2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Poison bottle. Straight from the bottle. Malty, sweet, fruity, oily hops in aroma. Very malty and sweeet and hoppy in taste. Dry mouthfeel. Harsh but full of flavors. Didn’t expect that. Beer is not completely killed and I like it. Sipper.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
60ml bottle (Alus Celle, Riga)
Rather pleasant sweetish malty base, but quite a pleasant hop liqueuer on top of that. Same goes for the taste. Does have a big alcohol booze burn if you drink it at above zero temperatures I’m sure (I can breathe fire from it), but I’m drinking this at -10C, and it slips down rather easily as a sipper, as a hop liqueuer. Bitterness is nettley and spicy, but fits perfectly with whatever it is. I was expecting more breadiness, from what others had said. No mind, I liked it as the hop liqueuer.

Schwarz, Schlieren im Glas. Ohne CO2. Geruch wie ein Lösemittelschlag in’s Gesicht mit Sherrynoten. Im Mund pappig. Im Nachgeschmack dann sprittig. Läuft heiß den Rachen runter.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
60ml [?] phial. Opaque, dark brown colour, no head, everlasting lacings stain the clear glass into brown. Intense cough syrup aroma, nose cleaning menthol or eucalyptus tang, notes of molasses, liqueur, Grand Marnier, Averna, tea, liquorice, sorrel, Scotch thistle, sage. Four staged taste cascade starts with molasses, moves over liquorice and tea to Scotch thistle and sage; a good deal of alcohol, naturally. Hardly to be rubricated under beer; a taste etude nevertheless.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Deep mahogany body, no head. Aroma has much alcohol, resiny and sweet notes. Much bitterness. Liqourice, some orange. Somehow there is something that reminds me of beer. Harsh.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Nose like superintense barleywine - hoppy, caramel malty. Its quite warming, but ABV goes quite well to this BEER (underline). Lovely maltiness, nice that hops arent drowned in ABV and still delivers awesome fruitiness, dried fruits
Quite intense sweetness with solid bitterness. Thick and bit sticky. I loved Penguin, but was quite sceptic before approaching this one, but. .its quite awesome. Love it.
