3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

Copper color with a thin off-white head. A ton of alcohol and malt sweetness aromas throughout. There is a slight harshness to this beer as a result of this. May need a year of cellaring. It was an interesting night cap

2.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
This beer is like flat lemonade once poured as its head disappears in an instance. The aroma has a slight peach scent and the taste is of a very fortified beer. Due to the strength of the beer it is too difficult to drink.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Apperance: pours with a clear, dark amber-copper color and a light head of foam that settles very quickly. Moderate levels of carbonation make this a pleasantly lively lager.
Aroma: Wow. Intense and very interesting/complex. Some nutty hazelnut aromas ride on top of a Solera Sherry-like base. A suggestion of sweetness.
Flavor & Finish: Sweet entry, like an Extra Cream Sherry. The nut tones are somewhat surprising. This beer finishes with some warmth that travels down to the stomach. A very powerful, thick, sweet (but not cloyingly so), and heavy malt bomb with a long, long finish. A great sipping beer that you’d almost want to pour in a brandy glass. I love this beer.
