4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle at the free sink the bismark tasting at the rake. Im going to rate this fully rather than just alround experiance. Aroma is incredible, massive hops, very piney, citrus, lychee and tangerine, some underlying toffee malt, but its probably the hoppiest thing iv ever smelt. Lightly hazy apperance. Taste is huge, intencly bitter, piney, citrusy, toffee/caramel malt, big peppery hop/alcohol hit. The finish i timed at over 10 mins, i started drinking something else so couldnt say how long, but seriously the longest finish iv ever experianced, dry, massively bitter and fresh hop bite. Perfect mouthfeel for the type of drink. Overall its an absolutly blasting drink, the best drinking experiance iv had in about a year. High 5, chin chin!

Share thanks to petersluhale. Sweet, huge booze, tons of caramel, some dark fruit. Brown color. Huge booze flavor, straight alcohol, and then a face full of caramelized molasses. Warming alcohol (obviously). Lingering heat.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
375 ml bottle sample thanks to phaleslu. Pours a murky amber brown color with a few scant bubbles that coats the glass and lasts for seemingly hours. The aroma exploded from the glass even though there was no carbonation. Big, boozy, caramel, toffee, molasses, dark fruit, and wood. The flavor is very similar; big caramel, molasses, dark fruit and intense ethanol booze, not something I would have wanted to pursue, but I am happy that I was able to try this finally.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sample shared by alexsdad06. Poured hazy dark copper color with a small frothy off-white head that was mostly lasting with fair lacing. Moderate to heavy earthy hop aroma. Medium to full body with slick texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy smooth bittersweet flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration.This was a solid beer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sample shared by alexsdad06 (through phaleslu) . Pour cola brown no head or carbonation. Nose definitely alcohol, toffee and caramel malt, some sweet but overpower by alcohol. Taste, well here it goes, starts off promising as a liquor, burnt caramel, molasses, some almost candied fruit. Then here comes the alcohol. Mid palate to the end super strong ethanol. Feel the heat. Coating mouth feel. Iíll give it a couple extra tenths for the rarity.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Darkred clear, no head. Strong alcohol with a hint of raisins in the aroma. Cough-drop, liqruish and hops in the aftertaste. Can not recommend more than one glass of this.

Bottle at home. Pours amber, quite hoppy, bitter and fruity, surprisingly hides the alcohol more than TNP.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
2 year old bottle to shot glass
Smells like an IPA syrup, with some booze, chili, and oregano. This doesnít smell as good as it did 2 years ago, but itís still pretty rocking. Colour is an opaque reddish brown with no head. Lots of pepper, chili, booze, oil, and ending with a slam of hoppy bitterness.
