2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: NOV 7, 2007 Maybe the best carlsberg out there, what is different from the other carlsberg beers...it has flavour, kinda sweetish and alcoholic, not very drinkable - one is enough for me, still it’s not a good beer but not that bad either.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Very peppery, metallic aroma. Medium dark, yellow colour. White head which disappears quickly. The beer looks quite flat. Very peppery and semi-sweet flavour, thick mouthfeel. The aftertaste is more peppery than bitter.

Not a very good beer, it is very thick, and the taste is very alchoholic, the beer should, when served, onluy be served in small amounts, and extremely cold.

SWEET and pretty alcoholic. A powerful beer but the sweetness is way too overwhelming and one-dimensional. Serve it cold and e.g. as an aperitif with a slice of lemon.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
I was intrigued by this beer, particularly the high alcohol content. Sweetish nose with a big whiff of alcohol, rich gold color, tall spongy head. Sweet honey malt and maybe something like raspberry in the background. A faint tinge of hops at the very end. Alcohol is very noticeable in the swallow. Full rich body and a creamy mouthfeel.

Dark golden color. Fizzy carbonation, no head. Sweet hoppy grass and cereal nose. Sweet, candy malt taste. A lot of alcohol, amost like a brandy.

I got this from a friend who used to live in Belgium and he hed it put away fro a couple years. He broke it out and we drank it. I didn't find it to be quite as offensive as the previous raters. Very heavy body...Flavor was malty with a heavy alcohol presence. Bitter aftertatse.

UPDATED: JAN 25, 2004 This is the strongest beer from Carlsberg and one of the strongest from Denmark. And I can tell you that Carlsberg is not good at brewing strong beers.
The taste of alcohol is way to penetrating, it's almost like drinking pure alcohol. The aroma too is very alcoholic. Last time I had this beer (at Carlsberg at a beer seminar) they served it with a piece of lime! Normally lime and beer dos not suit each other, but in this case it took just the top of the alcoholic taste and made it a little more drinkable.
