UPDATED: APR 23, 2009 Bottle from my trusty bottle shop. Absolutely love this stuff. Since they’ve got this in I’ve nailed plenty and spread the word to my heathen mates. Lovely and tasty and gets you very drunk. Fallen pleasantly asleep before 10.00pm which hasn’t happened since I’ve been about ten. Light gold, blonde colour with tiny cheeky little bubbly white head. Got that Gouden Carolus kinda lick to it. Sweet, gorgeous, hard as nails. Don’t know what else to say, I love it.

Cobra (1100) - Banned City, - JUN 30, 2008
750 ml. bottle. Corked and caged. No freshness date noticed. Loud pop released the cork. Poured out a hazy yellow color, like dried out straw. Has a foamy off white head. Aromas are of spices, pepper, dried lemon rinds. Flavors are of rotten pineapples, over ripe apples, dried, sulfured apricots. Some malts mix in, but this beast needs some serious aging on it to be well blended. Might be good in 5-6 years or so. Finished dry, funky, and sulfurous.

MatSciGuy (907) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 29, 2008
[Bottle] Pours a clear gold with a large, fluffy white head. Aroma is citric hoppiness, a little bit of spices, some candi sugar, and a little bit of alcohol. Flavor follows nicely, with the spices and alcohol being prominent players. Fairly sweet but not cloying. Sharp, crisp flavor with a little bit of hop bitterness on the finish.
