Fervent, heated bananas on which are spinkled light cinnamon and brown sugar...The foam that clings to the inside of your cheeks reveals candy canes and other Christmas sweets...All of this is of course bathing in a vat of relentless alcohol...Quite similar to their Bush Noël...

Nice frothy head. Color is an unfiltered amber/blond dream. This beer doesn’t hide the alcohol very well but I don’t think it intends to do so.

not a very bright colour and too much bubbles - Not a very intense aroma, but little bit malt - bad bad taste, I can’t compare the taste to an other beer, because it would be a disgrease to the other beer. -

Bloody hell. I’d likes to gets me hands on a case of this shit next time I have women trouble. Holy crap, this shit is gutter-style. "Hes a piss head through and through..." Shut up you stupid yobbos with your lame beer chant and just drink it, you brainless rugby VBs with crownies at home in daddy’s bar fridge. This is what real males drinks, truly a pungent brew... Why not just inject this likez da nil-by-mouth possie (you be in hospital anywayz)? Peace.

Bit afraid before, but it didn’t disappoint me at all. Strong without doubt, but tasteful

This is certainly not a bad beer but in my opinion I think that in attempting to create an heavy alcohol beer they forgot about balance and drinkability.

Apples and raspberries, butterscotch, or it could just be the vodka that is labeled as beer. No hiding the alcohol in this one. Has a sweet sugary finish though. Try it in a taster rack, couldn’t finish a whole beer.

Very overpowering alcohol taste, but a great golden/amber colour, and a very nice head.

Copper color. White dense head. Aroma is malty (caramel), sweet and with strong alcohol notes. Flavor is malty too but alcohol is praviling only in the heavy ending.

I was dubious about such a pale beer being able to carry off 12%abv. And I was right. There just isn’t enough flavour to balance the (admittedly rather smooth) alcohol content. I don’t see the point in making a beer that tastes so dull.
