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.

Odeurs d' épices douces, raisins secs, fruits de la passion. En bouche pas très gazeuse... Avec un goût assez plat je ne serait pas trop l'identifier...

24/V/14 - 33cl bottle @ Procrastinated Spontan Gent Tasting - BB: I/2014 (oops!) (2014-529) Thanks to Maja for the bottle!

Clear orange beer, small creamy white head, little stable, bit adhesive. Aroma: very sugary, honey, orange peel, pretty oxidized. MF: lots of carbon, medium body. Taste: sweet, sugary, alcohol, some citric acidity, honey, oxidized. Aftertaste: soft bitterness, grains, malt, pretty bitter, hint of almonds, very unpleasant. Pretty sure it’s not just age... :p

Bottle shared with tderoeck, many thanks! Golden colour, white foam, low carbonation. Very sweet with notes of candy. Very thin body, weak aroma. Watery, very easy drinkable.

Courtesy of & thanks to tderoeck. 33 cl. bottle sampled @ “Procrastinated Spontaneity /…………/ 2 Boekjes” tasting @ Gent. Pale golden with little white bubbles. Nose is very cheap honey, apples, sweeteners and a metallic edge. Taste is awful, rubbing alcohol taste and sensation, this stuff burns in your throat, rubbing alcohol and cheapest honey around, touch sugar, hay, lingering rubbing alcohol sensation in your throat aftertaste. Fizzy, oily and a bit watery. Truly awful stuff, only fit for getting terribly drunk as intended I suppose.

Bamsen78 (3078) - Sřnderborg, DENMARK - MAY 16, 2014
Bottle. Pours slightly hazy golden with airy white head. Clear aroma of yeast, with notes of malt and citrus. Sweet, malty flavour, with estery and hoppy notes. Sweetish aftertaste. Well... not my favourite.

Grzesiek79 (3177) - Radom, POLAND - MAY 11, 2014
Przecietne piwo. Lekko zamglone. dziwne w strong lagerze metnosc, nawet delikatna do tego w piwie egzotycznym. Tak wiec wyglad najciekawszy w tym wszystkim. Za duzo slodowosci taka nawet ulepkowa byla. Jakies konserwanty dodano, bo nieprzyjemna zgaga mnie zlapala po tym piwie. Chmielnosci wogole nie bylo, alkoholu przynajmniej sie nie wyczuwalo ale ogolne mierne mialem wrazenia po tym piwie

erickok (3491) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - 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)

Ins Glas ergießt sich ein dunkelgoldenes Bier mit ordentlicher Schaumkrone. Geruch sehr malzig süß, leicht alkoholisch. Geschmack süß malzig, getreidig, leicht alkoholisch.

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 ;-)
