75cl, from De Hopduvel Gent, not complex brew, too heavy, not balanced, clear, small head, nothing special, needs to be revised

DuffMan (6752) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 8, 2009
Can. Okay, save yourself some money and take an alcohol swab, wrap it in a bandaid, dip it in petrol, add a dollup of corn syrup and then suck on it. Or, if you can’t be bothered "homebrewing" this shit, then go ahead and spend the money if you must. But really, you should take my word that unless you live under a bridge in Belgium, this shit ain’t worth it. Drainpour.

altonbrownd (3681) - Brussels, BELGIUM - MAY 25, 2009
Can in Brussels. Dark body with slight head. Sweet nose and taste. But way too high ABV. Pure malt liquor. Pass.

I always over look this type of stuff when I see it on the shelf in supermarkets, as the price tag puts me off - $4 - $7 for the big can. Seems like cheap shitty lager. I was quite impressed with it though. It had a firm malt flavour that hid the 12%abv well. No new hops to speak of, however the ballance was earthy with slight herb.

harrisoni (13737) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAR 20, 2009
From a comical grey plastic bottle from an all night shop in Antwerp shared in my hotel room with Mesandsim. Clear gold, thin white head. Alcohol is prevalent throughout. Really just too hot on the end. Not good. Too syrupy on the malts. Plastic, horrible, bad aroma.

thewolf (11184) - Kolding, DENMARK - MAR 11, 2009
Can, bought @ Bier Palais, Brügge.
Pours golden with a small, frothy, white head. Aroma has stinging alcohol, hay, brewing cereal and general sweetness. Low carbonation, oily mouthfeel. Flavour has a lot of sharp alcohol, malts, light sweetness. But tis is just far too much - pure (slightly better) Master Brew. But it warms nicely.
