Eructoblaster (3113) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 13, 2004
That beer was especially brewed for DDC 6th anniversary, and I choose it for my 250th rating. It pours a very nice gold body topped with an average white bubbly head that leaves a good lacing. Strong and well balanced malty/hoppy aroma with fruity, spicy and herbal hints. Taste is also great. It bears some sweet and honeyish notes. Very nice bittersweet finish. This is definitely one of the best European Strong Lagers you can have.

Bottle (341 ml). Completely clear golden with a medium mostly diminishing white head and huge lacing. Aroma is grassy and mineral with notes of caramel and alcohol. Taste is grassy with booze, noble hops and caramel. Mouthfeel is oily. Impressive body for a pilsner. This beer is greatly balanced, quite complex and fairly drinkable for is 8.5% abv. Massive Imperial Pilsner. Another wonderful beer by DDC!

341 ml bottle from Broue Ha Ha, served cold in a tulip glass.

App.: Clear golden-amber with a so-so off-white froth. Aroma: Strong, rich biscuit malt, somewhat fruity and deep, light caramel notes, grassy hops, peppery, floral and perfumed, clean, rich and deep. Palate: Medium+ body, moderately full effervescence, slick and smooth. Flav.: Quite perfumed, floral, somewhat spicy, alcohol, deep, rich biscuit and caramel, strong malts and strong hops in harmony; sweet with good bitterness and a long, lingering bitter biscuit finish with some nice perfumed top notes.

Now I now why God rested on the 7th day.

SphinxTX (2876) - Mata Gorda, Texas, USA - DEC 3, 2011
Bottle thanks to Crusianbeer. Pours clear gold with white head. Aroma of faint vegitable, nice big earthy hop profile, very malty and spicy. Flavor much the same and kinda sweet. Medium body with medium high carbonation. Solid brew!

Damico (2681) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 20, 2012
Pours golden maple syrup mostly unclear with a white head. The aroma is sweet syrupy, hoppy, and boozy. The flavor is similar with booze laying on the palate of a medium syrupy body that smooths out the pilsner well. There are sweet hoppy notes in there in a subtle way.

willblake (2654) - Bel Air, Maryland, USA - JUL 20, 2005
07.09.05, 07.11.05 Tap at brewpub. Nearly red-orange pour with fleeting white head. Yeasty aroma, some alcohol presence but not burning. Body is quite thin but oily. Fruity. Short finish. Missing some bitter or grassy hops, etc. It’s a big time brew with a small time flavor, whatever that means?

asheft (2550) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 10, 2012
[bottled 08/12] Spicy melanoidin malt and fruity hops along with a background of sweet malt. Slightly hazy gold under wispy white top and ring. Sweet base malt with some sweet herbal and fruity hops flavour: apricot. Very good bitterness to balance the sweet. Faint cardboard note. Medium body, medium carbonation, fruity and faint bitter finish.

Quevillon (2548) - Boisbriand, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 30, 2006
Bu au Mondial de la Bière 05. Forte, mais assé délicieuse, sucré et un petit peu réfréchissante.
