On tap @ Les Fleurs du Malt (Lyon). Black with a small persistent beige head and some lacing. Aroma is boozy (of course) with roasted malt and green peppers. Taste is of alcohol (boozy), malt sweetness (though it’s mostly hidden by alcohol), roasted malt, green peppers, light bitterness and a burning finish. Full bodied. Low carbonation. It’s not awful and, in some ways, in tasty. But it’s not actually fun to drink. Too boozy. Nothing stands out. Still a decent sipper.

Bottle thanks to Rainer. Pours a cloudy brown with beige head that leaves spotty lacing. The aroma is peat, smoke, and oak. Medium mouthfeel with strong peat, booze, smoke, and alcohol burn. Good.

Plovmand (6176) - Helsinge, DENMARK - MAR 7, 2014
Bottle at home. Pours dark brown with a small beige head. The aroma is oak, tar, smoke, roasted malts, soy and fruits from the tequila barrel. The flavor is extremely powerful. Loads of alcohol but also dark fruit, soy, smoke, soy and a pleasant hoppy bite. Beer taken to its extreme. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

PriorL (1279) - Gent, BELGIUM - FEB 12, 2014
Bottle, shared with Mathieu87. APPEARANCE: black beer, little to no foam. NOSE: alcohol, sweet, caramel. TASTE: lots and lots of alcohol, tequila probably, but this is over the top, not enjoyable anymore...

Eructoblaster (2855) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 6, 2014
Bottle - 375ml. Pours an opaque black body with a thin beige foamy head. Fantastic, complex malty/hoppy aroma with whisky, oaky, fruity, and some vanilla hints. Alcohol is noticeable without being too agressive. Its strong malty/hoppy taste carries roasty, whisky, tequila, licorice, and oaky notes. Ends with a long, robust, warming bittersweet finish. Very good pick to celebrate my 10th anniversary on Ratebeer!
