erickok (4469) - Leuven, BELGIUM - MAY 2, 2014
Very, very clean golden body and stable frothy head. Very grainy, alcohol but strongly not too horrible. Actually carries some malty fullness. Taste is too sweet though, way too sweet. For what it is it is strangely not too bad, not horrible, but as a beer in the modern world it socks big time. Oh... Country tick! (33cl bottle from Saveur Bičre)

mutz (753) - NETHERLANDS - FEB 2, 2014
UPDATED: FEB 12, 2014 Fles van 625 ml gekocht bij de wineshop in Dambulla, Sri Lanka. Gouden kleur, plakkererige kraag. Aroma en smaak zijn niet erg aanwezig, vooral wat zoetigs. Het smaakt in ieder geval niet waterig en de 8.8 % doen hun werk ;-)

Douberd (3728) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - NOV 17, 2013
Bottle at home, 330 ml. Into a stemmed glass. ABV 8.8% Pours a really deep golden yellow colour beer, with two finger of white head. Thick density, average retention. Medium lacing on the glass. Aroma is sweet, lots of malts and the alcohol already present. Not bad, but after a while it starts to smell kind of medicinal and that’s not so good either. Taste is also very sweet and malty. Grass, strong alcohol -not so obvious on the tongue but notable once has gone down-, grains. Medium thick body, carbonation good but towards the low side. Although nothing impressive but still manages to taste better than the local supermarket strong beers.

Erzengel (6248) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - NOV 13, 2013
Dark golden in the glass, white head. No real smell. The beer starts a bit sweet, highly drinkable and fruity. In the mainpart comes to the fruity nose a bit of alcohol. The aftertaste is a bit sharp, alcohol, malty-sweetness, not mine.
--> the 8.8% are noticeable all the time, the beer is quite sweet and has a huge lack of aroma.
--> 3/5/2/3

caplinlee (37) - KAZAKHSTAN - AUG 18, 2013
Bought in a shop in Sri Lanka. I brought this beer home from my holiday to Sri Lanka but unfortunately about 25% of the beer managed to seep through the top into my suitcase. As it was a 625 ml bottle I still had a fair bit to taste. Anyway, I wasn’t a great lover of it however despite it being the strongest beer I’ve ever tried I didn’t think the alcohol was overpowering and this was more than drinkable. So although not a thumbs up from me It’s still the best strong beer I’ve tried.

Idiosynkrasie (5335) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JUL 19, 2013
330ml bottle. Minimally cloudy golden colour with average to huge, frothy to creamy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Flat grainy aroma, a touch of hay, very cautious hints of citrus. Taste is minimally sweet pale malty, slightly chalky and metallic, some husk, hints of alcohol in the finish.
