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.

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.

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.

OleR (4767) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 11, 2009
Draught@Kulminator, Antwerp, labelled as Platinum Barley Wine. Tiny mostely lasting near-white head. Body is crystal clear, deep golden. Strange aroma of dry metallic apple cider and sweetish malts. Alcohol is noticeable both in aroma and flavor. Taste is acidic-sweet fruits, caramellish malts and a earthy bittering hops. Mid-bodied. Chewy texture. Sweet, lightly spiced finish. An oddball, reminds me of a superstrong Eurolager.

skortila (4424) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - JAN 5, 2009
75 cl. Magnum bottle. Really a beautifull bottle. Aroma has sweet caramel, raisin and bad hops. Clear, amber coloured beer with a cheap lookin head. The taste is very sweet, siruppy, caramel, some raisin. All in bad quality. An ugly wolf in pretty sheep wool. A Trabant engine inside an Ashton Martin. A Mcdonald’s burger in a 5 star restaurant. A Shania Twain cd inside a Rachmaninov package. And offcourse this list can be as endless as there are particles in the universe. Extra minus points for the contrast.

fata2683 (2176) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - JAN 4, 2009
25cl can, pours clear yellow with a thin white head. Smells sweet with some lemon and sugar cane notes topped off with some hop aromas. Flavors are very sweet with a big alcohol burn. This is unbelievably sweet, too much.

Thanks to rcasta who brought it all the way down from Porto, Portugal. Whew! This beer was created to get you drunk fast. Alcohol too overpowering.
