LordCorkscrew (1774) - Ronco Scrivia (GE), ITALY - AUG 11, 2007
Bevuta alla spina al John Martin a Busalla; nel bicchiere molto fashion. Aroma alcolico, sapore tipo alcool da lavare i pavimenti, accentuatissimo nel retrogusto. Fastidiosa, birra da fighetti per ubriacarsi subito; peggio della Bière du Demon: almeno quella lo confessa di essere una cacata, questa se la tira.

Grovlam (4154) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 25, 2007
Bottle 75 cl. This was served very cold, and it was actually quit nice as long as it was cold. As soon as it got warmer, the alcohol became overwhelming in a bad way. That said, it was still quit nice when served cold. Large fizzy white head that mostly lasted. Light cloudy at the very end, else clear and sparkling body with a pale almost citrus like color. Aroma was very pepper and spice with notes of light citrus, caramel, fruit, yeast and when cold light notes of alcohol. Medium bodied with an average to lively carbonation and alcoholic texture. Light sweet notes with some bitter and acidic notes. Light sweet and alcoholic finish. When warm, the alcohol pretty much destroys the experience of this beer. It was rated for its Palate and overall when it was cold!

i can honestly say that this was the worst beer that ive ever had. worse than beast ice or natty light or steel reserve. it looks like apple juice with no head and tastes like REALLY SHITTY vodka mixed with it. im talking popov/aristocrat shitty in the USA... i could have probably had a six pack in the time it took me to drink this and i almost puked 4 times

Bottle at KØ07. Clear golden colour, small white head. Caramelly flavour, very peppery and harsh. Too much pepper. Way unbalanced.

DonMagi (5596) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 5, 2007
This was really offensive. Think a european strong lager, but with extra alcohol, it makes tennents super look good. Sweet alcohol i had a few sips an threw it away.

oberabcbbsok (687) - Hoboken, BELGIUM - MAY 19, 2007
Tasted it first in can, I had it also in bottle and now i tasted it from draft. The draft version is specialy made for the italian market but the Culminator in Antwerp has it from draft. A very strong beer where the alcohol is overwhelming. Gordon has better beers with lower alcohol

Ungstrup (29332) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAY 18, 2007
Bottled. A golden beer with next to no head. The aroma is sweet with strong notes of alcohol and fruit, but also a light metallic note from the alcohol. The flavor is sweet with notes of caramel, fruit, alcohol, and metal, and the body is quite thick.
