Drowning toast in a pool of whisky…Caramel candy is floating around but there isn’t enough to be used as a buoy…A wet log then passes by and allows some dark fruit and sugar to survive and thus stay above the alcohol…

UPDATED: FEB 29, 2004 fresh: oops i dropped a sugardaddy candy in my dog's food..oh wait, nevermind, that was the aroma of this beer...what do you get when you take a farm's load of barley malt, absolutely no hops, too much sugar, and some yeast??...this horrifically strong tasting brew!... I heard that suicide bombers in Afghanistan drink this right before they die so to take their minds off of the pain of dying...sorta like biting your lip when you stub your toe...substituting one pain for another...so if you ever stub your toe or plan on bombing a discotech or subway train..this beers for you (1.8) 1992 version, drank 2004: Wow, what a frickin' improvement..this was like a chocolate malt shake...similiar to an aged samiclaus.

Sweet, rum-like nose. Deep orange gold, but no head. Very sweet, like brown sugar. Nutty and spicy. The alcohol lingers long after the taste profile is over. Smooth, clean palette. Lot of character to this beer - enjoyable for sure. Doesn’t go with food well, except maybe dessert.

Barley malt rum aroma and taste, hints of marcipan. Red light amber. Strong alcohol taste. It’s more like a barley wine.

Have you ever woke up after one too many and drank from that pepsi can sitting on your night stand only to find it flat with a cigarette butt in it? If you liked it try this beer.

2.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Spiced banana like aroma is pretty promising, while the productive foam quickly dissiaptes. Alcohol flavor dominates and makes tasting notes difficult. Maybe interesting to a Whiskey drinker but in the words of Eminem, ’I say that shit’s just clowing dog.’ It was probaly good as yhe strongest beer in the world but doesn’t even get that title anymore. Still it’s a marketing tool.

UPDATED: FEB 26, 2007 Pleasant but a bit disgusting. A really strong flavor (caramel, matl) for a really strong beer, too much alcohol. Easy to find in france

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Rich, golden red colour with little head. It smells sweet, although a not too sweet to put you off. The strength of flavour is immense, with a fortified wine taste about it. I couldnt drink too much of it, but its a nice tasting drink.

Almost no head. Orange colour. Tastes like cloudberries. But the alcohol-flavour dominates.
