2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Copper, with a white head. Nose is sweet with spicy notes of coriander and black pepper. Flavor is sweet, with a funny copper/metallic note. Presents the back of your throat with harsh peppery alcoholic sensations. Texture is quite thin and watery, and it leaves a bitter finish, like chewing on fresh twigs.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark golden with a larger bubbled cream colored head. Light malt with undertones of earth and light fruit. Thick and sweet start with a slight bite on the tongue. Hops and alcohol are in the finish to sweep the sweetness away and gives an nearly immediate "buzz". Warming and fulfilling. This would be a great brew for an evening after being on the slopes. A blonde bock malt liquor.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bronze color with a sweetish corn syrup, pepsi, malt aroma that translates, at first, into a surprisingly good flavor. After awhile, the flavor seems cloying, but not bad overall for a european strong ale. The alcohol is well masked.

Deep golden color with very little head. Straw nose. Slightly tart start sliding to sweetness in the middle. Mild hop flavor to finish. Nice

Strong, sweet, smooth elixir. Lagered syrup and very drinkable in small amounts, makes for a great end of session night cap. Staggering! Ouch my toe!!!

Amber in color. Fruity aroma. Sweet start, but I thought the alcohol over whelmed this beer (kind of numbed the taste buds). Was not super impressed with this beer. The mouth feel was a little too full.

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.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.
