3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at a tasting 15th of January 2011. Surprise entry at the tasting. Aroma smacks you in the face with a grassy hop and alcohol. Taste is very strong on the hops, and even stronger on the alcohol burn, with a spiciness that matches the bitterness. More of an experience than a good beer, definately a novelty, although in my opinion it is MUCH better and more drinkable than the penguin.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from the brewery, split with mcberko. Pours a clear mahogany with no head. Aroma and flavour of syrup, alcohol, and quite spicy. Initial flavour is sweet, the the alcohol kicks in sharply. Easier to appreciate the alcohol flavour after a few sips. Leaves a lovely warming spirit-like sensation in your chest. Glad i was fortunate to try it.

2.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle, from Brew Dog’s grim Manchester pub. From notes. Nose cream, fudge, toffee, caramel, spices, slight brandy. Taste, caramel, hops brown sugar. Alcohol burn high.
Overall, the nose is spectacular, the taste less so. Interesting to try

Ok fine it is novel. Tasted about 2 oz o f it. The aroma is actually not too bad, a bit of malt vinegar I would say but certainly no hops or pine. Flavor is just alcohol. Tastes like some badly done grain alcohol with no nuance. One and done.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle shared with fellow Hungarian beerfans. Poured amber color with no head. Sweet aroma, honey, citrus, coriander, caramel and strong hops. Medium dense body with some carbonation. Dry, hoppy aftertaste. Alcohol is there, but much smoother than with distilled drinks. Strong aroma matches the strong ABV, so in that sense I think it’s balanced. Unique, enjoyable, for special events for sure.

Pours clear copper like whisky.
Aroma very toffee like aroma with ethyl alcohol.
Taste is a syrupy toffee, some burning alcohol. Nicer than anticipated

Copper orange beer with no head, some bubbles. Leaves angels tears on the glass. Deep caramel, syrup and ripe orange fruits on the nose. Mouth feel is thick and soft and full. Very nice syrup and caramel taste combined with a deep bitter finnish. Ripe sweet orange fruits again in the flavors. As a whisky drinker and an IPA lover I am just so excited about this drink! This is a truly pleasant surprise for me. I love it! It’s just so unique and exciting.
