3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This flat "beer" pours a clear, golden and incredibly viscous body with no head. The aroma is intense and very hoppy, with heavy notes of tropical fruits and caramel. The flavour is burning alcoholic, ridiculously hoppy and immensely malty: this is pure IPA concentrate! Also some hints of herbs. The taste is harsh bitter and heavy sweet, and the boozy aftertaste lasts until the next morning. The body is fuller than full and the texture is thicker than crude oil. This is a crazy, fun and absurd brew, but not exactly pleasant. Compared to e.g. Tactical Nuclear Penguin this is just a novelty.

Przeklejka wyjazdowa, probka (dzieki, Swaroga!): Sink The Bismarck!
Aromat klasa - owocowo przyprawowy, jak intensywne BW. Smak... Alko-chmielowy. Ma chmielowa goryczke. Wynalazek, warto sprobowac poznawczo

UPDATED: APR 17, 2016 Klarowne, bez piany, bursztynowe. Aromat przywodzi na mysl najlepsze angielskie BW w typie K31 z wyraźniejszym alkoholem. Praktycznie bez gazu. Mocno alkoholowe a zarazem chmielowe w smaku, karmelowe, z wyrazna goryczka na finiszu.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours golden with no head. Aroma is alcohol, fruits, some caramel, sweetness, hardwood. Taste is strong, hops, a lot of different fruits, lilac. Not very sticky and after taste does not last long. Interesting.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Interesting beer. Color reminding of an Oloroso sherry, copper red. No head and no lacing. Definitively void of any carbonation... Very salty salmiak taste and plenty of hop bitterness, somewhat surprisingly. OK, have tried this and fun to offer the rest of the 375 ml bottle to guests and friends, but nothing I will sip on on a Friday evening.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours clear copper like whisky.
Aroma very toffee like aroma with ethyl alcohol.
Taste is a syrupy toffee, some burning alcohol. Nicer than anticipated

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Surprisingly it has aromas of hops with notes of pomelo and orange peel, mango. Lots of vanilla, cinnamon and resin. Very deep. I was expecting more alcohol. Still itís 41% so ...there is enough but the thickness and huge hop burn makes you remember it isnít a typical high abv distillate. Itís completely out of this world.
