suurjuust (2039) - ESTONIA - DEC 17, 2014
Clear orange golden, small white head that quickly dissipates. Weak nose of malts, perfume and sweetness. Flavor is metallic-perfumey notes and malt, sweetness, spice. Peppery-alcoholic finish. Alcohol, pepper and metallic notes linger. Mouthfeel is almost dense, oily to dry. Alcohol steamrolls the finish. Almost out of the hobofuel league, but not quite. "Finest Platinum" feels like trolling at this point.

Boxereddy (262) - BELGIUM - DEC 13, 2014
Helder goudkleurig bier met snelzakkende schuimkraag. Neus van alcohol en oud fruit. Sterke smaak van alcohol en suiker snoep / caramel. Zoete afdronk met sterk alcoholische toets. Een echte moutlikeur!

Fashawn (492) - Montesarchio, ITALY - NOV 8, 2014
Birra selvaggia e poco rispettosa. Biondo ocra senza testa, abbastanza torbida all’aspetto. Aroma metallico, con qualche reminiscenza di zucchero caramellato e qualche mela. In bocca è dolcissima, come melassa. Beverina poiché il.corpo non è per niente rotonda, ed è quasi acquosa come consistenza. Birra per chi vuol.bere violentemente facendola scendere giù.

Calisky (2012) - ALSACE, FRANCE - NOV 1, 2014
Bu chez un ami... Couleur dorée, mousse qui disparait. Nez d’alcool et vieux fruits. Gout fort d’alcool et sucre candy/caramel. Pas si mauvais en soi, mais trop fort en alcool et sucre, une malt liquour.... pas rafraichissant, juste l’alcool.

Moolesen (358) - NETHERLANDS - SEP 14, 2014
Bottle 33cl. Golden with a white head. Strong pils aroma and some buxus, not nice (maybe it had been stored too warm). Also sweet malt is in the nose. Obvious a rich taste where there is no sihn of the strong alcohol %. Taste is ok but not outstannding and surprisingly a short finish.

Een zwaar bier met een heel speciale smaak. Er gaan minder mensen fan van zijn dan van malheur of bush

kerenmk (3483) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - AUG 30, 2014
Draught at the 55 Drafts & More. In rishon le’zion, not nyc. Clear gold, white head. Smells of 12% abv and heavy on alcohol in the mouth too. Medium body, alcoholic finish and nasty. As nasty as i remembered it. But hey, it’s a rating. Pretty, nice to handle glass though.

Alengrin (3675) - BELGIUM - AUG 19, 2014
UPDATED: JUL 23, 2015 Another alcoholic strong lager in this series, with pretentious bottle, afterwards sold in 50 cl cans as well. Thin, bit creamy, off-white head, colour golden blonde with warm orange hue, clear. Rather weak, sweet aroma of orange peel, orange juice, honey, iron, lots of brandy- and rhum-like alcohol and solvents. Sweet sugary onset, orange, medium carbonation, quickly overpowered by an astringent, way too strong alcohol effect, which makes the finish utterly unpleasant along with the sticky sweetness from the beginning. It does not surprise me that the 50 cl cans mostly attract notorious alcoholics these days, who do not care about flavour at all as long as they can get drunk.
