3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Was given a bottle for a tasting at a homebrewers case swap. Over-the-top as expected and not particularly easy to drink. Aroma totally dominated by hot alcohol with some toffee/carmel notes emerging from underneath. Head consisted of a scattering of coarse bubbles that quickly vanished. Viscous and really sticky mouthfeel. Hot alcohol lingeres throughout the finish although there is a pleasant malt/toffee presence at the end. Still I was glad to have had it.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: MAR 28, 2015 A nip at Brewdog Edi. Pours dark ruby. Aroma is like concentrated IPA, strong sweet caranel malts and fruity hops. Taste is like liquor, still reminds of the concentrated IPA. In absolute terms it is quite horrible but just a thing to try. Points are just something.

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.

Micro bottle sent by Peter. Thanks bro. Nose is super booze and grassy. Still some hop character. Some resin. Taste is peppermint bøøšt juice and bitter. My ears are on fire. Lots of caramel and fuck I’m frunk.

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. I’ll 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.
