Dfonorow (1455) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 28, 2014
Pre-DLD bottle share in 2014. Pour is deep black with no head. Aroma is of strong alcohol, brown sugar, and tar. Flavor is very smoky with notes of burnt malt, chocolate, cigar smoke, and licorice. Tastes like scotch with some sugar added, better than I expected.

weaselkenievil (1608) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - APR 23, 2014
Birthday beer in The Macc, Macclesfield, Cheshire. Very dark brown with pretty much no head. Aroma of cough syrup, alcohol, sherry. Flavour is lots of warm alcohol,hint of chocolate and licorice, smokey lip burning finish. Good effort I suppose!

stravale (2104) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - APR 18, 2014
Bottle @ Oslo, Galway [160414] ... got a free sample of this at the bar! Thanks a million!
Dark brown, clear, no head
Aroma - Lots of booze, deep rich sweet dark malts, bit of solvent (prob the alcohol),
Taste - Alcohol, very thich rich dark sweet raisin malts, molasses, sweet dark chocolate, very rich dried fruit raisin malts.
Palate - No carb, very rich body of malts with this thin alcohol layer, very sweet, lots of alcohol. Finish as main flavour, fiery alcohol spirit.
Overall - Yeah itís a gimmick. More like a boozy liqueur. Well, itís the strongest beer (well itís debatable itís a beer it is after itís been eisbocked this much) iíve had....certainly a memorable one but not that great

What a treat to get to sample this - thanks Hoff! Close your eyes and imagine licking the bottom of an ashtray. Really. Not. Good. Super fun to try though.

blipp (6125) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - APR 17, 2014
Bottle. Pours amber brown with a beige head. Booze, burnt shoe leather, malt syrup (like Malta Goya), more booze, and sadness. Just awful, an undrinkable mess.

TheHOFF43 (1752) - Robbinsdale, Minnesota, USA - APR 14, 2014
Bottle opened by me, shared 20 ways, still had too large of a pour. Really a terrible beer. Incredibly boozy/hot/offensive. Smokey in a bad way. I donít even know what to say but it was bad.

DalzAle (1988) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - APR 12, 2014
Bottle shared by TheHOFF43 (thanks for the tick!) Dark brown/black pour, strong alcohol aroma. Flavor is an offensive blend of hot alcohol, smoke, scotch and sadness. Terrible beer, especially for the price. Novelty beer, nothing more.
