onlyrocknroll (379) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - FEB 26, 2008
UPDATED: FEB 28, 2008 Lovely red colour with a respectable head. Caramel malt aroma with some alcohol. Sweet flavour, also with caramel and alcohol, nothing else going on really. When I drink beer with this high an abv I expect some flavour but overall this is simply two-dimensional and bland.

SilkTork (5218) - Rochester, Kent, United Kingdom, Kent, ENGLAND - SEP 21, 2007
UPDATED: JAN 6, 2013
Sept, 2007 330ml bottle from Carrefour, France. A soft, sweetish strong beer with mild spice notes. Alcohol fumes. It’s a little rough round the edges, but is easy drinking and mostly quite pleasant. It’s possibly a strong lager rather than either a Scotch Ale or Barley Wine. I detect few ale notes. [2.4]
Jan, 2013 500ml can from Carrefour in Tamur, Belgium. Cheap can of strong lager. Amber coloured with malty flavours. An Ambree or Amber lager or Vienna lager, depending on which country it’s brewed in. Quite soft. Whiskey aroma and flavour notes from some added artificial whiskey flavouring. Sweet caramel notes. Pleasant and easy drinking. [2.6]

oh6gdx (20330) - Vasa, FINLAND - SEP 8, 2007
Bottled. Deep amber colour, mediumsized beige head. Aroma is fruits, alcohol and some malty and quite hoppy hints too. Flavour is the same. I would have guesses the style for a fruitish Malt Likka, but apparently it’s an ale...

screwball (1099) - Motala, SWEDEN - AUG 23, 2007
Red clear body and a creamy offwhite head. Aroma: Sweet malt, burnt sugar, nuts and grass. Flavor is way to sweet, litte sour. Also a hopy grassy feel. To much strong alcohol taste.
