3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
11.2oz bottle, code on back reads 2213293. Clear amber / orange color. Good one-finger khaki head. Fades to a decent-sized ring around the edge, but doesn’t leave any lace. Bigger body. Soft, smooth carbonation. More dry texture. Sweet taste (indeed, not cloying), and about the amount of booze taste you would expect from 11% ABV. Though there isn’t any bothersome burn or bite for me, just a nice bit of warmth. After taste has kind of an Eastern European malt liquor feel to it, though. Not much to the aroma, though. Just a caramel sweet and nutty malt flavor, kind of a sherry aroma. Light tropical fruit notes. Solid eisbock

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear amber color with off white head. Vinous aroma of alcohol, cherries, raisins and port wine. Tastes of cherries as well, and I like cherries. Very sweet, but a nice tangerine sweetness. Hefty beer with lots of flavor.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
330 ml bottle. Garnet color topped by a small beige cap. Nose is vinous malt with notes of toasted cinnamon Pop Tarts. Flavor is bittersweet malt with a hint of salted caramel and brandy. Faint resiny, herbal hops. Finishes dry with a warming alcohol burn. I first had this about 30 years ago when it was one of the strongest beers in the world. Quite unique back then. Not so much now. Still, an interesting tasting brew with whiskey-like qualities.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Olor a frutas secas, vainilla y un tostado especial. Escasa espuma, su coloración es medianamente cristalina con una turbiedad al final (supongo que por el asiento natural) de un tono ambar rojizo muy llamativo. El sabor es ligeramente dulce con notas amargas y fuerte presencia de lúpulo. El alcohol está presente pero no eclipsa el conjunto en ningún momento. Deja una sensación similar al licor al final del trago. Si no gustan de cervezas fuertes y de alto gradaje, no se le acerquen, es bastante agresiva para gustos sutiles.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours a clear amber color, topped with a medium off-white head. Malty aroma, dark fruity feel and caramel. Taste is sweet and malty, lots of alcohol presence (too much), some bitterness in the finish and metallic a bit. Just not nice.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
11.2 oz. bottle served in shaker- poured a 85% transparent (other 15 is kind of cloudy), darkened brown color, 2mm white foamy head formed and laced very nicely upon the vessel. Aroma of alcohol, clove, and banana. Hits the mouth with a medium body, malt is washed in a sea of alcohol much like I will be shortly, hard clove in the middle, finish is very boozy. Would tear this apart, but I’m getting loaded tonight!
