3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark brown, nowhere near black. Disparate bubbles quickly fades away. No lacings. If it wasn’t for the nice legs, this would look highly unimpressive.
The nose is intensely boozy with powerful fusel alcohol fumes. Deeper breaths will burn a hole in your nasal septum. Decent aromas underneath the alcohol though. Caramel, roasted malts, smoky whisky and peat. Hints of ham and licorice.
The taste is like getting slapped in the face by Satan. Lots of sweetness, mostly derived from the alcohol. Roasted malts, peat, caramel and charred wood make a quick appearance before the alcohol takes over, leading to a hot finish with powerful notes of salty licorice, sweet whisky, oak and peat.
Full-bodied, basically no carbonation, sticky texture.
If this beer wont grow testicles on your chest, no one will. Better than expected, but far from good.

The most expensive beer I have bought. Not worth the price, but it was nice to try it out. The aroma is of smoke and alcohol. Very thick.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sampled from a bottle. Deep brown body under a shining surface. Almost like a powerful port wine all the way, added by a touch of camp fire. Spiced vapour of alcohol. Sharp, long lived taste and aftertaste. Rather sweet (CBF, 07.05.2010).

1.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bottle @ UDRM, also a try in Glasgow @ Bullits place. The aroma has coal, soy sauce, chocolate and roast. But is a bit weak actually. Black coloured stuff with no head. The taste has charcoal, roast, coffee, lots of coffee, medicin and alcohol. Some bitterness in the end. The taste is really realy bad. Rating it like a beer would give it a 1.4, rating it like a liquor would also give it a 1.4. That’s easy then. I like the joke, but the stuff is crap. It makes you wish you were drinkin’ Heineken.

Orange-brown, no head. Aroma heavy malty (caramel, smoke, tar, whisky cask, peat, wood), moderate bitter, heavy alcohol. Flavor heavy sweet and bitter, lots of alcohol. Solid body, flat.
Bottle at DBF 2011.
To much alcohol, but still impressing brew.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
No head on an opaque sepia beer with some orangey reflections. Very fruity & alcoholic nose, with lots of berries (on alcohol), boerejongens, old brandy and portwine, old velvet and plumcake. Fiery, extremely intense, with some resin-like firbranches flavour, and in the finish black plums, whiffs of cigar leaf. Fiery alcoholwarming, slick as petrol or white spirit. Again, intense is the word. It’s a gimmick - but a beautiful gimmick! Wow! Abject thanks to Davy for this heavenly sip of the forbidden fruit!
