out of a red bull can while roaming the streets of Brussels. 12 percent at a little store? high in alcohol and medium booze flavor; sweet and not really reccomended

On tap at Ma Che Siete Venuti a Fa in Trastevere, Rome. Smells high in alcohol; almost vinous. Dark gold body with some carbonation. Thin white to slightly off white head. Some lace. Higher alcohol flavor. Smooth and strong. Somewhat sweet. Pretty good overall. Doesn’t taste like 12%. A nice understated sipper that gets you where you want to go quickly. Strong.

on tap at the Kulminator. pours almost clear golden with white head. nose is sweet grains, candy sugar, subtle spicyness and funk. flavor is sweet alcohol and candy sugar clash with wet grains and coriander. not much balance and beauty here. lots of alcohol in the finish. mouth feel is watery. this is really is an alcohol bomb. why did I waste a tasting at kulminator on this? man I guess I assumed they wouldn’t have a beer this bad on tap, but whatever, i guess i had a bad beer at kulminator once.

Pale yellow of color with a weak off white head. An aroma of cucumber, fresh notes, hints of sweets and apples. A flavor of sweets, spice and dry finish.

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 Bičre du Demon: almeno quella lo confessa di essere una cacata, questa se la tira.

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
