jbrus (4991) - Delft, - FEB 23, 2010
Bottle@TastingSession. The aroma is very alcoholic, like brandy with quite some apple, raisin and stuff. No head at all, not even a little fizzy head. Flavour is strange. Starts off as brandy or something but has this unbalanced character due to the hop and mainly malty bitterness. The palate is horrible. Sharp and alcoholic like a very young whisky. Rating it like I would rate a beer isn’t fair, I understand that. Rating it on it’s means I really dislike it. Rating it as a liqueur or spirit still doesn’t give it any credits.

FunkyF (635) - Örebro, SWEDEN - NOV 28, 2015
Flaska på Örebro ÖoW. Kolsvart med brunt skum. Tung doft med soja, choklad och karamell. Värmande sprit med söt smak och även lite syrligher.

Not for feint hearted, but perfect in place of a glass of port or whiskey at the end of the night

Bottle sample @ Briljant, Haarlem. Sweet, boozy aroma with chocolate and licorice, dark fruits, light iodine. Taste is sweet, boozy, aftertaste of alcohol, iodine, hint of chocolate somewhere in the aftertaste. Not bad.

charule (1822) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 16, 2015
25cL at Brewdogs Bristol. Poured clear dark brown with no head. Powerful aroma very sweet like sherry malts burnt caramel and booze. No carb med bod. Concentrated stout taste roasted malts. Worried it would be awful but in small sips not bad. YOU WILL NOT ENJOY IN LARGE SIPS.

martjoobolut (1924) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - AUG 23, 2015
From the very old notes, hence this is not a real rating, but more just a mark to myself that I have tried this at one point. Not really a beer, just a product that reminds beer. It’s very sweet and hoppy, alcohol is very noticeable. Still it’s a decent sipper if you are looking for strong beer like product.
