Pleasant orange color and good head. The first sip kicked my ass with malt. That was unexpected. After that it seemed more balanced (probably seemed stronger since I wasn’t expecting it). A little to syrupy. Pretty sweet, and you really notice the alcohol. Interesting beer.

A best strong lager beer. It’s taste is absolutely unforgetable. The aftertaste is a bit too sweetish and the foam could last longer. Not for people who like classic taste of lager with some bitterness. Hevelius Kaper is far away from bitter.

UPDATED: DEC 3, 2008 Polished bronze colour. The aroma is full of pale malt, a little alcohol with hints of caramel and acetaldehyde. Firm, alcoholic body, with lots of sweet caramel and bread malts. Clean, brawny lager with decent balance but little panache.

Amber golden colored. Hugh head in a BSA glass. Head sinks back quickly, but the lace, syrupy, sticks to the glass, like a good port. Malt and hop aroma. Vanilla, mild tobacco, and fruit flavors with a mildly sweet finish. I let the last few sips sit idle for a while and the finish was even more syrupy. Nice surprise, yet wierd.

A mega-strong beer for times when you wanna get just wasted but don’t want to endure Malt Liquor hell. Burns going down the hatch.

If I had tasted this blind, I’d have confused it for something Belgian. Warming and complex, a powerhouse in all respects yet somehow not too heavy. Excellent.

A bit of alcohol taste in this one. Nice flavor, good color, head dissapates quickly. Nima at Shangy’s called this the poor man LaChouffe. Not the same taste, but nice nontheless.

Pour is initially frothy but quickly dissipates. Rich amber color, sweet caramel/malty flavor. Call this a poor man’s Belgiun Strong. A very nice beer!

hefty beer. alchohol is present in both the flavor and nose. has a slight sweet note - but is more sugary than malty. not very bitter. reminds me of a british strong ale. not that complex but well balanced and quite tasty. I like it!

First sweet and malty, then very bitter and much alcohol, maybe too much.
