2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
0,02l from bottle @ Vihreä Haltiatar. Pours hazy orange with no head. Aroma is malts and hops. Flavor is malts and hops with very little alcohol. Not too great and definitely not 65%.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Amber and somewhat hazy with non-existing head. Vague aromas. Some caramel, sweet sherry and dried fruit. Sweet and no bitterness and light sour.
Very thin and flat and dull tasting notes. Barely drinkable and sure as hell not even close to 65%

Cloudy dark amber color with no head (I didn’t expect sediment in this beer). Light aroma of milk chocolate. Some caramel flavor, moderate sweetness, some yeast, regular bitterness, some vegetable bitterness too; the mouthfeel is a bit oily; the final is a bit nutty, and there is some gentle alcohol warmth.
Tastes like 12% ABV, and it can’t possibly be anything above 18-20% ABV.

0.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
Bottle. Let’s get the obvious out of the way first, there is absolutely no way this is 65% abv. Ok then, dark amber pour with no head. Stale malts on the nose. Flavor is weak and bland. Just not good any way you look at it. Very unimpressed.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle. No alcohol on nose. Some sweetness, syrupy toffee, light hoppiness, no alcohol burn at all. Tasted alongside multiple 19% beers, would struggle to be around 15% - future lab tests have shown it to be closer to 15. Actually not a terrible beer, but points lost for the rip-off.

I was a dumb ass that paid for this. No way this is 65%. When i contacted them on facebook and called them out mentioning that tactical nuclear penguin lit on fire and theirs did not they blocked me from commenting. I have another bottle and will be paying to have it tested and will send results.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours like blonde yeast gelatin suspended in a caramel malt felatin. Boy, this stuff is thick. The aroma is old textbooks and libraries reminiscent of college awesomeness. The texture is like 80w90 gear oil. It leaves clear sediment on the glass. The smell is that of a scottish ale with oak, peat and earth and more peat. Its decidedly smooth on the palate. Thick as pudding. Flavors of toffee, caramel, gelatin, and a hop syrup reduction abound. Amazingly drinkable if the strength advertisers true.
