Bottle @ UDRM, Oirschot. Hopflowers and peach in the glorious aroma. Grapefruit. Pineapple, peach, loads and loads of malt, fresh hops. You almost forget the alcohol. Concentrated op hopbitterness, floral and fruity hop flavors, hopoil, tropical fruit. Very intense fluid, but it is impossible to finish the bottle.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled. Orange/amber coloured. No head to talk about. Sweetness, spice, alcohol, herbs and flowers in the aroma. Flavour dominated by alcohol, herbs, cloying sweetness and some liqourice. Medium to full bodied. Heavily burning alcohol totally domintates the end. Not my thing. Thx. yespr for sharing.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Thanks yespr. Clear reddish amber with no head. Sweet aroma with alcohol, toasted malt, dried druits and hoppy notes. Extremely sweet flavour with ripe fruits, caramel, loads of hops, pine and plenty of alcohol. Finished bitter and sweet. Boozy stuff. I liked the Penguin being dry but this one was way to sweet I’m afraid.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sample from fløska, huge thanks to yespr for this! Clear deep golden amber colour. No head at all. Very sweet toasty caramel alcoholic hoppy strong aroma. Quite oily well filling mouthfeel. Quite sweet bombastic hoppy alcoholic caramel flavour, woooooo! The alcohol is indeed noticeable but not near the 41%.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nip at Brew Dog Camden - 21/12/12.
Dark amber no head, still as.
Nose carries more flavours than I expected having rated TNP previously which was booze forward in terms of aroma. I picked up light pine, tropical fruit notes, booze still dominates and is pretty intense so much as to make the nose tingle a little, a bit like hot mustard!
Taste comprises dark orange rind, caramelised sugar, a decent hop presence, pine, booze - lots of it!
Full full full body, cloying and rich.
Overall a decent sipper, more flavours broke through the alcohol than I’d expected.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
courtesy of Laurent Mousson - clear amber colour without any foam; aroma of cognac, oranges and hop resin with a very apparent burning alcohol presence; no carbonation here and absolutely incredibly bitter; very long hoppy notes and insanely bitter finish, salty with notes of peated whisky and oranges - "hop-scene" and pretty incredible stuff; a unique experience - the 16 yo Isle of Jura we had just after tasted pretty watery in comparison
