UM02 (319) - Quebec, CANADA - SEP 29, 2012
Smooth tasting strong beer. The malt has a bit of sweetness and heaviness but is contrasted with a hop bitterness that comes out in the aftertaste. The aftertaste leaves a nice tingle on the tongue and the high alcohol content is well hidden. I am not tasting some of the complexity that others are though. It is very pleasant and smooth but for me lacks the complexity to give it top marks. It is mostly a contrast between the initial heavy malt flavour and a delicate bitter aftertaste. The contrast is quite pleasant though and this is one of the easiest drinking strong beers I have tasted.

Pours clear and yellow/amber. Rather sweet aroma and slight dried hay/cereal.sweet cereal taste with a boozy kick in the mid palate and a slight hoppy note. I don’t often drink pilsner, but when I do let it be this good.

341ml bottle. Pretty standard beer look, gold/amber, filtered, moderate white head. Aroma and taste are mostly hay and grapefruit hops. Body is pretty average, maybe a bit more oily than some. Overall, more hop bitterness in this than I was expecting for the style, but that was not unwelcome.

DYCSoccer17 (3357) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 2, 2005
Draft at Mondial 2005. Very hoppy aroma with citrus notes present. Perhaps I can smell some nobles and Saaz with some boozy undertones as well. I detect a tad of sulfur as well. Moderately hazy orange-honey color with an off-white head. Quite sweet to start with honey notes turning more grainy and quite cereal like. More sweetness in the finish. Moderately cloying. Alcohol is hidden well.

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - JUN 7, 2005
Sample at the Mondial. Bright, cloudy orange-gold, thick white head of moderate duration...lightly fruity/malty nose, melon and dry grass...big malty flavors, light alcohol, sweet and a bit syrupy, grainy and with strange hints of licorice, herbal/grassy hops subdued to the rather thick mouthfeel which dries out considerably at the finish. Seems a bit oxidized to me, but still worth a try.

Amber orangeish color, with a soft foamy white head, leafy, pale malt, hop flower aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate with crystal malt, leafy,grassy, having a touch of alcoholic warmth, in a good bittering hops finish.

On tap at the pub during the RBSG. Clear golden color with a syrup sweet malt nose and a thin, off white head. Big candi sugar, caramel sweetness flavor with overripe oranges and some peach. Noticably big beer.

@ 8.9%,this beer was a bit too high in alcohol for my beer taste! amber color with a white head that lasts well until you(i was) all drunk .malt flavor is dominant.

Thin, fluffy head that does leave some lacings. Aroma is herbs and hay, unknown hops. Taste/mouth is where it gets interesting. Heavy oily feel on the tongue with a robust hop bittterness and an alcohol bite, just a little. Some grapefruit (?) flavor also make an appearance. Interesting to say the least, you should drink this colder than most beers as it is just more balanced that way.
