Bottle from Fratto. He wasn’t going to purchase it until I informed him it was a malt liquor and he snatched it up. Clear golden color. Little head. Aroma is dust, grain,paint thinner, and cardboard. Flavor is heavy grain, slight sweetness and clay earth. Finish is gone.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
20110117 12oz bottle thanks to dmac. I’ve been aging this one until it reached proper maturity. Phenomenal aroma of banana-bubblegum paint thinner is so overpowering that it’s making me excited for my first sip almost immediately. Lovely pale yellow beneath thin white foam that lasts. Flavor is actually not as shockingly bad as expected, but is almost totally dominated by the alcohol and some waffle-like sweetness. Lingering heat. Meh, I’ve had worse. Thanks for the Malta tick, Dave!

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle. Pours clear golden with airy white head. Clear aroma of yeast, skunk and cheap malt. Sweet flavour of malt and yeast, complemented by heavy bitter notes of alcohol (and to some extent hops). Lingering alcohol presence. Bitter finish. I don’t like this beer style and I don’t like this particular beer, either. Still, I have tasted worse SPLs.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
On tap at Malta Festival outside European Parliament (Brussels). Golden body with small but promising head. Nose quite strong and noticeable Alcohol content. Taste is sweet, with bread and malts, but also quite alcy. Too much for me. Quite creamy texture. Malt liquour, not a style with promise.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
smells like alcohol and grain. flavor is sweet, bitter, and alcohol. mostly alcohol though. it’s not well-hidden in this beer. this is almost disgusting but not quite that bad. borderline i’d say. just needs to be sold in a cheap 40oz bottle instead of a six pack.
