3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Small taste from bottle at Brewdog AB:04 launch, White Horse. Colour deep amber, non-existant head and carbonation. Nose; deep burn from alcohol, fruity, wood, varnish, aromatic. Taste; unsuprising overpowering alcohol and hop burn, hardwood, varnish, fruity, syrupy and medicinal. Glad to have had the opportunity to taste it, but not what I would describe as drinkable!

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Just a small taster during Ølbutikkens great tasting session of the strongest beers in the world arranged at Ørsted Ølbar in Copenhagen. Clear gold-amber body. Naked surface. Smell of bready malts and heating from the alcohol. Brandy-whisky like taste with more alcohol heating. Exciting, but really not very drinkable, 06.11.2010.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
De botella, huge thanks to Pinball for this sample. Deep golden colour, no head at all. Very sweet alco herby bit fruity strong alco aroma. Explosive, thick mouthfeel. Sweet alco bit fruitish burning flavour, the maltiness in found somewhere in the alcohol. Alco warming well lasting finish. The strongest and best of the strongest beers of the world (20 + % by vol.). A lot better than the German (Schorsbräu) ones.

Thanks to the BeerTapTV guys for a taste at the Beer Bloggers Conference. Smells like whiskey. Nice golden color. Taste is of beer and moonshine - it does retain the beery character but burns like a shot. Extremely interesting... would have loved to make a mixed drink with it (with bitters it might have been really weird and rocking) but I doubt I’ll ever get a chance to try anything like that again.

Sample at Stockholm Beer Festival 2010. Golden color, no head. Malty aroma. Alcohol flavor, hops, grass, malty. Strong alcohol flavor but still there is a beer feeling to it.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Handbottle. Courtesy of madmitch76. Pours a clear amber with no head. The nose is very boozy with some Calvados accents - the booze makes me cough. Medium body - if at all it makes sense to talk about "body" in a beer like this. The alcohol burns my lips - seriously burns. Again flavours of apple brandy, oops....I mean Calvados. Very salty and minerally with oxidized woody notes. Ends fairly bitter. Not all bad actually - I enjoy these experiments. Thanks for the effort yespr. 261010
