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!

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.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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

[330ml stoat, tasting at Cloisters, Edinburgh] I remember trying Tactical Nuclear Penguin when it was the strongest beer in the world – now it just seems like a quaint afterthought. Firstly, serving a beer in a stuffed animal is ridiculous. Secondly, the ‘beer’ inside is almost possible to characterise, particularly with the aroma. The closest thing I could compare it to would be glue – it has that incredibly heady acrid wallop that makes you take a step back and look to open a window. On top of this were all kinds of things – paint, neat alcohol, whisky, a little fruit. The taste was even more confusing, it’s like every beer-related adjective distilled (no pun intended) into a liquid. Alcohol. Fruit. Wood. Vanilla. Lemon. Pain.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A Mes rate. Bottle thanks to James and Tom.
I’ve had this a couple of times now and I still can’t get my head around it. It’s drinkable for a start. Just. A cleanish gold looker with not even a hint of head, even if you shake it violently. No surprises there then. This is a tough one to rate. It’s beer Jim, but... well, you know the rest. It’s just a truck load of everything ramped up so high it’s ejecting itself through the roof. Amazing heat, caramel, crème brûlée, unreal alcohol but the most incredible thing for me is the hop juice concentrate. It’s just mental. Madder than a bag of frogs. With spanners. Huuuuge Simcoe glutony. Not bright or crisp or piney, just huge. And thick. And juicy as hell. It takes the nose hairs off when you sniff it, and promptly puts them back on your chest when you drink it. Bloody great.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 20/20
Bottle at the Rake, London. Pours a rich, glowing, almost radioactive gold with no head. Holds a skunky, dank hop aroma. First impression of the flavor is fire and burning. Afterwards, there is perceptible sweetness, lightly bready malts, and some grassy hops. Some Golden Ale characteristics definitely come through. The beer is medium in body with basically no carbonation and ridiculous alcohol heat. With even a tiny sip, once the liquid crosses your lips it engulfs your entire mouth with alcohol warmth. The finish is boozy with some modest Belgian character present. A super-fun beer to experience, and really pretty nice to drink.
