3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Big thanks to askdrtodd for the share. Pours clear deep copper with thin white to off white head. The aroma is thick sludgy malts backed up by mild yet intense citrus hops and followed by the expected burn to the nose near the end of the draw. The taste is rough with a brief moment of malts rushing headlong into syrupy yet tart hop bitterness and astringency and then getting more and more boozy and rough. It continues to warm deep into the long after taste. Interesting. I doubt I can take much more than an ounce of this without something to re-set my palate.

Sampled at RBWG Tampa. Thanks to whoever shared this! Copper pour with a tiny white head. Nose is pretty hot, as expected. Some tropical fruit character peaks though - orange and a bit of grapefruit. Donut. Similar flavor. Dominated by booze with slight accents of peppery, earthy hop. Some sweet caramelized orange. Full body, oily.

Thick caramel color with no foam at all and thick viscous marks in the glass. Sweet, hoppy, caramel, thick alcohol nose. This smells like hop liqueur. Thick raisin sweet alcoholic taste with a light sting. Too much hops and alcohol and diabetes. Bitter tart aftertaste. This beer is an interesting experiment, but bring a lot of friends if you open a bottle, you don’t need a lot of this beer.

BrewDog Warszawa, 31.07.2016. W aromacie alkohol i silny akcent rafineryjny występujący w wielu ipach lecz mi nieodmiennie kojarzący się z Big Worster. Intensywnie słodko - gorzkie, esencjonalnie rafineryjne. Szorstkie i zawiesiste. Bardzo, bardzo gęste. Bardzo dużo ipy w ipie czyli wręcz esencja ipy.

25ml sample at Brewdog Dundee. Wednesday afternoon and the bartender rolled her eyes when I ordered. Ha. Bottle had a wine-saver style cork in it and had already been opened, not that it gets points off for that. Pours an oily, clear, caramel brown with not the faintest sign of any head and heavy legs like a scotch. Nose is just booze really, more cheap Irish whiskey than anything else, honey too, a bit musky - like overdone melon, plenty of pine too. Flavor has... WOOO.... hot booze. HAHAHA. Wow, rocket fuel. Very harsh, caramel, honey, lots of pine, industrial too. Very hard on the palate and hot all the way down. Yowzers. Nothing about this reads beer, this is a liqueur, plain and simple. Shouldn’t be rateable.

Light nutbrown with no head. Draws curtains like a cognac in the glass. Aroma has tons og alcohol but also intense aroma of raisins and plumbs. I sensed hoppiness at first but the alcohol quickly tool over and now its all I can smell. The taste is extreme. Lots of sweetness and lots of salty liqourice taste. Leaves a burn. Hardcore stuff. But actually not bad. Kind of like a hardcore bitter like Fernet Branca.

Taster at Oluhuone Kaisla. Aroma of honey, pine needles, wood floor, very pretty. Pours flat dark ruby, looks like a good Islay. Strong booze on the tongue, salty and burning. Stinging aggressive palate. Just smell it and look at it, but don’t try to drink...

Wow!! Strongest beer I’ve ever tasted. 25ml measure, 41% Vol. Needs to be sipped. Strong smell of alcohol. Dark ruby hue. Smooth, strong taste on alcohol, followed by flavours of hops and caramel tones.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: AUG 21, 2016 Received a small sample at Mitra Vismarkt, Groningen. Appearance: clear golden, slightly orangey, with no head nor carbonation visible. The liquid is dense and looks quite viscous. Aroma: very strong hop notes. Some grapefruit and mango but mainly hop resin. Even some whisky character due to the alcohol content. Taste: medium sweetness and high bitterness. Feels quite salty. Some malts, but maily hop resins with some indistinguishable fruits very far away. Finish is very longlasting. Palate: full bodied, dense oily texture and no carbonation. If you read this Bas: Thanks a lot!
