fonefan (35220) - VestJylland, DENMARK - FEB 9, 2009
Bottle 30cl. @ home.
Clear medium orange color with a average, frothy, good lacing, mostly lasting - diminishing, off-white to white head. Aroma is moderate to light heavy malty, sugar, alcohol, mazipan notes. Flavor is light heavy sweet with a long to average duration, and a alcohol - peppery after burn. Body is medium, texture is oily and sticky, carbonation is soft, finish feel is moderate alcoholic.

yespr (31480) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - DEC 5, 2008
30 cL bottle. Pours deep golden orange, clear and with a semi fizzy white head. Dense malty, breadish, and alcohol aroma. Flavour is smooth malty with a solid body from the alchohol. Alcohol does show warmth, but not burning nor flavourwise too dominant. Gets somewhat cloying after half a bottle. Despite the nice aroma and flavour the alcohol gets too dominant in the end.

Ungstrup (29485) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 7, 2004
A dark yellow beer with a fine white head. The aroma is dominated by alcohol, but also malt is present. The flavor is extremely strong and sweet with lots of alcohol and notes of peaches. Not my type of beer, but for the style I think this is a good interpretation.

Papsoe (25085) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - AUG 8, 2005
(Bottle 30 cl) fully golden - almost amber coloured. Extremely strong lager type, speeded up with sugar and brewing syrup. Very potent and full-bodied and very hard to drink because of an almost burning alcohol. No real pleasure. 030503

   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 11/20
joergen (21087) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 5, 2010
Bottle at Papsø. Cloudy orange coloured with a small off white head. Sweet aroma of malts and caramel with notes of marzipan and alcohol. Sweet flavour of malts and caramel with notes of alcohol. Sweet finish.

oh6gdx (20621) - Vasa, FINLAND - MAY 11, 2007
Bottled. Golden colour, with a minor white head. Aroma is alcohol, some fruits and a lot of alcohol. Flavour is alcohol, big malty kick as well as some metal and very sweet fruits/berries. Actually not too bad for being a Malt Liquor, mainly it is the alcohol that makes it slightly unpleasant.

   AROMA 3/10   APPEARANCE 1/5   TASTE 2/10   PALATE 1/5   OVERALL 6/20
omhper (19671) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - FEB 1, 2007
Bottled at Monk’s Café, Stockholm. Deep golden, minimal head. Light caramelly nose. Very sweet with hard mouthfeel covered in cloying syrup. Sugary and unrefined. Molasses and syrup hides the alcohol well, but the flavour pays a dear prize. Definitely not good.

anders37 (16932) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAY 9, 2006
Bottle. Clear golden colour with a small white head. Has a sweet malty aroma with hints of alcohol. The flavor is sweet malty and warming from the alcohol. Sweet malty aftertaste with lots of alcohol.

madmitch76 (15336) - , Essex, ENGLAND - MAY 22, 2011

Very slightly hazy gold beer. Soft palate. Low carbonation. Rich malt, sweet and strong with an unsurprising brandy - cognac like undertone. Somewhat one dimensional but for a super strong lager - quite quaffable!

UPDATED: APR 4, 2010 2010-04-03, mini 10cl bottle, as Kanon Schot, 6-4-7-3-14=34
Hazy amber color. Sweet aroma, nutty-malty. Oxidised. The flavor is a bit more interesting: sweet caramel and malt, with a nice raisin fruitness and just limited oxidisation. Is it saccharin what I feel in the end? Sweet and funny.

Golden color; big thick head. Strange aroma: rhum, raisins, malt. Strong body, alcoholic, warming, sweet, malty. Ends with a strong bitterness. Somehow surprising.
