2.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle @ CBF, 2010.
Nice clear amber with no head. Malty aroma, sweet, resiny hops, raisins, viniousness, caramel. Mild to low carbonation, super oily fat mouthfeel. Flavour has a shit-load of alcohol, lots of dry fruity hops. Pure spirits. Very unbalanced.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
12oz bottle-thanks jtclockwork for sharing-pours no head and orange color. Aroma is initially resin/lemon, 2nd medium malt-caramel. Then iodine/acetone. Taste is biting hops, then turns to grain alcohol, warming/burning all the way down the gullet. Both aroma and taste start impressively, then goes explosively downhill. Initial 9/3/7/4/15=3.8 then 4/3/4/2/10=2.3

strong malty and hoppy aroma. You would not be able to guess the ABV from aroma, but You would probably guesstimate it in the teens.

4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle shared with jcwattsrugger and decaturstevo. Pours amber. Deceptively nice nose at first inhalation. Hops and grain alcohol. Then the true beast reveals itself. Rubbing alcohol, paint thinner and iodine permeates the nose in follow up whiffs. Hops become more muted. The first sip is also deceptive. Slight burn with hop malt character throughout. Subsequent sips tell a different story. The beer quickly becomes a Jack Daniels cough medicine of sorts, lots of rubbing alcohol and burn with little hops in background.

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%.
