it is very bitter malty, the name says it, it hits like a thunder, the tastes are very well, but somehow unexpected. Nice to try, nice to tryu again, but you won't see me drinking it on a sunny terrace. But is is meaqnt to be strongm, en that promise is kept! and you can taste quality in all the ingredients

Golden coloured. Not much head. Lots of sweetness and malts in the aroma. In the flavour its alcahol and sweetness, with alcahol burn as the dominant taste impression. This is not a beer you drink in 2 minutes. It’s way to heavy. For me this is definately not a great beer, simply because of the alcahol dominans. A little below average is all I can give it.

jerohen (2058) - Bussum, NETHERLANDS - OCT 7, 2002
UPDATED: DEC 3, 2005 A powerful beer, which really forces you to drink it slowly. The 11,6% alcohol is overwhelming and causes a deep alcohol-burn. Might be ok to finish an evening of beer drinking, but don’t let it be the first.

eczematic (1321) - Adelaide, AUSTRALIA - SEP 10, 2002
horrifically repulsive. barely perceptible plums and passiona attempt to flail their way out of a sea of nail polish remover before being crushed by a tsunami of turps. call me a girl, but i’d prefer the pink grapefruit 2.5 any day.

UPDATED: JUL 3, 2003 The name ('The big Gun') says it all, it's a heavy one. When you take a lighter you can (after)burn your aftertaste. Strange enough it tastes kinda sweet. Rerate: I must have been in an optimistic mood to rate this one 2.8. It's not a good brew.

schuim (36) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 18, 2002
This beer is like drinking a lager with a shot of jenever in it. The aroma is of malt and sweetness but with a plain pilsener aroma (sulver) to it. The taste is like a weakly hopped pilsener. The aftertaste makes it clear that there is a lot of alcohol in it. This should have been a top fermenting beer, than it would have had taste to match the alcohol volume.
