Can 50cl. A yellow beer with no head. Wowww veru alcoholic beer but the alcohol is quite well hidden, very sweet, bit bitter hopy, but no so bad at the end. Some toasted notes, quite ok beer.

Beer4000 (4570) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 29, 2010
750ml bottle @ Plan B. Clear golden body with a diminishing white head. Aroma feels sweet and sticky from malt, sugar and alcohol with a hint of caramel. Flavor is sweet, way to sweet, candy sugar, some caramel, spicy and to much alcohol. A bit thin, but also sticky sweet body with alcohol in the finish. Not really bad, but some lack of balance and too sweet with to much alcohol flavor.

Thanks to Beer2000 for a sample of this one. Small white head over a golden body. Sweet aroma with rather bland fruits and alcohol. Tart and sweet fruits in flavour with a touch of caramel malts. A bit distracting alcohol vapour. Sticky sweetness (CBF, 08.05.2010).

oldrtybastrd (3222) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - APR 3, 2010
Shared this one w/SkyCop32. Pours a nice Medium golden yellow color. Minimal fizzy white head, lasted maybe a minute or two. Aromas of light spices, a touch of brown sugar, and something vegetal. Flavor is lightly sweet and hints of spiciness. Touch of citrus. Not to bad, just not something I’d like more than a glass of.

KimJohansen (10350) - Frederiksberg C, DENMARK - FEB 2, 2010
Clear amber with a tiny white head. Sweet malty aroma with fruity and yeasty notes. Flavour was sweet with malty, fruity and yeasty notes. Finished dry from the hops. Had some warming alcohol I’d say.

Abio (1628) - Waasland, BELGIUM - FEB 1, 2010
A very strong beer, but it lacks some strong taste. Even the aroma and appearance aren’t good. Not to bad to drink after all...

wimpie133 (380) - Brugge, BELGIUM - NOV 21, 2009
Can, 50 cl, alone. Dark golden beer, only a little bubbles, medium white unlacing head disappearing fast to a little white head. Smell is the one of sugar, malt and alcohol. The taste is alcohol, with sugar and some malts on the background and finishing with alcohol. After a while alcohol is the onyl thing I still taste in this beer. Maybe it would have been a better choice to make a good beer with more pallet and a less alcohol taste than to make just a very strong beer which I have to throw away because of the overwhelming alcohol taste.

madmitch76 (15840) - , Essex, ENGLAND - NOV 8, 2009
22nd February 2008. Sweet aromatic malt with a sour note - much like the Gold - but this is more intense and with a subtle brandt note.

Skinnyviking (7178) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 10, 2009
Bottle. Low but lasting fluffy white head. Clear golden body. Mild malty aroma with alcohol and grassy notes. Alcohol dominated barley malt flavor with peppery notes, low carbonation and a long dry and bitter aftertaste. Guess I got one of the good ones.
