert wine. Lots of sugar, some burning alcohol. Better than expected!

Plovmand (6501) - Helsinge, DENMARK - NOV 15, 2013
Very small bottle at Cecil Late Fall Monster tasting. Pours clear deep golden. Aroma is very alcoholic, ripe fruit and is port like. The flavor is heavy alcohol and sweet ripe fruit. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Prokroustis (689) - Thessaloniki, GREECE - OCT 31, 2013
Clear, dark red colour, no head at all. Incredible, strong and complex aroma with rum, caramel, alcohol, wood, anise, vanilla, a deep fruity character, strong Metaxa notes. Oily, strong alcoholic body. Strong, alcoholic, sweet flavour with anise and caramel, rum and notes of whiskey, wood, honey, a great range of subdued fruity notes. Impressive, interesting, and definitely worth a try.

Bottle into snifter. Transparent light brown colour, no head. Smell is sherry- and alcohol- forward, with some rum too. A swirl brings up some legs. Taste is, again, sherry-forward, quite a rich body with traces of the malty beer that once was, some diacetyl maybe, liquorice, plenty of alcohol sharpness. At 28% this tastes stronger than it is. I find it hard to think of this as a beer. As a spirit it is drinkable but not great.

UPDATED: FEB 22, 2014 29.09.2013, 6cl bottle @ home:
Completely flat. Aroma is sweet and slightly boozy, candy sugar, alcohol, caramel malts, oak, raisins, thinner, dates, bark, dark sugar. Taste is sweet and dry boozy, caramel malts, candy sugar, alcohol, licorice, raisins, oak, grass, dark sugar, burnt caramel, even more alcohol and oak. Very dry, longlasting warming boozyness. Nice enough, and quite interesting. But this is just a brief shadow, or rather a ghost, of for example Utopias.

Sample from bottle. Clear reddish amber on color. Huge whiskey barrel notes from the start, which continiue into more sweeter ones after that. Malty sweetness actually, some sherry barrels as well. Filling, strong and slightly boozy aroma. Strong as hell, some fruityness is there but mostly some liqour boozyness. Too strong for me
